Over time you'll start to hear ticks and pops as the vinyl is gradually getting gouged in those areas. Better still is to play an entire album side straight through from beginning to end. Most audiophile grade turntables are not automatic which means they do not have an end of play lift mechanism. On most turntables, the cueing lever is located near the base of the tonearm. Using this fluid damped lever instead of your hand results in a smooth twitch-free needle drop, and lift from the record.
Do NOT stack vinyl records How do records get warped? One way is by stacking them. Never stack records on top of each other whether in their jackets or not. This is one sure fire way to cause warping, possible cracking of the vinyl record because of the weight, and will inevitably produce scuff marks and ring wear on the album cover marring the artwork. Records must always be stored upright like books on a shelf.

Keep your filthy paws off the playing surface of a record. Your T-shirt or towel is not a record cleaner Can I give my records a quick whisk with a towel? Resist the temptation to wipe your vinyl record with your shirt or dry cloth no matter how soft it may feel. This will scratch and scuff the record and only move the dirt around.
For dry cleaning or light touch up, use an anti-static record brush as it actually discharges static and lifts dirt without damaging the vinyl record. View step-by-step directions on how to clean records.
If it's not specifically labelled for use on vinyl records then please do NOT use it. Never use WD40, lubricants, or solvents of any kind on your records.
Never place or pick up a vinyl record as the turntable platter is spinning. This will quickly scratch the underside of a record. Always wait for the platter to come to a complete stop before doing anything with the record. If your turntable platter uses a rubber or felt mat then make sure it is clean before placing a record on top of it first.
