    Classifieds - I would buy this if....

    I agree with this. I find endorsements from other members useful. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Assange extradition

    I agree with cloth ears on this. It is a disgrace how Assange has been treated and a sad indictment of our society that the people who should care don't care. When you look at the number of sheep who turn out to protest against Trump but can't actually explain why they hate him so much, compared to the indifference about Assange's treatment, it's depressing.

    Think I almost remember them. Would have loved a pair of them as a teenager. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Record cleaners

    I don't have a Project cleaner but I have an Okki Nokki which is very similar. And I have a Velvet Vortex. I like them both. For really dirty records I sometimes clean it using both of them. I think the VV removes more ingrained dirt but the ON gets rid of smears better. As for drying. Only the bottom third of the record has water on it when you remove it from the VV. You can just leave it on the spindle and stick the spindle somewhere that will hold it until the record drys. Or you can dry it on the vacuum cleaner if you want. I have tried a Karcher window cleaner and it is hard to suck the water up without pressing on the record, which I don't think is ideal. If I had to choose one, it would probably be the VV just for its overall cleaning ability. It does take longer and is quite noisy but is a bit less labour intensive than the ON. Also you can clean more than one record at once. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Two Whatrecords deals.

    Brilliant. Thanks for this, been looking for a deal on this for ages. Bought two other albums I wanted at the same time to make the most of the max postage charge so got three albums delivered for £60. The Who album alone would normally have cost £33 plus postage.

    Sad news. I heard his system at Kegworth and it was honestly the best thing I heard all day. I told him so and he seemed genuinely chuffed. RIP. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    isotek isoplug

    If you want to see if it works in your system you can borrow mine for a couple of weeks if you want. If it makes a difference get one or buy mine, if it doesn't send it back. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    isotek isoplug

    I've got an Isotek Neoplug which is pretty much the same thing. It made no difference at all in my system, but then I don't have any trouble with a noisy mains in the first place. Do you have a particular problem with a noisy mains supply? Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Acrylic Platter Mat or Whole Acrylic Platter?

    I use a Vinyl Passion acrylic mat and I like it better than anything else I've tried. Don't think you will go wrong with the Project equivalent whichever option you choose. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
