RE: Well, it sounds like it is the tonearm and not the records. Sgreen

Thanks for your suggestion. I took a look at the owner's manual. It advises that the curved armrest may be rubbing against the tonearm. However, it is well clear of the tonearm. The other suggestion is that the headshell wires might be touching the record surface; however, these too are well clear.

Furthermore I have recently been playing a lot of vinyl, including old and new records and have not experienced any skipping on any of them. This would indicate that the tonearm is functioning properly and that there really is a glitch on the record surface of "Brothers in Arms". Which brings me back to my original question of how on earth could a good record that I have played many times and never abused spontaneously pick up a groove flaw that cannot be cleaned out and which causes skipping? By the way, I'm the only one who ever touches my records so there's no one else to blame.
