All the Stanton, Audio Technica, MCX, Pioneer PX 1000, and several others are made by Hanpin in China. They offer everything from $100 tables to the $700 Pioneer and top line Audio Technica. The USB tables come in two flavors, cheap and slightly cheap. Neither offers much in the way of specs, but they play music without ruining any cartridges or records. The digital out is not high res, somewhere around Redbook if I remember correctly. My brother uses the AT brand for converting his lps to digital and loves it.
