    Discwasher D4 Vinyl Record Cleaner

    A favorite among collectors for many years. Use the brush dry or wet with the included 1.25 oz. fluid. The more active, yet safe, D4+ fluid is actually able to lift and suspend contaminants in solution on the record surface so the D4 pad can easily and efficiently remove debris.


    The D4+ Record Care System is the result of intensive scientific research on safe record cleaning. The D4+ System is a cleaning system unlike other products, which reduce record dynamics and fidelity. The more active, yet safe, D4+ fluid is actually able to lift and suspend contaminants in solution on the record surface so the D4 pad can easily and efficiently remove debris. Containing less residue than tap water, D4+ fluid will clean without depositing new residues on the record surface; it will not encourage any biological growth as do constantly damp cleaning methods.

    For longer life, Discwasher recommends that records be lightly cleaned each time before playing. New records should also be cleaned before their first play. Although presumed clean, many new recordings still have mold release compounds in their grooves, thus requiring cleaning.


    HAND CRAFTED
    The handle of the Discwasher D4+ Record Care System has been hand crafted and finished from solid American walnut, creating elegance for an already superior cleaner.


    INSTRUCTIONS FOR ROUTINE PRE-PLAY CLEANING


    Application

    Apply 3-6 drops of the D4+ fluid in a line on the leading edge of the pad (the arrow on the end of the handle points to the leading edge). Distribute the fluid along the leading edge of the pad using several deliberate strokes with the bottom of the D4 bottle, causing the pad to form a strip of damp fabric.


    Position

    Position the disc washer handle/pad with the arrow end on the outside edge of the record. Gently contact the record with the damp leading edge of the pad. The turntable motor may be assisted by gently turning the record with you finger on the label.


    Clean/Dry

    Allow the damp leading edge to contact the record for about three revolutions. Dry the record with a simple rolling movement of the handle, allowing for the middle and back edge to contact the album for several revolutions, assuring thorough drying.

    • Simply the finest record cleaner available.
    • Cleans records while retaining fidelity.
    • 1.25 fl. oz. D4 recording cleaning fluid.

    Ultra Systems A-Rings (Set)

    7 And 10 Adapter Rings For Use With The Vinyl Cleaner


    A set of two adapter rings allowing 7 and 10 discs to be cleaned in the Vinyl Cleaner. Packaged like a double LP for convenient storage when not in use. This is a product developed by Ultra Systems together with Vinh Vu at Gingko Audio who works with acrylics.


    This product addresses two specific challenges:


    1. Although notionally 7 and 10 these discs actually vary significantly from these diameters making the development of one size fits all adapters very difficult. The design we came up with should work for almost all 7 and 10 discs,


    2. Because 7 and 10 discs have different sizes of center labels than 12 LP's, the outer diameter of the adapter rings cannot actually be 12. Once again finding a happy medium to adapt the entire spectrum of discs was a challenge.

    Product Editors Stereophile


    ...The most effective, easy-to-use record-cleaning machine I've ever tried.

    - Michael Fremer, Stereophile, June 2012


    Cleaning Time: 5 minutes

    Size: 13w x 8 d x 10.7 h (33cm w x 20cm d x 27cm h)

    Weight: 12lbs (5.5kg)

    Cleaning Solution: 4.5 liters (1.2 gal) of distilled water added to 20ml of cleaning concentrate.


    The Vinyl Cleaner PRO is the next generation, upgraded version of the award-winning ultrasonic LP cleaning system. Incorporating five years of evolutionary enhancements in addition to important upgrades to internal component parts, the Vinyl Cleaner PRO offers better features and performance, and also promises better reliability.


    Features of the new Vinyl Cleaner PRO include better, quieter drying, a new premium motor, an upgraded pump with ceramic bearings, and improvements to the electronic control system including a dry-only option.


