Welcome Licorice Pizza (LP) lovers! Setup guides and Vinyl FAQ.

I had a listening session yesterday...

With the new dust cover in place. I applied sorbothane sheeting to the rear of the lower half of the dust cover. I also put some silicone gel feet under the dust cover.

The results were the dust cover had no side effects to playback, even at high volume listening levels. I listened to a mint Warner Pioneer pressing of Leon Russel's Carney, a like new Warner Pioneer pressing of Emerson, Lake and Palmer's first LP and an original CBS/Sony pressing of Chicago 2.

There was nothing that smeared the image placement nor was there anything that effected feedback related issues. In short the dust cover is great.

I still have one more tweak to be applied to the dust cover. I have some 2 inch wide 3/8 thick sorbothane strips to be placed under the bottom edges of the dust cover. It won't improve anything, since nothing needs improvement, but it ensures nothing will enter the turntable via the dust cover.
