    I bought my RT82 as a TT for my second system in my family room. After using it, I may try a A/B comparison against my Pro-Ject Debut Carbon EVO in my main system. I'm very impressed so far.

    Rob, R. October 26, 2021 Colorado, United States

    I purchased the RT82 to install it into an antique Victrola console i restored. Unfortunately, this will be given as a gift to by father. I say unfortunately because in my testing of all the components, I really enjoyed everything about the RT82. It looks amazing, sounds great, it just really delivered on my hopes. And setup was a breeze!
    If there was one "improvement", would love an auto return on the arm, as part of the auto-off function, where the arm would return to its cradle after finishing the record. But that is a minor wish when I consider what the RT82 delivers on.
    Would recommend this turntable to anyone will to spend a little bit more than an entry level turntable (but nowhere close to the expensive higher-level audiophile options). This can deliver great sound with a great look, and at a reasonable price.

    Fantastic product, great quality and value. I’m beyond satisfied

    Justin Q October 11, 2021 Ohio, United States

    First timer here and I think I make the right pick. Easy to setup, easy to use, sounds amazing. My ONE issue is the metal cap that covers the motor doesn't fit properly, if it's installed the motor doesn't spin. I just left it off for now and it works like a charm (haven't had time to call in yet)

    Chelsea D October 8, 2021 British Columbia, Canada

    I bought this as a gift after researching the best record players on the market. One year later still extremely happy with the purchase.

    Hertel September 30, 2021 New Brunswick, Canada

    The perfection for the price!!!

    Peter September 28, 2021 Nova Scotia, Canada

    Love that turntable! The only thing I would do different is that I would buy the RT 84 or 85, because of the Ortofon 2M Blue. It costs a bit more to upgrade after and then it needs adjusting. Not a big deal so.

    Besides loving the turntable, I am also amazed with the fantastic service I got from Julie. I had the occasional buzzing sound showing up. She helped me trying to figure out what it is. I narrowed it down to the RCA cable and she promptly send me a replacement. It's rare these days to get such great service.

    Thank you Fluance for great products and service!!!

    I’m t September 26, 2021

    Recommended for those that are beginners to vinyl, or someone that has been doing it for a long time. Great value and quality.

    Amazon Customer September 19, 2021

    Once I discover it needed a amplifier it was easy, my speakers had a amplifier in them but are not strong enough to give sound to deck, i bought the amplifier from Amazon it was only 17.99 and very small, now set up it has a great sound, stereo was easy to set up.

    pavel September 18, 2021

    my favourite turntable now

    Andrew H September 17, 2021

    Although I’ve been very into achieving great sound quality, I’ve only recently been getting into the world of vinyl. I had always used simple, cheap turntables where you move the needle and go. This one comes with excellent instructions on how to adjust the counter weight, make sure the table is level and a lot of other information on how to achieve the best sound. My albums have never sounded better and I recommend this turntable for anyone else who wants superb audio quality without completely breaking the bank.

    Ken J September 16, 2021 Kentucky, United States

    I wanted to love the RT 82, but I have since returned the unit. The good—quality build, easy setup, nice visual presentation. The bad—-the Ortofon OM 10 is just not a very good cartridge and Fluance needs to up their game on this choice. The deal breaker was the auto stop feature. Sometimes it worked and other times not. When it did work, I felt like it took too long to function. The manual states that it may take 30 seconds or longer to activate and that’s too long IMO. I probably would have been much happier with a semi-automatic which Fluance did not offer.

    A. S September 10, 2021

    I am shocked and appalled at how loud and terrible the motor is. Out of the box there was an issue with this turntable. A very audible and loud noise came from the motor, and the speed is all over the place. I will be returning this turntable, and buying another brand. I should have not gambled and listened to the other review honestly.

    Tim September 4, 2021 Illinois, United States

    OUTSTANDING deck. Stunning finish, "weight" , build. Does everything I want it to, no more, no less. And does it elegantly. Sound is fantastic out-of-box, and getting progressively better throughout break-in period. Can't believe they pack so much performance / style into this price point. LOVE. Looking forward to exploring more of the Fluance product line.

    Mark D August 18, 2021 Ontario, Canada

    Amazing product! After doing some extensive research, I decided the RT82 is the perfect first turntable for me. Not only is this turntable a beauty, but the quality is amazing. I've been enjoying each record I play on this. I've had one tiny defect but Julie from customer service helped me out with my issue. Customer service is one of the best I've ever seen. Glad I chose Fluance and I know I'll be sticking around for a long time because of their A+ customer service. Thank you Fluance for the quality product and thank you Julie for all the help!
