  1. I can guarantee you this is not a setup issue, yes it may account for a proportion of it, but skipping on FU700 and R200 units, as well as many Skywin turntables that use a similar tonearm design, is a well document fault. I am a mod on a large (200k+ users) vinyl related forum, and this is by far the most commonly document complaint related to entry level tables.
  2. Yep, great info, this seems to be a common solution, albeit many people do it without actually checking the tracking force, just try different positions till it stops skipping. As for the adjustment part, I should have clarified that it can't be adjusted in the traditional moving counterweight fashion. I think altering spring length/force might be beyond what the intended demographic for this player is willing to do to get it working.
  3. I am talking specifically about the LP60, since it is the one OP mentioned, which is not the only turntable that AT rebrands. As I states AT does not make turntables, they rebrand them, some of the OEM turntables they re-brand are solid entry level offerings (LP120 etc), some are not. The AT60 has no adjustments, and is at the mercy of being set up properly from factory, if the tracking force is not set up correctly (and since there is no way to change this (spring based)) it will skip. Just because a company makes one or a few solid products does not mean you should recommend all products they make.
  4. AT does not make turntables, they rebadge Hanpin models, in this case its a rebranded Hanpin FU-700. Having owned a FU-700 variant (was a gift) I could never recommend it to anyone, it did not keep speed nor could it play thicker (180g) records without playback issues. The 2nd is a very common issue, a quick google of "Lp60 skipping" will show how widespread it is.
  5. I have a very similar McChanson EL34 amp powering some rear horned speakers, gorgeous combo!
  6. Can I grab Iron and Wine, should be able to pick up Sunday.
  7. Turntable to play 78s and LPs?

    Grab a LP120 and a 2nd headshell. Have one headshell with your regular cart and one with the 78 cart, this allows for easy swapping without needing to realign. Buy a cheap digital scale for easy tracking force setting.
