Wonder no more Fred, I was simply foolish. Simple enough. In answer to another question, newish vinyl when played often enough get's dirty, even if it's not scratched it sounds dirty. I figured I would get them sounding better by running them through the machine. I have a great deal of older vinyl (well 200-250 LPs guess that's minor league to some). I normally clean using a wet brush system (currently AT). The problem is that takes FOREVER.. though, I've never had issues with destroying the quality of an LP. As far as technique goes you do own one of these correct? It's not exactly rocket science
I saw I'm not the first, and figured I better compound his warning, I wouldn't want anyone else having to go through the same thing, it's awful. Seems this could be a quality control issue for Spin Clean, though I washed the brushes and machine in warm water prior to use, so I can't imagine that there could have been anything as simple as dirt left on them. Dunno why this could happen with a machine made for cleaning vinyl, honestly don't care anymore, just bummed.
