    i have a prob with my tone arm too, it feels very slighty stiff and when it gets half way through a record it stays in the same place and jumps

    you know how if you put the needle on a blank sided vinyl it should skid straight to the middle... well this one dont it stays where you drop it

    also the audio sounds distorted

    any ideas people??? im thinking im gonna have to replace the tone arm mechanism :(

    It's supposed to stay where it is, not go to the middle. If it's set up correctly, that is
