    Even though I enjoy spinning vinyl I harbor a moderate amount of contempt for the medium. Some of that contempt is directed at the quality of many recordings, but most of it is directed at the quality of the pressings themselves. Even some of my 'audiophile' pressings come up short in this regard.

    My humble Rega, Sumiko, Creek setup plays the quality recordings/pressings in a thoroughly enjoyable way and allows me to get sufficiently close to the recorded event. The lower tier records are still going to sound like poor recordings or poor pressings no matter how much money I throw at a vinyl playback system. Yes, my records are clean and well-taken care of and my table is properly set up. Otherwise, my great-sounding LP's wouldn't sound great. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Lol.

    Yeah, it really is. I get a wee bit of Pro-Ject's infamous motor hum, but it's all but unnoticeable.

    Since my last post in February I added a Technics SL-1210GR to the main system and kept the Pioneer PLX-1000 for the secondary.

    Rega Planar 3 with Shure V15 Vmr since 1989. Technics Sl-7 with Shure M110 HE in the bedroom. As far as I'm concerned I'm set for life.

    Have you taken out the 2 screws on the motor mount under the platter? Not the 4 that hold the rubber band but the 2 on the sides. That should fix it, if not

    Which model of B&O and what cartridge?
    I used a B&O RX with an MMC2 cart for years.
    Sound quality was stunning for some pressings - better than a tricked out Linn - but not all pressings. It hated some Deutche Grammophone records.

    Primary system has a Linn LP12 at the heart of it. I have a secondary system with a Rega Planar 1 (latest generation), which sounds pretty nice for a 'plug-n-play'.
