Summary: I'm no DJ, but when I had the oppurtuniity to buy a HiFi system again after many years of not having one, due to the fact that I had managed to keep my LP colection ( I hid it in my loft away from my first wife), I did not know where to start to look for a turn table. When I was able to buy the items I wanted, I came across this web sit. I looked through the turntables and chose the Stanton ST 150.
Good deck if u realy no u wont spill anything on em!!

Summary: I decided on the st150 as i did my research and found these were the new industry standard now over Technics so i decided on getting em, They are absulute jems But unfortunatly i missed an important part of Technics reviews where they said u can spill drinks on em nd they were still fine but i just asumed yer yer i aint gna let that happen.....
Summary: OK I'm into day 2 with these babies. This has been a great leap of faith after having been an SL1200 bigot for 15 years. As soon as I touched the st150 I felt quality. The powerful motor is certainly impressive. My first gripe is that the tonearm bearings came terribly adjusted - you could SEE the movement on the top bearing. Thanks to internet forums (and not Stanton) I was able to find instructions on how to set the adjusting screws correctly.
Summary: These decks are very high quallty, the only problem is Technics are even higher, with there more accurate motor, reputition, attention to detail and very high quality design and materials, and made in japan. My pal has a pair of st150s and I'd mixed on them for months, then i got technics.
