tone arm balancing, etc.
November 26, 2019 10:47PM
I just purchased and set up an AT-LP120XUSB turntable and I have a question. I work with far from virgin vinyl and I’m finding that if I balance the tone arm, I am getting skips, even with the tracking force increased. If I increase the weight, it helps but I’m wondering if that’s a wise move.

I also found that if I increase the anti-skating anywhere past zero, the arm wants to go back off the edge of the record.

Would a conical vs an elliptical stylus help?

Any ideas / suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you & Happy Thanksgiving!
