    THE UNIT CAME THROUGH PERFECT PHYSICALLY. SEEMS TO HAVE A LITTLE ISOLUTION ISSUE ON THE BASE. IF ONE TAPS SLIGHTLY ON THE WOOD BASE, YOU HEAR IT THROUGH THE CARTIDGE. ALSO DISAPOINTED ON THE AUTO SHUT OFF FEATURE.IT WOULD TAKE AN INCH OR MORE PAST THE LABEL TO ACTIVATE.

    I'm very happy with the 82. My sibling has an 85 and highly recommend your tables. Very high quality for the price.

    For a turntable that's so reasonably-priced, the build quality and features are impressive. After some simple setup, it plays like a dream and because of the way these turntables are made, at this price point, it's basically a foundational platform that can easily turn into an RT85 down the road. Overall, a really solid turntable for general enthusiasts or someone new to vinyl looking to start things off right.

    My 1979 Technics Q3 finally went bad on me and I needed a good turntable while I worked on it.
    I wanted a removable headshell as I have many different cartridges I like to use. After researching for weeks I opted for the Fluance RT82, it had the functionality I wanted and the satin bamboo finish was all I could think about.
    I could not be happier! The tone rivals and even surpasses that of my old Technics... that was unexpected. The first thing I noticed is how quiet it is between songs and at lulls in the music... never noticed the rumble of my direct drive until it wasn't there.
    So, the Fluance went from a place holder to my main turntable. Right now I am running one of my 1978 Audio Technica LS 500 carts on it and the sound is simply phenomenal. Not to mention how nice the satin bamboo finish with black tonearm look with my set up.

    I have a lot of high hopes for this turntable based on reviews in various trade magazines. After some trouble getting it up and running, I think I will enjoy this item. I must say that when I reported a problem with the initial setup, I received prompt attention from customer service to help resolve my issue. Rebecca, one of the customer support personnel, reached out to me with suggestions and tips on how to get through the setup process. I believe that Fluance is ready to help with any issue I may encounter with the turntable in the future, which, hopefully will be few.

    Beautiful turntable. We bought the piano black color. The unit was well packed. Instructions were good. The turntable is used at least three times weekly. Would buy again from Fluance

    Seeing that the purchase of the RT82 was my second it was as pleasant as my first experience. What a great product and company, I would like it if you would please share my thoughts with the employees who made these products. After all they are the heart and soul that are producing such great products. From me to all of you, thank you and I now have a record player at both my houses.

    Impressed with the speed of delivery, quality of packaging, and of course my turntable. The perfect upgrade for me. Truly worth it. Also great to support a Canadian company.

    I love it! It's a major upgrade for me and I'm really enjoying it. It's made me a more active listener of vinyl and taught me a few things along the way. I really dig having something worthy of the records I've been buying, too. Easy to put together, too! Great experience.

    Incredible looking and sounding turntable for the value. Is my first entry into higher end sound for turntables and happy I went with Fluance. I noticed an immediate improvement in sound quality and the act of playing records is fun again. I went with the RT82 for budgetary reasons so I am looking forward to upgrading it with new components over time, likely with a new cartridge first.
