    This is my very first turntable. I went with with RT83 model in Bamboo and am very pleased with the Ortofon 2M red as my first phono cartridge. I can't give any comparison as this is my first experience, however this turntable has me hooked. I also like that you can piece by piece upgrade the turntable to match the top model and beyond. Great start to a wonderful hobby.

    Great turntable with great sound! Setup was easy and quick. Would highly recommend.

    Amanda R July 15, 2022 Texas, United States

    Love love love. I was thinking to upgrade my turntable and saw a couple of TikToks about the Fluance brand. After that read reviews and decided to get the RT83. I do not regret it at all! It’s definitely an upgrade from what I had and it wasn’t hard at all to set it up.

    Dan July 1, 2022 New York, United States

    After having self inflicted issue setting up the tonearm I was amazed at the sound coming out of my speakers, clear, warm and dynamic sounds. I’m one happy camper. In closing read the instructions carefully I misread one word and caused myself an anxiety attack

    Don W June 21, 2022 Texas, United States

    So far I love my RT 83. It sounds amazing and it is beautiful. I was going to go with another brand at first but somehow came across Fluance online and after reading reviews decided to go with Fluance instead, I am so glad I did. Amazing quality product.

    Whisenhunt June 15, 2022 Tennessee, United States

    Loved it! Had to hunt to find the cartridge taped under the styrofoam though. It took me a minite to figure out that the balance was done only with the rear weight. The calibration wheel was just used to measure the additional weight

    Andrew P June 11, 2022 Colorado, United States

    I received this turntable as a gift, and while the turntable itself is great, I really want to give kudos to the Fluance customer service team. This item was on pre-order, but the team at Fluance shipped out the turntable earlier than promised in order to help my friends receive this before my birthday. Thanks to the Fluance team!

    Mariah M June 10, 2022 Texas, United States

    What an improvement from my Sony. Love the stylus.

    Bill G. May 21, 2022 Illinois, United States

    Great turntable. I bought the rt83 and I’m glad I did. It’s fairly easy to set up and you can be playing your records in as little as 20 minutes after unboxing.

    Venchit, S May 14, 2022 California, United States

    Very satisfied. Sound quality is very good.

    Jeff a February 24, 2022 Michigan, United States

    This turn table is awesome, everything about this item is top quality! Very cool!

    Jeffrey February 18, 2022 Missouri, United States

    Welcome back to vinyl! Simple and does what it needs to do. I like that the RCA cables are not integrated in the system. I needed to set up a little distant from my amp. I do wish it had auto return but that’s just a first world problem. It sounds great and even tracks on my ancient vinyl.

    WILLIAM February 6, 2022 New York, United States

    Love this turntable, replaced an Audio-technica LP-60.
    Love the Ortofon Red, it is lively and detailed. pushing through vintage Realistic. Gonna get a phono pre-amp to update the electronics.

    Bill C. February 5, 2022 Alabama, United States

    From the moment you open the box you know you are dealing with quality. Set up is easy and everything fits tight and operates smoothly. The sound is phenomenal running directly through my Pure Tube amplifier from Monoprice. It’s everything I expected and more. I look forward to years of listening enjoyment.

    Great turntable, great sound and great looking!
