    Wonderful design, beutifully made. Easy setup.

    William F K May 10, 2023 Illinois, United States

    I chose the RT82 on the advice of a fellow audiophile. This machine is precisely and beautifully engineered and produced, so much superior to my last turntable, purchased 50+ years ago. I struggled with the initial set-up, given my 80+ years, but every knob, dial, pulley, bearing, and pulley fit precisely and worked smoothly. The supplied cartridge is playing my neglected LPs beautifully. Fluance is rapture!

    Gregory P May 2, 2023 Texas, United States

    I just received my RT82 Bambo turntable. It is very nice, and of high quality. And it sounds and looks amazing. I'm so very happy and excited with this purchase. If you are still looking for a top quality turntable look no further. Fluance is the way to go.

    Robert B April 25, 2023 New York, United States

    Beautiful machine and sounds amazing!

    Scott c April 17, 2023 Michigan, United States

    Upgrading from the LP20 and wow! Everything sounded different on my albums. Much more detail and clarity. Would definitely recommend in looking forward to doing the upgrades in the future

    Jasmine M. April 11, 2023 Montana, United States

    I am so glad I invested in a Fluance turntable! I am somewhat new to this hobby. I have been collecting vinyl records here and there, but never had a proper turntable to play them on. As a beginner, this is by far the best choice! I am happy that I am able to upgrade this easily over the years and my records sound fantastic. Very happy with it!

    Barry W April 1, 2023 Ontario, Canada

    Excellent performance exceeded all expectations! I would highly recommend Fluance turntables

    Pretty much everything I expected. Also customer service was helpful when I made a mistake with my order information.

    Jim P March 15, 2023 New Jersey, United States

    The product is well built and worth every penny.First I bought the rt 82 turntable.It sounds very good.The om10 cartridge give great sound for the money.I then purchase the rt 85 with Ortofon 2M Blue Stylus. Noticeable difference.Cleaner and fuller with more base. Definetly worth he extra $200.I do have a pretty superior sound system too and was able to hear the difference right away. Customer service is also awesome

    Kyle R March 10, 2023 Colorado, United States

    I am enjoying the Fluance 82 very much!

    Bryan C February 26, 2023 California, United States

    Excellent well balanced sound that brings the best out of your record. Simple elegant design. Cannot be beat for the price.

    Dylan H February 23, 2023 Missouri, United States

    I absolutely love the RT82!! I had an AT-LP120 USB for over 10 years and felt like now would be the perfect time for a change. I'm so glad that I switched over to Fluance for the the true Analog sound and quality build. I know this turntable will last me many years to come!
