Cannot stop mistracking 2011-05-14 16:08:24 I've had a Stanton T92USB for the past year or so and have recently bought an amp (Cambridge Audio AM10) and some headphones (Audio Technica ATH-A700) for proper listening. I quickly found out I needed a better carrtidge than the pre-loaded one (Stanton 500.V3), so bought myself an Ortofon 2M Red.Now, in setting this up I've learnt a whole lot more than I ever thought I would need with regards to cartridge set up! I've aligned it as best I can using protractors, and using a copy of Hi-Fi News Test LP (HFN002) have been trying to get the rest of the settings fine tuned.However, once I get to the second bias track on HFN002 (+14Hz), I get a very loud buzzing on the right channel, which I am assured is mistracking. The first band (+12Hz) sounds OK - but the third (+16Hz) makes the needle jump straight off! The anti-skate setting on the Stanton seems to do no good whatsoever - the buzzing continues unabated. The words alongside HFN002 imply that I should at the very least be able to make it through the three bands. The recommended tracking weight is 1.8g, and this works fine on band 1. I tried increasing all the way up to 4g to see if it would cope with band 3, but still it jumps out. I'm thinking that this is something badly set up which no amount of tracking force/anti skate will rectify.So my question is this: would mistracking be caused by poor cartridge alignment?I've set up the cartridge as best I can using multiple protractors and for the life of me it looks perfect. I'm also assuming that if the cartridge was that badly aligned then I would clearly notice this with a record (I can't, although I can hear slight sibillance on very loud parts)?
