Turntablist Video Friday: Stanton 150 Turntables

In my opinion, the greatest analog turntables on the market right now are the Stanton STR8-150 (Straight tonearm) and Stanton ST-150 (S-tonearm) decks. They have super-strong motors, sturdy construction, and a familiar layout that works flawlessly. It seems that the DJ's and teachers at the Scratch Academy also think the same as they use the Stanton 150 decks in their everyday setups. Check out the video inside to see what the Scratch Academy DJ's have to say.
