    YES, YES AND YES!

    Never going to match 1210s but the torque is pretty tasty. Really sturdy and built to last... I got my pair for £150 but I think that was a bit of a steal. Always been proud to own a pair and never really thought about switching.

    Are these better or worse than the STR8-150s?

    I had a pair of 150's (i believe these are very similar to the 100's) which i loved and technically could not say anything bad about! ... I would say tho, before you buy, its worth thinkin about weva or not ur planning on playing out at all? ... if u are i'd say ur best off stretchin and tryin to get some 2nd hand 1210's ... the tourque on the stantons is amazin but wen u then switch and have a random sesh on some technics i found i was sometimes a bit heavy handed ... there is more of a touch required to use technics i think ... saying that though as alot of my mates had technics i was soon perfectly compfortable using both and could switch quite easily ...
    Dunno if u r considerin the technics but to give u an idea i recently got an absolutely mint pair with basically new needles (ortofon pro s') for 360 ... granted I did have to be quite patient for that deal to come around but i think it was well worth the wait :)

    Just save an extra £70 and get some 1210s. You'll only end up getting some in future anyway.

    good choice :) you probably would of looked at buying a pair after a year or so of the stantons anyway.

    cant see them being spankers for 380 tho, but theyre pretty sturdy anyway
