More About The Award-Winning Gear:
Designed from the ground up for high-precision software control, the SC System. 1 is Stanton’s most advanced digital control system for DJs. It offers unparalleled price/performance, yet is easy to understand and intuitive for newer DJs looking for a system that they won’t outgrow. For the professional user, dedicated presets allow the best possible support of the latest applications with Stanton’s DaRouter application -- which means the SCS deck and mix/controller stay current with the latest releases of mainstream DJ applications. The system is comprised of the SCS.1m mix controller and the SCS.1d deck.
In creating the STR8.150, Stanton went back to basics and re-engineered everything. This "no nonsense" turntable has everything professional DJs need, and nothing they don't. The STR8.150’s durable construction is designed to minimize feedback with its industry-leading high torque motor - up to 4.5 Kgf-cm, and an ultra-stable platter and tone arm. And with features like Key Correction, Reverse, up to 50% pitch adjustment, and S/PDIF digital outputs - the STR8.150 is a strong contender for the title of ‘Turntable Supreme’.
Stanton’s M.207 is an innovative, affordable and reliably rugged 2-channel mixer with loads of features making it perfect for the DJ looking to enhance their performance abilities. The M.207’s unique user interface for controlling effects, the FXGlide, is a continuous strip touch controller utilizing the same innovative touch-slider technology that is used in Stanton's award-winning SCS.3d MIDI controller. In addition to providing real-time performance capabilities, the FX control can also be automated in real-time. This allows the DJ to create a custom modulation of the FX parameter, and then have that play back instead of the normal sweeping FX.
The SMX.311 is Stanton's latest addition into the top selling SMX line of products created to provide an affordable line of mixer solutions to meet various DJ/audio applications. The SMX.311 is a 10-inch mixer w/ 3-band EQ per 3 channels, which allows up to 3 Phono/Line signals to be connected at once, along with a microphone on a separate channel. Equipped with versatile cueing and extended connectivity, the SMX.311 is a great mixer for both the beginner and professional DJ.
The RM.416 is a perfect rack mount mixer for the most demanding mobile or club DJ with a host of features packed into a 4-space rack unit with rugged metal inner chassis. The RM.416 offers a vast array of traditional connectivity, as well as a bidirectional USB port for playing music from your favorite DJ application and recording your mix in real time, plus a subwoofer output with built-in crossover control to adjust the output to perfectly match your sound system.
The T.92 USB is a direct-drive professional turntable with built-in USB connectivity. The USB port and supplied software make it easier than ever to transfer vinyl recordings to digital form. With features such as key lock and a pitch range of ±%12, the T.92 USB effortlessly fits in with a regular DJ setup.
The 680.V3 is the latest generation of Stanton's popular 4-coil standard-mount stereo cartridge line for club DJs. It boasts the renowned Stanton ruggedness, balanced with total musical responsiveness. The elliptical stylus is guaranteed to extract the subtle details in your vinyl, while the 4-coil moving iron pickup translates it into clean and accurate output.
