Antiskating & tonearm height

Skating, a common issue for turntables, forces the stylus inward, harming your vinyl. Uneven wear, stylus wear-and-tear, and playback distortion are its side effects. Anti-skating devices come to the rescue, restoring balance. DJ Rafik explains how to set up antiskating and tonearm height.

Additionally, he will show you how to properly care for your stylus by using an Ortofon Stylus fiber brush. Simply run the brush along the cantilever in the direction of the stylus tip, always moving from the rear of the cartridge toward the stylus tip, and never from the stylus tip to the rear of the cartridge or from side to side.
