    Great turntable for the money. Good quality and a very thoughtful build. Couldn’t be happier. Thank you Fluance.

    I bought my first "stereo" in the 1970s. I didn't have the money to buy anything worthwhile. I always heard pops and static. I thought that was the way LPs sounded after many uses. In the 1980s I bought CDs and thought this was the way of the future. So clean but missing the top and bottom end.

    I decided to come back to vinyl and did a fair amount of research on turntables and listen to what users where saying for this price point. All seem to point to Fluance. As someone who is not prepared to invest into a hobby that can be expensive, I was hesitant to purchase a good turntable.

    The reviews were spot on! My old LPs are playable. I thought they were ruined. With proper cleaning, I have been able to enjoy music as it were the first time. I will upgrade to the next the Frosted Acrylic Platter soon.

    My soul has never been happier.

    Product came very well packaged with a very well-written manual to get things set up. Had a bit of trouble balancing the tone arm but it was operator error due to inexperience. Video's on youtube helped out. Love the new piano white color and the sound is fantastic. I'm all about getting value for my money, and Fluance tables are impossible to beat for the money!

    Awesome turntable that is budget friendly but is a high end piece of equipment.

    All was great, but anti-scaring would not set.

    Brent from customer service quickly, and competently resolve my issue. One of my best customer service experiences ever.

    I waited and waited to finally spring for a new high end record player. I love the sound quality that comes out of this unit. The Ortofon 2M Red cartridge is superior sound quality.

    The quality of workmanship and materials is outstanding. Fluance’s video instructions are wonderful and made the set-up a breeze. Cannot recommend their products strongly enough!

    I’ve owned many turntables including Oracle, MMC, Denon—this is unexpectedly fine for the price. Not my first choice for a beginner’s turntable, but perfect for an audiophile on a budget.

    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.
