I've had three copies of The Red Hot Chili Peppers Stadium Arcadium and haven't been able to listen to any of them with out loud pops. It sounds as if there are grooves running in the wrong direction. I chalked it up to bad pressings but asked the retailer to play the last copy before they sent it. They reported it sounded "fantastic" but I still have the same problem.
I checked the tracking force with the suplied gauge and it looks about rite, although I cant be 100% with that gauge. I going to my stereo shop in the A.M. to hear the record on another table. I should be able to rule out the vinyl after that. They may be able to let me use a better tracking force gauge to double check that. After that I'm out of ideas. I hate the idea that the cart will not track a record with this much base and there is nothing I can do, but that may be the case. I realy enjoy the table as it is and I don't want to have to upgrade. Anyone have any experiences or ideas that might help?
