The highly regarded Stanton brand have a turntable that features the high torque and direct drive motor that all turntablists and club DJs require, and together with the standard S-shaped tone arm with adjustable height, anti-skate and counter weight options, there is little that can’t be done to achieve the perfect vinyl tracking set up. Along with a detachable headshell, Stanton have also provided one of their own 680HP cartridges so you can proceed directly to a mixing session straight out of the box. Also in the box is a stiff Stanton slip mat and L-shaped RCA cables for connecting to your mixer. The old Technics 1200 design featured hard wired RCA audio and power cabling, which were both cumbersome and inconvenient when transporting the deck around. The ST150 allows you to disconnect all of your cabling from their sockets, making both transporting and servicing the deck a lot easier.
Dual start/stop buttons for battle configurations, a tough pitch fader with quartz lock, adjustable start/stop speeds, 33 1/3, 45 and 78RPM, adjustable pitch width and reverse play are among the more standard features found on the ST150. To add to the feature set, Stanton have included a digital output that allows you to plug straight into your computer soundcard using the S/PDIF type connection. The audio to digital conversion gives you 16bits at 44.1kHz, which corresponds to a standard CD quality, and in this digital mode Stanton also offer you the ability to lock the key of the music you are playing whilst altering the speed using the pitch controls, a feature usually associated with CD decks. The ST150 turntable from Stanton is reassuringly weighty, and sitting on solid adjustable feet provides excellent audio reproduction of your vinyl collection. With an outstanding noise to signal ratio and excellent grounding, this turntable will satisfy DJs and audiophiles alike.
