CAn someone help me set up my new Ortofon OM5E?
I'm after a bit of advice on setting up a new Ortofon OM5E stylus. It's mounted on Technics SL1210, factory arm, with the small weight supplied by Technics between the cartridge and the headshell.
I followed the instructions in the Technics manual regarding setting the weight etc, to the letter. I have two problems though:
1. On some records the arm is skipping right across the record.
2. When the stylus is on the record, the bottom of the cartridge is almost touching the vinyl. On some records you can actually hear it bump onto the vinyl.
Both problems are worse when playing vinyl that is thick.
What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
