    Great starter turntable to play old records in the basement while doing other activities. The auto shut off and built in pre are a plus. BTW, cannot beat the price performance ratio for this. Definitely a keeper.

    Zach S December 28, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Illinois, United States

    Overall, it's nice. It looks nice (although there was a small dent from shipping), and performs well. BUT. I ordered in March. Set it up in April, and used about once a week for an hour or so. Then in July the tonearm bridge just wouldn't stay up anymore. The weight of the the tonearm would force it down. This is frustrating, and I expected a little better quality for $200.

    Eric T December 26, 2020 Advanced Listener - 10 Years California, United States

    Gave this turntable to my son for Christmas. I had recently purchased an RT85 and love it! My son is starting off on the vinyl journey, and I wanted him to start off with a quality turntable. It sounds great and looks great! Thank you !

    Eduardo F December 24, 2020 Novice Listener - 3 Years Oregon, United States

    Best option of turntable for the budget and with the possibility to upgrade lots of parts

    Jeremy H December 18, 2020 Advanced Listener - 4 Years New York, United States

    Amazing turntable, I absolutely love it and the quality for the price that you get. This is totally worth it and aesthetically looks great.

    Larissa L December 1, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 5 Years Ontario, Canada

    Was so impressed with how fast shipping was. Absolutely love the product, everything came in good condition and very easy to set up. Will definitely purchase from fluance again soon!

    Lauren November 12, 2020 Novice Listener - 5 Years Ontario, Canada

    Fantastic turntable. Built in preamp solved some problems. Nice to support a Canadian company too.

    si.yrxkrru1t3177 September 21, 2020

    Probably the best record player I've ever acquired. No joke. Love this beautiful device.

    Jonathan, A E September 19, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Minnesota, United States

    A perfect entry point to get back into vinyl. Absolutely fantastic for the price point, highly recommended.

    Gnosis September 13, 2020

    Had a bit of trouble assembling this (probably more due to me not being mechanically inclined), but once I got it going it worked great! I love my new record player!

    Lucylam September 11, 2020

    Came with missing part. Very disappointing.

    Richard September 6, 2020

    Starter record players aren't worth it. Start with this one, it is. Great sound, great balance so it doesn't destroy your records and easy instructions to set it up.

    Ryan W September 5, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Massachusetts, United States

    Cartridge is slanted creating additional wear and noise on the records. Customer service was incredibly slow, and frankly useless. After a week of back and forth taking pics over and over, I was sent a part I didn't need and I had to unassemble and reassemble the tonearm on my own following links I googled online. Don't bother with Fluance. Waiting on info on how to return now.

    Jeremy H August 30, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 3 Years Florida, United States

    I know the RT80 is the 'least' in the line, but it still screams quality. My cartridge alignment was dead on, the finish is gorgeous, following the set up instructions was super simple. Speed is accurate and consistent. The built in pre-amp sounds great to my ears. Auto stop kicks in after a few revolutions, which is really cool if you have albums where the artist put an Easter egg in the run out groove. On top of all that, it can grow with me with simple upgrades as my budget allows. The RT80 is an easy deck to recommend - there's nothing close to it in the $200 price range in my opinion.

    Hamilton N August 26, 2020 Audiophile - 9 Years California, United States

    It was a really solid product and I would definitely recommend it!
