Buying Your First Turntable? Some of the Best Starter Turntables Are on Sale


September 11, 2019 Deals By

Fluance is a Canadian audio company that makes some of the best entry-level turntables and bookshelf speakers you can buy. And right now through September 16, you can get a great deal on its entry-level turntables if you shop on Amazon. The Fluance RT81 ($250 $210), which is most review publications’ pick for “best entry-level turntable,” and the Fluance RT80 ($200 $170) are both on sale. The main difference between the two is that the RT81 has a solid wood plinth, as opposed to the RT80’s hollow one, so it’s better at preventing vibrations. The two turntables have a built-in preamp that you can turn on or off, enabling you to buy upgraded external pre-amp further down the road if you so decide.

Additionally, the Fluance Ai40 ($250 $210) powered bookshelf speakers are also on sale, but only in black.
