If you're looking for a comparable alternative to Technic-1200's, the Stanton Str8-150's are your go to turntables. One of the nicest things about them is that they come loaded with an industry standard, Stanton 680.v3 cartridge which delivers high-quality sound for any club DJ that's looking to get the most out of their tracks right out of the gate. They also have a direct drive motor which delivers a tonne of torque and is perfect for back-cueing and scratching. For anyone who is skeptical about not using an S-shaped tone arm, believe it or not, the straight tone arm is super stable so I never have issues with tracking. Although you have to invest quite a bit of money up front (approx. $600 each) the return on your investment will be exponential. They come fully loaded with all the features pro DJs look for in a turntable and their heavy duty steel construction makes sure they are built to last.
