    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.

    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.

    Excellent value for the money. Quality item. My only issue was the ability to change out the cartridge. Don't get me wrong the 2m Red is a very good cartridge, but I also have a few AT that I would have liked to use to compare the sound. Those are not compatible with the RT 83.

    I really love my RT83 turntable. It's built solid, easy to assemble and love the adjustable legs that reduce vibrations and helps to make the player level.

    I up graded from a standard $100.00 Sony record player to the RT83 and wow what difference in quality, and much more important the quality of sound.
