Hi Den and everyone posting in this tread.
All you guy’s are spot on with your recommendations.
I thank you all so much.
I’m very anal about setting up my TT. As a retired machinist I even put my Interapid test indicator back to work as an accurate why to help
me adjust VTA height(s) and I also use my precision gage blocks to help in getting the arm level as a stating point.
I do Azimuth by ear mostly, as well as anti-skating.
A test LP will help me quite a bit, I think. I plan on purchasing the HI-FI news test LP.
The odd thing is all this ssssibilance trouble I’m having seems to have started right around the same time I started experimenting with
DIY record cleaning solutions based on a chemist formula on other forums.
Don’t quote me on this because I think his formula is correct if using an RCM but I’ve had troubles with the formula in my manual cleaning process.
I’ve experimented with the formula alot and I think I have it under control for manual cleaning.
The thing is, I can’t say his formula is the problem I’m having with sssss.
The problem just so happened to start right around the same time I started experimenting with the formula.
It maybe nothing more then a coincidence from a failing stylus.
Or, is it possible that I’m getting my LP’s so clean that there is excessive friction between the LP and stylus.
Sounds crazy but is it possible.
I’ve had a lot of white fuzz buildup on my stylus(s) lately causing distortion/mistracking.
Is it the DIY record cleaning solution or something else? I don’t know at this time.
Sooner or later I’ll get this figured out and be back up and spinning LP’s.
One other thing. I’ll most likely draw up my own protractor with autocad or other software to be sure it’s 100% accurate.
Steve.I don't know what is causing this white fuzz buildup but it is a real PITA.
