    also, you cant stop a magnetic field, only redirect it. Lead does interact with a magnet but only very slightly.

    Yes, Iíve learned this since then, but I still wonder why Marantz and others use copper to shield their equipment? Perhaps it just looks cool? But the minor hum I discovered, that I could never actually hear while playing a record, was enough for me to rationalize the purchase of a VPI Scout! No more hum, but itís just a better Ďtable all around, the differences are immediately noticeable, and I have no regrets!

    Hello again,
    long time since my last post here but finally got to the bottom of this and thought I should put a close on it.
    Like some have already said, its just the thing with Rega. I took the TT back to the dealer and they tested it and its no different to what they have there. It is not audible when playing unless the amp is up really high and its a quiet piece at the end of the record. It is too loud with the amp up that high and therefore it will not be an issue for me. I just wanted to be sure that my TT was ok and not subject to a manufacturing issue. I am pleased with it and looking forward to upgrading my Ditton 33's next.
    Thanks for all your help and comments
    Cheers
    Bruce
