    Really good looking, great performing turntable. That said, I don't have a large, high-quality receiver, nor do I have a surround sound setup. I'm operating, at the moment, on two mid-tier bookshelf speakers. The turntable looks excellent, the setup was relatively straightforward, and the playback is superb. Very, very little flutter or wow experienced so far.

    I could not be happier for the price paid. This is a very high-quality belt-drive turntable that really delivers on aesthetics and performance. After having used various other belt-drives and direct-drives, I'm happy to have this as my end-game.

    This turn table is fantastic! Both in looks and sound and it is a very good price.

    James P June 8, 2021 Arizona, United States

    I love the turntable but the cartridge is awful. I've played it around 40 hours so far and the cartridge sounds like something from one of those old 60s record players we had at school. I guess I'll have to try and find a good Sumiko cartridge for it.

    Joseph M H II June 7, 2021 Pennsylvania, United States

    Very nice and Well Built Turntable. Easy assembly I placed a record on the platter and was Blown away. I encorage anyone who wants a nice investment to buy one of these units YOU WONT BE DISSAPOINTED

    Patrick D. June 3, 2021 Quebec, Canada

    Frank C. June 2, 2021 Ontario, Canada

    Collecting Vinyl Since 1980. My Dual finally Gave it up. Bought the rt82. Great Player great sound. The Dual had a soft Vintage Sound but this player Brings out way more detail. Great High end

    Antonio M May 11, 2021 Tennessee, United States

    I love the user experience and really clean turntable

    Bill May 11, 2021 Oregon, United States

    Beautiful piece of audio equipment. Performance meets all the requirements I have, and at a lower cost than the competition.

    Oliver H May 11, 2021 Georgia, United States

    Very safely packed, easy to put together. The gloves and bubble level were a nice touch and the 3 x feet design makes it really easy to get it level too.
    I considered quite a few turntables at this price and the Fluance came out as best value for money and also gives me some upgrade options if I feel the need.

    Larry April 20, 2021 Nova Scotia, Canada

    All the good reviews were dead on. I am extremely pleased with my new RT-82 turntable. It looks great and sounds even better. My only complaint is with the packaging. Although everything was intact, plastic, styrofoam and tape is not a good mixture. Product is highly recommended. Cheers

    Andrew W April 13, 2021 Washington, United States

    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.

    Daniel S April 3, 2021 Massachusetts, United States

    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.

    Hal P April 3, 2021 Washington, United States

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

    Gary E April 2, 2021 Illinois, United States

    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.

    Daniel S April 2, 2021 Indiana, United States

    This is my first turntable I have personally owned and it has been nothing short of astounding.
