Novice Question - Normal Amount of Warp for New Record

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi there.  Just recently started purchasing records for a new turntable I received.  My main question is how much warp should be considered acceptable on new records?  I recently purchase several new records from my local shop, and about half have a bit of edge warp as shown in the linked video of Tame Impala InnerSpeaker.  I'v looked over a lot of posts online, but finding it hard to correlate what's minor vs. going to cause premature wear on my stylus.


I've noticed that the only new records that had an issue were packed as double gatefolds, so if it's normal I don't want to bother the store for an exchange.


Thanks in advance!!
