Record Player Question (from a rookie)

GibsonGibson Toronto Posts: 2,597
Hey gang, 

Sorry for the novice question, but I'm annoyed as heck. My Audio Technicha LP60 has been spinning the just a tad faster than normal. Like, a 4 minute song will finish in 3:30. Anyway, the settings are correct (33.3, not 45, and set to 12' disc.) Google tells me that I just need a new turntable belt. 

I've got one on the way, but I'm quite annoyed. The turntable is less than a year old and gets minimal play. Is there anything else I'm missing or should do? My last player (also a starter model) lasted 7 years before needing a new belt.

Thoughts? All help is appreciated!

    worn belt would not make it run faster.....

    for greater exposure to experience,  I would suggest looking through audiokarma forum. extensive website. try to look past the assholism from some. plenty of helpful folks otherwise.  and your question may have already been asked and answered. report back what you find to help others here
