    For the price a great turntable, all products sold by Fluance are exceptional. What do you have to lose, return if not happy with performance.

    This is a fabulous turntable at a great price. It is sleek looking and will modernize any living space. I have used it with the built in pre-amp and with a separate one and both have yielded excellent audio quality.

    However, what I want to focus on is the customer service. Have full faith in Fluance's support. They are responsive and diligent when contacting them.

    Highly recommend.

    This was a huuuuuge upgrade in sound quality from my other record player.

    Andrew June 28, 2021

    For the price, I thought it would last longer than 3 years. The sound output slowly died, followed the instructions after contacting Fluance, and now I’m stuck with a $200 paperweight, with no options from Fluance for repair. Sounded great while it worked!

    Sound quality is very good on this turntable with preamp and direct connection to my receiver phono input.

    Brent H May 27, 2021

    Great product for the price. I was able to get it for $169.00. Straightforward set up. Tone arm is weighed and has an antiskate dial. I think this is is better than a turntable for which I paid $285.00. I highly recommend this as a starter; I’m using it as a second turntable

    The first turntable I buy. I was looking for a good and inexpensive one. I bought it with some fear, but I was surprised by the sound. It is precisely what I was looking for. Some audiophiles underestimate it but it really does deliver tremendous sound. And not to mention the design, on the internet it looks nice but in reality it is even more beautiful. I am in love with my Fluance.

    This is my second Fluance turntable. I bought the RT 82 last year and recently purchased the RT 80. Both work perfectly, silently and track just as they should. Because I have different amplifiers and speakers connected to them, it is hard to compare sound quality. If I conducted a blind test of the two, my guess is I would not hear the difference. Except for a missing cover hinge on the RT 80, both arrived with excellent condition with instructions logically written by articulate english speakers. And when I called to ask for the missing hinge, I talked with a pleasant, knowledgeable customer service women at the company in Canada.

    Delivery on time, very well protected, very nice components and cartridge, beautiful too. M
    Been using vinyl since the 70s, and this is my third one. As nice as my Kenwood and Technics from then. Love it.
