This is a VERY VAGUE description. I can name about 30 styli that fit this description.

More than likely the original replacement stylus is no longer available. You'll probably have to purchase a new cartridge assembly. The following should fit your model, however, if you can provide me with the model of your turntable, I can find an exact fit.

Vestax Handy Trax Turntable skips toward the end of very LP played. Does anyone know how to resolve this issue?


Generally caused by a worn stylus, or incorrect pressure. Increase the weight - pressure, by adjusting the weight on the end of the arm.

A damaged or worn stylus will effect all records not just one. I don't know what D4 fluid is, but if there was some still present on the record it could have got inside the cartridge and done some damage to it.

It sounds like you have not mounted the cartridge right to the headshell. There should be some screws that hold it on. Adjust the cartridge so it looks right to the eye and is not going to catch anything.
The counterweight should then be set to that recommended for that make of cartridge. If you don't have the information, look up the cartridge online. The make and model number should be on it somewhere.

What is the minimum specification I need in a turntable, to complete a high quality transfer of my classical record collection to my computer?


Beauty is in the ear of the beholder. Minimum spec? Constant speed is good, low noise, a stylus and tracking force that won't carve the edges off your vinly. Read up on various turntables and pay specific attention to user reviews. Use search engines for detailed answers.

Since every play of a record wears it a little more use the highest bit rate for maximum fidelity when copying. Get it right the first time and invest in software that can clean up problems (pops, ticks, background noise) in post-production if necessary. Multiple conversion steps will always degrade the original sound to some extent.

What I would do is digitally copy the LP's to CD raw at CD-resolution (44.1kHz 16-bit). Then work from those copies.

When i play both my Stanton STR8-150, i can hear a lot of audio coming from the stylus area.. its very noticeable in the backround when the amp is turned on or off... im not sure if the needles are worn,...


If you're close enough and there is very little ambient noise in your listening room it would be possible to hear the airborne vibrations of a stylus in a groove. Be aware that IT can also 'hear' and react to other airborne and surface vibrations in the real world. Welcome to the analog world.

I doubt that excessive tracking force (within reason) would make LP playback audible. If you were playing an LP on an old Victrola Talking Machine that uses a sharpened railroad spike as a sytlus, well, maybe.

For a manual, go to http://www.retrevo.com, register and download it and many other manuals for free. I used >> Stanton STR8-150 << as a keyword.

The manual refers to a "tone arm and cartridge settings" section that I can't see.

To adjust the static balance of the tonearm precisely within its 2-5 gram limit (see the specs for your cartridges) get yourself a Shure SFG-2 (a search on Retrevo shows several for under $20) and follow its directions. You will have to make slight adjustments to the tonearm counterweight to achieve the desired tracking force.

I have a mid 1970s Sears turntable with am/fm, casette, and 8-track. It plays older vinyl just fine and even one new 45 but my new 33 skips a lot. Could it be the record, do I need a new needle, any...


My suggestion is ask a friend etc with a turntable to try the new LP and see if it bounces on there's. If it plays your old stuff it most likely doesn't need a new stylus. Records are records they don't make them any different to what they used to. Check the new LP, is it warped does it have marks where it jumps?

One channel vocals drop out


yes, it is very likely the stylus. the stock needle is conical shaped like a ball point pen. You might have a tonearm that is out of alignment but usually it's the needle. It is possible it is just dust on the tip but if it occurrs in consistent areas of the record, then it is likely that the music is just too demanding for the LP2D you will either have to use your old technics which is likely better quality or you could try upgrading the stylus on your LP2D.
If you do a yahoo search for "4-211-DE-GUARD" with the quotes, the 1st result will take you to an elliptical upgrade over the stock needle. The elliptical tip will pull more info out of the grooves and into your computer for further processing.

If your needle just started to skip across the LP, then that means your stylus is damaged/worn and needs to be replaced. It's very hard to see the diamond tip on the stylus, and it might not even be there at all. So checking it might not yield any results. This is what happens when the needle is worn. It will skip across the record.
