4 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Go with the "Shure" thing and get the M44-7's and save money in the long run. The price on the Stanton's are appealing but the h"
Sound: The sound quality is comprable to the M44-7 Feature: There aren't a lot of features on any cart....gave it a 3 just for fun Ease of Use: If you buy the 505V3 H it comes pre-mounted on a stanton head shell....very easy Quality: Be CAREFUL removing the needle, it's body is plastic and pulling it off the headshell can cause damage. Value: Good value Manufacturer Support: Didn't have to contact them The Wow Factor: I got it because of cost, but will go back Shure M44-7. Overall: The proper tracking force is very difficult to find with it being between 2.0 and 5.0. I have tried all of em and can't keep this thing from skipping. For regular palyback this is pretty good, but if you are turntablist I would suggest you go with the best needle for that application, which is the Shure M44-7. I just bought those after 2 horrific weeks using the stanton's and without breaking in the 44-7's I was able to scratch and beat juggle right off the top, just imagine the fun I'll have after proper break in on the shure's.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
