    Product is great if it works, mine did not. If you are unlucky enough to get a defective cartridge or stylus, your damned. Customer support is IMPOSSIBLE to get in touch with. emails no reply for a week +. Call the phone number, sit on hold for 45minues, nobody ever picked up. Send subsequent email, no reply. (eventual reply says they are overwhelmed). They tell me to send back my stylus, but will only send out a replacement when they receive the original back. They send a shipping label, but it takes 2 days for it to be emailed out. So i sit here without a stylus. Eventually i just paid for a new one myself, as they are such a pain to deal with. Good Luck to you. Plenty of other options out there if you

    Excellent turntable. For the price I would have expected an automatic start/placement. Easy to set-up and install. I like that the turntable is modular so I can upgrade to a higher quality stylus if needed. The only issue I have is with stylus bouncing due to our bouncy floors, you can't walk too close to the turntable when playing without the head jumping.

    Ted R January 25, 2022 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years Michigan, United States

    I love this turntable. It arrived packaged perfectly. Set up was easy and explained very well in the instructions.
    My vinyl collection is happy and so am I.

    Anibal A January 22, 2022 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years Puerto Rico, United States

    Awesome products and nice finishing details.

    julie b January 20, 2022 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Arizona, United States

    I love this turntable...it's pretty...got great sound...and so easy to set up and play

    Luc B January 19, 2022 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years Ontario, Canada

    After two weeks of spinning records I love the RT82 and its rekindled my love of vinyls. Well packaged and was easy and fun to set-up. I ceramic coated the plinth to keep it very shiny for years to come and resist scratches. Nice craftmanship for the assembly and components, and heavy duty weight. The adjustable legs are a must have. Outputting to the Project Series USB Phone Plus pre-amp to later record my collection.
    Listening with the Fluance Ai60 and everything sounds great with good channel separation, clarity and bass production. Mixture of Jazz, Rock and Metal in my collection, with mostly all original disks I purchased and abused in the 80's on. Performed a well known torture test with Metallica's Black Album 180 gram that's a notorious skipper on lesser turntables, and passed without a pop or a skip. Well done Fluance and demonstrates that their settings for the head weight and anti-skip are bang-on for this OM10 cartridge!

    Later with wear, will upgrade to the 2M blue and acrylic platter, but honestly not sure how this could get better sounding, preferences aside. Great product and all you need to properly enjoy your records!

    lorin j January 15, 2022 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Wisconsin, United States

    I love this turntable. I had a-t lpw50pb that picked up every little vibration. I already had a ortofon 2m blue cartridge. I will up grade to the acrylic platter. Did i say i love this rt82 turntable!

    Kevin L. January 6, 2022 Intermediate Listener - 10 Years Ontario, Canada

    This turntable is absolutely fantastic. The sound quality is wonderful and the build of the turntable is great as well. Love the fact that the table can be further upgraded later on if I choose to. Best bang for your buck in this price range without question. I did tons of research and am happy to have chosen the RT82.

    Glenn G January 5, 2022 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Michigan, United States

    Excellent sounding turntable!. I wish there was a light to see tracks at night.. I like the OM10 soon will upgrade to the 2m red.

    Mark H. January 4, 2022 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years Wisconsin, United States

    I returned to listening to vinyl. My old turntable failed. Did a lot of online searching and found Fluance. I settled on the RT82 and I’m so pleased I did. Love how good it looks and how well it sounds. Set up was easy. Ok I must have watched way too many videos on how to set it up but there were no surprises. Everything was there and it all went as expected. I also did a fair amount of comparing on cartridges and I love the sound of the cartridge that came on this turntable.

    Christopher December 31, 2021 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years South Carolina, United States

    Great value and quality, especially for the money. This is my second Fluance turntable, having previously owned the RT81. My only complaint would be that they do not offer the option (with any turntable) to purchase something without the cartridge, as I already own much better carts than anything they offer. Otherwise I highly recommend.

    Chris G December 26, 2021 Intermediate Listener - 2 Years Ontario, Canada

    Upgrade from a vintage table. Immediately the quality is evident and I love the upgrade path thag Fluance offers. No other manufacturer can compete with the value in Fluance.

    Jeff B December 16, 2021 Intermediate Listener - 1 Year Massachusetts, United States

    Easy to assemble and calibrate and excellent sound!

    Kelly G December 15, 2021 Audiophile - 15 Years Illinois, United States

    We may have to return the system as the tonearm does not adjust properly. I have tried contacting customer service but all they tell me via email is the same information that's in the manual. The tonearm doesn't lower so at this point the record player doesn't work.

    Mark L December 15, 2021 Novice Listener - 1 Year New York, United States

    I wanted my first turntable as something that wasn't too large of an investment, in caseI decided I didn't like it, but at the same time, one that was upgradeable so I could expand years down the road. I picked up the RT82 as the best of both worlds. First time setting it up, I had no idea what I was doing, but Fluance videos were a great help and made it very easy. Within minutes, I was listening to my first vinyl record and enjoyed the experience. Now I'm looking to build up my catalog.
