Now is your chance to get shot of it.  Sell it to a greater fool and get a VPI Scout, or something else respectable....

I think @oldtimer wants your linn

Which came first the fig leaf or the oak leaf?

In my religion, the oak.

It's not actually.  The Oak predates the Fig.  Paleocene and perhaps older versus Miocene.

The edible fig did not exist until men bred it.

The fall is the best time of the year... to go for a drive and listen to Genesis...

Need some quick opinions on what's going on with my pickup needle. This needle was bought in 2020 for my vintage Onkyo CP1000A in order to bring it back to life.

 

When I put it down, it skids one or two centimeters toward the center (scratch!) and then it starts playing with lots of distortions and jumps. Can't see anything wrong with it, though.

My guess is it is broken and needs replacement, right?

HHHMMM....what about the anti scating or counterweight ?  Normally a needle damage happens not so quick ..from one to the other moment ?

Hope that is the fix. Would compare stylus to online close-up. I would likely be wrong but would try another lp after cleaning the tip with light vigor.

Too bad another stylus not laying about.

Time difference has me coming in late

The list to check

Dirty record grooves

Dust accumulation on the diamond 

Cartridge weight on the record 

Anti skate adjustment 

Damaged or worn diamond stylus

 

If worn or damaged it’s better to replace
