The VRII can reduce background noise on worn records. The problem is easily 
fixed with the VRII - a modern design for a replacement  stylus is all that 
would be required to deal with the low compliance of the current design. 
Also self centering could be built into the design - Mickey

Experience tells me that VRII will leave the grooves in worse condition with 
each playing. As a teen I loved the one I had but the records hated it!
