if you have heard the Nothin’ Song, by Alice In Chains, you will know that it takes a minute for the ride symbol, and then the rest of the music to kick in. I turn up the receiver midway through just to see if there is any delay, timing issues between the actual needle, reading the data and the output of the stereo. The subwoofer is right next to the turntable on the right side, so it will sound weird and unbalanced a bit but that’s why.
