  1. DIY Ultrasonic Record Cleaner

    Yes I would have to agree, bloody noisy! I think I will need to have industrial ear plugs on when using mine.
  2. Thanks for the invite but just saw the response. Unfortunately I have a list to complete by the end of today.

    The Jan Garbarek Group for a pleasant Sunday afternoon listening. A great line up with- Jan Garbarek on Sax. Bill Connors - Guitar John Taylor - Piano Eberhard Weber - Bass Jon Christensen - Drums
  4. A fantastic instrument from a great Australian maker. We would never part with the Buttrose that we own at work.
  5. Supratek Preamp Owner Opinions/Discussion

    The response from Mick is honest and transparent without even needing to expose the internals. A wonderful sounding preamp that deserves the highest praise. But that's just my opinion. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Getting better, cleaned around 30 records yesterday and played some last night and today with great results. I used the 10% diluted triton X mixture only. I ended up adding 7 to 8 ml of the mixture into the tank at a 25 minutes cycle. I thought about using my VPI 16.5 for drying but just let them dry naturally in the end.

    Thank you very much for both the replies. Cleaning at the moment, will see what happens at the end of the day!

    Thanks for that, all becoming much clearer. How often do you replenish or add more of the triton X stock mixture of 0.1% - 0.2% in a cleaning session?

    I own Owens US module and cleaner and have cleaned at least 40 records thus far but have not been overly impressed with the results. As a novice in this US cleaning regime I have tried to follows Owens instructions as closely as possible but I have a feeling that I'm still not doing this correctly. I need to get this right as I have a large collection to clean. I have no issues with the module or the cleaner just the triton X mixture. It would be great if the following could be clarified- - the exact triton X concentrate and the proportion for dilution? -the exact amount of triton X diluted into a 6 litre US cleaner? As Owen has stated previously the amount of water required is about 4.5 litres. I have had the US cleaner on for 25 minutes for each cleaning session. Thanks
  11. Just received my new Supratek from Mick yesterday. Absolutely magnificent preamp, this is the second Cortese that I have owned in the last 15 years.
  12. Best ripping & tagging software for Mac?

    I moved from XLD to dbpoweramp and found it a more user friendly interface.
  13. Best ripping & tagging software for Mac?

    I use dbpoweramp on Mac for ripping. Works very well.
  14. Fantastic amps if had not just purchased a preamp I would be all over these!

    A great album, especially on vinyl.
