Fyne Audio F501SP
The Special Production Fyne Audio F501SP is a UK built version of the award-winning F501 loudspeaker.
Building on the outstanding sonic performance and aesthetics of the original model, the F501SP benefits extensively from technology developed for the premium F700 Series.
The IsoFlare point source driver uses a 150mm (6”) multi-fibre bass / midrange cone with FyneFlute surround, coupled with the 25mm magnesium dome compression tweeter.
With an upgraded crossover to seamlessly integrate the drivers with the F501 cabinet, the SP adds Fyne’s signature aluminium sandwich plinth to enhance stability and further refine the BassTrax downward firing porting system.
The connection panel has also been upgraded and features a fifth terminal to ground the driver chassis and reduce the influence of RF interference in the circuit.
Celebrating this UK Special Production with enhanced cosmetics, the F501SP benefits from diamond machine cut detailing on the aluminium driver chassis, an anodised machined aluminium plinth and the option of a Piano Gloss Walnut real wood veneer finish.
Special Production (SP) models distil some of Fyne’s best components and engineering into a unique loudspeaker, optimised by their Technical Director Dr Paul Mills and hand built in the UK by the Special Projects team.
Improving on the F501, the SP edition uses the premium 150mm (6in) IsoFlare driver and 150mm (6in) bass/mid driver from the F701, featuring rigid multi-fibre cones and FyneFlute roll surrounds.
The IsoFlare’s 25mm magnesium compression tweeter has a unique HF wave guide pole piece delivering an incredibly even, full-range frequency response and outstanding musical imaging.
The F501SP also benefits from the F700’s advanced crossover components and aluminium sandwich type plinth with BassTrax tractrix profile bass diffuser, re-engineered to precisely tune the F502SP’s more compact cabinet.
The result is a stunning, bespoke addition to the F500 series, available in high-gloss black and high gloss white as standard, or in a new, luxurious deep gloss lacquered walnut veneer with diamond machine cut finish on the aluminium chassis.
