    had mine over 10 years I think now. still on same pads and it still cleans perfectly. Only thing that has happened was the grub screw holding the turntable loosened off a bit.simple fix

    Not sure how it can be bad for records unless the surfactant somehow reacts to the ultrasonic thus damaging the record?

    and

    As I said they sound like a good idea in principle (especially for really dirty records), but I'm unaware of any record libraries or archives that use them. I think most use something like the Keith Monks RCM, which is not an ultrasonic cleaner.

    As an aside, why are RCMs so expensive? Necessary, if not essential, but IMO expensive.

    I have seen what ultrasonics can do to alloy carb bodies

    Would not use one on my record collection

    I have owned a Okki Nokki and a Moth , Im going to say somthing contriversial now ( in my opinion ) they are both

    " VERY LOUD , painfully so " and do the job " sort of " NO comparison to the machine I now own that is VERY QUIET and does a excelent job , the only drawback is the price , I justified the purchase based on the size of my LP collection 2000 ish , If I clean them all once each it works out at .75p per LP plus cleaning fluid

    Lots of advantages , I can go into more detail if needed ,

    PS buy some ear defenders

    I have an ultrasonic cleaner with automatic motor bought from eBay for about 150 quid, in my opinion for its price it's decent,does a good job of giving me disks that seem quieter and less crackly. I bought mine from a supplier in Poland I think after reading quire a few positive reviews on a Facebook audio page.
