Which one is better? The RT80 or the RT81? Or are they the same?

barrytheblade100 says:

have you tried using an external pre-amp? if so did you notice a difference in sound quality?

Alan Elam says:

I currently have an old direct-drive Pioneer PL-518, which I recently got in great working AND cosmetic condition, and it sounds amazing! However, I know the time will come sooner or later, when I either have to pay out the nose to get this nearly 40-year-old vintage TT serviced or simply bite the bullet and break down for a good new direct OR belt-drive TT with a warranty. I have pondered several future options for when that day arrives, including but not limited to a Fluance RT-81. Can anyone here say how the 81 might compare sound-wise with a PL-518, and would it be worth the switch, especially given what it promises to deliver at its price point? Serious answers only, please. Thanks.

Thanks so much for the review. Interested in learning how you hooked up the bookshelf speakers to the player. Can you assist?

Brian Landry says:

I’m glad to see people reviewing this turntable. This one is in my top 2 list. I really like the craftsmanship and the reviews are great.

Good video my man

Vinyl 2CD Rescue says:

Looks nice, but I’m not a fan of turntables with built-in preamps. Audio-Technica has ruined the market on built-in preamps as I own one and wished I could afford a better one. I’ve ripped mine out (AT-LP120) and it has greatly improved the sound. If Fluance made it to totally bypass the preamp when selected then maybe they got it right.

Ricardo Vaz says:

how is the sounding so far? any speeding issues? many people reported having speeding issues.

Kevin MacDonald says:

Are the plinth feet adjustable?

Amanda Joy says:

Hi Phil! This was a really great review and I really liked that it was such a thorough review in such a short amount of time. Thanks for helping me pick out my first turntable!

Nick Sacchetti says:

Hi does the auto stop feature stop the platter and lift the tonearm up automatically when the records done? Or does it stop the platter when u lift the tonearm up manually?

Hi, Phil. Great review. Do you know if I can hook up the RT80 directly to these speakers without a receiver? https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B016P9HJIA?psc=1 The RT80 has a preamp and these are active speakers. I’m pretty sure it will work, but I just want to double check with you before making the purchase. Thank you for your time and keep up the good work.

Thanks for the video, man. Liked/subbed. I’m trying to decide between this and the TEAC TN-300. Are you familiar with it?

Colin Crowther says:

Do you think that the Fluance badge on the front is removable? Is it just a stick-on badge??

Jessica Lee says:

Great video. Are you familiar with the Audio Technica-LP120? I’m trying to decide between the two; wondering if the sound quality for the AT is worth the cost difference!

Dustin Miller says:

Do you still need an audio receiver to use this?
