RCM or Record Cleaning Machines

Useful, not useful?
Conventional ones from VPI to Loricraft, cheaper alternatives like Okki, Nitty Gritty, Moth, Pro-Ject.
Ultrasonic ones?

Whic one do you use or like best? (including Shellcs please!)

Many people find record-cleaning machines useful; I'm neither here nor there about them, except in the case of shellac records.

Shellac records are so fragile that I prefer to clean them by hand on a cloth-covered table. Remember not to use an alcohol solution on shellac records; shellac dissolves in alcohol.

BTW, Nitty Gritty is no longer in business. I gather a lot of people were VERY disappointed when they discovered this.

Been using this for the past two years Record Doctor V - Record Cleaning Machine: Home Audio & Theater Manual with vacuum. Seems to work well for the task intended. A little over the top is this one Audio Desk Systeme Premium Ultrasonic Vinyl Cleaner PRO: Electronics and one of my good friends who owns 10,000 LPs uses this one Keith Monks – KMAL – Record Cleaning Machine – RCM – RecordCleaning – Vinyl LP and he is very happy with it. Another over the top is this one Klaudio - KD-CLN-LP200 Ultrasonic Record Cleaning Machine and if you have the $5,000 to spend on one you are probably NASA or a really dedicated record connoisseur.

As with most things it is up to the user to select the one they need and can afford.

Lives for gear

Good thread, thinking of getting a wet cleaner for the new room as I keep getting micro dust I can't get out with rubbing alcohol
