    Right off the bat, this is my first turntable and I really don't have a point of comparison, but of you're looking for a beautiful table with amazing sound the RT82 is a great starting point that can be upgraded over time to match the RT85.

    If you're new to vinyl and looking for something at a mid range price point or even if you've been listening for a couple and ready to upgrade from a budget table, the RT82 is an excellent table for the price.

    My Fluance RT82 fulfills all my needs: it was easy to assemble, looks great, and along with a pair of Fluance bookshelf speakers, its given new life to my old vinyl. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

    Awesome sound at a great price
    Was looking at Rega turntables but went with Fluance in the end and have no regrets

    I would like to see a retaining post or recess for the 45 RPM adaptor. I also wish it had the capacity to spin 78 RPM records. Other than those two suggestions, the item is as advertised as performs beautifully for me.

    I have had an excellent experience with Fluance! Shipping was fast, set up was easy, but nothing beats the sound. The RT82 and the preamp are an amazing combo. Definitely recommend to anyone getting into vinyl or anyone that just wants to listen to their collection again.

    Never skips on some of my older wax. Clean sound that makes my budget speakers sound better than anticipated. Happy with this table and excited about the upgrade potential! Canadian Excellence!

    Easy to set up, comes with everything necessary besides the pre amp (I got a schiit for it recently), and puts out a wonderful range of sound. A major step up from my old crosley and p mount technics turntables. No gripes whatsoever so far.

    Needed a new turntable after 40 years. Did quite a bit of research before purchasing and am very pleased. It was well packaged, set-up instructions were easy to follow, appearance and sound quality are excellent. Very satisfied!!

    So far, I am very impressed with the RT-82. It arrived nicely boxed and set up was simple and quick. My first test was a half-speed master disc of the original Boston. The sound was nice and clear with no distortion nor feedback. The sound of pure music from vinyl reminds of what music should sound like with no compression or enhancements.

    After winding up with my late Mother-In-Laws LP collection, I decided to purchase the RT-82. It was easy to set-up and it has been quite rewarding reliving my wife's families past experiences with vinyl records. My wife and I have begun to add our own records to the collection and very much enjoy the entire experience.
