Maybe with enough money thrown in the R&D someone can find away to eliminate it. For the other 99% the antiskate (magnetic is my favourite) is a necessity of live, and a simple listening test on the inside grooves is explanation enough. What irritates me is your total buy in without question why the company left it off completely.
