You just inherited a collection of vinyl records or maybe you\u2019ve been collecting them over time. You could buy a cheap record player, but that won\u2019t do the high-quality vinyl records justice. With high fidelity music, you need a high fidelity turntable. The best record players turntables, and some of the best quality, are the Fluance RT81 Turntables.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Fluance RT81\r\nWith a diamond elliptical stylus, belt drive turntable, and Texas Instruments preamp\u2014everything about this record player was built with quality in mind, and well-worth the money.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe secret to Fluance RT81\u2019s performance is the high-performing cartridge. The Audio Technica AT95E cartridge is a diamond elliptical stylus, which exerts 2.0 grams of tracking force. With noise and distortion greatly reduced, all you hear is the high definition sound quality. It also helps that its peramp is manufactured by Texas Instruments, with a ground terminal and gold-plated RCA. This means plugging a pair of speakers in ensures the high quality sound production isn\u2019t lost. A record player like the Crosley CR704D-PA doesn\u2019t hold a candle.\r\nDesign\r\nWhat we loved the most about the Fluance RT81 High Fidelity Vinyl Turntable is its smooth, solid wood finish. It looks great as a centerpiece to an audio entertainment center. It\u2019s simple, yet elegant\u2014like the Audio-Technica AT-LP120XUSB-BK, but with a more beautiful look. To keep the record player free of dust, it comes with a dust cover on a hinge and a slip mat, which covers its aluminum platter. There\u2019s an RCA output in the back, including a pre amp switch for phono and line switch, and auto stop switch.\r\nValue\r\nWith our Fluance RT81 Hi Fi Turntable review coming to a close, let\u2019s talk value. There\u2019s several turntables that are much cheaper than the Fluance RT81, but at the cost of quality. Everything about the RT81\u2014from design to performance\u2014was done with quality in mind. That much is clear. It might be $250, but in our opinion, it\u2019s one of the best options as an entry level vinyl record player. If budget is a concern, the Victrola VTA-600B-ESP is a good alternative, but review Fluance RT81 yourself at a music store, if you can, and you\u2019ll hear why it\u2019s so good.\r\nFluance RT81 Wrap Up\r\nIf you have your $250 ticket, you can be an owner of the Fluance RT81. That\u2019s a decent amount of money, so only audiophiles will be interested. For vinyl records, you need the best, after all. It\u2019s walnut finish looks so good on your entertainment center, and its high fidelity sound quality matches to perfection.
