Hope it gets fixed fast and not too costly.

Thanks Gene.

For those who might be interested, on the original album Little Girl Blue, the track Plain Gold Ring is the second track in on side 2 and it is clean with no distortion.

Thanks Bill. Are you referring to an original pressing of the album or the Analog Productions reissue (of which there is both a 33 and a 45 available)?

Unfortunately some records are simply pressed poorly. If the record has gone through my cleaning process (ultrasonic + VPI HW-17) and still sounds poor when other records sound great - then it's the record.

My copy is a re-issue of the original Bethlehem Records. 33.33 rpm. If cleaning matters, mine is an HW-17, used as directed.

Looks like others are experiencing inner groove distortion and have notified Acoustic Sounds. They've acknowledged being able to duplicate the sound and that all copies were affected. Let's see what happens...

Is there a reduction in the inner groove distortion if the anti-skate force is increased slightly?
