I was looking for a new turntable after the motor in my old one had died. My requirements are for a turntable to connect to my computer to digitize my record collection, and some occasional light DJ work. I already have a mixer for the line output and the cartridge from the old table, so the T.50X was the economical choice for me. Setup out of the box took a matter of minutes, including balancing the tone arm. I've been very impressed with the overall performance of the T.50X. I was skeptical at first about the straight (and short) tone arm, but I have not detected any problems at all with tracking or channel separation due the angle of the stylus at the outer and inner tracks of any LP. The start up and stop times are just as advertised; less than one second for both. Speed adjustment is smooth and stable. The only features missing from this entry-level unit are a USB and/or line level output (available on other models), but a simple mixer with a phono input or a preamp will provide the necessary signal level to connect to a computer. Stanton has built a piece of equipment that will please both the beginning DJ and impress the seasoned pro.
I started out with this turntable and i started scratchin on it and i was amazed. Ive only had it for about 7months but beleive me i scratch for hours everyday and nothing has gone wrong with it. A few tracking errors at first but once you get used to it You will LOVE IT
the t.50 is worth the money. it's a pefect unit for those that just wanna listen to an album, or if youre looking to do some sampling into the akai or pc. if youre getting into djing, it's not a bad place to start. the belt works good and can hold pitch nicely. i have dj'd long mixes with it. it will even let you take it for a sratch or two. it's plastic, it's cool looking.. the rca cables, ground wire and target light are easy to get at, and replaceable.. which is a wicked hot feature. the straight arm is dope and def helps for sratching applications.. if youre a loft dj and you play rare dico-edits with no real beat-matching... just track to track.. this things really all you need. if youre looking to do super fast, aggressive scratching... you better save for at least a numark tt200.. or of course an SL1200. i rock two of these with a really high end mixer... it's really all you need. if you know how to dj, and understand how to deliver music... cant go wrong.
On your reciever you must have a phono output to be able to use this turntable. If you dont which most new recievers dont have you need a pre-amp to convert it to a phono line. This is kinda a pain.....
The Stanton T.50 turntable is a nice straight arm turntable. I've learned the basics of scratching on this turntable, but for the most part i just use it for sampling from records alongside my sampler. It has all the basics that a turntable needs. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a turntable built like a tank. I've had it for about a year, and dont believe the hype about belt drive turntables not being up to par. I've dropped this, scratched on it, and sample with it every other day. It's great.
