If you're asking about the difference between "180gr vinyl and a [regular weight] coloured vinyl", then 180g usually has better sound quality when compared with the regular 120-140g vinyls. If you're comparing black and coloured vinyls, there is a small noticeable difference in sound quality. Let's look at the production of coloured vinyl [in order to ...

Let's start by saying, even if you could, it doesn't make a great deal of sense to have a heavy stereo split in the bass frequencies. Let's try to analyse why that would be... First, your directional senses are very poor at low frequencies, so assuming you were sitting slap bang in the middle of your huge hi-fi speakers you'd still barely be able to tell ...

While this isn't for your model, you'll get the idea since it likely has similar parts. Fixing Unstable Speed on Technics Turntable

I think there are two factors that are responsible for the phenomenon you describe: Lack of financial means. Neither of the metal bands you mentioned as bad examples are even close to the mainstream and are hence financially ill-equipped. They don't make much money with their music and - justifiably - don't expect massive sales; therefore the amount of ...

You mean the single click on the left, before the F# establishes itself, rather than the repeating tick on the right, which is hi-hat pedal? The more I listen to that it simply sounds like a mistake.
