So ?Disco-antistat? maintains disc value perfectly. But most of all, it is a joy to hear your old record collection sounding like new! Suitable for 33, 45 and 78 rpm records.

Straight out of the box, the Knosti doesn't really look anything special. The plastic is very cheap looking but don't let that put you off; it's a great machine.

My main advice is DON'T USE THE SUPPLIED FLUID. It certainly cleans records but leaves a sticky residue behind it which slowly but surely gunks up your stylus tip. Believe me, this happened to me. The solution is cheap and simple. Make up your own fluid using 700ml lukewarm water, two drops of washing-up liquid and a cap of distilled malt vinegar. I've used this and it works great. Pour the fluid away and make up a new jug for every batch of 15 records.

I'd recommend the Knosti to anyone who has a lot of secondhand records of dubious provenance. Some real old clunkers in my collection came up shining after a run through the Knosti. It's the only practical budget solution to those ridiculously priced vacuum cleaner efforts.

Further advice: After cleaning, leave your records to dry for approx 1 hour then put them away into new poly-lined inner sleeves. If you've got plain paper ones then bin them.

When looking for a cleaner for my vinyl collection all I could find were cleaners costing several hunderd pounds.When I found this cleaner I thought I might as well "Give it a try" and did not expect too much from such a simple machine.
I started to clean some albums as soon as the cleaner arrived,and was truly amazed at just how clean this simple little machine gets your vinyl.I had a few singles with slight Haze scratches,after cleaning they had all but gone and the record now played like it did when new.
I would highly recommend this cleaner,have since cleaned 200+ singles and 150 albums,and still have plenty of solution left.

I bought this after alot of consideration over what to buy to clean my old collection of LPs which I've started playing again. There are numerous brushes etc out there but I felt it needed a good deep clean - enter the Disco-Antistat.

The product is well made, and it does make a really nice job. The record 'bath' has lines of goat hair that really work into the grooves of the records.

A word of warning, however - DO NOT use, under any circumstances, the fluid they provide. It says that it evaporates, but it doesn't - and on the first play you'll notice a white buildup on your stylus. It is far easier to mix your own cleaning solution, which isn't as difficult as it sounds! From another poster on here, I picked up the recipe for - 400ml water, 2 drops of household washing up liquid and a cap of malt vinegar. Make it new every 15 or so records.

Also make sure to empty the bath into the filter paper between records, otherwise you're just washing them in dirty water!

Well worth considering - the LPs I tested sound much better. The crackle hasn't completely gone, but it's much less noticable. Records formerly unplayable will now play.

As a vinyl collector I was very happy to see this record cleaner on Amazon and at a good price ! I followed the guide and let the vinyls dry for two days after washing just to be sure. Initial thoughts were great...I had just cleaned about 12 vinyls and they all looked shiny and as good as new.

I played the record and noticed a white granual / fluff start to build up on my Ortofon concorde needle after a few bars of the tune and half way through thought enough with this. So I cleaned the needle (these don't come cheap you know...) and started to play the vinyl from the beginning again. The white build up was still present and I proceeded to re-clean my stylus.

I stared down at my other vinyl I had cleaned and didn't feel too happy as I knew I was going to have to re-clean these records with a completely different cleaner.

I did play a couple of other records I had cleaned with the "Disco-Antistat" record cleaner and the same white sludge formed on my stylus.

I am really disappointed to say the least as the instructions clearly state that the cleaning solution evaporates. It might evaporate after an initial inspection i.e holding the vinyl under a light (the record surface looks as good as new!) but a dried solution stays in the record grooves. This defeats the object in my opinion.

I must admit, before I purchased this I did a little background research on the net but only found nice comments like the other two on this site. I did find one bad comment but my need for a cleaner persuaded me the person must have just used it wrongly.

How wrong I was.

For the love of vinyl...

Disco Antistat works very well even on heavily soiled records.
It can be a bit messy so best done in the kitchen or on a surface that is OK to get wet.
I have found that the stated drying time is optimistic.. it takes an hour or so for all the cleaning fluid to evaporate off the record surface. A fan might speed things up but I haven't tried it.
Not all of the dirt and gunge is removed from the grooves by the built in brushes.. you will have sludge build up on your stylus so it will need cleaning after playing each side.. this does depend on how dirty the record is in the first place. The amount of loosened dirt collected reduces after each play so eventually the problem goes away.
Really filthy records may need 2 or 3 cleaning operations, allow the fluid to evaporate between cleans.
You don't need to buy the expensive own brand cleaning fluid, you will find various reciepes on the web. The basic formula is 4 parts distilled water 1 part isoprpyl alchohol ( Propan-2-ol ) and a few drops of Ilfotrol photographic wetting agent.
This cleaner is an excellent solution for anyone that doesn't want to spend loads of money on a vacuum based system like VPI / Townshend etc.
