    This turntable performs just as good as it looks. I saw the review on Vinyl TV and wanted one, so I switched over from the Audio-Technica AT-LP120 because the built in amp was not that good, this with the new PA10 Preamp is amazing, I also switched to the ortofon blue and what a difference. Waiting for the black to come in and hear this with the preamp and put is through it paces, should preform admirably. I am very happy with my purchase! HIGHLY recommend.

    Kurt G May 8, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 10 Years Pennsylvania, United States

    Upgraded from a 30 year old Sony turntable with a worn out belt and a sub-par cartridge. The RT82 has really brought my records to life and I'm happy about having a properly aligned cartridge and tone arm to help protect my vinyl investment. At this price point, you cannot go wrong with this turntable.

    Sam F April 24, 2019 Advanced Listener - 1 Year Virginia, United States

    Before getting my RT82 I had a low end turntable. My low end turntable was having tons of issues with skipping and wow & flutter after only a week. I chose the RT82 as my upgrade & have nearly zero issues with it. The functionality of it is great & it is a beautiful piece of hardware. Thank you fluance for keeping happy and letting me play my records with zero issues!!

    Mike W March 26, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 5 Years New Jersey, United States

    Very solid and sturdy construction, fantastic value and overall best turntable in the price range. Only wish acrylic platter could come as a separate.

    Kevin A March 19, 2019 Novice Listener - 1 Year Florida, United States

    Bought the RT82.. first turntable and have no buyers remorse. It's a fantastic product, shipped very well and fast, has been working flawlessly.

    Jer R February 28, 2019 Novice Listener - 1 Year New Jersey, United States

    Wanted my first table to be able to switch out cartridges and adjust counterweights that are usually not seen with entry level models. It does that, looks sleek, and is a decent price for the value you get out of it. My package came with a damaged dust cover that happened probably through its transportation. I contacted customer support and got a free replacement in a few days. Great experience even with the minor hiccup.

    Vance H. February 26, 2019 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years California, United States

    Extremely well made piece of equipment. Beautiful sound and aesthetics!

    Chris S February 20, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 2 Years Virginia, United States

    Was a little more than I wanted to spend on my first turntable, but I read all the positive reviews and felt comfortable with the purchase. Wow, was I impressed with the overall quality and sound for the price. All the positive reviews were spot on!

    Andy R February 20, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 1 Year Minnesota, United States

    Love our new RT82. It was super easy to set up with clear instructions. It looks and sounds amazing.

    Jamie B February 8, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 1 Year Texas, United States

    So far I am very happy with my RT82. Platter doesn't spin completely perfect but it doesn't seem to affect playback. I have about 10+ hours of listening on it, but so far so good.

    Michael Gh February 7, 2019 Advanced Listener - 10 Years Illinois, United States

    I am really happy with this turntable, there are few things that it would make this turntable an amazing one, the rca cable and the ground cable are on the short side, you might want to buy a different one if you decide to place your turntable not next to your receiver.

    Jerry G February 5, 2019 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Colorado, United States

    Outstanding value for the money. Solidly built. The on-off/speed selection knob operates silky smoothly. Especially like that the turntable has an auto shutoff feature (which can be enabled or disabled). That is a feature that is not commonly available on better quality turntables. Also appreciate that the same base and motor are used on the RT82 through RT85. The cartridge quality and platter material are the only differences.

    I had retrieved my LP collection from storage, and was listening on my old turntable. Even though it was a quality turntable, its age was showing. (I could detect wow & flutter.) This new turntable provides the means to truly enjoy that old vinyl again.

    Jesse S January 26, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 6 Years Ontario, Canada

    Was going to buy the RT80 until I saw this was released. Do not regret spending the extra money for this turntable. Excellent build quality, sound and design!

    Benoit, D. January 25, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years Quebec, Canada

    Extremely happy with the unit very impressed with the company overhaul I will purchase again

    Jesse S January 25, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 6 Years Ontario, Canada

    Had this record player or about 2 weeks now and have gotten about 20 hours of play time out of it. So far I am 100% satisfied. Very well built and very good sound
