    As someone a bit new to vinyl, I had listened to my records on a new -but cheap- turntable, or on a good -but old (and worn)- turntable. To be able to finally do this on a new-good turntable is quite the pleasure. Sounds amazing!
    (And looks amazing too).

    After researching for quite some time, I settled on choosing the RT-82 as my first turntable. Super happy with my purchase! Fluance did a great job packaging the turntable for shipping. Set up was very straightforward. Listening to albums on this brings such a better experience over listening to music digitally. No regrets!

    I can't speak highly enough of the RT82. I was skeptical about the benefits of upgrading from my older AT-LP60, but the difference in audio quality is night and day. Set-up was a breeze, with the entire process taking about fifteen minutes from opening the box to playing my first record. I can't recommend this highly enough!

    Easy to set up, great cables, turntable feet, level, lid, etc. Looks beautiful, sounds great. Couldn't be happier and I am super appreciative that the R82 has the same foundation as the R83-R85 and that the loss of the phono amp brings the price of the R82 down to reach. Very considerate in-between model.

    Wow! I started with purchasing two RT81s for my Daughters. I liked the look and description. When they arrived I was amazed at the build quality and sound. In the market for a new TT I opted for the RT82 for it "upgradability" It is amazing. The plinth is solid and the components are high end. It sounds amazing. The attention to detail is something found on turntables costing hundreds more.

    I am very new to the audiophile experience but I will say I am extremely happy with my purchase. Fluance was suggested to my by my brother who said that this Canadian company has continually beat competition with their product. Their turntables are easy to upgrade, they look beautiful and sound amazing. My turntable was packaged perfectly and came in pristine shape. The system was easy to install and if you get stuck along the way the website has a link to their YouTube video to help you out. I’ll recommend this brand for years to come.

    Beautiful turntable. Have received compliments on its appearance. Easy to step up and sounds great. I look forward to the upgrade path and diving deeper down the rabbit hole of the vinyl listening experience. Highly recommend.

    Great value, but wish they had a cartridgeless option though. Installed my own and am quite happy with the outcome

    The turntable performs well. I really like having the option for upgrading stylus in the future as well. The warm walnut style complements my decor too.

    Bought as a Christmas gift for my fiancé. It shipped right on time, safe packaging. Once he opened I was so excited that it looks even better than in the photos. Very easy set up, now we are looking to update our speakers to test it out!

    Gerry A December 27, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 1 Year Connecticut, United States

    Bought as a christmas gift for my wife ... shipping was fast and thanks to great directions I was able to set it up and test it so she could use it immediately on Christmas morning. Went with the 82 as it was completely upgradable if we choose to update our other equipment like speakers and amp. The cartridge sounds amazing on our current system and I am very impressed with the overall quality of the entire piece. Auto stop is a great function for those not used to needing to stop the table after a record side plays - if you're used to CDs etc, then you'll actually be surprised at how quickly the end of a record side comes! But it works great as well.
    Overall it sounds fantastic, its easy to use, and a gorgeous piece of equipment! We haven't listened to vinyl in almost 30 years .. so great to be able to revisit all our favorites and start adding to the collection.
