I use the Knosti Disco Antistat Vinyl Record Cleaning Machine Cleaner Kit.
it does the job but i would like to get the Project Vacuum cleaning machine.
However the Knosti makes a big difference to most records.it comes with a stand for drying
that holds 15 lps i have another stand on the way that hots 20 allowing me to clean more at the same time.
however i know people like to clean records in many different ways
 so i guess it is what works for them. I would like to know how you clean your Vinyl.

I finally put together an ultrasonic cleaner, and then use a Nitty Gritty vacuum to remove the liquid.  I've found this to be, by far, the best way to get your vinyl as clean as possible.  I'll never go back to a just a wet brush or even a wet vacuum.  Here in the States, we can put together an ultrasonic cleaner for under $200, using a Chinese ultrasonic vat and a slow rpm motor.

We have a similar product to your manual system called Spin Clean, and they do a respectable job

However, if you do decide to get an ultrasonic cleaner, I think you'll find it money well spent.

Spin clean does the same job cleaning vinyl as my Knosti system. And they both give much the same results.I got an extra good buy on the Knosti otherwise i also would have also had the spin clean.

Saw this at the record store, double album plus booklet for $5.  NM-
... and once again, I got it home to discover I already had a copy.  Oh, well it's one of my wife's favorites, so one for me and one for her.

Yes, I thought exactly the same thing when I first heard it. I'll look for it on vinyl.

The Mario Biondi, Handful of Soul is just a sonic gem that will get your feet tapping and the pressing ,OMG, double LP .

 First Light by Freddie Hubbard won a Grammy and besides beautiful music is a superb LP , very quiet, great pressing.
