    I love this turntable. I had a-t lpw50pb that picked up every little vibration. I already had a ortofon 2m blue cartridge. I will up grade to the acrylic platter. Did i say i love this rt82 turntable!

    Kevin L. January 6, 2022 Ontario, Canada

    This turntable is absolutely fantastic. The sound quality is wonderful and the build of the turntable is great as well. Love the fact that the table can be further upgraded later on if I choose to. Best bang for your buck in this price range without question. I did tons of research and am happy to have chosen the RT82.

    Glenn G January 5, 2022 Michigan, United States

    Excellent sounding turntable!. I wish there was a light to see tracks at night.. I like the OM10 soon will upgrade to the 2m red.

    Mark H. January 4, 2022 Wisconsin, United States

    I returned to listening to vinyl. My old turntable failed. Did a lot of online searching and found Fluance. I settled on the RT82 and I’m so pleased I did. Love how good it looks and how well it sounds. Set up was easy. Ok I must have watched way too many videos on how to set it up but there were no surprises. Everything was there and it all went as expected. I also did a fair amount of comparing on cartridges and I love the sound of the cartridge that came on this turntable.

    Great value and quality, especially for the money. This is my second Fluance turntable, having previously owned the RT81. My only complaint would be that they do not offer the option (with any turntable) to purchase something without the cartridge, as I already own much better carts than anything they offer. Otherwise I highly recommend.

    Chris G December 26, 2021 Ontario, Canada

    Upgrade from a vintage table. Immediately the quality is evident and I love the upgrade path thag Fluance offers. No other manufacturer can compete with the value in Fluance.

    Jeff B December 16, 2021 Massachusetts, United States

    Easy to assemble and calibrate and excellent sound!

    Kelly G December 15, 2021 Illinois, United States

    We may have to return the system as the tonearm does not adjust properly. I have tried contacting customer service but all they tell me via email is the same information that's in the manual. The tonearm doesn't lower so at this point the record player doesn't work.

    Mark L December 15, 2021 New York, United States

    I wanted my first turntable as something that wasn't too large of an investment, in caseI decided I didn't like it, but at the same time, one that was upgradeable so I could expand years down the road. I picked up the RT82 as the best of both worlds. First time setting it up, I had no idea what I was doing, but Fluance videos were a great help and made it very easy. Within minutes, I was listening to my first vinyl record and enjoyed the experience. Now I'm looking to build up my catalog.

    Bryan L December 14, 2021 Massachusetts, United States

    Very happy with my RT82. Sounds great and looks sharp. Can't beat it for the price.

    andrew b December 9, 2021 Texas, United States

    Could not be happier! I am filling out this review because Iam going to buy another fluance as a christmas gift for my daughter

    Sheldon C November 27, 2021 Ontario, Canada

    Everything that was promised and more. It truly is audiophile quality at a mid grade price. Great performance and beautiful piece to just look at.
    It even came with white gloves and level to balance it. Very pleased and impressed. Thank you for taking the time and care to do it right.

    Eric P November 16, 2021 Nevada, United States

    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.

    R. A November 11, 2021

    The turntable works great and has produces excellent sound on both new and well-used records.One item in the set-up process (which was otherwise straightforward) which is VERY important is the ground wire to the amplifier. The 3 foot long wire enclosed did not reach my amplifier and I tried to play it without connecting the ground. Very loud static feedback and a loud hum was the result. A home made wire eliminated that completely. The troubleshooting guide also mentions that speakers should not be on the same shelf near the turntable which is where mine were), that the amp should not be too close to it and that using an extension cord or power strip may also cause feedback or a hum. Since I am using permanent built-in shelving, the distance from the turntable to the amp and to the nearest outlet were not reachable with either the supplied ground wire or power cord. Fortunately, using a power strip extension seems to work fine. Also, I was able to relocate the speakers away from the turntable. It would seem that some engineering could be done to eliminate or minimize the feedback and supplying a longer ground wire would enable users to keep the amp at a distance and still reach it without fabricating a longer one.

    Excellent turntable for the money. Well built and excellent sound. Only thing I might do, in the future, is upgrade to the red cartridge but the stock one is very good.
