Stanton brand was founded in 1946 by Walter Stanton (in 2011 it was taken over by Gibson Guitars). The company has long been famous for its magnetic cartridges and styluses for gramophones, and today it’s a manufacturer of professional audio equipment producing turntables, controllers, and mixers that are designed for DJing.

Turntables are among their most popular devices. One of the most optimal budget variants is the T line: T.52, T.55B, T62. T.52 was supplied together with the mounted Stanton 500.v cartridge. The device supports both 33.3 and 45 rpm (rotational speed). It has soft start/stop buttons and pitch slider. Later T.55B was released – it had the same speed and came together with the same cartridge - 500.v3. It differed only in the added RCA and USB outputs. T.62 completed the series and included the same parameters, but acquired an improved torque, and a tone arm with excellent tracking.

Stanton’s most outstanding turntables are ST-150 and STR8.150 models which have their tone arms shaped differently (the first unit has a curved one, the second – straight one). Their surface is made of steel, and the lower part is crafted with the use of a heavy rubber material. Each can play vinyl at 33, 45, and even 78 rpm, both have reverse buttons and a custom pitch (8, 25, 50%). To top it off, they come with the Stanton 680.V3 cartridge.

In the history of Stanton company captured not only first-class turntables but also highly professional controllers. Stanton SCS.4DJ is one of them. On its surface there are 2 decks with Scratch buttons per each, ancillary one in the center, and also a display. A small color screen displays the library, BPM, albums, artists and many others. The common interface retains the classic appearance of all controllers: a mixer, a 3-band equalizer, CUE buttons and faders with pitch control. The controller supports all necessary formats: MP3, AAC, WAV, AIFF and even MP4. Stanton DJC.4 also hit the row of professional devices which came with Virtual DJ LE software. It’s a 2-channel, 4-deck virtual DJ controller featuring many buttons and knobs which are responsible for creating effects generally.

The company colaborted with the Dutch brand N2IT - together they developed Final Scracth. The instrument served to manipulate and play samples with traditional vinyl or turntables. The manufacturer cooperated with Native Instruments - they worked together to create software, and as a result we got Traktor Final Scratch.

Stanton manufacturer is one of the most high-profile brands of the 20th and 21st centuries which for many years has been successfully manifesting its good deed both in the development of cartridges/styluses and in DJ equipment.
