    Interesting about your Benz - the General just had a faulty new Benz LPS also. I think the issue was to do with cantilever.

    I thought the micro ridge stylus was small....it’s like the diamond cracked in half. I heard a sweep sound on each revolution. Then I saw a dust bunny packed around the stylus...it was shaved vinyl. Wrecked the first 30 seconds of Bill Evans Live at Montreux.

    Serious bummer. Nothing like your cartridge eating your vinyl.

    That's like hitting 'record' instead of 'play' on a historic master tape!

    Christian, that is a real bummer, and so weird too. Crazy that the diamond would disintegrate like that!
    I have only heard of this kind of circumstance once before, it was caused by a very nasty record that was full of grit and this grit caused the diamond to destroy itself. I canít imagine your record was in that shape..

    No...it was a Classic Records reissue, 180 gram from Hobson’s archive. I replaced it recently on Ebay with the Verve original first issue. Hopefully that will be even better.
