My third and last TT is a Stanton ST-100 with an S-tone Arm, for $400, nine years ago.
The STR8-100 has a Straight Tone Arm, for DJs.
I've had Belt Drive units where the Belts deteriorated and broke, so No Belt Drive for me.
Most TT I actually looked at were cheap looking and toy-like, with everything made of plastic.
I did a lot of research at the time and found the ST-100.
I liked everything about it and that it weighs close to 40 lbs.
I didn't like that it didn't come with a Dust Cover.
I was able to buy one direct from Stanton.
It has been replaced in the Stanton lineup by the ST-150 and STR8-150.
But, I will pass this one down to my Grand Kids.
