    This is only my second turntable in the past 45 years. It was very easy to setup and having the auto-stop at end of play is a excellent option. The three leg design seemed odd but made the leveling process super easy! great design.

    when purchasing the turntable on the Fluance website when it asked for my address, a prompt would appear saying that it was reformatting my mailing address after I had typed it in, when it did this it would strip away my unit number, as I live in a town home. This made me nervous as its an expensive purchase, I contacted the only person seemingly available on Fluance the facebook page and told them, there is a place to type in unit on the website but it keep erasing it. They said this shouldn't happen but it should be fine. I figured out if I put my unit number on the same line as the street box it didn't strip the unit number out. A week and a half later UPS kept changing the delivery date finally stating that there was an issue with my address. I spent hours trying to figure out how to get the turntable as UPS does not have anyone you can talk to. Finally through a series of voice prompts I cancelled the delivery and said I would pick it up at the airport. I then spent several hours in a coronavirus line at the airport waiting. The turntable sounds good.

    I absolutely love the ease of this turntable! The RT-84 is a stellar purchase for anyone looking to take that leap into vinyl collecting. Such pure and crisp sound for the price point! Cannot be beat. Go buy one. Now!

    I’m enjoying the Fluance RT84 from the quick delivery, ease of set up right down to the outstanding audio performance. Best bang for the buck in my opinion!! This tt is mated to Marantz PM7000N and playing through Audioquest CV-4 wire to Focal 906 bookshelves. The perfect match!

    This turntable has taken my experience to the next level. Replaced an Audio Technica and does not disappoint. The depth to the music is just insane by comparison.

    The RT84 is incredible as soon as you open the packaging. You can literally feel the quality pouring out of the box. After spending the better part of 2 decades with an ATLP-60, this baby is a masterpiece. A quick run through with the set up instructions to set up the belt, the platter, balance the tone arm, etc and we're off and running. Naturally I chose my favorite and arguably one of the best live albums of all time to be the first played on the table (ABB - At Fillmore East '71) and it did not disappoint. The RT84 is an incredible TT for fair price. It's a quality build that seems like it will be a part of my set up for many, many years to come.

    I am not an audiophile by any means but my only experience with vinyl before this was old thrift store hand me downs. I never knew vinyl could be so clear sounding, I always thought the crackles and pops were an inherent flaw of the format. Well worth the investment.

    Fred J March 24, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years British Columbia, Canada

    Over the past year I read as many turntable reviews as I could find. I found Fluance was almost always noted as a contender in my price range. I was considering the RT83, but when they added the the Ortofon Blue cartridge to the RT84 I was convinced to get that model.

    Delivery was quick. I was a little bit concerned about setting it up, but there's a great YouTube video and it actually came together easily. The little levelling tool is great.

    So it's well reviewed, came quickly, and was easy to assemble. Now, it looks great and sounds lovely. I had a vintage Toshiba direct drive, and this really does sound noticeably richer. I'm very happy with this purchase.

    Justin M March 22, 2020 Audiophile - 20+ Years North Carolina, United States

    This is a beautiful looking and wonderful sounding turntable. I've upgraded from an older vintage Sony model. The Ortofon 2M Blue cartridge reveals unheard details in comparison with the cartridge used on my old Sony. The RT-84 is also much more aesthetically pleasing.

    Setup took about 30 minutes from opening the box to playing records. Everything was well packaged.

    A couple of minor gripes. Due to the high gloss, there are micro scratches in the finish and the dust cover. They're only visible when looking close up in the right lighting. Also, the hinges are a bit creaky, but hopefully they break-in over time.

    Otherwise this is a great unit, especially for the price.

    I recently set up my RT-84 and am super happy. It's gorgeous and sounds great. It's exactly what I was expecting based on its online representation and I'm glad I took the leap.

    Seamus S March 19, 2020 Advanced Listener - 2 Years New York, United States

    This turntable was very straight forward to set up and is an absolute joy to listen to. The Ortofon Blue cartridge makes a night and day difference over the cartridge on my previous turntable.

    Bill P March 18, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Georgia, United States

    I was not familiar with Fluance products until I began researching turntables. A small group of manufacturers, including Fluance, consistently received favorable ratings in online reviews for products in my price range. The RT83 met my needs in a stylish package and included the Ortofon 2M Red cartridge at a reasonable price.

    THEN, on the day I planned to order it, Fluance put their RT84 ON SALE! I bit. For a modest increase I upgraded to the 2M Blue. (If the 2M Red were a hot fudge sundae, the Blue would be the same, but with nuts and a cherry on top.)

    My RT84 arrived well packaged and in prefect condition. Setup was straightforward. I paired it with a phono preamp found on Craigs List, an Adcom preamp & amp, and Monitor Audio bookshelf speakers.

    First Music was Carly Simon's Torch followed by Willie Nelson's Stardust. They never sounded so good. At some point I stopped listening analytically and simply immersed myself in the moment. The Fluance RT84 just became transparent and got out of the way of the music. Then came the big test – Horowitz in Moscow. I believe a piano is likely the hardest instrument to accurately record and play back. This is where the RT84 won me over. The sound stage grew noticeably, and closing my eyes, I could almost believe there was a Steinway Grand in the room with me.

    Highly recommended.

    NOTE I ordered the walnut finish as I felt that fingerprints on the gloss black might become an issue. However, the walnut is every bit as glossy (and fingerprinty) so don't let that be a deciding factor. Use the white gloves provided by Fluance for assembly.
