Thanks for the review Promee. Us analog guys appreciate you sharing your experience and I will have to check it out one day. Looks like it would work great with my VPI 16.5.
Ultrasonic vinyl cleaning has been a thing here at AC for a long time. Even the DIY thread has been around since 2014 ( https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=127810.0 ) . I'd say moving from vacuum cleaning to ultrasonic cleaning is like doubling or tripling your budget for your cartridge. It's just a major step up in what you hear. The early adapters with the devotion or the bucks bought in with the expensive early commercial units. Then us cheapskates made our own. Now, the commercial units are at a level that any moderately serious vinyl afficianado can afford one. If you spin vinyl and have moved past your college Dual 1219 table and your Shure M97 cartridge, you need an ultrasonic cleaner. I'll add my warning, again. Ultrasonic means you can't hear the primary cleaning frequency. Audiologist are still undecided if the extremely loud volume, up to 140dB, that you can't hear can result in hearing damage. Play it safe and leave the room, or use ear muffs when cleaning records.
A search for CleanerVinyl has a complete system popping up on Amazon for $629 + shipping. Maybe I'm missing something
Maybe it’s the 1 or 3 disc version - mine is the 6. And some do not include the filter, so fluid will have to be changed every few batches... Those are the two differentiators I can think of...
After a little more investigation, the missing ingredient seems to be the cleaning tank itself. So the Amazon ad is just a bit deceptive unless you look to the photo breakdown on the left that highlights the parts you get for $629. The bottom line is that CleanerVinyl's package deal now seems to be a tad more attractive.
Thx again. If I were to proceed, I'd most likely just do their bundle. I like the idea of the filter you mention. Now to figure out where to store this thing when not in use. BTW, did you do a comparison to the Kirmuss in regard to convenience, etc.?
