So I'm not an avid vinyl collector, but I'd like a record player just for the novelty.
However, I bought one of the briefcase players. It worked perfectly with my old vinyls. But when I started playing a brand new vinyl which I purchased on Amazon, it would play a few seconds and then the needle would skip a chunk and play again (rinse and repeat).
I tried adjusting the speed etc but it still happened.
Now I'm not being picky. I want something cheap and cheerful (as it's only a fad). But I'd like to know why this happens and what I need to look out for on other players to avoid this.
