    Very happy with this product, packaging was great and nothing was damaged. I had a little difficulty putting it together but got it eventually, would rather have that then something damaged during shipping. -1 star due to not including the bubble level in my package, or at least I couldn’t find it in the packaging. Overall a great buying and listening experience.

    The Fluance reference series turntables are well built and the overall audio specifications are unrivalled at this price point. Just bear in mind these are manual turntables and will require your attention at the end of playing a vinyl. If you're looking for even higher audio specs perhaps replace the cartridge with a Grado. Otherwise this turntable as is paired with the ortofon cartridge is an exelent combination and worthy of your attention.

    I couldn't be more happy with the Finance RT82 I purchased. It was very easy to setup. I upgraded from a 1258 Dual, which I thought was a nice turntable, the Fluance blew it away!!!! It's so quiet. It's an incredible TT. I compared & shopped for 3 months before I pulled the trigger on it... I wish I had just grabbed it immediately! If your looking STOP! But a Fluance!!!!!

    My very first turntable for my system and I must say is awesome! I love build quality and most importantly the sound of it. The cartridge sounds really nice with nice wide sound stage and great center image

    Kimberly Spader Lamm January 3, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years North Carolina, United States

    It was beautiful and clearly high quality, unfortunately it was not the right one, I ordered the wood finish and we received the black one. I cannot get anyone on the phone to discuss an exchange, I sent in a request for an exchange and received shipping details, which did not indicate an exchange and I had to pay my own shipping to send it back. $25. I sure hope they post this review so I get the $25 off my my next order so that when I get my refund I can order the wood finish version and finally get to write a review on how it actually sounds.

    Love, love, love this turntable. I have a vintage tt, and I thought it was great, but this thing is amazing. Highly recommended. I'm not an audiophile, just a music fan, but this thing rocks.

    I've been eyeing Fluance turntables for a while and finally took the plunge. The RT82 sounds amazing and looks great too!

    Setup was more in depth than I imagined, but was dead simple.

    I love it!

    I've only played a few records so far, but what I've heard so far is great, beautiful sound. Unfortunately I received a damage RT 82 turntable--the plinth was badly cracked. I can't blame that on Fluance, the fault probably lies with UPS. Fluance's customer service has been solid so far. They are replacing the damaged deck. I look forward to the replacement.

    I had seen this in the walnut wood grain base, but got the piano black glossy and it is stunning. I have gone up the ladder, from RT80 to RT81 to now the RT82 with the belt visible outside the platter just a freakishly nice design. Like a show piece at an art show, unbeatable for the money!

    So very happy! I was unsure whether my 50 year old vinyl would sound okay. It's better than okay, Long John Baldry never sounded this good before! This is a solid turntable with great customer service. Glad I went with Fluance.

    Bert M. H. November 22, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years Arkansas, United States

    Love the looks of it the piano black is fantastic. It was well packaged and the white gloves that came with it added a touch of class. But the best thing is the way that it preformed. Records that looped before played right through. Can’t wait to up grade the platter! It’s going to look great with black

    Thomas M November 12, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years Oregon, United States

    This was a huge step up from the cheaper consumer turntable I had before, and I couldn't be happier. Came well packaged with good instructions. It looks as nice as it does in the pictures, and for me was a really good balance between price and performance, with a few key features (tone arm lever, auto stop, auto speed control) over a 100% manual table, without getting bloated or complex. I also picked up Fluance's pre amp and seems to work great. Would buy again for sure.
