Don't worry about the anti-skating, it's common to have it little more than the cartridge downforce - and you write it has a great sound anyway and that is what it's all about.

Maybe this thread will encourage you: viewtopic.php?t=29656
An update on the anti skate: it uses a weight which you can place in either of three positions. The weight balances the anti skate after the weight of the cartridge, it fine tunes itself so there is no need of additional fine tuning. Just let go off your control here and accept that it works good! Pro-Ject uses the same method with their 9 and 9cc tonearm, and this is used by some very fine turntables of today like the Music Hall 5.1.
I say it would be a shame to ditch this fine looking and solid turntable with a smooth anti skate solution in favor of a cheesy looking Technics belt driven consumer turntable. It's your choice, but I urge you to keep the Kenwood.
