The Fyne Audio Vintage Classic VIII is a 8" Floorstanding Classic speaker in a vintage style cabinet and built in Scotland. Imagine an Open Fire, glass of Single Malt (Insert your favourite tipple) and listening to Nina Simone and you get the vibe. There is an openess and ease to a large drive unit and Fyne Audio have got the pedigree to produce a clean, big sounding speaker that doesnt take up alot of space.
Employing a host of modern design elements perfected in the 500SP and 700 models, the Vintage Classic series might look like a 70s classic, but it is bang up to date and very easy to live with.

Tall, slim and elegant, the Vintage Classic VIII builds on the SM version with a larger floorstanding cabinet for a fuller, richer and more engaging sound. True to the Vintage Classic Series, the VIII is built within a rectangular cabinet with rich walnut veneer panels and striking baffle detail, including anodised gold trim and analogue control knobs set on a dedicated panel detailing frequency response graphs. Using the 200mm (8”) Vintage Classic IsoFlare with FyneFlute roll surround and proven 25mm magnesium dome compression tweeter, this sumptuously retro design integrates a smaller form factor BassTrax porting system to deliver phenomenal bass from the relatively compact cabinet. Finished with the Vintage Classic woven cloth grille, the VIII will integrate seamlessly into any room.
