    This is my first time owning a Fluance turntable RT80 and was pleasantly surprised at the price and performance and the build of the product. It was also easy to assemble and set up. It was a big step up from my old turntable.

    I finally decided to play vinyl records again after so many years of enjoying digital music (CDs, Mini Discs, WAV format, etc.). I used to have turntables way back in the 80's and have given them away a long time ago when CD's became more popular. I still mostly listen to my collection of CDs up to now and I got a turntable just to have one and enjoy the whole process of putting the record on the turntable and lifting the tonearm to your vinyl record.

    I am impressed with the looks of my RT80 considering its price. But I am really disappointed and bothered with its inconsistent speed. I only have 33 1/3 RPM records and as I play them, I would clearly hear that the speed goes faster and sometimes slower, this is especially noticeable when I play my jazz albums. Because of this, I measured the speed of my turntable using an app on my phone, it varies from 33.1 to 33.9 within the duration while the app is measuring the speed, this is what really annoys me. Honestly, I do not mind if it is not exactly 33 1/3 but at least stay in one speed more or less. Playing pop or rock albums, it is less noticeable.

    For my purpose I will keep it, but I am really disappointed.

    Pro:
    Great sound on this model. I loved that it was easy to set up with a little help from the Fluance setup video on Youtube.
    Con:
    Finger print magnet, so be aware of that.

    Outstanding quality and attention to detail! The meticulous packaging alone was a testament of the dedication to customer service. The sound quality is unbelievable. Best of all, it's Canadian!

    The turntable was fairly easy to assemble. The manual was clear and concise. Balancing the lever arm does require passing the eye-test, but I don't see a way around that.
    I did initially have some trouble getting the turntable to play on my speakers (it sounded extremely faint and was coming from the turntable itself for awhile), but after talking with an extremely helpful customer support representative, I was able to figure the issue out (Thanks Sean!).

    I had some problems with my purchase, I was disappointed, but Fluance totally refunded it as expressed in their 30-day money back policy. I am impressed and I thank Fluance for its integrity and after-sales service. Bravo !!!

    I really like this turntable. I have it connected to a 60's era Fisher tube amplifier and the sound is great. The quality is outstanding for the price. I like the fact that you can change the head shell too.
