The 1st question that should have been asked is if his other records display the same problems before telling the OP to get a new TT, a new cart or anything else. Having experienced the same problems of noisy pressings with almost brand new 'vintage' pressings and hearing the same thing with my setup and far better equipment on several records, it's evident that the records were poorly pressed. With used records it could be the previous owner played them with a bad stylus or a TT incorrectly setup. I've bought unopened/sealed records from the 1950s that also were noisy because they weren't stored correctly or the plastic inner sleeves used back then had a chemical reaction with the long stored vinyl. WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF RECORDS and hear why CDs were widely praised when they first arrived after having to tolerate for years the indifferent quality control record labels and pressing plants had for us music buyers/lovers in years gone by.
