    “I had zero complaints about the Fluance RT83’s operation, it worked flawlessly the entire time I had it...Its combination of features and build quality isn’t just hard to fault for the price, it’s almost impossible to fault.

    I am not an audiophile, more of an enthusiast. Assembly and installment was relatively easy, the instructions were very straight forward. When I put on the first album, the sound quality absolutely blew me away. I LOVE my new Fluance turntable!

    Steve April 24, 2021 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Wisconsin, United States

    This player sounds fantastic! I am hearing nuances from my albums that I have not heard before and the clarity is phenomenal. It pairs well with my Denon receiver through the phono input and Klipsch speakers. Also love listening through headphones as well.

    The set-up was easy (highly recommend watching the videos on YouTube in addition to using the manual.) Had a small issue with the hinges creaking when opening the lid, but contacted customer service and they sent me new hinges immediately! Really responsive and the problem is solved!

    Added bonus, it looks really nice in our family room and my wife said yesterday, “I am really liking having this here. I love listening to albums way more than I thought I would.” It has been like rediscovering music. I should mention that I am a musician by trade and my entire work life has been in the music industry, so to say “rediscovering musicl is not just some catchy phrase. It really is like something new after years in music.

    Terry W April 23, 2021 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Alberta, Canada

    This turntable was every bit as good as all the reviews I've read and watched on youtube. And that's high praise indeed. The setup was flawless and the sound is marvellous. I highly recommend it! The only improvement for me would have been if the signal cable was just a little bit longer ... it does reach in my setup, but just.

    Pelkey February 23, 2021 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years Washington, United States

    Amazing turntable!

    Todd J. December 21, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 10 Years Kentucky, United States

    Excellent value for the money. Quality item. My only issue was the ability to change out the cartridge. Don't get me wrong the 2m Red is a very good cartridge, but I also have a few AT that I would have liked to use to compare the sound. Those are not compatible with the RT 83.

    Corina G December 19, 2020 Novice Listener - 1 Year Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

    Great record player! Very stylish looking!

    Stephane, D December 6, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 3 Years New Brunswick, Canada

    I really love my RT83 turntable. It's built solid, easy to assemble and love the adjustable legs that reduce vibrations and helps to make the player level.

    Tony R December 5, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years California, United States

    I up graded from a standard $100.00 Sony record player to the RT83 and wow what difference in quality, and much more important the quality of sound.

    JK November 16, 2020

    Well made, looks beautiful and the sound is rich and warm.

    Annie H November 13, 2020

    Very easy to install. Well packaged and reproduces the music excellent.

    Mike C November 11, 2020

    Good turntable very well made and great sound excellent

    Kevin B November 10, 2020 Audiophile - 20+ Years Ontario, Canada

    Great performance of this table has gotten me back into vinyl. Beautiful construction. Dead quiet. Constant speed. Only the thing I could add is if your are intending to upgrade the platter and stylus go for the RT 85 right from the start...great value! Happy Listening.

    Amazon Customer November 4, 2020

    I love love love this turntable! And if all you care about is getting a great deal, you could hardly do better. However, I ended up spending a lot more money because once I had the RT83, I realized that I really wanted the acrylic platter that comes with the RT85 as well as the more expensive phono cartridge that also comes with the RT85. NOW if you buy the 85 to begin with you'll pay $150 more than for the RT83. BUT you get about $350 worth of good stuff for your extra expenditure. So you know yourself and I don't know you. If you will be content with the RT83 then it's great deal. But if like me you will find yourself wishing you had bought the top of the line, you will save money if you buy it to begin with.

    Jesse C November 1, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Texas, United States

    the set up on this is tough....Still have not got it calibrated not sound dragged....First player in a long time, very disappointed. And yes, I've balanced and calibrated it twice.

    Richard C October 30, 2020 Audiophile - 20+ Years California, United States

    After research on YouTube from various video blogs reviewing Fluance turntable, I couldn’t be anymore happier with buying a Fluance for myself. So happy I made this investment for myself!
