Fluance RT85 Reference High Fidelity Turntable Review

Today, I’ll be checking out the RT85 turntable from Canadian upstart Fluance. They have released a barrage of new products over the last few years. Entire ranges of speakers and music systems are now joined by turntables. I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing a few pieces and have been thoroughly impressed by the sound and build quality of their product, especially for the reasonable prices. How will the new Reference Turntable fare?

Mark Levinson No515 Turntable Review

I just had the good fortune to review a system comprising two cutting-edge Mark Levinson products – the No515 turntable and the No585.5 integrated amp. The No515 was fitted with an Ortofon Cadenza Bronze MC cartridge on its 3D-printed, Gimbaled tonearm. The high torque AC motor drives three belts that provide precise speed control. The deck also has excellent isolation properties and a full set of calibration controls.

VPI Prime Turntable

VPI Prime Signature Turntable Review

The VPI Prime Signature turntable sits atop of their Production Line, and is priced at $6,000 without cartridge ($6,800 in Rosewood). Packing many of the features found in their Reference lineup of turntables, the VPI Prime Signature is a stunning piece of audio equipment both in sonics and aesthetics.
