One Easy Fix, and This Is a Spectacular Record Player
on December 3, 2011
I bought this record player as a gift for my girlfriend, because she was in love with my Crosley record player. We had a slight issue the first night we played it -- records kept skipping needlessly. I took a look at it and the issue was simple. The arm is too heavy, and the head isn't heavy enough. So, because most vinyls are warped, the head would slip off the record every so often because it's so light. I simply taped a nickel to the head to give it some weight and now it sounds terrific. And, unlike my Crosley, this record player can really put out some sound without external speakers. You can add an equalizer and/or speakers if you wish, but they aren't necessary (like with my Crosley). This player works all by itself. With a CD Player, cassette player, radio and iPod adapter, you've got everything you need for a great home listening center. This player is a steal.
Highly recommend. Do the nickel trick, and you'll fall in love with this equipment immediately.