    The Audio Desk Systeme Vinyl Cleaner Pro is the latest version of the first and only record cleaning machine that incorporates an ultrasonic cleaning cycle in addition to a more conventional mechanical cleaning via bi-directional rotating microfiber cleaning drums, and the result is the cleanest LP's ever. Unlike other record cleaners the ultrasonic Vinyl Cleaner bursts millions of microscopic bubbles off the surface of the record all the way to the bottom of the groove, where no fiber is fine enough to reach. And among LP cleaners the Audio Desk System Vinyl Cleaner is unique in using filtered air for drying, rather than one of the static-inducing suction systems employed by other record cleaning machines.


    This vinyl record cleaner is fully automatic - just put the LP in the slot, push the button, and come back in 6 minutes (or tomorrow!) for a thoroughly cleaned and dried LP (both sides). Whole new layers of inner detail and air are revealed in the recordings, and of course most surface noise is eliminated.


    Comes with 2 vials of a proprietary cleaning fluid developed specifically for this machine. A container of the fluid concentrate plus a gallon of distilled water cleans 150 new LP's, or 100 used LP's.


    Records are precious. Not only are they arguably the best-sounding medium for reproduced music, but they often constitute irreplaceable collections. Even with careful handling contamination cannot be avoided in the long term. It is also well known that residual compounds from the LP pressing process obscure inner detail unless removed by cleaning even new records.


    Reiner Glass of Audiodesksysteme has developed a professional quality, easy to use record washing machine he call the Vinyl Cleaner. The Vinyl Cleaner is fully automatic. The record is placed perpendicularly from above into the equipment opening and the red activation button is pressed. When the green LED shines, the clean LP can be removed. During the cleaning process rotary cleaning barrels made from a microfiber material move in opposite directions while a unique ultrasonic system carefully and thoroughly removes even the finest contaminants from the grooves. In use the cleaning solution is thoroughly filtered to avoid recontamination of the LP. Two high performance fans guarantee effective drying with quiet operation.


    Technical: How can sound clean?


    Ultrasonic is sound generated above the human audible level.


    A physical effect called cavitation results from the generation of ultrasonic frequencies in a liquid. In this cavitation process ultrasonic compression waves are created by an ultrasonic transducer. When the amplitude of this soundwave increases to a level where the surface tension of the liquid is broken, the fluid will tear apart leaving behind millions of microscopic vacuum bubbles. These vacuum bubbles then rapidly compress or implode creating millions of tiny liquid jets small enough to clean inside the smallest grooves of an LP. This process, also called microagitation, displaces any contaminants on the surface of the LP.

    AudioQuest Conductive Record Brush


    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    Back in 1973, I became a dedicated user of the Decca Carbon Fiber Record Brush. The British Decca Brush was so wonderfully more effective than any of the wet-cloth-pad cleaners that smeared dirt around on one's records.


    As often happens to truly superior products, the Decca Brush was mostly ignored - the overall record-cleaning market was dominated by cleaning pads attached to wood handles - not because they worked well, but because many hi-fi stores preferred to sell a cleaner that forced customers to come back to buy "special" fluid, again and again.


    After creating AudioQuest in 1980, and with the wild success of the AQ 404 phono cartridge in 1982, and because I personally used a Carbon Fiber record brush every single day - AudioQuest began making the AQ Carbon Fiber Record Brush - now a 35-year old success story, and maybe the world's favorite way to respect and care for LPs.


    Except - we eventually learned that the AQ Record Brush (and every other brand of carbon Fiber brush), doesn't have a good electrical path between the fibers and the handle, and that the print-protecting coating on the metal handle prevents a proper electrical connection to the user's hand. The user is the "ground" for static electricity, so having a good electrical contact from fibers-to-hand is a big deal!


    In creating AQ's new Conductive Carbon Fiber Brush, AudioQuest created new tooling for every part of our new design. AQ's reborn Brush has ideal conductivity from the Carbon Fibers, through the internal parts of the brush, to the conductive Gold Contacts placed right where your fingers need them.


    We also reinvestigated what is possible with Carbon Fibers, finally choosing for our new Brush a far greater quantity of new smaller fibers in order to more effectively sweep away micro-dirt, not just the less relevant visible dust.


    To everyone who has an AQ Record Brush (thank you), or any brand of Carbon Fiber brush, and to everyone who hasn't yet discovered how simple it is to keep records clean:


    We invite you to experience the reborn AudioQuest Conductive Record Brush.


