    Turntable has a built in pre-amp, and I've set it to the right setting to connect to my mini-amp (not a receiver). I doubt that's the issue, but who knows.

    New records came today. They sound much better but there’s still a faint crackle/static there. I can’t tell if it’s just the norm for vinyl (which I know isn’t perfect sound) or if something isn’t right. The fact that it varies by record makes me think it’s just normal and due to dust/dirt but I’m second guessing everything at this point.

    I know nothing about nothing but if you played a bunch of old/dirty/whatever records is it worth trying a new needle?

    Well it’s a brand new cartridge and needle, and I’ve only played 3-4 hours of music on it total so I’m hoping that wasn’t the root cause.
