    i found the Acrylic platter a worthy upgrade to my RT82 and I could hear the subtle difference in the playback especially the low rumble of the aluminum platter that was present.
    One problem i ran into is the cue lever lift was'nt allowing the tone arm to go down all the way making the stylus float in the groove causing much distortion.
    with a few clockwise turns of the screw on the tone arm lift which lowered it a mm or two, problem solved works and sounds great.

    Well worth money to upgrade my RT83 for this sweet looking platter.

    The acrylic platter reduces static and brings out greater separation of instruments. Everything comes together with improved pace and fluidity

    The biggest take away from the acrylic platter upgrade is the improvements made to stereo separation and bass response. It really took my table to the next level. It easily punches higher than my much more expensive Music Hall with similar upgrades. Highly recommend this.

    I am a big fan of the weight and aesthetics of this platter. I think it completely tightens upmand wow or flutter that was already minimal with the aluminum platter. The thickness is my biggest gripe. Why build 90% of the line-up with a aluminum platter with the exact same dimensions WITH the additional 2mm of a rubber mat then sell one model preloaded and the upgrade path to the acrylic without accounting for the missing 2mm of the rubber mat??? I had loaded a fairly thin vintage pressing Doobie brothers record and the tone arm was so much lower without the rubberat that it was basically bouncing on the lowered tone arm lift. I wouldn't mind this if it wasn't so heavily advertised to run this platter without a mat and playing directly on it. Yeah that would make total sense to me if the platter didn't throw the VTA out of wack without the means to adjust for it aside from adding back the 2mm via a slip mat.

    Impressed and surprised at the improvement in sound quality with the acrylic platter on my RT 82. Definitely some highs and lows coming out of the vinyl that was not there before. Would have thought though that there might have bee an installation or product sheet in the box other =than just bubble wrap.

    I wasnt sure if this would make a difference when i bought it but i can tell you they're is certainly more of a punch and FAR less static. Just get it.

    After a shipping accident made my first new platter unusable and with some great customer service from Shalamar getting the replacement I finally got to try out the Fluance acrylic platter. I have improved my turntable in an incremental fashion. I started with ordering an RT82. I loved the sound. Then I added an acrylic platter mat and that helped a little bit with static and sound. Then I added the 2M Red cartridge creating still better sound. The platter was still more improvement. Like others have said I should have gone with the RT85 right away as I'll likely take the next step soon with the addition of the 2M Blue cartridge. Plus this platter looks awesome.

    Very solid aesthetic upgrade for the non R85s. Looks very complete. It also has helped with the bit of static that would come along, usually on B side when flipped and the little pops that causes. I'm very happy with it. I can't speak to the improvement in over all sound as my system likely wouldn't notice.
    I did have an issue when it was delivered first as it was just put in a small bubble wrap envelope and a plastic envelope. It looked like it was dropped during shipping and damaged. Fluance couldn't have been better with a super fast return and replacement. The replacement was shipped in a box in perfect shape. These things happen, and you won't find better customer service. Dawn was excellent helping me through it.

    This platter looks fantastic on the turntable if you didn't get the R85. It seems to have helped with static, which has helped get rid of those little noises that come up now and then, especially where I have it located. I probably should have just got the R85 to start, but absolutely love the upgrade either way. I'd need a better system to tell if makes too much of a difference quality wise, but it really completes the turn table.

    I wanted to try the new platter and it does definitely improve the sound across the spectrum. Plus it looks pretty cool. Not a bad buy to get better sound. I have the RT-83 turntable. Try the upgrade I think you will enjoy..

    Buying the acrylic platter was the best upgrade I could have done to my RT84 turntable. It had improved the overall sound. I’ve read all the reviews and thought snake oil. The only problem was the packaging, big box and paper plastic cover was off the platter swimming unprotected in the box. Great product but you need to do better on the packaging

    Much higher mass than the stock platter, which keeps speeds even more stable (and W&F is already pretty good with the stock platter.) Looks pretty slick when the turntable's sitting there without a record on it.

    Only criticism I have is that mine isn't quite cut with diamond precision... when it's spinning, there are noticeable dips and valleys on the edges that don't affect performance but just don't look very good, especially because light is refracted really well through the sides. Again, not a performance issue, and the top is perfectly flat. It's mainly just the corners of the edges where I notice it. Just a cosmetic thing; you can see the little imperfections going around and around endlessly, and it's hard not to look at it.
