Fluance Announces First Turntables, RT80 and RT81

Fluance RT80 Turntable

Flaunce is launching its first line of Hi-Fi turntables through a Kickstarter campaign. The affordably priced, new RT80 and RT81 belt driven turntables are engineered with premium components for vinyl enthusiasts on a budget. Early Kickstarter backers can get a $50 discount.

The RT80 incorporates an AT91 Audio Technica needle that produces rich sounds. Users will rest in the grooves of their favorite vinyl records at a mere 2.0 grams of tracking force. The slightly more advanced RT81 features an AT95E Audio Technica needle. Both included styluses are renowned for their freedom from noise and distortion, clarity on musical peaks and channel balance.

The balanced aluminum S-Type tonearm ensures the needle is rested deep in the record’s groove, producing every audio detail indistinguishable from the original record and creating pristine playback. The fluid movement of the bearings within the tonearm, coupled with its advanced anti-skating system, caresses each record to conserve and protect a user’s beloved vinyl collection.

The RT80 and RT81 are crafted with Fluance’s proprietary audiophile-grade MDF wood cabinet, which incorporates isolation feet and a die-cast aluminum platter. This results in a significant reduction in reverberation, leaving listeners with pure stereophonic sound. The RT80 boasts a lightweight, hollow cabinet design, while the RT81 is built with a fully solid body cabinet to further eliminate vibrations.
