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 Amazon.com: 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 Amazon.com: 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.

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
