Stanton has just announced two new turntables, the ST.150 M2 and STR8.150 M2. They have been redesigned from the ground up, and feature a new, heavy-duty aluminium housing that makes them much lighter than their predecessors. Stanton also updated the face of the turntables by moving the controls around to make the decks look and seem less cluttered.
The only difference between the two models is the straight tone arm found on the STR8.150 M2 over the more conventional ‘S-shape’ version found on the ST8.150 M2. This is good news for turntablists, who usually favour a straight tone-arm for superior tracking ability during routines - that means less chances of your needle skipping in the middle of a scratch.
Some additional features on the new turntables include the removable target light, 33, 45 and 78 RPM platter speeds and adjustable pitch ranges of 8, 25 and 50%. A full version of Deckadance DVS comes included also.
