Just bought 2 of these to replace my 12yrs old Technics 1200 MK2's and I'm sorry to say that these turntables really put the 1200's to shame, so it would seem like the old industry-standard turntable is a bust and it's a bout-time too.. with the strongest torque motor (these things stop & start on a dime) along with reverse, with 8% 25% and up too 50% Pitch, you won't EVER loose a beat ...try getting those features on a 1200, you won't, as the 1200's aren't even made anymore... and don't believe the hype about a Srt8-tone-arm not having good sound quality over a s-shape, this simply isn't the case at all, both ship right outta the box with the Stanton 680.v3 cartridge and it's factory angled & portioned on the head-shell for best sound quality......Thanks Stanton :)
I took 5 years off DJing, after selling my old sl1210s, my poineer mixer.. I started shopping, after reading reviews on these tables in DJ gear forums, I found and purchased these on Guitarcenter.com. The motor unit and pitch control on these are amazing.. The pitch range is so easy to adjust on the fly, and the str8 really gives to a ton of room to work on your records. They scratch really well right out the box..
This is the best turntable on the market right now, hands down. The STR8-150 has features that you can't get on a 1200, and it is built like a tank. I suspect this table will last forever if properly maintained. A best buy for anyone seeking a quaility industry standard turntable.
I have been a dj for about 14 years and most of that time I thought I would never see anything that can beat the 1200. There has been other tables that were faster or have had more features than the 12 but none locked on or felt as nice when used until now. Stanton really did it!!!
The speed and power of the motor on these turntables is second to none. The accuracy of the pitch slider is unbeaten by even technics and vestax. Both of their sliders seem flimsy in comparrison to that of the Stanton. Everything about this turntable feels solid. Having used the industry standard Technics 1210 for years and given it's long standing top spot in the market for so long it amazes me that Technics couldn't come up with a turntable with the accuracy of this one. The Mk5 is only an attempt to catch up in my opinion but it hasn't.
I'm a beginning DJ'er, and these are the first that I've had. I have two and absolutely love them. They do everything I need them to do, and if I were to upgrade, it would be to CD tables because those seem to be the only next best thing. I haven't used a set of tables that I like better.
