[Amazon.ca] Fluance RT81 Elite Turntable $283

I have read several reviews on this and most conclude that this is the best starter vinyl turntable on the market. You basically have to pay twice this price to get better performance. I have kicked the tires on this one before and am familiar (and impressed) with it but am holding out for the moment - I have other projects that are higher priorities right now. The plinth is extremely nicely finished, nicely weighted aluminum tonearm, pretty decent AT95E dual moving magnet cartridge, etc. Again, there are better turntables out there but this is probably the best you can get for under $300.

I’d wait on sales from Fluance’s own website; this exact model was $210 back in July. Amazon always seems to list it for more
