I made a killing on eBay… I got a Okki Nokki record cleaner for super cheap! Holy cow does it make a difference. I have a Genesis album that would always skip since new… I just cleaned it and the skip is gone! This think is amazing! It’d not for everyone tho… It’s kinda big! Here it is set up on a small folding table.
It’s got a turntable that slowly turns in both directions. You apply cleaner and spread into thr groves with a brush. Once done that arm swings onto the record and vacuums up the dirty fluid. I think from now on I will clean everything before playing… No pops no nothing in silent portions of the music!
