    I have been reviewing many different types of turntable for the past several months in order to get into the world of vinyl and continually came back to Fluance products. All the reviews I read and watched on you tube spoke of it’s high quality and affordable price point for the beginner like myself to the seasons listener. This turntable will get you into vinyl with many years of listening without having to worry about trading up. The website is very user friendly and you can compare their products to find the best turntable for you. I purchased the RT 84 turntable as well as the signature series HiFi two-way bookshelf surround sound speakers. Both are truly amazing in sound and in appearance. The sound quality is comparable to my Bose system. I decided to call a representative from Fluance to ask a few question and to place my order and she was very professional and took the time to answer my questions with no up sales. Overall I am very happy with my decision to purchase Fluance products and will return to purchase more of their products.

    I started out with an AT LP120 USB. It was a great initial turntable for me, allowing me to upgrade the stylus and preamp while learning more about record players and vinyl.
    I began looking into other ways to upgrade, but finally decided to sell my LP 120 and get a new turntable. I did a fair amount of research on the U-Turn Orbit, Rega Planar Series, and Pro-Ject Debut Carbon. I decided to go with Fluance RT84 because of all the great reviews that I saw and read. It was very hard for me to even find anything really negative.
    Features of the RT84 that I like:
    2M Blue stylus! No discernible motor noise compared to the LP120, Very stable, Adjustable feet to balance plinth, Anti-skate works! Auto stop
    Things I don't necessary like:
    Can't adjust the VTA, Dust cover is scratched- not sure from what but if it was me, it scratched very easily because I've been really careful with it.
    Overall, this thing is a great value- feels sturdy, sounds nice, looks awesome. Wish I just invested in a Fluance right off the bat.

    Looks great sounds wonderful!

    Charlie C. February 8, 2020 New Hampshire, United States

    I absolutely love this turntable! The ortofon blue cartridge is a clear improvement over the ortofon red (also very good). Product is easy to set up. Bought the 84 without acrylic platter. Hard to believe there is a significant improvement.

    Jeremy G February 7, 2020 Nebraska, United States

    Everything I wanted in a turntable! I replaced a Dual 701/Ortofon Super OM 10 with this and couldn't be more pleased. It is beautiful, easy to set up, and soundstage and clarity are vastly improved.

    Griffin H February 7, 2020 North Carolina, United States

    Love this turntable! Solid design all the way around. Excellent sound for this price range!

    Dave Q February 3, 2020 Illinois, United States

    I was looking for a turntable upgrade and decided on the RT84. I was looking for a turntable with a detatchable headshell and height adjustable feet. The Ortofon Blue cartridge is a plus and the high quality wood veneer finish looks great. As for the sound, well, I think this turntable sounds fantastic. Quiet with a deep, wide soundstage. I definitely do not regret this purchase. I will eventually upgrade to the acrylic platter. Caught this on sale for $382.00 USD, but even at full retail, it's a steal. Highly recommended!

    Neil B. February 1, 2020 California, United States

    We recently decided to get our opera records out of storage and set up a sound system based on a Sonos Amp. We chose the Fluance RT84 because it offered a phenomenal value in design, finish and Ortofon 2 M Blue cartridge. Our records sound glorious! Also, Fluance’s technical support was very responsive

    Steve C January 29, 2020 Nova Scotia, Canada

    This R 84T was an amazing Christmas gift from my loving wife and family,now I just can’t stop playing vinyl. Would now love to try the acrylic platter to see if it makes this turntables sound even better.

    David H January 16, 2020 Illinois, United States

    Upgraded from a vintage turntable with an older model Ortofon cartridge. The old one served me well for many years but the sound of the RT-84 with the Blue is simply stunning. I listen to a lot of jazz and the great singer-songwriters. Sounds like James Taylor or Cannonball Adderley is in my living room. Sound is crystal clear. Every nuance is right there in a wonderful sound stage.

    Matt Y November 27, 2019 California, United States

    The Blue cartridge and stylus sound very crisp, clear and open. Solid build. Beautiful wood finish. Good value for the money.

    HENRY CLARK November 13, 2019 Indiana, United States

    well ive owned this for awhile now so i gotta tell you!it only gets better.the only thing is no auto return/play but i knew that when i ordered it.it is simply an awesome tables!no weird noises just plays its butt off!i highly recomend it!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ronnie N September 25, 2019 British Columbia, Canada

    A am very happy with this turntable ... from its beautiful look to the warm sound. the blue ortofon cartridge gives. The only minor flaw that I see is that the tone arm takes too long to lift at the end of the record. I hope that the stylus isn't being damaged. I still give it 5 stars anyway.

    Matt P September 18, 2019 Texas, United States

    Easy set up, beautiful finish and high quality components. Unbeatable value, what’s not to like

    Walter M. September 14, 2019 Texas, United States

    I purchased an RT85 after they finally came back in stock. It had a very noisy back foot. Any movement of the turntable caused this foot to make an annoying creaking sound. I returned it under the 30 day refund policy. I then purchased a RT84 and it has the same defective noisy back foot. Since the RT84 has the lighter aluminum platter rather than the heavy acrylic platter, the back foot is not as noisy. After posting my experience on Fluance Turntable Facebook page, I learned other owners have experienced the same issue with their reference model turntables. This is obviously a design flaw that Fluance needs to address. Aside from the foot issue, the turntable sounds great. I upgraded from an RT81 and with the Ortofon Blue cartridge, the difference in sound is like night and day. After one week of owning the RT84, I have no plans to return it.