    Your records will thank you!


    • Safe, fast, and effective tool for removing dust and debris from vinyl records
    • Conductive carbon fiber bristles and conductive gold contacts remove microscopic dust before it becomes embedded in the vinyl
    • Keeps records sounding like new
    • Also perfect for computer keyboards and much more

    Extremely capable wet cleaning machine that removes dirt and dust from your valuable records


    VC-S is a radical new development. There are features which are new for record cleaning machines in this price range:


    • It is super powerful and cleans a record in 1 max 2 rotations (best is 1 turn forward, 1 turn backward)

    • Robust metal arm, which is easy to use, mechanically stable fixing! (no springs)
    • Big container (2.5 l) for used fluid, that shows fill-up capacity and guarantees no spillage of used cleaning fluid. Discharging of used fluid is extremely easy to do.
    • Newly developed vinyl cleaning concentrate Wash it offers very good cleaning results and reduces static charge, so record wear as well as stylus wear is significantly reduced.

    Collision Blonde

    The band's sophomore full length is backed by guitarist Will Allard, bassist Joseph Goode and drummer Ben Sears (who also plays alongside Allard in Whips/Chains). With a new line-up and some years removed from their young, violent hardcore days, Collision Blonde's instrumental prowess sounds less like their elder contemporaries and more a cleaner tone reminiscent of Jesus and Mary Chain and The Cure, yet sharp and uneasy in the vein of Bauhaus' early gothic post-punk edge. Tracks like "Knife" and the closing "Nosedive" are aggressively built up into a cathartic release, alluding to Ceremony, Iceage and mewithoutYou at times.


    The band took a couple of weeks, held up in Allard's basement studio in late March, to record with fellow musician and friend Evan Weiss (You Blew It!, The Jazz June) who helped produce the album. While the music may allude to a heavier dream pop sound, it's still very much a hardcore record reminiscent of Dischord's blends of punk and harmony. Collision Blonde is a lyrical wreck that's driven by love, drugs, depression and waking up in a cold sweat wondering What's next for me? on a consistent basis. It's thoughtfully countered with a harmonic jangle of reverb, delay and hooks, as Xerxes has created their most polarizing work to date.

    Mobile Fidelity PLUS Enzyme LP Cleaning Fluid

    Mobile Fidelity PLUS Enzyme LP Cleaning Fluid Removes All Organic Materials Embedded in the Grooves of Your Precious Vinyl Records. Nothing on the Market Works as Well to Remove Oils, Sweat, Smoke and Mold!


    Mobile Fidelity PLUS Enzyme Cleaner for all Vinyl LPs is a revolution in record cleaning! PLUS uses enzymes to more completely clean records than any other fluid we've found.


    Most sound degrading contaminants found on records are organic in nature, oils and sweat from hands, skin, hair and other minuscule particles of dust are attracted by electrostatic charges on the vinyl and can become deeply embedded in the vinyl. The best way to remove these is with an enzyme specifically designed for this purpose. By coating the play surface with PLUS Enzyme Cleaning Fluid and allowing it to sit on the record surface for 3-5 minutes, the enzymes will break the particles down and loosen them from the grooves.


    Highly purified, high surface tension water is used as the base for PLUS - water that will bead up, removing contaminants and holding them in the water beads, rather than allowing them to settle back into the grooves.


    Using PLUS is a revelation, even on a clean record, the improvement is shocking. Drastically lower noise floor, increased dynamic range, richer tonal balance and clear undistorted peaks. Put simply, PLUS reveals more of the information that's been hiding in the grooves.


    To get the most out of PLUS, we highly recommend using Mobile Fidelity PURE Record Rinse. PURE is ultra-pure water that has gone through four stages of deionization, after which it is triple-distilled, then treated with high intensity ultraviolet light to kill all bacteria and microbiological particles. This intense and thorough process leaves nothing in PURE to harm your vinyl.


