WHY MAINTENANCE AND CARE FOR YOUR RECORDS IS IMPORTANT
ULTRASONIC cleaning is considered by many to be the pinnacle of both preserving your record collection and unleashing its true performance. We are very proud to be able to offer the KLAudio KD-CLN-LP200 Ultrasonic Cleaning Machine as our prime cleaning solution for your precious records. The KLAudio machine uses distilled water only, ensuring no residues are left either on or in the record.
So, how does Ultrasonic cleaning work? In a nutshell, Ultrasonic cleaning is a process whereby high-frequency sound waves create cavitation bubbles in a liquid bath of water or cleaning agent. The cavitation bubbles produce high pressure forces that help clean items in a powerful, but minimally abrasive manner while also penetrating cracks and recesses. Removable contaminants include dust, dirt, oil, grease, fungus, and more.
Ultrasonic cleaning is ideal for vinyl because a) it requires no contact with the record (the cavitation process does the heavy lifting), and b) Ultrasonic gets deep into the grooves; many other cleaning methods are much less effective at cleaning those hard to reach deep groove cavities…

But we don’t skimp on the initial cleaning step either! We use the Clearaudio Double Matrix Professional SONIC Cleaner as our first step in the two-step cleaning process. Most hi-fi enthusiasts would consider owning one of the two machines we use, rarely both!
