I saw this product at AXPONA. Build quality looks good. The big thing is that it does not dry the record. I have also lost interest in ultrasonic record cleaning. I am convinced the rotation of the record disturbs the cleaning action of the ultrasonics. I have tested this many times and see no advantage over other cleaning methods. When people claim the hear an improvement when they first clean using standard methods, play the record, then clean using ultrasonics, play the record and hear cleaner sound, I maintain its because they clean the record a second time. I think its the multiple cleaning is what they are hearning
I think you make some important points. Since I only have ever used vacumm based cleaners (i.e VPI), I can only comment from that vantage point. If you have time you might look at this second video that Michael Fremer posted. You will quickly see that Fremer is having a hard time accepting some of Mr. Kirmuss' pronouncements. I am especially confused about the reference to "anti-freeze." I did a search and could find no one advoating the use of anti-freeze for record cleaning? I looked up ant-freeze and it is based on variations of glycol which I guess is what this guy is referring to?
The other thing is he spends a lot of time polishing the record with a microfiber cloth. I am wondering if that is significant as well? I have been experimenting with doing a final "polish" with a very high grade microfiber cloth after the RCM step. I think it might be helpful?
