    My dad is getting along in age and enjoys listening to his old records. This is overkill for that but he enjoys the sound again, so it perfect for what it does. You have to set it up but once done it works great, feels solid and durable. Highly recommend it if you have a need to listen to music on vinyl. Worth more than I paid in my opinion, seeing my dad enjoying his music again.

    Feedback is a big problem that I can't resolve. Have to play my records at a very low volume and have the bass set way below flat. My old turntable did not have this issue at all, so I had to hook my old back up and buy a new cartridge. Should have tried to return it sooner (bought in 04-21) but was trying all sorts of things to eliminate the feedback.
    Now I am stuck with it because I waited too long.

    I was really afraid to drop this much money on replacing my old hitachi direct drive turntable, but I'm pleasantly surprised. I really love the RT83, looking at it makes me smile because of how beautiful and well crafted it is. I don't here any motor rumble or anything like that, and not having to mess with the speed is great. The included cable is high quality as well.

    I'm probably the least techie person there is but even I found it easy to put everything together & make it operational. And I could not be happier with the end result. Highly recommended.

    Your browser does not support HTML5 video.  This Fluance sounds fantastic! I literally close my eyes and feel transported into the boothe where the music was made and cut! Having listened to streamed music for the last decade, i'm only realizing how much richness, depth and clarity i have been missing out on! Set up took me sometime only because I was afraid of messing it up but it was straight forward and successful on first trial. My powered AMP is not even that great but makes the music sound exquisite. That will be my next upgrade. I love my RT83W!!!!!

    I am not an audiophile, more of an enthusiast. Assembly and installment was relatively easy, the instructions were very straight forward. When I put on the first album, the sound quality absolutely blew me away. I LOVE my new Fluance turntable!

    This player sounds fantastic! I am hearing nuances from my albums that I have not heard before and the clarity is phenomenal. It pairs well with my Denon receiver through the phono input and Klipsch speakers. Also love listening through headphones as well.

    The set-up was easy (highly recommend watching the videos on YouTube in addition to using the manual.) Had a small issue with the hinges creaking when opening the lid, but contacted customer service and they sent me new hinges immediately! Really responsive and the problem is solved!

    Added bonus, it looks really nice in our family room and my wife said yesterday, “I am really liking having this here. I love listening to albums way more than I thought I would.” It has been like rediscovering music. I should mention that I am a musician by trade and my entire work life has been in the music industry, so to say “rediscovering musicl is not just some catchy phrase. It really is like something new after years in music.

    This turntable was every bit as good as all the reviews I've read and watched on youtube. And that's high praise indeed. The setup was flawless and the sound is marvellous. I highly recommend it! The only improvement for me would have been if the signal cable was just a little bit longer ... it does reach in my setup, but just.
