I’ve just ordered......

Post by mrjaffa » 21 Oct 2019 23:49

..... the Project VCS MK2 cleaning machine. Read many positive things about it.

Gets delivered tomorrow and will be trying it out on a second hand John Lennon LP which is very noisey. And then probably go through my collection giving them all clean.

Probably need to buy some new sleeves too. It never ends........

Congratulations, I'm sure you'll be very pleased with the results. Yes, It never ends, soon you'ii arguing over what the best cleaning fluid is or which brush to use.(Just kidding),
All the best,
Tom

Well it arrived today guys... But I forgot to get any distilled water, so I now have to wait till I get some of that. Don’t think my local Tesco sells it, they might sell deionised water but I’ve read this is different and not as pure.

I would think that your locally available deionised water would be a suitable choice. If your interested in driving yourself completely crazy, here is a very well researched article on water purity as it pertains to record cleaning.

Most supermarkets and drugstores sell distilled water.

It appears that he lives in the UK, where I believe that, distilled is much harder to find than deionized.

I settled for Amazon. I did want some right away but I’ve got next day delivery so that will do. £8 for 1.5l...
Cheers :-)

Someday, these new Pro-Ject RCMs will be available in the US ... right? No sign of them so far.

Music Direct now has the VC-E for $499. That's disappointing. I had hoped that it would cost less than the VC-S for which it is supposedly the budget replacement. Note that in the UK, the VC-E sells for £299, which is roughly US$385.
