    Alex I October 10, 2020 Advanced Listener - 10 Years Quebec, Canada

    Very easy to setup and build quality is top notch. I've owned many turntables, both modern and vintage, the rt82 has surpassed them both in quality and fidelity.

    Jason H October 9, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years British Columbia, Canada

    Couldn't be happier so far. Easy to set up. Gorgeous to look at. And sounds amazing. This turntable has renewed my love for vinyl and I am hearing my collection with new ears. Money well spent.

    David R. October 7, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Nevada, United States

    Such a great value for the price. Very happy with the sound and build

    I'm 73 yrs old and have been listening to the same turntable for 45 yrs... and I still like it. I chanced upon a You Tube review for the Fluance "RT" tables and liked their appearance. Now I know the looks of the table doesn't make it the best buy... but it sure got my interest so I started watching and reading the reviews for the RT line. Change is good, at any age (and the wife said I could) so I decided to oeder the RT82. Wisdom comes to those of us that wait and this was a wise move. Placing the order was easy, delivery was quick and set up was a snap. Cued up one of my favorite digital master albums (actually about 3 different albums) for my maiden voyage and I'm here to tell ya.... this is not only a GOOD LOOKING turntable, it's great sounding turntable... love it. Now what'l I do with my old one??? YES... I recommend this product!!

    David R. September 30, 2020 Advanced Listener Illinois, United States

    I'm 73 yrs old.. My RT82 is replacing a turntable I've enjoyed since I bought it in the early 70's and it still works great, BUT... That wood plyinth caught my eye... THEN I read and listened to the reviews and decided it was time for a change, and an ear pleasing change it was. I Love the RT82 's smooth quiet sound and I may add the acrylic platter at a later date. However, I must admit, the sound flowing from my RT82 is definitely "music to my ears". The Fluance product line provides a quality level beyond their cost. Recommended!!!

    After a decade or so away from vinyl I was gifted an old Techniques turntable, but it was very basic. I started buying used vinyl to fill in many gaps in my collection and to replace long-lost LPs. Soon the limitations of the Techniques led me to buy another turntable, and after extensive research I bought this and have been delighted. It's manual, you can adjust the weight and anti-skating, and the walnut veneer is beautiful. And the sound with the Ortofon is excellent. This really reminds me of my old Acoustic Research manual turntable from the mid-1970s - a simple belt-driven turntable that sounds excellent and has all the controls necessary to protect your vinyl. I love it.

    Gary B September 29, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Maryland, United States

    Easy set up, quality sound and sweet memories as we cruise through our 50+ years vinyl collection.

    Jim R September 28, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years Nebraska, United States

    Performs really well, especially for the price

    Karl M September 26, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Michigan, United States

    Easy set up, exelent sound and looks awesome.
    After a couple weeks of researching turntables in the $300-$400 range such as the project, Uturn AT and brands like sony and denon. The Fluance RT82 won. It was a no brainer. You wont find the features or build quality in any other $300 table.

    russell September 23, 2020

    After a long process of looking at different turntables at this price I decided to purchase the fluance rt82 and wow it hasn't disappointed. It is a stunning turntable in walnut finish. Out of the box it does require a little assembly but the instructions are easy to follow and easy to set up, the tone arm was a bit fiddly but then it's the first time I've had to do this. It also has an auto stop function which many dont and comes with a bubble level to make sure the turntable is level. Once all was set up and connected the sound is incredible, I've had record players throughout my younger years and don't remember them sounding this clear. All in all an awesome turntable that I'm very very pleased with.

    Jonah W September 23, 2020

    The turntable was packaged very securely and it shows that the company really cares that their products reach you undamaged in order to produce the best results. The setup was really easy, but I suggest watching their video on how to balance the tonearm because the instructions alone aren't crystal clear. It looks aesthetically pleasing, takes up minimal space, and it plays so beautifully. Even with my perfect pitch (which made listening on other players annoying), I can only detect very minimal wow and flutter. With my setup (Schiit Mani pre-amp, Sony SS-C55 speakers, Sherwood receiver), my records sound like live performances. I wouldn't get any other player unless it's from Fluance.
