    First on this part shipping may very but I am only 3 hour drive from the shipping center in New York. Ordered the system on a Tuesday, had two boxes, the speakers and turntable at the house by Thursday. No preamp weight or brush, but you know how shipping is, waited a couple of days, nothing, UPS status was not encouraging. Looks like the package was loss, this was a UPS problem not a Fluance problem. So I called Fluance Customer Experience and talked to a nice women called Julie, she opened the missing package ticket with UPS, and kept me informed during the whole process. Julie is what customer service is about. Any ways, I had the missing pieces in about a week. So on to the product review.

    One more item, this is a secondary system for me, for my home den, which is a small 9 foot by 11 foot room. My primary system also has the Ortofon 2m blue.

    RT85 - This is a solid built turntable, this turntable is the reason I went with Fluance. Knowing the price of the Ortofon 2m Blue, I don’t know how they make a turntable of this quality at this price point, mind blow. Although and I know this may be hard to believe, buy in my 50 years of buying audio equipment, this is the first belt drive turntable I have ever owned, all the others have been direct drive, I can not believe how quiet it is. This is a solid built turntable for sure.

    PA10 I was going back and forth on if I wanted this Pre-amp or another brand, but I figured I was already getting there speakers lets go the whole route. I am happy with the pre-amp, sounds great, no hiss, does what it is suppose to due, if it only came in bamboo to match the rest lol.

    AI61 With this one I was wondering if I wanted this pair, or the AI81’s, glad I went with the AI61’s plenty loud for the room I am in. BUT they do need the 20 hour break in period for the bass they were not laying about this. The Bluetooth sound is weaker compared with what you get off the turntable, but I guess that is compressed vs analog. I do wish they had just a tad more bottom end, but hey for the price, I think you would be hard to find anything sound better in this price point. I do think I am either going to add an EQ or a Sub Woofer or both. Also an external DAC to stream some High Res files audio files to them. If this was my main system, I might of gone passive speakers, but then that is added cost, and takes space I don’t have.

    great sound! quality built turntable / speaker system ! glad i made these purchased!

    Cassandra C. December 27, 2022 Virginia, United States

    Very happy with this purchase!

    Jim P December 20, 2022 South Carolina, United States

    Very simple and easy to understand instructions. Very nice setup! I’m old school and still like fully automatic turntables but the 85 is a great turn table. Great sound!

    Josie N December 11, 2022 Nebraska, United States

    Amazing turntable, speakers, and preamp. I am thrilled with this purchase. The only reason I’m knocking off a star is because the light on the active speaker doesn’t work (and yes, we tried pressing the light button on the remote to get it to turn on). This does make it difficult to know what setting the speaker is in and even if it’s on or not. Otherwise, everything works well.

    Mike D. December 7, 2022 Pennsylvania, United States

    This is my first quality turntable and speakers. I went with the RT85 with the Ai61 speakers. The sound blew me away! Setup was easy with the videos from Fluance. The quality is outstanding and I am totally pleased with all aspects of my purchase. I am glad I went with the better model rather than settling. All the upgrades that come with the RT85 seem to me to be worth the price. I am completely loving hearing my vinyl in a whole new way with musical ranges I have never heard before from my old system.

    Greg H December 6, 2022 North Carolina, United States

    I am enjoying my turntable very much. Directions for setting up were easy to follow. Great sound and looks fantastic.

    James B October 27, 2022 Ontario, Canada

    The RT85 is a great turntable. When it is packaged with the PA10 preamp and AI61 bookshelf speakers, it is an amazing deal. My vinyl sounds amazing and the gloss walnut finish is striking. I have seen some complaints about the finish and the dust cover but, if you are careful, they both hold up very well.

    Oscar July 20, 2022 California, United States

    This is my first turntable. Setup was pretty easy (a slight hiccup balancing the tonearm until I realized I had not properly secured it) , be it using the instruction manual or the YouTube video (recommend checking both out). The performance is awesome, loving my experience so far.

    David L December 31, 2021 Michigan, United States

    Simple setup. Great quality materials. Very solid unit. Excellent sound. Could not be happier. A+++

    Kenan V December 21, 2021 Florida, United States

    After a long search I decided to go with Fluance, and got the whole system. Turntable, speakers and amplifier, and I haven't regret it. It looks and sounds amazing.

    Dwight, M November 20, 2021 Oregon, United States

    INCREDIBLE quality!!! The sounds from 50 year old LP's blew me away~~~

    Patrick mcd October 2, 2021 other

    TNT September 9, 2021 California, United States

    I really enjoy this system so far... The sound is great.. no complaints.. definitely worth the price . And fairly easy to put together... There were you tube videos to help with balancing... That made it alright!!!
