Need Suggestions And Help With Upgrading Turntable
I have tons of vinyl. Bought it since the 70's and still buy it now. Love Record Store Day. Have every single Pearl Jam XMas 45. Been listening for the last few years on an Audio Technica AT-LP-120-USB turntable. I wanted to try to upgrade a bit and someone suggested I start with going with a big upgrade to the stylus. The stock one is called an ATN95E and I was able to find out that there are 3 higher levels of upgrade in the ATN series and went for the best one, an ATN95SA for $175 from a company called LP Gear in Nevada. So I switched over to the new stylus and the needle just skates right across the record. Switched back and forth between the new and old just to make sure I wasn't messing up in the switcheroo, but the old one always tracks fine and the new one skates. I don't think it's a tracking force issue since they both recommend the same 2.0 g number. Getting very little satisfaction trying to communicate via email with LP Gear who sold it to me. Looks like I may be back to square one with my tail between my legs.
Can anyone offer any suggestions on what I should try to do? Do you need to upgrade the entire cartridge and not just the stylus? I would really appreciate any suggestions. My head is spinning faster than a record on the turntable.
