Brand new vinyl - skips?
I'm new into modern vinyl, so new, in fact, that I set up my TT yesterday and played vinyl for the first time in nearly 20 years. Anyway, I played several albums, from different sources. I played a couple of used albums, and they seemed to play fine and sound excellent.
Then I played three premium, brand-new albums. Two of the three skipped badly and repeatedly. Up until skipping badly, the albums sounded absolutely wonderful. So, I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong that I can correct, or if I need to contact the retailer and ask for an exchange. I don't have a record cleaner, either machine or manual, yet so I played the records straight out of the package.
Given my newness, I could imagine a simple cleaning, an adjustment to some part of the setup, or something else could correct the problem. Any insight would be most appreciated.
