  1. @kffern In 4 years and after cleaning thousands of records the only problem I had with the 6lt tank was a wire to a transducer becoming unsoldered and this was easily fixed. Advantages of a 10lt bath are not such a tight fit for the records , tank is wider in both directions. more powerful heater an extra transducer, 6 lt has 3 transducers, 10 lt has 4 transducers Plus 10 lt tanks are presently about the same price as 6 lt. A few months ago, with an offer I got my 10lt bath for $144 including post. Not bad when the 6lt bath cost me $186 four years
  2. Cliff, "The Groove man" brings one along to the local record fairs, that he provides a record cleaning service at. So I have only heard it in a large room with lot's of people talking so a bit hard to judge the sound quality. But it does get good reviews. Noticed it has a internal speaker off switch but not sure if it can out put to external speakers.
  3. This is sold by some one I know in Brisbane and may be what you are after. https://www.thegrooveman.com/plus-audio https://www.forbes.com/sites/bradmoon/2019/11/17/review-the-record-player-a-compact-all-in-one-audio-system-with-a-pro-ject-turntable-and-killer-sound/?sh=334ba45ad7a2
  4. Tried this in Brisbane and I am imagining it got a lot hotter than 50% as the record ended up oval !!! 🙂
  5. Australian Quad version had two posters but unlike the UK version did not include the stickers. One poster is of the band members and the other is of pyramids. In the last thirty years I have owned and sold about forty Au copies of DSOTM and only about a fifth of those have been stereo copies. I believe the reason the Au quad copies have a higher value than the Au stereo copies is that the the opposite is true for UK copies, ie the stereo version is more prevalent as a UK pressing, making the Au quad copies have a higher value ,especially over seas. In the early nineties I
  6. I recon if you are talking about the $50 area label protectors, soft brush, over the sink, is probably the way to go. This one is in Australia $46.99 https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Vinyl-Record-Cleaner-Label-Saver-Protector-Disc-Waterproof-Keeper-for-Records/392867140901?hash=item5b78b4d525:g:~0kAAOSwFK1faF38 But I prefer this one from China, $47.29 as it has a handle. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Clear-Cleaning-Clamp-Label-Saver-for-Vinyl-Records-Waterproof-Clean-Protector/393181889494?hash=item5b8b7783d6:g:eHkAAOSw9vdgMoN4 Once your records are clean, the
  7. As with @candyflip comments, great you are getting in to the music but not quite sure why you think " vinyl is original Australian press, which meant using original UK master metal stamps! " "All original Australian presses, which meant UK or US master plates." First UK quad DSOTM had A1 - B1 stampers, not A-2 B-1 Title: The Dark Side of the Moon (Harvest Records SQ quadraphonic issue) Record Company: Harvest Records Catalog Number: Q4 SHVL 804 Matrix Information: (side 1 / side 2) A-1 / B-1: 1) QHVL 804 A-1 G 1 / QHVL 804 B-1 G 1 (both stamped) 2) QHVL 80
  8. Quad version is more common than the stereo version in Australia. Copies do go for around $70 and that is a bit odd when you can get a new copy for $45. Now if it was a UK first pressing, with both posters and stickers, in excellent condition, you would have some thing closer to black gold. https://www.discogs.com/Pink-Floyd-The-Dark-Side-Of-The-Moon/release/1873013 I have two copies 🙂
  9. Is it possible that the arm is partly restricted with some dirt. This would explain good suction with out the arm on the outlet. You could try blowing through the arm with an air line.
  10. 13 Versions listed on discogs. You should be able to work out what pressings you have from this. Although only one is Australian and labels are not shown. https://www.discogs.com/master/view/290519
  11. My spacers are again made of IKEA cutting boards with the darker ring coming from some other board I had laying around. They are cut with a 110mm hole saw. Rubber O ring is glued on so that the water level can go right up to the spacers and achieve maximum cleaning area ,with out getting the labels wet. I tried a number of different glues and the only one that worked was Bunnings generic Super glue, all others just let go, this one gives a strong bond and if you try to separate the some rubber stays stuck to the board. https://www.bunnings.com.au/utility-3g-super-g
  12. It is four years since I made my URCM and I had a feeling that perhaps one transducer had failed. Looking online 10lt baths now appear to be cheaper than 6lt, so I thought I would go in that direction. With an offer I got my 10lt bath for $144 including post. Not bad when the 6lt bath cost me $186 four years back. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/New10L-Liter-Ultrasonic-Cleaners-Cleaning-Equipment-Industry-Heated-Heater-Timer/113382730381?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131231084308%26meid%3D4c10125d14014f72ab08c6ac7299e20f%26pid%3D100010%26rk%3D3%
  13. The actual turntable is likely to have been brought in by HMV. Should have a name on it. This will probably enable you to find a manual and information on it. Just noticed BSR on the bottom of the cart so probably one of their decks.
  14. Looks like the Ultrasonic baths have come down in price again from $213 to $160 including post. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/10L-Ultrasonic-Cleaners-Cleaning-Equipment-Liter-Industry-Heated-W-Timer-Heater/192801202538?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20201210111314%26meid%3D80f5715ee72e4a8ba25cd3e6c1180f75%26pid%3D101195%26rk%3D6%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dco%26sd%3D264155991076%26itm%3D192801202538%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DSimplAMLv5PairwiseWebWithDarwoV3BBEV2b%26brand%3DVEVOR&_trksid=p2047675.c101195.m1851 But after putting a 1
