    Are you using the JVC L-A11 turn table that you previously had some questions about ? :idea:

    Waiting on a belt for the JVC .There's no use in putting it on at this time as I have it all apart lubricating,cleaning etc. Apparently someone with less knowledge than myself had it open. You know you can just tell sometimes when somethings been tampered with.

    The Kenwood KD-31F has a T4P-Pmount cartridge type tone arm.

    No much adjustment or alignment in the cartridge set up possible. :idea:

    I l don't see anymore adjustment on my JVC L-A11 than what you see here on the Kenwood .Unless there's things I'm not aware of which is very possible :)

    I got tired of screwing around with what I originally thought ,always go with your gut. The Sssnake sssound is permanently gone as I ditched the electro-voice stylus as well as the ADC cartridge in favor of an inexpensive AT95E for $49.95 Suffice it to say I'm happy, no more unexpected skips or snake sounds! All I had to do was plug that puppy in and adjust the VTA as this cartridge is considerably lighter. That's it! Now back to working on JVC L-A11 .
    And thanks so much guys for all the time and info you provided. I work on cars occasionally and sometimes you have to defie logic .In other words just because you changed the spark plugs "stylus" in my case,doesn't mean it's not faulty even if it is new!!!

    Perfect!
    Nothing like fine the root of the issue!

    I am still wondering which protactor did you use to align the cart.

    Ummm .... XLM-II being an integrated cart and headshell ... that doesn't look like what's on that turntable to me ... or am I missing things here? I see cartridge mounting screws. Also, if a swap was done to the AT95e, it had to be mounted in a headshell to do so and that wouldn't be possible for an integrated cart and headshell (unless a spare headshell was available of course). So ... what was the original ADC cartridge? Was the tracking force being set even anywhere in the correct ballpark?

    Ok I'm lost I'll assume that this pic is the stylus that is causing your SSSSSSSSS problem? Which is surprising as it looks like a genuine STXLMII Not to be confused with an XLMII

    Well to be honest I'm not sure what the cartridge is other than it is imprinted with ADC ,no #'s notta and I looked up an integrated cartridge and that's definitely not what I have.
    VTA 1.5
