    Benjamin July 18, 2019 Novice Listener - 1 Year New York, United States

    Sound really good for the price.

    Reid June 27, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 18 Years Georgia, United States

    It may be the best turntable setup I could have gotten for under $500.

    Brian C. M April 30, 2019 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Iowa, United States

    After my cousin told me about the Record Store Day sale at Fluance, I finally decided to make the purchase since it was such an awesome deal. My current setup was too vintage looking and I definitely wanted some more modern that played just as well. Since my cousin did most of the research, I trusted his judgment and he wasn’t wrong. This turntable is beautiful and just what I wanted in a modern, clean look with the quality I was looking for. The speakers are okay compared to my old KLH speakers but are superior with their Bluetooth capability which I love. Overall, I would definitely recommend Fluance to anyone in the market for a quality setup.

    Josh G April 30, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 2 Years Texas, United States

    I had high hopes for this purchase and I’ve NOT been disappointed. Originally I wanted to get the RT83 turntable and the Ai40 speakers, but I wasn’t ready to write that proverbial check. I watched it for months and then a special was offered on the RT81 with the Ai40 speakers bundled. I chose to drop down a couple of models and hope they would still be good enough. Doing so I saved quite a bit of money.

    The packages arrived, very nicely packed by the way, the setup was really easy, and the sound and quality met and even exceeded my expectations. We love it!

    I really would have liked to get the RT83, but honestly I am so pleased with this purchase, and my checking account is healthier because of it.

    I’m coming from an all-in-one Crosley Nomad and into the RT81. Honestly, it’s like we’ve moved from a base model KIA sedan to a BMW. The quality of parts and the sound is light years beyond our Crosley. That said, I know you can go up and up from here, but for someone who is not an audiophile, though I am way more serious about this than the average guy, and I’ve done many, many hours of research...this has been a wonderful upgrade! I’ve already recommended it to my friend John in Florida and he got the same model and he loves it as well.

    Matthew Z April 4, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 10 Years Mississippi, United States

    Great product, and great customer service! Works very well, sounds awesome, and they helped me with any setup difficulties I had; well recommended

    Dwayne E. Cyrus April 1, 2019 Novice Listener - 1 Year West Virginia, United States

    Sounds great. Easy set-up. The speakers work well with the turntable. With a pre-amp already in the turntable and active speakers, it is ready to go out of the box.

    Raymond March 8, 2019 Novice Listener - 1 Year California, United States

    This is a very good combo for a newcomer to vinyl. The turntable is well built and the sound quality out of the speakers are superb. The speakers have a very deep bass which is amazing for their size. The only downside I have against this combo is I didn't know the RT81 doesn't have adjustable feet so it's not very easy to adjust out of the box.

    Raymond L March 6, 2019 Novice Listener - 1 Year California, United States

    Very nice deal for turntable and speakers bundle. The speakers are a bit smaller than I anticipated but they packed a deep and powerful bass. I have never owned a turntable before but overall I liked the sound and build quality of RT81. I’m also a bit surprised that the feet of RT81 is not height adjustable so it was a bit tricky to get the perfect level. That’s the only downside I have found in the turntable.

    Mathieu February 28, 2019 Novice Listener - 1 Year Quebec, Canada

    excellent rapport qualité/prix ! Le son est magnifique et le look est incroyable !

    Justin O February 2, 2019 Novice Listener - 1 Year Oregon, United States

    After doing lots of research to figure out which turntable setup someone should buy who is new to the hobby but wants a great experience, I found Fluance. The quality is obvious as soon as you open the box. The RT81 and Ai40 speakers are very well constructed and feel like they are worth more than you pay. Setup was extremely easy, I watched a short video on YouTube that Fluance made about setup and in no time I was listening to my first record. Great quality sound and it looks amazing too. I couldn’t be happier.

    Johnathon b January 31, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 3 Years Minnesota, United States

    Great turntable and speaker bundle. Fast shipping. Great company

    Frederic L January 22, 2019 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Quebec, Canada

    The products are incredible. The turntable is strongly build, the set-up is really easy to follow. And it plays really beautifully. I also added the bookshelf speakers to my set-up and they are really impressive too. The sound is amazing. For the price, I was not expecting something as good as that. So the whole set-up with the turntable is the perfect match. The speakers are also Bluetooth and they play really well too on this setting. Really I have nothing negative to say about those products. For the price the quality is amazing. The shipping was also really fast. Thanks for the great products.

    Dustin January 12, 2019 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Ontario, Canada

    I just purchased this turntable and amplified speaker combo and couldnt be happier. The sound is amazing and the bluetooth on the speakers is easy to connect to several devices. Its been great to see why everyone is so hyped on vinyl, the sound is far superior!

    John H January 11, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 4 Years Connecticut, United States

    I spent a fair amount of time looking into entry level high end turntable, pre-amp, and powered bookshelf systems. For the price point, I couldn’t be happier with the system. Solid construction of the speaker boxes/turntable, and provides detailed quality sound to fill a small room. The removable head shell for cartridge upgrades is a great plus as well. Would definitely recommended to a friend.

    Frank December 28, 2018 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Virginia, United States

    Santa brought me this whole package for Christmas! I guess I was very good. SOOOO Happy!
    Perfect setup out of the box. FANTASTIC sound with built in preamp. Cannot wait to upgrade and see what this baby can do! : )
