    A am very happy with this turntable ... from its beautiful look to the warm sound. the blue ortofon cartridge gives. The only minor flaw that I see is that the tone arm takes too long to lift at the end of the record. I hope that the stylus isn't being damaged. I still give it 5 stars anyway.

    I purchased an RT85 after they finally came back in stock. It had a very noisy back foot. Any movement of the turntable caused this foot to make an annoying creaking sound. I returned it under the 30 day refund policy. I then purchased a RT84 and it has the same defective noisy back foot. Since the RT84 has the lighter aluminum platter rather than the heavy acrylic platter, the back foot is not as noisy. After posting my experience on Fluance Turntable Facebook page, I learned other owners have experienced the same issue with their reference model turntables. This is obviously a design flaw that Fluance needs to address. Aside from the foot issue, the turntable sounds great. I upgraded from an RT81 and with the Ortofon Blue cartridge, the difference in sound is like night and day. After one week of owning the RT84, I have no plans to return it.

    The RT84 looks and sounds great. I have the updated version with the 2M Blue and metal platter. Overall this table has quality features, components at a very fair price. Like the ease of being able to switch cartridges without fuss. Also allows for use of your choice of RCA cables. Sound is excellent, allow time for the 2M Blue to break-in.

    This turntable is the perfect middle ground for someone who's just getting into collecting vinyl or for a more seasoned audiophile. As a newcomer, myself, I originally purchased a competitor's TT but I noticed that it had a somewhat filtered sound in the high frequency range. After some research I became aware that it was the built-in pre-amp that wasn't providing a clear signal path, even when bypassed. The online community's solution was the open it up and physically remove the pre-amp. Not wanting to perform this "surgery" on a brand new TT, I decided to return it and upgrade. I saw a lot of glowing reviews of the Fluance RT81 but once I saw the Reference models don't have a built in pre-amp, I intrigued. The fact that it also comes with an Ortofon 2M Red AND acrylic platter, I was sold. Had it for a couple weeks now and I couldn't be happier. I attached my own head shell with an AT-VM540ML cartridge and this TT just sounds amazing! Had a friend of mine stop over and he walked in the door, thought I was listening to a CD. Of the TT is a small piece of the puzzle as pre-amp, power amp and speakers will effect your overall sound, the old rule of garbage in, garbage out stands and the RT84 assures that you'll be inputting a high quality signal to your sound system.
