New Hobby Ultrasonic Record Cleaning

Purchased a cheap $199.00 stainless steel digital ultrasonic cleaner with a very nice record cleaning attachment off Amazon and I am having a blast.

This thing is heated, has a timer and an electric motor to rotate the records in the US tank. It is a 6L unit and it is made in China. Seems well built and it cleans records like a much more expensive machine.

I have cleaned a half dozen albums that are 40 plus years old and have only been cleaned with vacuuming machines and this thing is great. The albums I have cleaned sound darn near new and my wife thought I bought another new cartridge or phono pre-amp.

Can not recommend this type of cleaning system enough.

Rediscover those old albums.. if this thing lasts a couple of years I will be a happy dude. 
@joey_v This is hands free also.

Other than putting records on the motor shaft and lowering it in the vat...

Even a 6 year old that can put a round peg in round hole can do it. And clean 6 records at a time. ;)
 And with money I saved I can buy said 6 year old something cool like a motorcycle.

Yeah but it also dries well. 
Not to mention the ultrasonic motors are vertically oriented and at the appropriate frequency.

In addition the water is filtered with each record so contaminants are limited.

Or you could buy a motorcycle.

Rather spend it on my Ducati.

To each their own. $2000 dollars will buy a lot of skydives and a couple of rear tires for my Ducati.


Listen to the music not your gear.

Skypunk, thanks for the link and review of the ultrasonic cleaner you found. I had just added building an ultrasonic record cleaner to my do list for 2021. Instead, I went ahead a minute ago and purchased the one you provided a link to. Great price and a whole lot less work than building one. I didn’t really want to go out and search for all the parts to make one during this pandemic, but really did want one.

I’ll do a search for some Triton X100 next. Anybody else have a surfacant they use and might recommend? Thanks again.
