It is probably worth having the Denon repaired by the service center, rather than buying a new one.
The best type of turntable is straight line tracking.
The best type of stylus is an upper end unit, such as a Shure.
A better sounding stylus is moving coil, but requires more tracking weight, which wears the LPs out faster.
In any case, it is better to let the experienced technician install the cartridge in the turntable, and test the tracking, before playing your records.
THANKS FOR THE SOUND ADVICE..MY MAIN CONCERN WITH REPAIR IS THAT THE SAME PROBLEM MAY OCCUR.MANY OTHER USERS HAVE SAME PROBLEM. I'D HATE TO FIX A PROBLEM WITH A PROBLEM..WORTH A TRY THO. I'LL CALL FOR REPAIR COST AND "SHURE" STYLUS..THANKS.. "C".
