So my brand new Pro-ject VC-S2 ALU has just arrived and I already have a concern even before cleaning my first record.
I assembled it as instructed and just checked that everything is working as expected.
What I noticed is that, when rotating, the spindle is not perfectly straight but translates a bit in position leading to the platter showing about a 1 millimeter difference in edge height as it rotates.
I also checked with a spirit level. At some points it is perfectly dead on straight and then rotate it a quarter and 1 mm off.
Is this something to be concerned about? Or is this kind of error acceptable ?
