I've never used the Stanton but the Technics are proven reliable and sonically solid TTs.
I recall reading from the Muzik magazine that the reason they put in the Stantons was that they could play 78rpm records. The article also had that same picture of the booth. Every piece of equipment was described.
Stantons - for 78rpm records
Technics - 680's changed on a weekly basis (decks each year)
Urei - built from three wrecks
2016 - often used by djs instead of the Urei
Sony laptop - "capable of running the London subway system"
I think that it was in the other room that Boy George once insisted five mixer changes untill was discovered that his headphones were broken.
So good article, I think that I still have the magazine in my basement.
