If I was rich I'd want the newest, but I...

Can you disable the 120hz refresh?

Can you turn off the feature a lot of the new TV's have that make the image look plasticy and make film look like video? As I understand it, that's due to the 120HZ refresh rate.

It seems to be the RB250 tonearm but it doesn't say Thorens on the side.

No resistance that I can feel.

Something could have happened during the moves. But it seems more likely the problem is under use not overuse.

I've never experienced what you're suggesting. Phono's just need a preamp for non-phono inputs. I can use any of the analog inputs on my receiver and it sounds identical.
