    It was my granddaughter who got me back into vinyl. I gifted her my old Marantz turntable, then decided to try something new. The Fluance RT82 fit my budget, and sounds better than any vinyl spinner I have ever listened to. Depth and detail shine on every track.

    The turntable was easy to assemble & it worked like charm with no distortion, no hums with the proper connections, even with the default RCA cables (sounded better with Audioquest Forest RCA between the turntable and the preamp)

    I'm a beginner vinyl hobbyist, so there's not much weight to my thoughts here. But I will say the assembly of the RT82 was simple and straightforward thanks to the helpful videos. I know the sound quality is also as good as the lowest-quality piece of equipment in your setup, and my preamp and amplifier are not exactly what I'd call top of the line. My speakers, while the most expensive speakers I've ever owned, are still considered entry-level. However, I have never had music sound so good as I do now. I feel like I can hear what material the instruments are made of.

    The turntable itself has a premium feel in its operation. I love how it looks in my setup. Even my kids are using it competently like little audiophiles. Very happy overall with the purchase and would highly recommend for anyone entering into the hobby.

    Great table overall. Had a small issue with a crooked head shell that was quickly solved. Brent from customer support was super helpful and quick to send me a new one.

    As can happen with electronic equipment, the first turntable I ordered had a speed control problem. I called Fluance Customer Service and worked with Brent. After 15 minutes of failed troubleshooting attempts, Brent offered to process and return and refund so I could order a replacement unit. I can't overstate how excellent Fluance's Customer Service is. The replacement turntable works perfectly. The Lucky Bamboo finish is sophisticated elegance. I don't think there is a better $300 turntable out there. I have upgraded the cartridge to a Nagaoka MP200 to extract the best performance for my classical record collection. I think the RT82 is an ideal starting point for a vinyl record hobbyist. You're starting with an excellent unit which can be easily upgraded as your passion for the hobby grows.

    THE UNIT CAME THROUGH PERFECT PHYSICALLY. SEEMS TO HAVE A LITTLE ISOLUTION ISSUE ON THE BASE. IF ONE TAPS SLIGHTLY ON THE WOOD BASE, YOU HEAR IT THROUGH THE CARTIDGE. ALSO DISAPOINTED ON THE AUTO SHUT OFF FEATURE.IT WOULD TAKE AN INCH OR MORE PAST THE LABEL TO ACTIVATE.

    I'm very happy with the 82. My sibling has an 85 and highly recommend your tables. Very high quality for the price.

    For a turntable that's so reasonably-priced, the build quality and features are impressive. After some simple setup, it plays like a dream and because of the way these turntables are made, at this price point, it's basically a foundational platform that can easily turn into an RT85 down the road. Overall, a really solid turntable for general enthusiasts or someone new to vinyl looking to start things off right.

    My 1979 Technics Q3 finally went bad on me and I needed a good turntable while I worked on it.
    I wanted a removable headshell as I have many different cartridges I like to use. After researching for weeks I opted for the Fluance RT82, it had the functionality I wanted and the satin bamboo finish was all I could think about.
    I could not be happier! The tone rivals and even surpasses that of my old Technics... that was unexpected. The first thing I noticed is how quiet it is between songs and at lulls in the music... never noticed the rumble of my direct drive until it wasn't there.
    So, the Fluance went from a place holder to my main turntable. Right now I am running one of my 1978 Audio Technica LS 500 carts on it and the sound is simply phenomenal. Not to mention how nice the satin bamboo finish with black tonearm look with my set up.
