My personal turntables of choice are the Stanton ST-150's and for very good reason. They have very high torque motors and they are built like tanks with a pretty solid track record to boot. The folks at the SAE Beat and Breaks Battle also share the same sentiments as the (straight-tonearm counterpart) Stanton STR8-150's will be used as their standard turntable for the National competitions this year.
The Stanton ST-150 and STR8-150 "Super-OEM" turntables have been on the market for almost ten years now. These turntables have super-strong motors, lots of advanced features, and a solid build quality. The one thing these turntables have been missing is a dust cover! Stanton turntable users FINALLY have a dust-cover solution in the form of Decksaver's newest product release. Mixware.net (The US distributor of Decksaver) has sent us a pair of these new covers to put to good use and I'll show you how they look and fit in the full setup.
We've been fans of the Decksaver products since the beginning. For those who aren't familiar with them, the Decksaver is a clear shatter-proof cover that rests snugly over DJ equipment to provide protection and to look good while doing it. These covers always fit perfectly over their intended device and they also stand the test of time. Mixware.net (the US distributor for Decksaver) has announced that the Stanton ST-150/STR8-150 has a protective Decksaver on the way and we'll be sure to get a pair in the lab for our own custom turntables.
Last month at the 2013 Atlantic City DJ Expo at the Trump Taj Mahal we were treated to DJ royalty at the Stanton, KRK, and Cerwin Vega booth (AKA Gibson Pro Audio) with both DJ Premier and Biz Markie showing everyone some turntable and mixing skills we won't soon forget. Premier and Biz appeared at the DJ Expo on separate days, but they both performed at the Gibson Pro Audio booth and we all had a blast. Check out the video performances if you weren't able to make it out in person.
