    Crackling seems to lessen when i touch the arm-even the carbon fibre tube!

    Anybody got any suggestions?

    Have you connected the earth wire to the amp mate.
    Also try changing the interconnects .

    my rock 2 has an inverted bearing,after a post from mark i tried some 30.cs silicone fluid/oil.
    to my ears it seemed to reduce the noise floor,i heard a noticeable difference,tonight i tried 12,500 cs and that's better still.
    so whats going on? i can only assume the heavy viscous fluid is damping out micro vibrations?
    my only slight concern is its lubrication properties compared to oil.

    Gary came over yesterday and set the arm up for me- my settings were way off.

    He reckons the crackling is one of the phono plugs added to the rear playing up.

    Will hang fire till Brian-the Lenco doctor can do a house visit!

    Brian,
    You know what im like....opened up the back and one of the phono plug wires came away from the socket.

    Crimped it tt was sounding great....

    Changed record-silence!!

    Much fiddling about ensued -jiggle the phono leads at the rear and one channel returns for a bit then fades.

    Might have to desolder the phono plugs and give my soldering skills a go!!!!
