    Easy Setup, Wonderful Sound. I purchased this as a second record player for my home. I already one a Rega TT and was really just trying to find a table that matched some furniture upstairs. Happy to report that not only does this table look good, its sound is even better.

    Michael E August 1, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years New Jersey, United States

    Silly me. I thought my old turntable with a Grado Red cartridge was the bomb. Bought the RT82, set it up fairly easily, threw on an LP.....mind blown. Instantly realized what I wasn't hearing with the former set up. A super-solid performer at a reasonable price. No complaints here.

    Conor R. July 30, 2020 Novice Listener - 1 Year Minnesota, United States

    The table sounds great and I love the look. Set-up was easy.

    Cole E July 29, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 12 Years Ontario, Canada

    This machine was quite the surprise. First of all, the packing material and quality of table itself it's fantastic. Very easy to set-up, even for one like myself who's only ever owned cheap tables from radio shack. Quality of the sound and overall function of the table superceded all expectations. Truly one of the best purchases I've made in a long while, I feel as though this will be the only table I need in the future.

    Jake C July 28, 2020 Advanced Listener - 10 Years North Carolina, United States

    I could not be happier with this turntable! Sadly, my old turntable broke in the middle of a move, and after countless hours of online research and some conversations at the record store, I landed on the RT82. Sound-wise I have experienced quite the upgrade over my old turntable (Kenwood KD-42RB), and aesthetically the RT-82 blows my old turntable out of the water. I would recommend this turntable to anyone looking to make an upgrade to their sound system!

    Dan L July 28, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years California, United States

    I did a lot of research to decide on a replacement for my 40 year old Garrard Zero 100 turntable, and ended up selecting the RT82. It turned out to be a completely different listening experience! While playing one of my classic Dave Brubeck albums I noticed a sound I never heard before. After thinking it was a speaker problem, I finally figured out that it was the breathing sound Paul Desmond made while playing the sax. Amazing depth and realism

    Angel July 25, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years Florida, United States

    The look and details are superb. The smoked cover looks better than the competition. The cueing lever works smoothly. The legs are really nice. Overall it is a nice turntable. But unfortunately my sample had a out of center platter which caused out of spec W/F. Customer service was quick and arranged a return. I am planning on getting the model with the acrylic platter next.

    Richard July 22, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 2 Years New Jersey, United States

    I love this turntable. Bought a bundle with the Ai60s. Could not be happier! They sound crisp and clean. Loving the sound.

    James C. Wells July 21, 2020 Tennessee, United States

    Superior product at a very reasonable Price! Great looks, easy set up Great operation and playback.

    Abbie July 21, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years Georgia, United States

    Great record player! I'm so pleased with the sound (I bought the Fluance bookshelf speakers to go with it) and the overall quality. Worth every penny.

    Richard U July 21, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 2 Years New Jersey, United States

    This bundle was perfect. First time record player owner, and let me tell you, this set up sounds great. Everything sounds crisp and clean. Can’t wait to show this off.

    Ziggy G July 21, 2020 Novice Listener - 1 Year Arizona, United States

    I bought this as an entry level replacement for my 30 year old turntable. It sounds amazing! Main reason I chose Fluance is the auto stop. I’m always busy and can’t get back to stop a record when it ends.

    conrad b July 20, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 18 Years Colorado, United States

    lots of pops and crackles, even on brand new records

    Ethan W July 16, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 6 Years South Carolina, United States

    Really awesome upgrade from an audio technica LP60. Had never balance a tonearm before but Fluance's resources on setup made the whole process easy. Sounds great and looks even better. Looking forward to using this turntable for years to come.

    Kenny P July 15, 2020 Audiophile - 20+ Years South Carolina, United States

    Gorgeous and great sounding turntable. I am very impressed with the craftsmanship of the turntable and the high quality of sound.
