We very much liked Fyne Audio's first offering, so we were looking forward to seeing whether Fyne's F302 could keep up the momentum.
And it does, with a full-bodied and entertaining presentation. Timing is fantastic, as is the floorstander's dynamic range - and there's plenty of presence at the lower end.
Fyne has produced another class-leader for the cracking price of just £400.
