Help! New TT skipping badly....
Maybe something as simple as a butchers block will absorb enough vibration to make a difference, that’s not much money unless you go for a fancy one aimed at audiophiles. My current deck is basically ply wood on rigid cones with an arm, motor and ... 
Ayre-cx-7eMP vs. Naim CD5SI Player
Chord Chrysalis was an old favourite with Naim gear if you weren’t using Naim cables, it was actually the same cable but when production stopped Naim bought up all the remaining stock, they still use it for their base level interconnects, which ca... 
Diminishing returns?
With that Denon it looks like the compromise is already made so might as well run with it, and you can hear whats coming up behind you in the films etc. I run TV sound via optical through a two channel system set up for music, there’s no problem w... 
Zappa Recommendations ?
If you don’t like yellow snow how about a yellow shark? 
HiFi News Test Record Azimuth
I have the HiFi News test record, the bias tracks are a waste of time but I use the resonance tracks and I’ve tried the azimuth track, mono button depressed, but it’s very hard with a pure tone to gauge its relative volume to that you heard even a... 
WHAT SONG TOUCHES YOUR HEART THE MOST?
"I shouted out who killed the Kennedys, when afterall, it was you and me" You divil you.For me it’s “Who knows where the time goes” Sandy Denny  
Phono cartridge torque wrench
I’ve bought a little driver with a range of 0-50Ncm. I think the Rega one is preset for 40Ncm, which seems rather high to me, my usual setting by feels is more in the range of 5-10Ncm. I’ve not tried it on the cartridge bolts yet, I can’t access t... 
Tracking error or ??
If the black is anything like the LTD it lacks a bit of fine adjustment for VTA and VTF but you might find it harder to replace than you expect. After hearing one my Aro sounded a bit metallic. Of the cartridges I’ve heard on the LTD the top Dynav... 
two problems with turntable
Rega's anti skate scale is notoriously inaccurate, better to find a starting point with the cartridge holding on a blank disc and set it by ear for best dynamics from there, which will probably be a slight increase from the initial setting. If you... 
Tracking error or ??
I think the under biasing idea is the answer but check that the cantilever is still in line. I had a similar symptom after a year of heavy lockdown use and found the cantilever was off skewed towards the outside of the disc even when not playing, ... 
Cartridges for Rega Tables
I’d never heard of those, will have to look into them.The Dynavector 17Dx is the right for Rega.

Listening to digital and analog
I have a few thousand LPs and a store of CD rips that still get a fair bit if use but a lot of digital listening is to streamed music these day and is exploratory. The downside of streaming is not so much the sound quality, which is pretty close t... 
Different amplifier class for different music genres?
I had a demo of some Thiel speakers some years back using an Accuphase integrated. Tool was a waste of time  with this combo but the same speakers with a Rega amp were fine. It may have been more of a matching issue that just the amp as some Opera... 
why did my record player slow down, speed up, then go back to normal?
On a deck with a synchronous motor (Elite Rock) a new phasing capacitor resulted in the pulley just quivering back and forth, until the deck was turned by hand when it kept going. After a while it would start on its own in the right direction but ...
