Well, because I'm on my looong summer break, I have had time to be messing around with my turntable a wee bit.Now, I'm on this site because I DON'T know hi-fi stuff, rather than because I do! But am happy to reveal my ignorance in sharing with you how delighted I am by the adjustment of the tracking force on my rather budget Project debut tt. Wow! I've never been brave enough to play around with this before, but increasing the force has really reduced distortion, esp on higher range vocals (is that feasible?). The manufacturer recommends 1.75g, and I've taken it to 2g. Am I likely to cause any damage by doing this?
