Many of the forum experts are to blame here, dispensing incorrect advise like it's been passed down from on high. Wrong. They pulled it out their ass!
So please, please, use your dealer to help you. Or if it's a second hand or online piece, then find somewhere to take it to for a proper setup. I have practically stopped shipping turntables, due to the fact that some who claim to have set up many tables can't really do so. If you don't live close to a dealer then you'd probably be better off ordering an online Rega, which is plug and play, then fiddle with a table and not get the best sound that table can give. As good as digital is starting to get, (and I'm talking a music server and DAC- get your computer out of there ) a properly setup turntable is still God's gift to mankind. So please don't abuse it.
