Experience unparalleled vinyl music playback with the Fluance Reference High Fidelity Turntable. Meticulously engineered from the ground up with the strictest standards, specifically for the discerning vinyl listener to reproduce audio recordings exactly as the musician intended.

Pure Analog Performance
The Reference turntable continues our mission to deliver a warm, uncompressed listening experience that commands your attention, allowing you to get lost in the music.

Ortofon 2M Red Cartridge for an Open, Dynamic and Warm Sound
Exceptional musical accuracy from the award-winning diamond tipped elliptical 2M Red cartridge that provides an increased output of 5.5mV. Incorporating Ortofon’s split pole pins allowing the moving magnet cartridge to have a flat frequency response for a pure sound without any colouration.

Precision Playback with Motor Isolation and Speed Control
The precision servo-controlled belt drive motor with speed regulating optical sensor, continuously measures and adjusts variances in linear velocity and acceleration within a few hundredths of a percent at a wow and flutter of 0.07%. The decoupling of the drive from the plinth supresses motor vibrations and noise from reaching the stylus. This maintains accurate speed and significantly reduces rumble so your records sound perfect at every play.

Solid Wood Plinth For Superior Resistance to Vibrations
The mass-loaded multi-layered wood chassis inhibits the transfer of unwanted resonance through the system. The 3 rubber, spike-type height-adjustable isolation feet minimize surface contact under the turntable resulting in immunity to environmental vibrations, allowing for greater low frequency signal pickup and improved imaging.

Spectacular Signal Clarity
Caress your records with the balanced S-shaped tonearm for accurate tracking of the record groove with no electronics in the signal path from the stylus tip to the gold-plated RCA outputs for a pure, exceptionally detailed sound.

A Passion for Great Audio
Fluance has successfully revolutionized home audio. Utilizing only superior components and expert audio engineering, the Fluance Record Players are a testament to the performance that can be achieved when a passion for music takes center stage. The perfect complement to any audiophile’s lifestyle, you’ll be enjoying live performances in your home for years to come.
Note: phono preamplifier not included

Premium Features

Stylus 2M Red – A tipped elliptical diamond stylus featuring a split pole assembly that has less magnetic memory, therefore less inclined to try to return to where it was making it faster and cleaner
Ortofon 2M Red Moving Magnet Cartridge - The pre-aligned high-fidelity cartridge features an improved engine providing an increased output of 5.5mV
Gimbal Tonearm – Balanced S-shaped tonearm allowing your stylus to sit perfectly in the record groove for accurate tracking resulting in a more precise playback
Litz Oxygen-Free High-Purity Copper Tonearm Wires –The twisted strand pattern equalizes the proportion of the overall strand length allowing for equal distribution of the current resulting in reduced resistance. Increased conductivity and superior insulation against interference for improved signal clarity.
Tonearm Bearing – High-precision and smooth stainless-steel bearings, featuring specialized lubricant enhances stability during tracking
Anti-skating – Applying a rotational torque to counter centrifugal force applied to the stylus during playback keeping the stylus perfectly centered preventing record and stylus wear while extracting greater musical detail from the record groove
Plinth – Solid mass-loaded multi-layered MDF wood chassis reduces resonance and absorbs vibrations from the motor and listening environment
Isolation Feet- Meticulously engineered 3 –point minimal contact height-adjustable rubber isolation feet to dampen environmental vibrations resulting in higher dynamic range and enhanced imaging
Platter - Highly precise evenly weighted heavy aluminum platter for increased inertia resulting in uniform rotation and ensuring superior isolation from unwanted micro-vibrations
Rubber Platter Mat - Audiophile-grade silicone design to reduce static and further isolate records from unwanted platter micro-vibrations
Isolated Low Noise Motor – Precision motor decoupled from the plinth and positioned away from the platter for reduced rumble transferring to the stylus resulting in less distortion and a cleaner playback
Speed Control – Servo-controlled motor uses comparator circuit to maintain and correct turntable speed 500 times per second
Belt Drive – Highly stable to achieve balanced rotation while isolating motor micro-vibrations allowing the record player’s sound to be cleaner
Auto-Stop - Defeatable auto stop feature helps to prevent unnecessary wear of your stylus
Cue Lever – Easy tonearm operation allowing for the slow and controlled lowering of the stylus preventing stylus and record damage
