    I have a lot of high hopes for this turntable based on reviews in various trade magazines. After some trouble getting it up and running, I think I will enjoy this item. I must say that when I reported a problem with the initial setup, I received prompt attention from customer service to help resolve my issue. Rebecca, one of the customer support personnel, reached out to me with suggestions and tips on how to get through the setup process. I believe that Fluance is ready to help with any issue I may encounter with the turntable in the future, which, hopefully will be few.

    Beautiful turntable. We bought the piano black color. The unit was well packed. Instructions were good. The turntable is used at least three times weekly. Would buy again from Fluance

    Billy S May 17, 2022 Georgia, United States

    Seeing that the purchase of the RT82 was my second it was as pleasant as my first experience. What a great product and company, I would like it if you would please share my thoughts with the employees who made these products. After all they are the heart and soul that are producing such great products. From me to all of you, thank you and I now have a record player at both my houses.

    After buying another brand and returning it after 2 weeks I bought a Fluance RT82 and love it. Awesome sound, I will say Records are sounding so much better than my CD's

    Julia A April 29, 2022 British Columbia, Canada

    Impressed with the speed of delivery, quality of packaging, and of course my turntable. The perfect upgrade for me. Truly worth it. Also great to support a Canadian company.

    Ward H April 27, 2022 Virginia, United States

    I love it! It's a major upgrade for me and I'm really enjoying it. It's made me a more active listener of vinyl and taught me a few things along the way. I really dig having something worthy of the records I've been buying, too. Easy to put together, too! Great experience.

    Brandon B. April 22, 2022 Wisconsin, United States

    I love my new Fluance Turntable! It looks and sounds gorgeous!

    Rick V April 21, 2022 Ontario, Canada

    Incredible looking and sounding turntable for the value. Is my first entry into higher end sound for turntables and happy I went with Fluance. I noticed an immediate improvement in sound quality and the act of playing records is fun again. I went with the RT82 for budgetary reasons so I am looking forward to upgrading it with new components over time, likely with a new cartridge first.

    Sebastien A. April 20, 2022 Ontario, Canada

    Well made product! Sounds great! Even better price!

    Anthony C April 19, 2022 New Jersey, United States

    Could not be happier with this turntable delivered when promised packed extremely well not difficult to set up sounds amazing great value

    Steven D April 13, 2022 Maryland, United States

    Great turntable. Huge upgrade from my beginner turntable.

    Jim R. April 11, 2022 Ontario, Canada

    I love my RT82. I'm an engineer and I am very impressed with the quality and build of this turntable. The shipping was faster than I expected. Only regret I have is not going with the RT83 with it's 2M Red cartridge after having done a bit more research since I purchased.

    Scott F April 11, 2022 Tennessee, United States

    1st unit was was faulty out of the Box. Fluence was quick to send a return label and shipped a new one out very quickly . Replacement turntable works flawlessly and I am thoroughly enjoying having a turntable again. Workmanship of turntable is outstanding. I would definitely buy again.

    Eser S April 11, 2022 Pennsylvania, United States

    I got my RT82 in piano black so I wouldn't have two different wood colors when it was on my dark brown turntable stand. The included instructions to setup were perfect and easy to follow. The sound quality of my collection is surprising on this turntable, I'm not sure I would benefit from upgrading the stylus. I have this setup on my first floor with a basement underneath and the room is notorious for a bounce when people are walking heavy footed. I have almost zero skips from it. I did buy a stylus force scale to help set the counterweight optimally and I did find the ticks on the counterweigh were a little off from the scale, as expected so my recommendation is invest in a cheap one. Overall, this is a fantastic turntable!

    Craig L April 7, 2022 Alaska, United States

    Fast shipping, turntable looks and sounds great, solid packaging, setup instructions were clear and easy to follow for a beginner, no complaints. Thanks Fluance!
