    Default Buying used Stanton turntables

    My options are the stanton t.90 and the stanton str8-100. the price for a pair of them is between 350-400. What do you think? Who are better? If anyone has expirience with them please share it with me so i can choose.
    thanks guys

    Are you just starting out with DJing? I would go for Numark TT200's as a starter deck - they are cheaper, and are the best value you'll get on a beginner TT.

    The 100s are better than the 90s. Thats still too much money for a pair of used 100s though.

    You can probably get a pair of used st-150s for 500 a pair if you're lucky

    Id go with the str8-100's bruv. Id pay no more than 300 used depending on if and what kind of needles come with them.

    I would never recommend buying used numarks.

    Hi Buddy,

    Judging by your username i take it you are in the UK....

    you should seriously have a look at a 2nd hand pair or Technics 1200s or 1210s, u can pick up a pair of MK2s for around 400-500 IF you shop around well.

    you wont ever regret them either!

    500 is way too much to pay for Mk2s. You can get a pair for 300 to 400 tops.

    I have been watching techs closely on ebay / gumtree, and 350-400 will get you a decent pair without carts or with some wear and tear. The mint condition ones that come with all the bells and whistles seem to sell for 500. I know this is a little off topic, but my dad loves his Vinyl, but doesn't have a record player to play them on. If I got a a 1210/1200 Mk 2, would It be good enough quality for him to listen to his vinyl? Or am I better off getting a cheaper one not designed for DJing. Obviously if I got him a 1210 then I would use it as well. Also, are they likely to last another 10-20 years?

    Sorry to hijack the thread
