Good turntable. Not as heavy or well built as a Technics or Numark. Feels kinda cheap and is made of all plastic. Upside is it's light to carry and can be tucked under arm and portable. Not suitable for scratching, motor is too weak. But is much better than a belt drive.Excellent for just listening/previewing records or to sample from. The s/pdif digital output is a huge plus!! I use it to connect to MPC digital in for sampling. This frees up my 2 analog inputs to connect some mics or a keyboard, module or something else without unpluging/repluging turntable etc. A lot of turntables have only phono out, line level, and some usb out, or have to be routed through a mixer.If you're looking to not spend a lot, like for an 'outdated' Technics (but still the original classic), or a Numark with unwanted features, this table does the job very well for a decent price. Looks great (stylish) too. Comes with a dust cover, slipmat, Stanton cartride and stylus. Everything needed to start using right out the box, unlike some other tables. Recommended, but not for scratching.

Bought one of these about a year ago just to listen to records on, not to scratch, and the motor is already dying. To start it, I have to manually spin the table, and the sound oscillates because the motor spins out of time. Just save and buy some Technics.

not bad

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

this turntable has a good enough amount of torque to do some serious scratchin but if your willing to buy this just save a couple of bucks more for the t90s they have a little more features but worth it. this table is great for beginners and still meets expectations of some veteran djs. stanton could be at the top of the turntable industry only if the quality of the housing and platter were much more decent.

Good Beginner's Turntable

By The Title's Taken

from Troy, NY

I was amazed at this turntable. I am a turntablist and although I just started, I would say that this thing is pretty good for a beginner. I was shopping around a lot before choosing this. I didn't try the TT200 but there are a few things that make the T.80 truly awesome. First of all, it has line outputs. No need for a phono preamp here. Secondly, it is a decent scratch turntable. It needs a little more torque but you will definitely develop important skills with this thing like having a light hand and learning how not to skip the record constantly. After several months, I have found that the torque could use some help and I have noticed the platter and motor don't seem to feel as incredible as they could be. Also, looking at more expensive turntables with the exception of Technics, such as the T.120, PDX-2000, and Gemini TT-04, this only has 12% pitch adjustment. It's fine but since DJ-ing and turntablism is getting crazier and crazier, you need to have insane amounts of pitch adjustment. Anyways, to start, get this. You will want a more powerful and versatile turntable later but if you are doing it for fun or you just doing mixing, you'd probably be able to get away with the great value you get in this turntable. The value is increased from the cartridge you get, which just like the turntable, is a good cartridge and all but to be pro or take it seriously, you need an upgrade. FYI, the Shure M44G is amazing for an all around inexpensive pro cartridge. You could also switch the cartridge with the M44-7 stylus in order to get a real good scratch cartridge.

great turntable

By Grant-_TS93

from Portland OR

I absolutely love this thing! Dj's and elitists like to dog on Stanton turntables sometimes but this one is a great value and has very usable features. I mainly use mine for sampling and recording scratches into the mix and it does a great job. The key lock feature is very nice. I will admit though, I worry about the legs breaking being that most of the thing is built of plastic. The 500B cartridge isn't really anything special either, but maybe I say that because I've been spoiled in the past with nice needles.

nice step up from cheap belt drives

By The Bear-x1bCC

from Saint Paul

I picked one of these up to get away from a crappy belt drive turntable I had. I'm not a DJ - I am moving music from LP to PC or just listening. This is a very capable 'out of the box' turntable for someone looking to upgrade but not dump 700.00 on a true pro-line turntable.Highly recommended!

Perfect for digital conversion!!

By Tod Fox

from Munford, TN

Bought this to convert my lp's to digital...and works beautifully! I use the digital connection straight to my sound card and clean it up with Magix....amazing. Replace the cartridge with a Grado, though. The Stanton that it comes with is a bit too "essy" for my taste. Just my 2 cents worth!

good value

By DJ Ohm-eye

from Dallas Metro

After having had a pair of these for several weeks now, they seem to be quite sturdy but are still not as nice as Technics tables. The motor torque being considerably less is the main issue I have with them. I like the plug-in light although I could see it getting easily lost if used for a gig.The ability to play at 72rpm is nice but rarely, if ever, used.

Great set for a beginner

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I own two Stanton t.80's, and I love them. This is my first set of tables and I have to say they were a great value for a beginning Dj like myself. Good start speed, and good tourqe make them easy to spin with. The cartridge isn't bad either. The slipmat leaves a little to be desired though. Great set for a beginner.
