Fluance introduced Wednesday the RT81+ high fidelity vinyl turntable, with next-generation performance from the popular RT81 model.

The “plus” portion of the new $299.99 Fluance RT81+ comes from some additional amenities, including a built-in Texas Instruments preamp to simplify the setup process while making the addition of a turntable an option for preamps and AV receivers that might lack dedicated pre-amp inputs.

The turntable comes equipped with an Audio Technica VM95E cartridge with a diamond elliptical stylus that can easily be swapped out and replaced with any of the compatible AT-VMN95 upgraded styli.

The cartridge itself ships mounted on the turntable’s removable headshell that allows for easily swapping between different cartridges as desired. Fluance said AT-VMN95E provides a tonal upgrade by delivering 4.0mV output compared to previous offerings.

The unit is also equipped with an upgraded dampened aluminum anti-resonant platter for greater stability. Fluance includes 3mm acrylic mat. This design is intended to create a high-fidelity listening experience.

The turntable is anchored by new height-adjustable three-point rubber conical isolation feet, that minimize surface contact to decrease resonance and present a clearer sound.

“This turntable is designed to stand out and last for decades to come. It incorporates a number of unique features that reflect Fluance’s commitment to superior sound quality, upgradeability, and customer accessibility,” stated Justin Koetsier, Fluance product manager. “In essence, the RT81+ aims to deliver an accessible, yet sophisticated and upgradeable, high-fidelity audio experience, embodying our vision of inclusivity. Even as products become more expensive, we remain focused on enabling customers to start with a base model and build it up into a high-end model over time, as they desire and as their resources allow. This is more than a product; it’s an enduring commitment to our customers’ evolving audio lifestyle.”

The Fluance RT81+ weighs three pounds, and has a cabinet made in part with high mass MDF to reduce vibrations that can bleed into the music.

The Fluance RT81+ turntable is available now in a choise of Piano White, Piano Black, and Natural Walnut.
