Why is the stylus on my Alva TT skipping across the record?

If the stylus is skipping across your record, it could be down to the following:

  • Stylus guard has not been removed
  • Tracking force is too light – Confirm that the tracking force is correct
    with the tonearm force gauge
  • Confirm that the anti-skating bias is set to '2'
    Please note: This is the correct setting for the factory fitted Cambridge Audio high output moving coil cartridge, other cartridges may require a different setting
  • Turntable is picking up excessive vibrations or is not level
  • Condition of the record is poor

Please check all of the above in order to solve the issue.