    Mobile Fidelity has a history of setting industry standards. We are the first to provide this quality of care in our base and rinse water. The ultraviolet light purification sets the bar for the competition to once again play catch-up. Call us today to learn more about how analog lovers can benefit from Mobile Fidelity PLUS Enzyme Cleaning Fluid.

    Chasing Someday

    Seven years ago, when Drew Holcomb graduated from college in Knoxville, TN he never expected he would spend his twenties touring the country playing music, but that is exactly what he and his band, the Neighbors, have been doing since coming together in 2006. Since that time, they have secured placements on shows like Parenthood, Army Wives and The Cleaner while selling over 35,000 records all without the help of a label. A devoted fan base has fueled the anticipation for this career defining album, Chasing Someday. USA Today calls Holcomb Soulful folk-rock and these 12 sides don't disappoint.

    Doolittle

    Ranked 226/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    For the follow up to their classic 1988 debut Surfer Rosa, the Pixies brought in producer Gil Norton (Echo & The Bunnyment, Patty Smith, Foo Fighters) and the results were equally as brilliant if not superior to its predecessor. Doolittle boasted a cleaner sound and received excellent reviews, which led to greater exposure in America. Both a benchmark and a timeless monument, the album brazenly mixes
    surf-pop and grunge, with schizophrenic pacing and head banging jolts. Cited as one of the quintessential alternative rock albums of the '80s by Rolling Stone, Doolittle is undoubtedly one of the most epic and influential indie rock albums of all time. Highlights include Monkey Gone To Heaven, Wave Of Mutilation, Here Comes Your Man, Debaser and Hey among others.

    Money Talks (Awaiting Repress)

    Alongside other pioneering crossover acts like New York's S.O.D., Texas' D.R.I., and fellow Californians Suicidal Tendencies, Santa Monica's Cryptic Slaughter was influenced in equal parts by the lessons of political punk rock and no-holds-barred thrash metal. On its 1986 debut, Convicted, the quartet had opened a significant door, pushing hardcore into realms of sheer speed and furious hatred it had only flirted with in the past. So how in hell were they supposed to top this unbelievably crude but crucial document? Well, longtime fans will always bicker over favorites, but there seems to exist a split decision between that landmark first effort and its worthy successor, 1987's Money Talks. Defenders of the latter will probably tell you that Money Talks, with its cleaner production, more piercing lyrics, and varied tempos, struck the perfect balance between Convicted's innocent primitivism and the excessive refinement of third opus Stream of Consciousness. But the truth is that these differences seem both minimal and trivial after all these years; let's drop the subject and let the music do the talking. On Money Talks, Cryptic Slaughter's self-mandated crusade against the system begins with the album's Reagan-bashing cover artwork. From there on out, standout tracks like the title track, Wake Up, Freedom of Expression?, and All Wrong pack just as much power and intensity, if not outright insanity, as earlier Cryptic Slaughter favorites. One department they'd definitely improved in was Bill Crooks' lyrics, which proved even more intelligent and incisive this time around without sacrificing any of the brute conviction in his delivery. Simply put, with its tightly wound construction highlighting the nervous tension between punk and metal at euphoric new levels, Money Talks remains a peerless example of '80s hardcore.

    Reissue of their 5th studio album, originally released in 1972. Album reached #31 on the US Album Charts and is RIAA-Certified GOLD. Includes the singles "Blind Eye" and "Sweet Lorraine.



    Loosely based on a story by Ken Hensley, The Magician's Birthday continues Uriah Heep's adventurous immersion into fantasy worlds at a time when similarly sci-fi pop-culture releases such as Star Wars and Dungeons and Dragons were still years away. Influential in concept, appearance, and sound, the 1972 record remains a thematic bookend to Demons and Wizards, released the same year and, akin to this set, recognized as the group's high-water mark.


    Both records resonate with a newfound vitality in a 21st century engrossed in a resurgence in comic-book superheroes and gothic tales. Pursuing a more streamlined, cleaner sound that scales back harder arrangements and accentuates prog-rock and blues elements, the British band accentuates texture and hooks throughout. Uriah Heep attains a dynamic balance between brief, punchy fare (Spider Woman) and spooky, cosmic piano balladry (Echoes in the Dark), with guitarist Mick Box supplying versatile leads and underlying narratives with exceptional tonal shadings.


