Brand New Vinyl Static and Pops

Nothing major, but annoying.

Could it be because I was spinning old dirty vinyl which made the platter dirty/dusty?

I'm about to buy the humminguru. Does anything go well with it?



New vinyl is not clean vinyl. The stylus creates static when you play the record as well. What is the humidity in your room?

Humidity is unchanged since I bought the Technics 1500C which was recent.

I don't think that is the issue.

And as I mentioned I played the new lps several times (maybe 3 times each) with no static or pops.

I have, but i'm using the brush that came with the cartridge.

Should I buy one with liquid?


I just opened a brand new virgin/unopened LP and there's no static/pops...

What do you think?
