Custom updates to my Clearaudio DMP

Post by Peter Galbavy » 12 May 2018 13:43

A while back I asked about new spray tubes for my DMP from Clearaudio and also if they could make me a set specifically for 7" singles as the normal tubes just spray liquid nowhere in these cases.

Now the original spray tubes are made from a plastic and are sealed at one end and then the holes individually drilled by hand. I understand this is both a labour intensive process and also the tiny tiny drill bits are treated as disposable as they don't last that long.

On the newer DMP Sonic I believe they use a laser on steel tubes and after some discussion Clearaudio priced me up replacement tubes for my DMP made with the new technique.

The results are excellent so far. Also, more liquid is more evenly dispensed and instead of waiting one full turn while "spraying" I only need to apply the liquid for about 1/2 turn. Not yet tried the 7" custom tubes but at some point, when my "rearrange the house" tasks are done I will have time to tackle the huge backlog there too.

Here are some pics of the old and new tubes and how the arms come apart for the swap over.

Below you can see that the 7" tubes have just one spray hole each:

Not 100% happy with the way the small o-ring is pinched but it is not broken (I checked) but it appears to work this way. Any suggestions how else to mount them are welcome.