    Space-rock synthesizers and subtle xylophones help in further setting the moods. The Magician's Birthday skirts the parody that befell many albums that copied its formula by way of fine-tuned songwriting, David Byron's passionate singing, and cohesive playing. Groups ranging from Iron Maiden to Emerson Lake and Palmer drew from its example. Boasting arguably the strongest production of Uriah Heep's career, the record exudes early 70s warmth and organic sonics.


    As soon as your turntable's needle hits the grooves, an era renowned for wood-encased receivers, tube amplifiers, and vintage instruments will emerge in front of your eyes. Whether it's the whirring organ and eerie frequency effects on the crunchy FM radio favorite Sweet Lorraine or the ringing bells on the epic multi-part title track, The Magician's Birthday pulls you into its spell with ethereal power and supernatural charm.

    Subordination

    Since their first demo in 2013, the Austin expats in Institute have edged their raw
    anarcho-punk blitz into something much more expansive and nuanced. 2014's
    Salt EP marked the beginning of the band's working relationship with Sacred
    Bones, and it explored longer, more experimental song forms. Catharsis, the
    band's debut full-length, was another huge push forward, with a slightly cleaner
    production and some krautrock influence creeping in around the edges. Subordination
    sees them push themselves further out of genre, incorporating hard rock
    and glam and writing some of the most diverse material of their career.


    Subordination was written in the days leading up to Institute's first European
    tour, where they then had a chance to sculpt the songs live before recording them
    in summer of 2016. The songwriting and recording process sought to close the
    gap between the band's records and shows, to make an album as representative of
    their live set as possible. It was the most collaborative Institute writing session to
    date, with all four band members contributing (gtr -Arak Avakian, drums - Barry
    Elkanick, bass- Adam Cahoon & vox - Moses Brown). They worked again with
    producer Ben Greenberg (Uniform) and fully captured the intensity that has
    made them one of the best live punk bands touring today.


    Frontman Moses Brown's lyrics remain deeply personal, but rather than diving
    into introspection and plucking out intimate details about his life, he attempts to
    dismantle systems of patriarchal thought and power. Brown investigates national
    insecurities and American socialization failures through the lens of his personal
    experiences in both public school and art schools.


    The songs on Subordination address the lonely sham of playing by the rules, the
    search for money and power, the annihilation of a true personality, and the standards
    of normalcy that, from childhood, condition us to feel abject.

    Teatime Assortment

    Since before he was even able to play an instrument, Martin Newell was
    messing around with home-recordings. Having grown up in the Far East, Newell
    returned to his home of England at age 13 with just a little 3-inch spool
    tape-recorder and his first guitar. At age 14 he wrote his first song, not even
    knowing any chords. His song writing continued through is teens and into his
    20s, when he purchased a Sony reel-to-reel recorder and 12 string guitar. It
    is this early songwriting that led him working with a wide variety of musicians,
    recording in beautiful studios and forming his many projects such as Cleaners
    from Venus and Brotherhood of Lizards. But it was this early songwriting and
    recording that led him to find that he was happiest when recording by himself,
    with minimal equipment. As Newell often says, "Actually, I preferred the demos".


    Having upgraded himself from reel-to-reel to a Tascam Pocketstudio and
    digitizing some of his archaic recording knowledge, Newell set out to
    begin home recording again. The tracks on this collection run from 2010
    to mid 2014. Some are recordings loosely based on movie themes and
    soundtracks for imaginary films. Some are instrumentals from a collection
    called The Late District, while others are from a recent album Return to
    Bohemia, which saw a small release in England. This recent resurgence
    in creative strength, along with the success and newfound popularity of
    Cleaners from Venus, have all led up to Teatime Assortment. Think of it as a
    "Best of New Newell". A true wordsmith, Newell himself has put simply why
    one might be compelled to take a listen here: "If you're the sort of person
    who likes this kind of thin, then this is the sort of thing you'll probably like."
