I’m using Linn Sondek turntable with an AKG cartridge and, of late, I’ve noticed a lot of pops and crackles on records which previously sounded pretty clean. Could this be due to the cartridge getting old? Thanks Javed
Would a worn stylus cause pops and crackles? Also, the pops and crackles decrease appreciably if I play the same record again immediately. Maybe playing it the first time clears some of the dust. Is that possible?
