How STOKYO MCC Turntables are Graded

Product Information technics

We get questions asking what are the differences between Grade A MCCs to Grade B to Grade C. We hope the examples below help you understand the differences..

GRADE A- to B+

STOKYO MCC Turntable Grade A- to B+

This Tech had almost everything to mint except the back right corner. Tone arm, platter, switches, etc in mint condition so we will consider this an A- or B+ even though of the small scratch in the back.

GRADE A

No noticeable scratches and nicks.

GRADE A

GRADE A- to  B+

STOKYO MCC Turntable Grade A- to B+

All that found on this TT was a small scratch on the back left corner, making this a B+ to close to A grade. Tone arm and case perfect.

GRADE A

STOKYO MCC Grade A

This model would be a Grade A. You do see a small surface scratch on the corner (front right) but asides from that, it’s been used by a non DJ and kept in pristine conditions.

GRADE A

STOKYO MCC Turntable Grade A

Asides from Cartridge, Headshell and Adapter (all not included). This model is a Grade A with no or minimal surface scratches. Probably a Hi-Fi user, not a DJ…for DJs, something we would prefer :)

GRADE A- to B+

STOKYO MCC Grade A
Everything perfect except the left corner in the front. Small scratch found, no damage otherwise.

GRADE C 

STOKYO Turntable Grade C

Due to paint and bubbling. Damage also found on this one. The rest operates and runs fine to regular Spec.

GRADE C

MCC Grade C

Deep scratches and damage to edge of the body. However, the rest is in fine condition and performs just perfect.

NOTE:

Some tone arms on C’s may have a very small dent. If audio and performance is not affected, it is not replaced. It will only be replaced if tonearm damage is severe and affects audio and performance.

GRADE C

STOKYO MCC Grade C

Body and tone arm in good condition. Some scratches found on body and corner. Since you can feel the scratches and some depth to them, we would bring this to a C level

NOTE:

Some tone arms on C’s may have a very small dent. If audio and performance is not affected, it is not replaced.

It will only be replaced if tonearm damage is severe and affects audio and performance.

GRADE B to C 

STOKYO MCC Grade B to C

Case of the body is in Good condition, however due to some paint fade and abrasions this is a B and if any more scratches we would drop it to a C.

NOTE:

Some tone arms on C’s may have a very small dent. If audio and performance is not affected, it is not replaced.

It will only be replaced if tonearm damage is severe and affects audio and performance.
