    It’s a shame it was silver otherwise I’d have bought it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Homemade ultrasonic vinyl cleaner

    I use the following mix: 4.8 litres distilled/deionised water 200ml isopropyl alcohol 10ml ilford wetting agent 5ml Triton X-100 Empty the tank when I’ve finished cleaning a batch and filter through paper filters (used for car paint spraying). Only ever cleaned one LP at a time so far (although could try with two). I rinse each LP after ultrasonic cleaning via VPI Typhoon RCM. Insert record into new inner sleeve and ready to play.

    How long are you cleaning each LP for? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Chasing The Dragon

    I’ve bought the Eleanor McEvoy and Clare Teal LP’s which are really well recorded (apparently the Eleanor LP is a hi-finews album choice). Great to see a quality brand doing so well. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Distribution block question

    I'm currently using a Tacima 6 way distribution block in my office system (powered from a Power Inspired AG1500 mains regenerator). After a couple more equipment purchases, ideally now I need an 8 way unit to plug my mains plugs into. Any recommendations please (I don't want massively expensive Nordost, Isotek or similar), just looking for a cost effective solution? Thanks

    Just using mine at the moment Tim. The next aspect to this thread is discussing the ‘cleaning fluid’ to use. I know we have spoken about this before and might be worth outlining what you have tried and settled on. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Can anyone with a 'dedicated' listening room ...

    Pretty lucky as I have a dedicated listening room and a second room for storing additional vinyl (cleaning vinyl) and storing surplus kit, both rooms are around 30ft x 15ft. In addition I have a second system (vinyl, streamer and CD) in my office which to be honest gets more use, but often this is as background music rather than listening.

    Which are the good Focals?

    That makes more sense. I use a Krell 402 with my Alto Utopia Be and there has never been any sense the amp was running out of steam. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
