This review is from: Knosti Disco Anti Static Record Cleaning Machine (Latest model) (Electronics)
I have deliberately waited a few weeks before sounding forth on this device bearing in mind mixed views have been expressed in the past.
It has exceeded my expectations!
Such a simple device and easy to operate, yet it has been very well designed to do the job. It takes a little practice to unscrew and remove the clamps after washing but I suspect everyone will tackle that task differently. I have been constantly surprised how much improved records are after cleaning, and wish I had invested in a machine years ago. I suspect that most surface noise is caused by static and this machine is very good at removing it. One record I was about to take to a charity shop was so improved I was able to list it and sell it on Ebay as in excellent condition. So what about the cleaning fluid?
After cleaning some 30 or more discs I have seen no sign whatsoever of the white gunge other reviewers have mentioned - perhaps the formulation of the fluid has been changed. I know of someone who, rather than pay for replacement fluid, makes up his own concoction. From memory it's something like a pint of beer, a bottle of syrup of figs and a cupful of cat urine. Well I would rather stick to the Knosti fluid even though it's pricey. Pricey? My calculations suggest a cost of about 10/12p per side, so maybe it's a price worth paying after all.
