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. "Read the Full Review
Digital Trends Review of the RT81
"Music played on the record player was deep and smooth with excellent clarity. In general, there was low distortion, sparkling treble, and strong bass across the records we listened to, from Broadway to Drake."Read the Full Review
Sounds incredible and the look is chic and modern. Highly recommend
It's everything I was hoping for. Made of high quality and very easy to set up. It's perform better flawlessly. The RT81 turned out to be turntable is perfect! Except for one thing. Please Fluance people make a receiver that'll go with the turntable & speakers. One with a the cool retro feel just like the RT81. Like those old retro receivers that have a metal face plate with knobs and switches/buttons. I've got the turntable, I've got the speakers now I need the receiver to complete the set.
I've had the turntable for a little over a week and used it every day since. No problems so far.
I did a lot of research before buying the RT81 turntable.
The rubber mat is high quality, the base is solid and heavy.
The turntable just overall looks fantastic.
Sounds great. A really nice turntable at a great price.
I love it!
Beautiful looking, well crafted.
Very happy with my turntable and the service I got from Fluance. Set-up was easy and the YouTube video illustrating how to balance the tonearm was very helpful. The only issue I have is that the lettering/graphics on the turntable are hard to read. The gray lettering used does not contrast enough with the rosewood base making it almost impossible to see. Other than that, the turntable has met all of my expextations.
I'm very happy with my RT81 purchase. The turntable arrived safely and securely packaged with no damage. It's beautiful to look at and looks great in my living room.
More importantly it sounds wonderful! I had intended to swap in my Ortofon Red cartridge but the included Audio-Technica cartridge sounds fantastic so I'm holding off on that and very happy I went with the RT81 over the RT80.
The included phono stage also sounds better than my Rotel RA-12's built-in phono stage and I'm very pleased with the sound.
For the price, there really isn't much better. Assembling the turntable was a fantastic experience, extremely easy and felt well designed. My only complaint was that it arrived in three boxes (one inside of the other, inside of the last), but that's pretty minor. Aesthetics are fantastic, too. Just make sure that if you're pairing it with a wooden stand/component rack that the finish matches.
I chose Fluance's RT81 high-fidelity turntable to meet my needs for playing traditional LP and EP vinyl records on the grounds that:
1. I like classical and lyrical music. The design and configuration of RT81 is suitable for this kind of demand. The belt drive is stable and quiet, which guarantees the restoration of pure sound quality.
2.Audio Technica AT95E stylus RT81 is another perfect choice, AT95E plays more music, its oval stylus minimizes noise and distortion, so that music clarity and channel balance can be guaranteed;
3. More like the S-shaped arm of the RT81.
I will connect to my Marantz sound system so that the RT81 has a better performance. I will write my experience and share it with you.
Many thanks to Mr. Sean for giving guidance and help during my purchase of RT81!
I love the Fluance RT81. It's beautiful with the walnut finish. The design is clean and very high quality. It's also very quiet.
I love this turntable, it was so easy to setup and has performed flawlessly every time I have used it. I can't recommend it or Fluance in general enough!!
The Fluance RT81 turntable Is my first turntable as an adult and I must say that I'm very impressed. Starting with the packaging, it arrived at my door secure and undamaged. The construction materials are top notch which is revealed with the sound quality. The setup process is user friendly. I highly recommend the RT81.
This turntable exceeded my expectations. It is well constructed and records sound amazing. I highly recommend!
Great record player, I really like the look of the wood. I'm not an audiophile, but this was a greta upgrade from my very entry level record player I had prior. The audio quality is amazing, really glad that I picked this up!See all reviews
