    I went a bought a turntable for about $80 or so at Best Buy. Talk about wow and flutter! So I decided to spring for a good one, bought a Fluance RT 82 and hoped for the best. It was well worth it and I can't stop smiling except for the fact I'm buying even more vinyl now!!

    Yannick W July 6, 2020 Quebec, Canada

    Very nice turntable for the price. Sounds awesome and it is so quiet.
    Easy to set up and use.
    The only downside is that the dust cover is on a cheap side.

    Justin C July 5, 2020 New Jersey, United States

    I have been in search of a high quality turntable to play my Dad's record collection for some time. After agonizing over options for months I finally settled on the RT82, and I'm glad i did. It was packaged well and came with everything you'd need to set up and start playing records. The sound was crisp and accurate. I didn't experience any skipping as I had with cheaper turntables. The turntable also has become a centerpiece to my living room and has very attractive styling -- I chose piano black. The ability to upgrade components in the future is a plus, but at this point doesn't seem necessary -- I am more than satisfied with this turntable as is.

    Lovely sound, solidly built and looks great. Highly recommend!

    Jeff S June 20, 2020 Ohio, United States

    Looking for a new analog turntable, and found the RT-82...great turntable- easy set up, and sounds great. Replaced my decades old Technics with this- moderately priced, and looks very nice. Received shipment with minor damage to the dust cover- contacted the company, and was sent a replacement right away. Very satisfied with product and service.

    Gene H June 19, 2020 North Carolina, United States

    I'm getting back into vinyl after 15 years away, having grown up with LPs and using good turntables. I'm building a new system and was delighted to find the RT82. It's definitely the best deal at this price range. Being able to control tonearm weight and anti-skating is rare at this price point, not to mention that it comes with an excellent Ortofon cartridge. A bonus is that the wood version is truly beautiful. I'm very pleased.

    Sean J June 18, 2020 Washington, United States

    This is a gorgeous, fantastic-sounding turntable! The RT82 a huge upgrade from the one I was using previously, but no surprise there. It has inspired me to quickly expand my modest record collection, as I can now truly experience my favorite albums. Setup was simple, although I was nervous when the platter did not spin at first. Resetting the belt fixed this issue and it has been working perfectly ever since. I now look forward to upgrading the platter and cartridge in the future. Thanks Fluance!

    amazing sound quality, I love everything about it. Beautifully made

    Gene M. June 16, 2020 Indiana, United States

    Product shipped and arrived much swifter than I expected. Visually, the turn table is impeccable. I love the piano black finish. The instructions were easy to follow and I had it up and running quickly. Also I was impressed that the pre-installed cartridge was perfectly aligned. Overall the sound quality is awesome and I am completely satisfied with the product and if I had to make the choice again, I wouldnt hesitate to purchase a Fluance product!

    Michael M. June 15, 2020 Texas, United States

    Very happy with my RT82, huge upgrade over my old Sony Turntable, much more accurate when i tested it with the RPM app. The autostop seems to work well and it pairs well with my Rolls VP29 with almost no background noise. Good overall table with lots of upgrade options down the line.

    Trevor D June 13, 2020 Maryland, United States

    Had been using an old Garrard GT15 with age related performance issues but I love it like an old friend. Researched new turntables for quite some time. Finally went ahead and got the RT82, should have done it sooner. It has renewed my enthusiasm for my vinyl collection. It looks beautiful (including white gloves to aid in setup was a nice touch) and sounds great. I have it hooked up to my old Harmon Larson 330c receiver. Very warm sound. Like the music is hugging me. In my opinion this quality could easily cost a couple hundred dollars more. Also it was packaged very well, very secure during shipping. Now for new speakers...

    Paul B June 11, 2020 Florida, United States

    Fit and finish was perfect- Piano Black leaves no room for flaws.
    Packaging was well done to protect the turn-table.
    Instructions where complete and easy to follow.
    And the most important part, it sounds amazing, at this price point there is no disappointment.

    Jack G June 10, 2020 Texas, United States

    We loved the look of the record player. Sounds great as well.

    JT P June 10, 2020 Pennsylvania, United States

    Originally bought an AT LP3. After about a week that turntable was having speed issues so I returned it and bought the RT 82. The RT 82 has blown me away with its quality build and sound, my only regret is that I didn’t purchase it sooner!

    Matt M June 9, 2020 North Carolina, United States

    Great turntable at a great price. Setup was very easy even for a novice. Looks and sounds fantastic. Very happy with this purchase.
