    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!

    Rick K February 20, 2023 other

    Love this upgrade! Decent sound, simple operation, and super stable speed (love that!!). One big thiang and one little thing. The big thing, Fluance says the cartridge comes prealigned and you don't need to check it I trusted that... However, after about 15 hours of not sounding as it should (I thought it was stylus wear in), I checked the alignment and it was waaaaay out. So yeah, donr trust that the cartridge comes prealigned, mine certainly didn't! I hope I didn't mess up my break in period!!! One other thing, the tone arm lifting handle feels pretty cheap (a little attention could be given to that one piece).

    Austin L February 18, 2023 Michigan, United States

    I’ve heard a lot of good things and it was all true . I love my rt82 from the looks down to the quality. Highly recommend

    Woody R February 17, 2023 Tennessee, United States

    I bought this for my musician son after our old Techniqs died. He loves it. No issues and a great turntable.

    Curtis February 15, 2023 Ohio, United States

    The RT82 came within 3 days, packaged beautifully with great instructions that led to an easy setup. I run mine through a tube amp, into a preamp, and it sounds fantastic! Hell of a product that's easy to use and looks super clean.

    Brian February 6, 2023 Oregon, United States

    This is my first real turn table. I had no idea what I had been missing. I chose to go with the 82 for cost considerations with the idea to upgrade along the way. Assuming the needle lasts a few years, I’ll get the blue then. Platter when it feels right. It’s a killer piece of equipment.

    Marshall W February 6, 2023 Ohio, United States

    I had a problem with the RC cable . I contacted Fluance and Julie, their support rep, addressed the issue and sent a replacement cable.

    Fred S January 27, 2023 Illinois, United States

    Nice player. Looks awesome. Had vinyl from 1980’s that I kept. My gf bought me a player a couple years ago but wanted to get to get a better quality one. This one is very nice.

    Eric L. January 7, 2023 North Carolina, United States

    I bought this for the love of my life who has an extensive record collection but a subpar player. She’s a music connoisseur while I’m an audiophile with a love for good production value that brings the artists’ full intentions to life. She has been overjoyed at its performance and honestly so have I.

    Scott January 7, 2023 Pennsylvania, United States

    I previously had a Gemini turntable with Audio Technica cartridge and nude elliptical stylus. The Fluance RT82 arrived today and wow, what a difference! It is very quiet and smooth operating, and the ortofon OM10 cartridge tracks excellent. So much more of the music is now present, and I'm hearing things things that I didn't notice before. The bass is strong with a punch yet still well balanced with trebles amd mids. An all around fantastic listening experience compared to my old turntable. Assembly was easy and the instructions were extremely clear and helpful, and the turntable is a high quality build. . I am extremely pleased with this turntable!

    Marc-Andre January 6, 2023 Quebec, Canada

    Super simple to assemble and set up, this is my first experience with a turntable, I'm glad I spend the money for this great product. I compared it with the stir it up turn table and it's day and night!! The cartridge sounds amazing, I paired the turntable with Kanto YU6 and SUB8, great combo.

    Chris H. December 30, 2022 Texas, United States
