EDIT: After a little extra research and a screwdriver, I was able to fix this problem with the adjustment screws... very simple. Leaving the original complaint up in case anyone else with a similar issue stumbles across this.
Here's a quick question about a funny little noise coming from my new TT:
I have noticed with heavier records (like 180 grams) there is a slight "grinding" noise once per rotation. I can't hear it over the music even at low volumes, so it doesn't really bother me... and with lighter records it doesn't happen at all... but I can't figure out what it could be?
I am sure this is a terrible thing to do, but I even pushed down on the spindle with no platter on there to see if it was the weight causing something underneath to grind... but I didn't hear it.
I'm thinking it's somewhere between the platter and the piece that the platter sits upon (not sure the proper term for that) but am not 100% sure.
Does this sound like anything any of you have heard of before and is there anything I should check with it mechanically?
Mostly I want to make sure it isn't taking some kind of sustained beating that will eventually ruin its ability to please me as it does
