Tech Crunch Reviews the Fluance RT81 HiFi Turntable
"The walnut finish gives the RT81 one of the best looks of any entry-level turntable I’ve seen. It’s sturdier and heavier than some of the cheaper turntables out there from brands like Crosley and Denon."

Great turntable for the price. Well made and easy to set up.Michael 5
RT-81 Turntable...an excellent value.Todd Grove 5
Like it's simplicity and appearance. Dislike the fact that after record is played, it stops with stylus down.
Easy to set up and adjust. Sounds incredible. Much better than all of my previous turntables. Has a great look to it as well. It feels very well built.David K 5
Upon unboxing and setup the speed was spot on and the stylus was dialed in too, sounds very beautiful.Nate H 5
Great product. It came pre set and after double checking was happy to happy to see everything was set perfectly.Steven R 5
Fantastic sounding turntable listened to differnet genras of music from clasic rock to more modern hip-hop all sounds great. Had a great experience with customer service agent Dawn, had an issue the weight stabilizer that whould not fit the spinal on the Turntable at all. Sent an email to customer service. Sent all pictures they requested and received a new weight within a week. Other than the price of the RT81 went down a couple weeks after I bought it. All is ex excellent.Louie S 5
Shipped to NZ without a hassle and arrived in excellent condition. Excellent packaging inside the box and easy to assemble. For the exchange rate plus shipping, I could have bought another brand in NZ but I wanted a Fluance : )Paul 5
Not a purist or aficionado on turntables so not sure what to expect but sounds good to me !
After numerous attempts following instructions exactly I am unable to correctly adjust tonearm & use turntable.Kevin K 2
Once I got the ground loop humming issue solved (I had to wire the ground to a cold water pipe) it worked perfectly. Easy set up, spins perfectly. Solid turntable!!!Nick 5

RT81 sounded good and looks beautiful but there's a few concerns.Carlos B. 3
*Cueing lever feels so flimsy and will probably will not last
*RCA cables are cheap, WTH Fluance!
*Speed was way off! I mean not expecting 33.3 but 33.78!
*Provision for the 45 adapter should have been thought out..
Looks great and is super easy to assemble. Beautiful sound quality.Richard 5
I'm a newcomer to the vinyl turntable experience, but can't imagine a better turntable. The build quality is excellent, and so is the audio quality. Having a built in preamp and auto-stop are great for me, but knowing that I can bypass the built in pre-amp down the road and upgrade to a separate one is awesome.Trey P 5
I like this turntable. It is well built and looks nice. The setup process was nice and smooth. The auto on/off feature is nice. I am not an expert in turn tables, so I can't make a lot of comparisons. After more research I wish I had spent just a little more money on an upgraded model, but I still think this is a really good value for my needs just starting out.See all reviews Amazon Customer 4
