If so, how is it?

 

I have a reasonable collection now and want to keep them clean. I have a Spin Clean but find it slow and annoying to use and unless you obsessively rinse and dry after it seems to leave crap behind.

 

 

 

This looks like a decent option https://realgroovy.co.nz/product/492174/ultrasonic-record-cleaner-with-motorized-rotisseri and should be effect in theory without need to brush/scrub the surface of the disk. I am certainly impressed every time my optician runs my specs through their ultrasonic cleaner.

 

Thing is, it seems to be a generic or re-branded device and I have only found one "review" online so far which was a on a vinyl forum. Whilst it was positive, I would like to get more information before dropping $900....

Spin Clean is rubbish.

 

Ultrasonic cleaners can be very effective but should not be viewed as miracle workers.

 

Dirty records still require agitation of the cleaning solution, i.e. scrubbing, looks like whoever designed the RG system recognises this and includes a Spin Clean type thingy for pre-cleaning.

 

They are effective but you also need to organise a drying regimen.

 

Look up Kirmuss record cleaner, which is the ultimate of this sort of machine.

 

For local information go to the Dark Lantern Audio Forum where there is a very informative thread on DIY Ultra Sonics.
