    i have got a pair of stanton str8 150 decks and they are by
    far the best decks i have ever played on (and yes i have
    played on loads). they are far superior to any other deck the
    torque is unmatched and the motors are in the same condition
    as the day i bought them from new. i love these decks and do
    not want to get rid of them. but every where i play out
    people use the most beat up shit sets of technics imaginable
    so i need to get some more technics experience. i am looking
    to swap for a set of 1210's, i dont really care what condition
    they are in as long as they work. the stantons would be ideal
    for any type of dj and i can do mixes on these that i just cant
    do on beat up technics. if anyones interested let me no.
    you are welcome to come and use them first.

    cheers

    People without 1210s / 1200s need to take note, it's the way it is

    You're right though, I've got a couple Stanton t120c's and i find them so much better than 1210s. they're the same price as mk3s but they've got all the features that the mk5s have got, better torque etc. much preferred mixing on the stantons but finally had to buy 1210s for the same reason's you said. shame really!

    Rather than swapping, why not just sell them and then get some 1210's off ebay? I know I wouldnt swap my 1210's for some Stantons. Not in a million years.

    i sold a pair of technics on ebay, they looked 10 times better in the pictures than they actually were, so, my advise is try before you buy.

    Mate just go on ebay and sell your stantons, then buy a pair of 1210 mk 2s, if you look well enough you can get a pair of mint condition mk 2s for about £300, and I do mean MINT condition

    Ah well. I love you too. And I do like the fact you bite so quick. I mean, a little banter shouldn't be so SERIOUS now should it ? Or maybe it should ? Who cares? .... really
