And ruined the record. If you have a needle that won't get damaged doing this (instead of a stylus which more likely will), you'll also ruin the record on a single playthrough, so you're scrod anyway.

You can talk about the high quality of vinyl or you can talk about adding weight to the tonearm, but not in the same sentence.
