Played a recently bought used record which looked good and played good as well. It was only at the end that I got a little shock.
The run out did not hold the needle and it ran out onto the label.
Is there any way to judge the condition of the runout on a record?

This has also got me looking to invest in a tonearm lifter.

Have you checked the tracking force of your cartridge?

This has happened to me a couple of times. It freaks me out whenever it happens! However i've had varying results of the same record on different set ups, so it leads me to think that some carts are more susceptible to skipping to the label than others. Just a theory..

Thanks, I think I'll check the whole arm and cart setting

I don't think it's the cart or tonearm. In my case it happens in just one lp, leading me to believe that it's defective in the run out area.
