Unless it's just a dirty stylus I would email their CS department. 2.65 is way too high.
Did you doublecheck cartridge alignment?
100% this, I’ve found that about 1.8 is the sweet spot for the red and blue 2Ms
@tdawe I can take a pic of my cart tonight and send it with the factory alignment which hasn't been a problem for me. It's basically in the middle of the head shell but at a very slight angle.
I've cleaned the stylus multiple times with both a zerodust and a magic eraser.
No - that was the next thing that occurred to me but since I really don't know how to do it, I figured I'd start asking questions here before I get out of my depth.
That'd be great, thanks.
In the meantime set your tracking back to 1.80 before you damage your stylus.
Don't worry - I turned up the VTF for experimental purposes but (assuming I can find another solution) I'm not planning on doing it regularly. I also tend not to have a ton of time to spin records during the week.
Haha good. Here is a photo. You can see how one screw is slightly more forward.
I think mine looks similar but it’s really hard to tell (I bet if I hadn’t seen your photo I’d say mine was dead even). Going to get an alignment protractor and check.
Good news everyone! The RT85 - black is back in stock with an estimated delivery date of 2/19.
I've been checking their site regularly, because a friend of mine is getting back into vinyl, and his wife wants to get him a new tt for his birthday, which is tomorrow. She was worried she would miss the restock, so I helped her out by ordering an RT83 in walnut for him. I have a feeling I'm going to be jealous once it arrives.
Could be the stylus. I've heard of Ortofons being bunk out of the box. Obviously get in touch with Fluance and see what they say, but my inclination would be to have them send you a new stylus first to see if that's the culprit.
Got an actual email notification this time!
I got a notification this morning for stock replenishment as well. I had checked this past Sunday and noticed that the RT85 was back in stock in both walnut and black and I didn't have an email notification. I put the walnut model in my cart, but by the time I got to checkout it showed as out of stock. I ended up buying the gloss black version instead.
I’m thinking about ordering this turntable and putting my orbit up for sale.. hmm.. should I or should I not????
They're both really pretty, I don't think you can go wrong.
FWIW, I’m interested in a shootout!
I've done that already. RT85 vs Orbit with acrylic platter and Grado Black2. RT85 wins. Not sure if it's the cart or what but it's a legit upgrade.
What do you like better about the Fluance? Apologies if I missed your post about this!
