    The table sounds great, looks beautiful, and was everything I expected. Best deal for the money in this price point. Thanks!

    John S May 22, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years California, United States

    I purchased the RT82 as my first turntable... sounds great through my 25 year old Denon receiver... love the fact that the RT82 allows me to upgrade its parts the deeper I get into vinyl......

    Jason Paterson May 21, 2020 Advanced Listener - 17 Years Alberta, Canada

    All my research paid off. This unit does my vinyl justice. Easy to set up and the audio is great.

    Bradley B. May 21, 2020 Advanced Listener Pennsylvania, United States

    I honestly don’t think you can find a better turntable for anything close to this price. The RT-82’s servo controlled motor, the heavy weight plinth, adjustable soft rubber spike feet, and an Ortofon OM-10 cartridge give you a real audiophile quality experience at a mass market price. Not to mention the walnut veneer and thick gloss coat is absolutely gorgeous. They give you white gloves in the box to handle it! Seriously I couldn’t be happier.

    Scott, W May 19, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 2 Years Virginia, United States

    I love this turntable. I was previously using an AT LP60, but after learning more about vinyl, decided that it was time to upgrade to a better table with more upgrade options and better quality. I spent about 24 hours total researching different turntable options in the $200-$300 range and eventually decided on the RT82 because of its high built quality, beautiful walnut plinth, and rubber mat, adjustable and easily up gradable components. I really like how easy it is down the line for me to upgrade the various parts to keep my listening experience fresh. The order process was very easy and it shipped incredibly fast. The packaging was very good and the setup was very easy and easy to follow thanks to fluance's instructions and videos. With my new setup, I'm hearing details on my records that I never heard before. The table looks great in my apartment and very sleek! The table and all of its parts are very sturdy and appear to be of high quality. I would recommend checking and aligning the cartridge when setting up the table though, mine was slightly off out of the box to be noticeable on the inner grooves, but completely understandable given the shipping and packaging process. Overall, I am very pleased with this table and would highly recommend it!

    I had been planning on upgrading my previous turntable for several months. I had been looking for something in the $100-$300 range and came across a CNET review of the best turntables under $300. The RT82 was their top pick. I continued researching and everything pointed to a Fluance turntable. I went with the RT82 and don't regret it one bit. It's a beautiful sounding - and looking - set-up. Definitely loving it so far and will look at Fluance products again if I decide to upgrade in the future.

    Liam S May 19, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 3 Years Georgia, United States

    Great turntable, quick and secure shipping. The RT-82 is a good choice to get everything important without overspending.

    Ty H May 17, 2020 Novice Listener - 1 Year Montana, United States

    I upgraded to this from an entry level turn table and the difference is night and day! Crystal clear and sounds fantastic!

    Ramzy D May 16, 2020 Intermediate Listener Illinois, United States

    I am so happy with my turntable. It’s my first high quality turntable, and the difference is amazing! One of the best purchases I ever made. I was a little perturbed at first at having to spend a bunch of money on some other equipment to deal with bad wiring, but in the end, it was all worth it. Records sound clean, clear and lively like I’ve never heard them before!

    Dave P May 13, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Maryland, United States

    The turntable is beautiful. I bought the RT-82 and the build quality is great. The Customer Service I received from Charles was outstanding! Even though the Ortofon OM-10 that came pre aligned with the turntable sounds amazing, I like the fact that I'm able to easily switch cartridges, highly recommended if you're looking for an entry level turntable that doesn't look or perform like an entry level turntable...I love it!

    Bob S May 11, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years Texas, United States

    Best turntable that I have owned and easy to upgrade. Best wow and flutter of similar units.

    Ryan C. May 8, 2020 Intermediate Listener North Carolina, United States

    Very pleased with my purchase. The RT82 offers the critical components for top-notch sound quality out-of-the-gate without breaking the bank. Plus, easy cartridge and platter upgrades are available down the line. Sound quality and fit and finish are impeccable. Paired with new Klipsch R-41M bookshelves and I feel like I'm listening to my record collection for the first time! It's not advertised heavily in the specs but the servo controlled motor was a selling point for me over the RT80 and 81. This thing is incredibly speed stable, I haven't heard a single variation. The cue arm is also a great tool for preserving the Ortofon 10M cartridge which sounds amazing to my ears. Happy listening!

    Bill L May 8, 2020 Audiophile - 20+ Years Colorado, United States

    Great turntable!
    The setup was correct out of the box. I did not have to adjust the cartridge overhang at all.
    The Ortophon OM-10 needs about 20 hours of sound it's best, so you need to give it time, play some records.

    Russell P. May 8, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 1 Year Hawaii, United States

    Upon hours and hours of research, I concluded that the RT82 is the best value turntable for $300. It has everything I was looking for in an entry level TT. Great cartridge, great build quality, and great sound. You won't be disappointed!

    Shamus R May 7, 2020 Audiophile - 20+ Years Washington, United States

    I had been looking to upgrade my turntable for several months and did a lot of research on and reading about what's out there. Everything kept leading me back to the Fluance Reference series turntables. I purchased the RT82 and haven't been disappointed. It certainly exceeded my expectations. If I look to upgrade again in the future, I'll definitely be looking at Fluance products again.
