Like New DP-35F

Post by ryanengle42 » 04 Oct 2018 09:17

I wrote a long convoluted post and deleted it. I have a Schiit Mani and an Audio Technics LP-120. MY dad gave me his Denon DP-35f with the old Diamond needle. I can hear like a scratching with the Denon. The needle on it cost roughtly $480 in 1992 and he says he only played 5-8 records on it. i thought i cleaned it, i know he has a "subsonic" cleaner he had for his needles.

My question is. IS the scratching noise from an old needle? OR is it from the player. There are so many variables here. But if u guys could eliminate DP-35f VS Audio Technica LP120. I would be so happy.

if the platter spins by itself will it make the same scratching noise? there is a tapehead looking thing under the platter that might touch the platter if it still make the sound.
