I have had that happen before lol. Luckily it just stayed in the lead-out area, making no noise at all. I am thankful it happened now and not later on when I upgrade my cartridge.

 

Though just because of this I am thinking of making my own tonearm lifter. I think I can come up with something safe.

What about LP's on which during quiet passages I can faintly hear what sounds like the next groove?  I read this is an artifact with a certain type of record pressing.  Anyone else get this?  Last night I listened to Norah Jones Come Away With Me, and the effect was sort of annoying.  I think I'll try getting the heavier recording.

Remember any info that is picked up from the needle is going to be replayed. Even small bumps pressing threw from the other side.

 

On some early RCA pressings we could actually hear the other side. There are so many strange funny things in the world of vinyl. The ...I think they were called something like flexies for short. They were mid seventies pressings which were so thin and not totally black vinyl, you could see threw em.

 

I'm not talking about those disks that came with magazines, These were regular records that maybe to cut cost were made really thin. Maybe the name was Dynagroove?.

 

Edit: The labels we could hear the other side looked actually like this RCA.

I believe it's called pre-echo and post-echo and has something to do with pressing issues, no pun intended.  Cassettes and open reels could have the same problem, maybe having to do with how loud the music was recorded, meter needles to the max and beyond.

 

Yes, Dynagroove from RCA, although I never heard print through from the other side!  Had something to do with the oil crisis in the '70s.

Seems like it was more common with cassettes: I've only heard this on a few LP's.

It happened with tape because the tape magnetism bleed to another area. Perfect example is when Robert Plant says Way down....... in the middle of Whole Lot Of Love. Perfect tape bleed.

Plenty of modern records have that issue. James Blake's ST album did pretty badly. My old copy of Zep IV does it, too.

As for Come Away With Me...just get the AP 200g pressing. Master is better, pressing is better. Worth the investment. Though my Blue Note cooy didn't have that problem.

I'm thinking I'll do that.  It'll give me a chance to try out Sounstagedirect.

Those titanium needles under the arm really can bend to look like fish hooks. Lucky VPI sells em as replacements.

Maybe that's why Rega suggests to try playing with the dust cover on - IF BIG FRIENDS COME OVER!

A phonostage with balanced outputs? You don't see that often

True, however their GCPH (phono) had them, also.  And then plug those into their GCHA (head amp)...
