    I am happy to be the first buyer to complete the feedback loop and state unequivocally that the new Fluance RT-85 is an absolutely awesome product with excellent quality and sonic performance.
    1st: upgraded acrylic high impetus platter,
    2nd: new 500 times/sec automatic speed adjustment,
    3rd: leaving out the phono stage means 100% pure analogue, and
    4th: moving way up to the Ortofon 2M Blue cartridge means greatly expanded soundstage, purer sonic response and perfect price performance leading to my "home run" declaration!

    After just a few days of critical listening both my wife and I are truly impressed and excited about the opportunity to try the new top of the line RT-85 of the Reference Turntable series. It arrived a day early (Monday), easily and straightforward setup meant it was already providing pure stereo vinyl audio with nothing but ease. This weekend will provide an even longer / larger stream of sessions with true critical listening, but it is obvious to both of us that we made an excellent investment in our new TT!

    Kudos to the team for putting together a real winning combination of improvements and we encourage everyone to "go deep" along with us!
