RE: Hiss/buzz noises in soprano voices

Is this a trend you notice with other LPs near the middle and inner grooves? The most likely cause would be tracking error. Also, the spherical tip has an inherent distortion that results in coarseness as you move to the inner grooves. You will find many saying that they don't have this problem - it depends on the music you are listening to and classical music especially orchestral tends to highlight deficiencies. Bcowen's suggestion of antiskate is also a prime candidate to examine. Since antiskate is proportional to the tracking error, I would be looking to verify your tracking alignment first.
