don't stress it too much, from my understanding they are quite hardy, as long as you didn't drop or scratch them should be ok. enjoy the music!

In my book, the hierachy of contributions to overall sound quality from most to least is : 1. Turntable   2. Tonearm   3. Phono stage    4. cartridge  Others will have a different opinion

I have this in my system for a few days already, so far its awesome and way above my expectations. Pure sound quality alone, think you all are right to say that it's cheaper to get good sound from an analogue setup compare to digital setup. And it has that indescribable charm that can just draw you into the music. Don't think I will just dump my 20+k digital setup for analogue as the convenience is still important to me, but probably going forward will spend more time to understand analogue and stuff. And buy more records of course. 🙂

Your journey is not done yet Bro. 
 

Now you will need a good record cleaning machine (RCM).  With a good RCM, the pops and clicks will be banished.  And if the RCM is equipped with static removal then even better.

 

Using my RCM, I got cleaner stylus and very little dust on my records.

 

I will rate RCM as money well spent.

Yup at some point will probably get one.. at this juncture the folks at audio atelier had kindly offered to help me do so if i need any records to be cleaned. 🙂

Any good RCM to recommend? I personally believe ultrasonic do a better cleaning job but heard it would impact the sound!

@BlurRhino At the end of the cleaning cycle, there is the static removal cycle. I will have the vinyl spin 3-5 rounds. And it is sufficient to have the lp free of static. 
 

I hardly need to clean my stylus. Plus my Zerostat Milty has not been used since I got this RCM

Thanks for sharing, i was looking at these different RCM options and it all required quite a fair bit of space.. So far seems like only Degritter fits the space i have but will continue to look around.

Personally went thru the the many different methods and designs of RCM. 

Agree that ultrasonic method is ‘theoretically’ effective.

I even tried a MIC ultrasonic cleaner and although there were improvements to lessen the noise (clicks crackles & pops), I was certain it was not the full solution. 
IMHO a RCM must also have a good vacuum suction, just like a Loricraft. That’s probably the best (only?) way to get the stuff off the grooves. 
And that’s how I ended up with the Clearaudio
