    So don't Far easier to do nothing rather than address the problem
    My audio bits: Thorens / diy phono, CD/dvd player(s), diy pre, F6, Tannoy Golds in my boxes / my xovers, and of course all strung together with basic diy Wires
    Lots of Cd's, yet more audio files, a couple of hundred semi worn Lps.

    Its not that. I dont really understand what you are getting at in terms of balancing them or whether its worth my time. Ive just had another rough edged disc which spins ok without vibration.

    Maybe the original example is cut off centre.

    I dont want to sound anal over this and maybe nobody else is that bothered. I dont particularly want the drive in two machines sounding like a lawnmower with a bad disc. It was cheap enough to put it down to experience

    If it happens again with a boxset for example, I will be sending it back.

    All the best

    If it is a rare problem, I agree there is no sense in getting excited about fixing it. And like the device I mentioned that trues a disk, if the center is off, balancing the disk will not make the "groove" concentric.
