    Carl S. February 12, 2019 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Ohio, United States

    I originally purchased in RT80 but it had severe speed issues. Returned the RT80 for a refund and purchased the RT83. I could not be happier with RT83. No issues. Excellent in every way.

    Very satisfied customer!

    100% satisfied. My RT-83 turntable sounds incredible and looks stunning! Setup was very smooth as it arrived with easy-to-follow instructions and all components and equipment were included. The quality is obvious as well. I researched a number of turntables prior to purchasing a Fluance and I am certain I made the best choice.

    Beautiful turntable! Well designed and packaged. A fair price for the quality.

    Tony G January 19, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 5 Years California, United States

    The unit is beautiful, seems to be well built, and the sound is of high quality. I am very happy with this turntable. Although, I might go with the RT85 if I had to do it over again to get the upgraded stylus and platter.
