    Love the new turntable!! Been years since I spun vinyl on my 40+ yr old Marantz 6100 so was excited to upgrade to the Fluance RT-82. Build quality is excellent!

    Very great turntable. Really easy to put together and once put together, it is excellent sounding. Only complaint I have is that it brings out how poor condition some of my records are in, but that’s on me! Tip: Buy Mint/NM/VG+ records only, if you can.

    I really like the RT-82 , very solid, dead quiet, and looks great! I upgraded from a Technics SL BD22 and I could not be happier.

    Walnut looks great and the turntable has some weight to it, which is nice. Easy to setup and easy to use. Sounds really good. The price was even cheaper than other stores. Shipping was fast and it's great that it's free!

    I don't know much about turntables and this is my first turntable, but why you would get another brand in this price range?

    The standard features for this model are perfect and the finish is beautiful. I like how the features it has are simple and that it doesn't have other features to complicate or fail. Although I do appreciate that the optical sensor for speed control.

    I don't have anything to compare the setup to, but it was fairly easy. The tone arm calibration took me two tries, just because I don't think I understood it the first time. But the second time worked and gave me great results. After moving it to a different location and redoing the tone arm, I got the same great results.

    I don't really have anything to compare the sound to other than MP3, CD, FLAC, and a couple of SACD though, but it sounds great and I can listen to some old records that my in-laws have and those sound really good considering how many times my MiL listened to some of them and treated them when she was younger like her Meet Beatles! album from 1964.

    But here is the real bonus of of owning a record player: Getting that art work and having something physical to hold in your hands. I didn't realize how much I missed that until getting this. And flipping through albums at the record store again is really fun too (even if I did start on cassette tapes).

    I like that they're adding more wood (bamboo) but the walnut I got is really pretty and I don't regret it.

    I don't think that I would hear a difference or know what to listen for so I don't plan on any upgrades anytime soon, but the acrylic platter is an eye catcher.

    With that, my father-in-law wants to buy a turntable (and get his records back from me) and I have so far talked him into Fluance. His budget is much greater than mine was so we shall see what happens.

    I am using a Yamaha R-N803 using Pure Direct Mode as the pre-amp and powering Paradigm Reference Studio 80 v1 speakers, no subwoofer. The RT82 and receiver on on top of an Ikea 2x3 Kallax.

    Talk about a superior product. After setting up the RT-82, I noticed an immediate difference in my records. I’ve been hearing sounds I never heard before. Plus I love that you can upgrade parts depending on your budget. I’ve already upgraded to the cork platter. I’m looking forward to years of enjoyment with the RT-82. Now I just have to wait for the acrylic platter to come back in stock.

    I've been listening on my mom's turntable for a few years, but I decided to invest in my own. After lots of research, I finally settled on the RT82 and couldn't be happier with it! It arrived quickly, the setup was simple, and the sound quality is fantastic.
