and yes you can play it on both
try it on both and enjoy the results
let us know what works best ...im sure it will be close
the hifi news test record has resonce bands to check the ideal resonance rate of 10hz if you want to double check

I say had, I played it once, then the second time and noticed the needle was almost vertical and had no bounce. It was very distorted, and through gentle prodding fell off. Do MC Denon's perish with age after 16 years?
I swapped for a spare AT95e i had to hand. It sounded really good. I bet with a top cartridge, it would be better.The Denon sounded good the first time. Would a Denon 110 be ok for a Cambridge Audio 640P Amp on MC connection?
When balancing the arm, I set anti-skate to zero. I noticed when weightless, the arm keeps swing to the right, back to arm rest. I was surprised, given there is no anti-skate is it normal for the arm to gently swing to the right?
Please could someone advise.
Just to summarise the need for help
- Is it ok for a Rega RB250 to keep gently swinging to the arm rest when weightless?
- Can I use a Denon 110 MC into a Cambridge Audio 640P's MC connection with no issues?
- Does the needle on a 16 year old Denon perish with this age?
It shouldn't...........first thought is the bias, even though set to "zero" still has some tension on the arm pillar.......second thought would be the arm wires are influencing the movement.......third, the arm is not 90º to gravity....ie mounted perfectly vertical or the table isn't leveled.

ive had a couple snap on me as well
