For those who thought turntables were a thing of the past, The Stanton Group is here to disagree. The company makes professional sound and lighting equipment and accessories such as speakers, turntables, and replacement needles. It operates through several divisions including Stanton Magnetics (mixers, turntables, headphones, effects machines); KRK Systems (monitors, subwoofers); Pickering and NP/AC (turntable cartridges); Final Scratch (digital audio software); and Cerwin-Vega (professional and home audio systems). Products are sold through electronic stores and music retailers such as Guitar Center and Sam Ash. The company was founded in 1946 by Walter Stanton.
