Nobody has answered this, so at the very least I will say to make sure you clean the records.  :)       How to clean vinyl records

@ Taoist: good answer!

In general: the better the needle the more imperfections you can hear. I would suggest a low to medium cost moving coil type of needle

Ortofon or Shure are a very good choice
