    Joseph D January 22, 2020 New Jersey, United States

    Aside from superb sound quality, I like the lift-able see-through cover. The cueing lever is easy to use. And I like the stylish classic look to it.

    Robert C. W. January 14, 2020 Alberta, Canada

    Simplified setup with an RT81/ai40 bundle. Loving it. Bulky vintage equipment and 5 speaker setup gone in favour of bluetooth and the turntable is a nice introduction to modern vinyl technology. Previous player was a Sanyo from 1977 and am impressed that this one is 10x better in almost every way, aside from a lack of auto return of the arm once the record is done playing... but not a big deal at all. Great decision to support a good Canadian company (as a Canadian) upon choosing to enter the world of higher end brands that put sound and quality at the forefront. Looking forward to a lifetime of products!

    I purchased this turntable for my wife and she LOVES IT. Sounds fantastic and is a very classy piece of audio equipment. Highly recommended.

    T October 5, 2019 Texas, United States

    Beautiful product.

    Michael D. October 2, 2019 Massachusetts, United States

    Awesome Product! It looks sleek and modern, and the sound quality for such small speakers is loud and crisp treble and deep bass for such a small speaker size. We are very happy and highly recommend Fluance products.

    Steven S. October 1, 2019 Missouri, United States

    It feels disingenuous giving this 3 stars, as the equipment did sound great. However, I have not had the best experience with my order. I ordered the Natural Walnut turntable and speakers as a gift to my wife, but was sent the black turntable and white speakers. Besides receiving the wrong equipment, I had to send pictures to prove they sent the wrong items before they would issue the return. I was told when UPS received they would cross ship the correct items. I dropped them off with UPS 3 days ago and they still have not shipped anything.

    Aj C September 2, 2019

    Love the sound and ease of setup. Would not be hard to upgrade to external amp and/or higher end needle to make this as good or better than a setup costing a thousand dollars.

    Benjamin July 18, 2019 New York, United States

    Sound really good for the price.

    Reid June 27, 2019 Georgia, United States

    It may be the best turntable setup I could have gotten for under $500.

    Brian C. M April 30, 2019 Iowa, United States

    After my cousin told me about the Record Store Day sale at Fluance, I finally decided to make the purchase since it was such an awesome deal. My current setup was too vintage looking and I definitely wanted some more modern that played just as well. Since my cousin did most of the research, I trusted his judgment and he wasn’t wrong. This turntable is beautiful and just what I wanted in a modern, clean look with the quality I was looking for. The speakers are okay compared to my old KLH speakers but are superior with their Bluetooth capability which I love. Overall, I would definitely recommend Fluance to anyone in the market for a quality setup.

    Josh G April 30, 2019 Texas, United States

    I had high hopes for this purchase and I’ve NOT been disappointed. Originally I wanted to get the RT83 turntable and the Ai40 speakers, but I wasn’t ready to write that proverbial check. I watched it for months and then a special was offered on the RT81 with the Ai40 speakers bundled. I chose to drop down a couple of models and hope they would still be good enough. Doing so I saved quite a bit of money.

    The packages arrived, very nicely packed by the way, the setup was really easy, and the sound and quality met and even exceeded my expectations. We love it!

    I really would have liked to get the RT83, but honestly I am so pleased with this purchase, and my checking account is healthier because of it.

    I’m coming from an all-in-one Crosley Nomad and into the RT81. Honestly, it’s like we’ve moved from a base model KIA sedan to a BMW. The quality of parts and the sound is light years beyond our Crosley. That said, I know you can go up and up from here, but for someone who is not an audiophile, though I am way more serious about this than the average guy, and I’ve done many, many hours of research...this has been a wonderful upgrade! I’ve already recommended it to my friend John in Florida and he got the same model and he loves it as well.

    Matthew Z April 4, 2019 Mississippi, United States

    Great product, and great customer service! Works very well, sounds awesome, and they helped me with any setup difficulties I had; well recommended

    Dwayne E. Cyrus April 1, 2019 West Virginia, United States

    Sounds great. Easy set-up. The speakers work well with the turntable. With a pre-amp already in the turntable and active speakers, it is ready to go out of the box.

    Raymond March 8, 2019 California, United States

    This is a very good combo for a newcomer to vinyl. The turntable is well built and the sound quality out of the speakers are superb. The speakers have a very deep bass which is amazing for their size. The only downside I have against this combo is I didn't know the RT81 doesn't have adjustable feet so it's not very easy to adjust out of the box.

    Raymond L March 6, 2019 California, United States

    Very nice deal for turntable and speakers bundle. The speakers are a bit smaller than I anticipated but they packed a deep and powerful bass. I have never owned a turntable before but overall I liked the sound and build quality of RT81. I’m also a bit surprised that the feet of RT81 is not height adjustable so it was a bit tricky to get the perfect level. That’s the only downside I have found in the turntable.
