    Wonderful turntable! Huge improvement from my previous turntable which was the audio technica lp60. I can simultaneously enjoy music while knowing my records won't be destroyed, wonderful combo! Also pictures don't do the table justice, it looks absolutely gorgeous in person.

    A bit of drama that ended very well. When I first received the turntable, it was defective. I contacted the company and got the best possible customer service. Within 24 hours I had authorization to ship it back at no cost to me, and within a fortnight I received a new turntable. This time it was flawless. I like the operation of this turntable. It has all the features that are desirable with nothing that is superfluous to performance. The design is superb, and thoughtful. I appreciate the auto-stop function, detachable and therefore replaceable interconnects, the detachable head-shell to facilitate cartridge swaps, the adjustable and well designed feet, the excellent Ortofon cartridge, and thoughtful little touches like the bubble level. I did replace the #10 stylus with the nude mounted diamond #20 stylus. It sounds great and functions perfectly. Fluance impressed me not only with the turntable but the superb customer service. Nice to see how well they back their products. I don't know of any other turntable that gives as much for so reasonable a price.

    After a lot of research and deliberation I decided on purchasing the RT82 as my first turntable. It seemed like a good sweet spot of quality and affordability, with room to grow with upgrades to the table.

    Granted this is my first table and so I have a very limited frame of reference, but I am absolutely loving it so far. Set-up was simple even for a newbie like me, and everything sounds great and functions smoothly.

    All in all I'm very happy with the table, and I plan to keep it for years.

    Smooth and quiet. Belt drive ensures no motor noise. Exact speed checked with strobe. Beautiful sound! Sweet highs and full lows. Best tt for the money.

    My first turntable, although I am old enough to have owned them when they were still around in the 80s. But I went with CDs. After upgrading my speakers and replayed those 80s CDs I was disappointed. So I decided to get a turntable to try the analog sound, and boy was I impressed!!!
    The RT82 is fantastic. The sound is detailed and stereo imaging is incredible. I've been buying used LPs from Goodwill like crazy and with very few exception, I have been very pleased.
    The other great thing about the RT82 is that it is upgradeable. This to me is a lot of fun, trying new cartridges, an acrylic plate, a different pre-amp, etc. You will not get bored.
    Overall, I fully recommend the RT82. A great buy at a competitive price.

    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.

    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.

    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!!

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

    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.
