I've posted a thread about this before and alluded to it in another, but I've had some newer developments so I thought I'd just start a new thread. Like the title says, I've been experiencing inner groove distortion on my turntable, including brand new records. In addition to distortion, the inner grooves have also been more prone to skipping and locking into a single groove perpetually. Once the needle gets into the dead wax, I usually only have a couple seconds before it jumps back into the last few seconds of music. Also, I've noticed that when I drop the needle into the outer dead wax/blank groove (I don't know what it's called) it will usually skid over all those grooves and occasionally some of the first few seconds of music. A lot of these problems are more recent developments, so I fear whatever is wrong is getting worse. In trying to combat this, I've replaced my cartridge, adjusted the anti-skate (though I'm not really sure what I'm doing with it), and used one of those alignment protractors (I'm not 100% sure I'm using that correctly either). My turntable is a TEAC TN-300 and my cartridge is an Audio Technica AT95E.
