4.0 out of 5 stars A lot of bang for your buck, but has one flaw...
By Rafael on June 8, 2017
I will preface by saying that for the price point you are receiving a lot of bang for your buck. The tonearm is superb, the Audio Technica cartridge is clear and mostly uncolored, the rubber mat is high quality, the base is solid and heavy (this is a really good thing), the built-in preamp is enough to get you started and enjoying your favorite records (although, I do recommend getting an upgraded external phono preamp as your next upgrade), and the turntable just overall looks fantastic. I love it!

However, I did find that the turntable speed is not quite as stable as I would like to see it. I allowed it to "burn-in" for 48 hours running on the 33RPM setting and played a record, halfway through the sound became distorted so I went to check the RPM and found that it was spinning at ~29.8RPM. So I lifted the turntable and adjusted the speed using the trimpots on the bottom, but I just cannot get it to spin at a constant or acceptable mean average of 33.3RPM. I just measured it again as I am posting this review and it fluctuates between ~32.8-33.5RPM. Fluance does provide two trimpots at the bottom of the turntable to adjust the speed but it requires me to unplug everything and move it somewhere high enough for me to adjust, so far I had to do this four times. The speed discrepancy does not bother my wife, but I can tell clearly when listening to piano or orchestral pieces that the pitch and speed of the notes is fluctuating so it becomes a small distraction during focused listening sessions. I will say that I am using an iOS application to measure RPM and do not have another turntable around to test it's accuracy, but from other online reviews I saw this seems to be an issue that is not isolated to me.

After saying that, would I recommend this turntable? Absolutely. I checked the competition and did not find the same amount of value I found with this. From the cartridge, build materials, helpful Youtube tutorials (check out their channel), and aesthetics I don't think you will find a better bang for your buck for the $200-$300 price range. While the RPM issue is distracting when listening to delicate pieces you do not notice it as much when listening to more modern "louder" records.

PROs:
- Looks great
- Built solid
- Quality tonearm and cartridge
- Good sounding preamp

CONs:
- Rotation speed not as accurate as I would like it to be
- The adjustment for the RPM is located on the bottom and is hard to reach

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful-looking, and beautiful-sounding
Reviewed in Canada on January 20, 2018
This is my first record turntable since my family owned one when I was a kid. I'm quite impressed so far, the audio quality I'm getting out of my Edifier R1280T speakers is excellent from this turntable. Setup was easy, even for someone with no experience. There is step-by-step instructions included on how to set the tracking force and anti-skating. The stylus and cartridge come pre-assembled so you just need to pop it on the end of the tone arm. Every little aspect of the design seems well thought-out and functional. The cue-lever works nicely and gently lowers and raises the needle from the record. The hinges on the dust cover have just the right tension and detents so it's easy to swing upward and trust that the hinges will catch it and prevent it from falling back down. This may seem like a dumb detail, but I've seen plenty of lids and covers that fail because of poorly designed hinges.

I'm not a turntable expert, nor a hardcore audiophile, but I'm quite impressed with the audio quality coming from this turntable using the built-in preamp and a pair of reasonably priced, powered speakers. I am someone who, if the audio quality isn't good, I don't even want to listen to it. If you have a more finely-tuned ear for this sort of thing, I suspect you'd be satisfied with this turntable, but there is still the option to upgrade the cartridge/stylus in the future, as well as use an external preamp if you choose.

Additionally, it's a gorgeous device, with its high gloss walnut exterior, matte black components, and tinted dust cover.

Overall I'd say it's a very easy to use, but high quality turntable. I don't have any complaints really, it's just a sweet machine.
