This Stanton T.60X turntable performs admirably. No audible rumble or wow....nice assortment of controls...apparently durable construction. However there is one major flaw. The tone arm is way too short. This turntable should be made available with a choice which would allow purchase with a longer, perhaps the S-curved, tone arm to reduce tracking error. With this short tone arm tracking error is severe and may, in fact, lead to me getting rid of the turntable and looking for something with a longer arm.....unless I can persuade Stanton to sell me a better tone arm to replace this inadequate one. Except for the tone arm this is a fine unit.
A few days ago I replaced a horrid Gemini turntable with the T60X. This table has exceeded my expectations beyond words. Torque is good (especially if you ditch the supplied slipmat and add some wax paper) and it *doesn't skip* when scratching. The target light is an LED. Stanton is doing a great job with many of their products. Cons? I wish they would include a metal 45 RPM adapter and a place to store the target light when detached.
Not really enough torque, but I just use waxpaper underneath the slipmat. Vibrations don't seem to be transferred from the turntable/surface it's sitting on to the platter as much as my STR8-30. Though, it seems really similar to the SRT8-30. I bought a Shure M44G needle, and it sounds nice.
I bought this table with a technics thinking I could get by until I raised the money for another technics and boy did I make a $150 mistake. This table is god awful. It has no motor power or torque what so ever. Its tone arm, buttons, and pitch control are flimsy and cheap. If you are a DJ, or learning to DJ, DO NOT GET THIS! Its a cheap piece of junk. Save up for a technics. I have one. They are great wether you are just starting or have been in the game for a long time.
