Stanton ST-100 turntable

Does anyone have any experience / opinions of this turntable?

Im more interested in the sound qualty than anything else as I was considering this turntable for archiving my vinyl.

A pair were installed in the booth at MOS at one time. Were they installed by merit or was there some corporate sponsorship involved?

I would be interested on your thoughts and opinions on this turntable.

I believe that the Stanton's that were installed were STR-150 or the ST-150. I'm shure that MOS got something for putting them in and considering that vinyl usage was probably in decline they didn't care what TTs they had. I've never used the Stanton but the Technics are proven reliable and sonically solid TTs.

I wouldnt touch those straight arm Stanton's espeacely if you use elliptical needles in fact don't use elliptical's with them as they have short under hung straight arms that will cut your records.

There is one on ebay - the ST-100 which is basically the S arm version of the one in the pic above.

Its got an spdif output so would be useful for archiving my vinyl as my sound card has spdif in /out.

TBH, Im now torn between the project debut 3 usb, a sl-1200mk2 w/external preamp or the stanton St-100

No no no no why use the SPDIF out on a turntable of that price, thats a terrible idea. What you have bundled in there some where in the deck is a very cheap and I would guess nasty phono stage and analogue to digital convertor.
What sound card and mixer/phono pre are you using?
Technics now is SO SO SO cheap there is no excuse

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.

If they wanted to play 78s, they could of had the 1200s modified by KAB USA.
