    This turn table sounds amazing and is super accurate speed wise. It’s heavy, very solidly built which I didn’t expect. Please keep in mind, it doesn’t have a preamp so you’ll need a phono amp... make sure your receiver has a phono input or a separate preamp. You won’t find a better table for the money, customer for life. Now I need to try their speakers.

    I love my new RT82 turntable. I bought the RT82 to replace a 42 year old, failing, fully manual "audiophile" turntable I've owned since it was new. That table cost me five times (adjusted for inflation) what the RT82 cost me, and the RT82 sounds just as good AND has features that old table doesn't such as auto stop, and a bubble level. Those of us who like to tinker with their gear will be pleased that Fluance wisely chose to equip the table with a "universal", detachable head-shell, and RCA cables which allow for easy swapping of phono cartridges and cables.

    RT82 Pros; beautiful walnut finish, tinted dust cover, dead quiet motor, good speed precision, easily replaced head-shell/phono cartridge, auto shut off, detachable RCA cables, and good heft.

    Cons; none at this price point.

    Way to go Fluance!

    Despite the short time I've listened to vinyl records, I've listened to music for a while. The RT82 allows me a new way to experience music, and it performs way beyond my expectations. I upgraded to this from a much cheaper turntable, and as soon as set it up, I knew it was excellent. I decided to put it to the test. My copy of Moving Pictures sounded flawless on this turntable. The quiet passages were dead quiet. Next I played Barry Manilow Live, an album that suffered from inner groove distortion, that virtually disappeared. The included Ortofon cartridge brought life into some records I didn't know had any. This absolutely lives up to the hype and I plan to keep this for years.

    I looks far and wide for an great entry into records. The fact that it is so easy to set u and comes with features that other similar products charge extra for is awesome. What really sold me is the fact this this has the potential to be the the only turntable I ever own. An amazing product that can be upgraded easily, down the line, with the purchase of an acrylic platter, different stylus and mat.

    Brian A February 13, 2019 Novice Listener - 5 Years Washington, United States

    Easy to set up, use, and care for. Fluance's customer service has been a pleasure to deal with while making my first step into the HiFi realm. The auto-stop feature isn't very finely tuned. It takes ~ 30 seconds of spinning once the needle hits the run out groove.

    Mark H February 12, 2019 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Texas, United States

    Arrived well insulated and packed. Super easy to set up and I was listening to vinyl in no time. Beautiful glossy wood finish on plinth. Belt was a breeze to install as was balancing tonearm. The sound from the included Ortofon cartridge is warm with just enough treble. I've tried other turntables in this price range, but nothing compares even closely to this one. You won't regret purchasing!

    Brian B. February 5, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years New York, United States

    This is my first turntable and I'm really digging it. It looks really nice in person and sounds good.

    Robert M February 5, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years Florida, United States

    Great Sound at a fantastic price! I have had this RT-82 turntable for a few weeks and I am really impressed. It looks great on my entertainment center and sounds even better. I am new to vinyl and really enjoying finding new (old) records in record stores and other discount locations. Very happy with my purchase.

    Robert M January 30, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years Florida, United States

    What unbelievable sound!!! I have recently gotten into vinyl records and really did my research on turntables. After much thought I selected the Fluance RT82. What a great decision it has been. I feel the sound is even better than my CD collection. Sean in customer service was very helpful in answering a few questions. I really love this turntable and I am enjoying my new hobby. Finding new/old albums in record stores, Goodwill, etc., has been a lot of fun!

    William S January 29, 2019 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Ontario, Canada

    Love It !!!! Great Turntable for the price, easy set up & it sounds amazing !!! No bells & Whistles.

    Rain F January 17, 2019 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Ontario, Canada

    This is a great piece of gear for the money. My wife and I had about 300 albums, then my father gave me his collection of about the same, and then my father in law gave us HIS collection of 1000+ titles. As I sorted crate after crate after crate, I really felt compelled to up my game on the TT front. I searched for days on end, trying to squeeze every drop of tone I could from my modest pile of loonies, and am beyond satisfied with my decision to go with the RT82. I find myself listening to music at every possible moment now, which is ultimately what it's all about.
    Quick shipping, great customer aftercare. A definite vote from me if you're wondering what to put under your albums.

    Sean A. January 7, 2019 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years British Columbia, Canada

    I love this turntable! It sounds incredible and is very well built. It's easy to setup and you'll be listening to your vinyl within a few minutes of unpacking. I can't recommend this turntable highly enough.
