Wanna start a real debate? Mention the topic of record cleaning methods. :shock: That will bring out a lot of extreme opinions and emotions, for sure.

Just a couple days ago, I was basically called stupid and a liar when I said that I was satisfied with my record cleaning procedure that doesn't involve a fancy vacuum based machine. No doubt that a machine may be the ultimate way to do it, but it's not the only way to get good results. They acted like I was throwing my records in a mud hole before I played them. :roll:

I value people's opinions, but I always take them with a grain of salt. No matter what you do or say on the internet, somebody will always come in and tell you that you are doing it wrong. :?

My opinion is that the vacuum machine people are right! I've never tried them,
but I've tried everything else and nothings works.

Let's also not forget that the average record owner (the non-hifi crowd) never cleaned records at all back in the day, they just played them

Audio purists may say otherwise, but I play all my 45's, mint or otherwise, on a 1959 Philco record changer, and they all sound pretty much the same as when I got them to my untrained ears.
