When removing the stylus cover, do not touch the stylus. Damage caused to the stylus by mishandling is not covered by the guarantee. When balancing the tone-arm it is important that the stylus never contacts the turntable platter, mat or base.

Note: An incorrect tracking weight can have a significant effect on the quality of the audio when playing records. If the tracking weight is set too low or too high then excessive wear to the stylus or damage to the surface of the record may be caused.
