It’s Goldring’s top-of-the-range model but is it worthy of its position? To see the video, click:

Hi Paul – Great review! The record in your video is fairly off-centre. Can this cause any audible issues in playback?

Many thanks and it is , isn’t it? Never really noticed until I saw the angled shot. I’m sure I have other records like this but I haven’t heard anything terribly noticeable. Then again, this is a fairly high-energy record so it’s possible that masks any subtle imperfections. It would be good to A-B test such a thing but you’d need another record from the same pressed batch that was dead centre.

Thanks, Paul. I’m of the mind that it may cause distortion, albeit at a level I cannot perceive. I will however, if there is enough play around the spindle, nudge a record into a more concentric pattern. That’s how obsessive I’ve become with my vinyl listening!

…and there’s nothing wrong with obsessive vinyl listening.
