    Sam T June 26, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 5 Years Ontario, Canada

    Lovely sound, solidly built and looks great. Highly recommend!

    Jeff S June 20, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Ohio, United States

    Looking for a new analog turntable, and found the RT-82...great turntable- easy set up, and sounds great. Replaced my decades old Technics with this- moderately priced, and looks very nice. Received shipment with minor damage to the dust cover- contacted the company, and was sent a replacement right away. Very satisfied with product and service.

    Ian S June 19, 2020 Advanced Listener - 15 Years Arkansas, United States

    I love it! The sound is incredible and I love the style. I wish I would have went for the rt85 but I'll upgrade the platter and stylus eventually. I did hours of research before finally deciding on going with Fluance. The reviews are all correct, this is an amazing turntable!

    Gene H June 19, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years North Carolina, United States

    I'm getting back into vinyl after 15 years away, having grown up with LPs and using good turntables. I'm building a new system and was delighted to find the RT82. It's definitely the best deal at this price range. Being able to control tonearm weight and anti-skating is rare at this price point, not to mention that it comes with an excellent Ortofon cartridge. A bonus is that the wood version is truly beautiful. I'm very pleased.

    Sean J June 18, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 15 Years Washington, United States

    This is a gorgeous, fantastic-sounding turntable! The RT82 a huge upgrade from the one I was using previously, but no surprise there. It has inspired me to quickly expand my modest record collection, as I can now truly experience my favorite albums. Setup was simple, although I was nervous when the platter did not spin at first. Resetting the belt fixed this issue and it has been working perfectly ever since. I now look forward to upgrading the platter and cartridge in the future. Thanks Fluance!

    amazing sound quality, I love everything about it. Beautifully made

    Gene M. June 16, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 5 Years Indiana, United States

    Product shipped and arrived much swifter than I expected. Visually, the turn table is impeccable. I love the piano black finish. The instructions were easy to follow and I had it up and running quickly. Also I was impressed that the pre-installed cartridge was perfectly aligned. Overall the sound quality is awesome and I am completely satisfied with the product and if I had to make the choice again, I wouldnt hesitate to purchase a Fluance product!

    Michael M. June 15, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 6 Years Texas, United States

    Very happy with my RT82, huge upgrade over my old Sony Turntable, much more accurate when i tested it with the RPM app. The autostop seems to work well and it pairs well with my Rolls VP29 with almost no background noise. Good overall table with lots of upgrade options down the line.

    Trevor D June 13, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Maryland, United States

    Had been using an old Garrard GT15 with age related performance issues but I love it like an old friend. Researched new turntables for quite some time. Finally went ahead and got the RT82, should have done it sooner. It has renewed my enthusiasm for my vinyl collection. It looks beautiful (including white gloves to aid in setup was a nice touch) and sounds great. I have it hooked up to my old Harmon Larson 330c receiver. Very warm sound. Like the music is hugging me. In my opinion this quality could easily cost a couple hundred dollars more. Also it was packaged very well, very secure during shipping. Now for new speakers...

    Paul B June 11, 2020 Audiophile - 20+ Years Florida, United States

    Fit and finish was perfect- Piano Black leaves no room for flaws.
    Packaging was well done to protect the turn-table.
    Instructions where complete and easy to follow.
    And the most important part, it sounds amazing, at this price point there is no disappointment.

    Jack G June 10, 2020 Novice Listener - 1 Year Texas, United States

    We loved the look of the record player. Sounds great as well.

    JT P June 10, 2020 Novice Listener - 1 Year Pennsylvania, United States

    Originally bought an AT LP3. After about a week that turntable was having speed issues so I returned it and bought the RT 82. The RT 82 has blown me away with its quality build and sound, my only regret is that I didn’t purchase it sooner!

    Matt M June 9, 2020 Novice Listener North Carolina, United States

    Great turntable at a great price. Setup was very easy even for a novice. Looks and sounds fantastic. Very happy with this purchase.

    Aubrey F June 7, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 1 Year New York, United States

    Very premium feel to the product. High quality look for our apartment downtown! Excited to purchase speakers to try the audio!

    Matthew H June 5, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years West Virginia, United States

    I did a lot of reading and comparison shopping for a new turntable, and the Fluance Reference line won by a longshot. The best features in its price range, I decided on the RT-82 with walnut finish and ordered the acrylic platter as well (so I essentially ended up with the RT-85 but with the Ortofon cartridge).
    First impression, this turntable has style. Solid build, every piece of it feels substantial and high quality.
    I am very happy with this turntable. The sound quality is miles beyond my old entry level player, and it has already proven to be worth every penny of its price.
    After reviewing at least 6 other players in the under-$500 category, Fluance has the best features and best upgrade potential of any other player in its class.
    I'm going to say that if this turntable was built in USA, but exactly the same quality, it would probably retail at $800. It is that nice.
    If you are considering a Fluance, and are comparing to the "other 3" that always come up in discussion of the sub-$500 category, just do yourself a favor and get the Fluance. It has been nothing short of a pleasure to have.
