    I wanted to love the RT 82, but I have since returned the unit. The good—quality build, easy setup, nice visual presentation. The bad—-the Ortofon OM 10 is just not a very good cartridge and Fluance needs to up their game on this choice. The deal breaker was the auto stop feature. Sometimes it worked and other times not. When it did work, I felt like it took too long to function. The manual states that it may take 30 seconds or longer to activate and that’s too long IMO. I probably would have been much happier with a semi-automatic which Fluance did not offer.

    OUTSTANDING deck. Stunning finish, "weight" , build. Does everything I want it to, no more, no less. And does it elegantly. Sound is fantastic out-of-box, and getting progressively better throughout break-in period. Can't believe they pack so much performance / style into this price point. LOVE. Looking forward to exploring more of the Fluance product line.

    Amazing product! After doing some extensive research, I decided the RT82 is the perfect first turntable for me. Not only is this turntable a beauty, but the quality is amazing. I've been enjoying each record I play on this. I've had one tiny defect but Julie from customer service helped me out with my issue. Customer service is one of the best I've ever seen. Glad I chose Fluance and I know I'll be sticking around for a long time because of their A+ customer service. Thank you Fluance for the quality product and thank you Julie for all the help!

    Nice Turntable, easy set-up. Best thing to come out of Canada since Wayne Gretzky!

    Jason liskai July 30, 2021 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Ohio, United States

    Great sound. Easy to set up . Looks amazing

    Allan M July 30, 2021 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Nova Scotia, Canada

    Easy to setup as i,ve owned a few turntables in the past, looks and sounds great and i like that i can upgrade the cartridge and platter in the future if i decide to do so

    mark k July 27, 2021 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years New Jersey, United States

    Easy set up once you get the arm balanced. It looks and sounds great!

    James f. July 21, 2021 Audiophile - 20+ Years California, United States

    It's been decades since I last spun a vinyl. The rt82 IS the perfect table to rekindle an old passion. Beautiful table & super simple to put together. Will I need to upgrade from this model??? Perhaps, but not for a looooooooong time. Thank you guys for a fantastic piece of audio porn

    Sarah S July 8, 2021 Novice Listener - 1 Year California, United States

    I got this as my first serious turntable and am super happy with it so far! The setup took some time but was fairly painless as the manual did a great job of explaining what to do. I think it sounds fantastic (although I don't have another point of reference)! I'm very happy and would recommend!

    R. A June 24, 2021

    Haven't had it for long but, so far so good....Easy to setup and calibrate!

    kaylin June 19, 2021

    Love the sound quality. I finally decided to throw money at a nicer sound system for my records after using audio technica for years. The set up was a little hard to understand but I eventually got the hang of it. Looks amazing in my space and the sound is immaculate!

    Amazon Customer June 17, 2021

    I was looking for a reasonably priced turntable with good sound quality. I wanted no preamp and the RT-82 was a great fit. This table is also upgradeable to a RT-83 to a RT-85. The sound quality is very good with the Ortofon OM-10, a good to go and dependable cartridge. One of the deciding factors for me was this is a Canadian based company. Thanks Fluance for a great product at a reachable price.

    Michael M June 15, 2021

    This does a lot of things great. Great instructions, comprehensive packaging, sounds great in the best case scenario. However, they went cheap on the stylus. Once u get to the last one or two songs on the record, it struggles mightily on tracking - including new records. The stylus is cleaned regularly and routinely underperforms on the last couple songs resulting in heavy distortion. This would be a 5 star product if they instead included the OM20.You’re better off getting a $100 turntable with a $200 stylus.

    Bradley R. June 10, 2021 Advanced Listener - 5 Years Alberta, Canada

    Really good looking, great performing turntable. That said, I don't have a large, high-quality receiver, nor do I have a surround sound setup. I'm operating, at the moment, on two mid-tier bookshelf speakers. The turntable looks excellent, the setup was relatively straightforward, and the playback is superb. Very, very little flutter or wow experienced so far.

    I could not be happier for the price paid. This is a very high-quality belt-drive turntable that really delivers on aesthetics and performance. After having used various other belt-drives and direct-drives, I'm happy to have this as my end-game.
