Fluance’s $450 Turntable Is on Sale for Its Lowest Price Ever
In a rare deal, the Fluance RT84, which is one of the company’s best and most expensive turntables, is $100 off — the normally $450 turntable is selling for $350 on Amazon right now, which is the cheapest it has even been. If you’re looking for a nice turntable and you don’t want to spend more than $500, this is probably the best deal we’ve seen this holiday season.
We’ve lauded the Fluance for some time as it makes some of the best bang-for-your-buck turntables and bookshelf speakers that you can find, but this is actually one of the first times that its RT84 turntable has been discounted. The RT84 has the same aluminum platter as the company’s more affordable turntables, like the RT82 and RT81 (which we often cover), but its big difference is that it comes with a higher-end Ortofon cartridge with an elliptical diamond stylus for more accurate playback.
Like those other turntables, the RT84 does not include a built-in preamp, meaning if you want it to be able to drive your bookshelf speakers you’ll need either an external preamp or to have speakers with a built-in phono preamp.
