    I bought this turn table as a gift for my boyfriend, he was thrilled to open it. We have it hooked up to his Klipsch table top speaker. We are both novice users but it sounds great, was relatively easy to set up, and looks beautiful in his media center. There was a slight bend in the rubber mat when we opened it which was the only disappointment. I probably would have gone with the acrylic disk if I were to purchase again.

    I love this TT. Got it on sale for $379 and It is worth double the price. In an age of compressed lifeless music this TT brings depth and nuance back to music that you can feel in your soul.

    Very quiet. The Ortofon 2M has a better high end than my previous AT cartridge and seems to track well on the few warped discs I've tried. I decided it was time for a new turntable when I realized I hadn't bought one since about 1964 when I saved up all my paper route money to buy an Acoustic Research :-)

    What can I say about this record player, absolutely think this was a wise purchase. The setup was pretty easy and the sound quality is amazing. Would defiantly suggest this player to anyone looking to upgrade.

    I spent a bunch of time looking for the best record player to dip my toes into vinyl. I would consider the Fluance line (basically any model, RT82 and above) the best place to start. I picked it because they're upgradable and was originally going to go with the RT83, but the 84 happened to be on sale for a few bucks more.The platter works, the tone arm seems to be well made with good materials, the cover is really easy to install and the whole thing is pretty plug and play. There are three legs on the bottom, instead of four - which actually makes it easier to get the thing level since you're not fighting with two legs on either side. The whole thing is well constructed and looks nice enough.I also considered some of the Audio Technica options and U-turn's turntables. Both of those options also looked great, but something about the design and finish of the RT84 fit me a little better. I can't speak to the sound compared to other record players since this is my first, but after spinning the first few LP's I was grinning ear to ear and super happy with my purchase.I was happy enough to come write my first Amazon review after 10-odd years of buying crap on here. Only I didn't come write the review because that was about 6 weeks ago. It wasn't until I had a small issue swapping out my needle (just to try something different) and I asked a question on the Fluance website. It wasn't much, but they responded quickly and gave me a bunch of info about different needle compatibility. The point at which the company, their product and their customer service were all awesome led me to actually write this.If you're looking for a record player you won't regret buying this.

    Pros: easy to setup, great servo motor, sounds great, easy to useCons: dust cover prone to scratches (better off not using it). lacks adjustability (no vta on headshell and can't adjust tonearm height). also I'd prefer if these came without a cartridge so you can add your own.I don't think the ortofon 2m is a great match for this table. I recommend to get this table on sale and sell the cartridge at which point the table should cost around $180. Then add a Nagaoka MP-110 or Denon DL-110. IMO this is a more cost effective way to get great sound. I do wish the arm and headshell were more adjustable and higher quality. But these are worth getting on sale, for what you get. If you change headshells you can get vta adjustment, but you may have to use shims to get the height correct.

    My first record player and I think it sounds better than cd's. I got an 80's equalizer, Onkyo EQ-35, instead of the preamplifier and its hooked up to an Onkyo 838 with 1990's Infinity SM series surround speakers. I have incredible clarity with this set up and I'm in love with record players now

    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.
