Located outside Glasgow, in an area that's also home to Linn Products and Tannoy Ltd. — Fyne Audio got off to a fast start. Only three years after the company's 2017 founding, Fyne already has distribution deals in 50 countries and offers 24 products in seven series.
What is the secret of their success? There's a clue on the company's homepage, which claims "more than 200 years of experience" among Fyne employees: The founders are a core group of former senior managers from Tannoy Ltd.—including former Tannoy operations director Gabriel O'Donohue, product development director Stuart Wilkinson, and Dr. Paul Mills, who spent 27 years as Tannoy's director of research and engineering and now serves as Fyne's technical director.
Fyne F501 Floorstanding Loudspeaker
"a broad, well defined sound stage, solid stereo focus and a lavish amount of detail. No nuance of Krall’s phrasing, no creak of double-bass fretboard, no lingering decay of a piano note is ignored"
