    Default Moth RCM

    Now after six years of using a Moth RCM, I am thinking about a new machine. The Moth, in conjunction with L'Art Du Son Record Cleaning Fluid, is very effective and probably is all that is needed for more than acceptable results for precious vinyl.

    My problem is this: The Moth is VERY noisy and requires me using ear defenders to avoid ringing in the ears and it's uncomfortable.

    What is out there as effective but much quieter?

    Rather a lot, incl. Keith Monks, VPI, Clearaudio etc.), but quietness seems to be commensurate with cost. My VPI 16.5 isn't quiet, but I've never needed to wear anything over my ears. However, my age-related hearing probably doesn't hold a candle to yours.

    Is the title supposed to say "MJoth"? Or did your big fingers get in the way typing?

    I'll change it to 'Moth' if you like.

    Will take a look at them. The Moth is very good but is so noisy it really is a pain TBH. Thanks.

    If you want a quiet RCM be prepared to pay out big money all the reasonably priced ones are noisy.

    Budget not really an issue tbh. Reliability and value for money more important. And QUIETER than the (very good) Moth.

    Another vote for Loricraft. I had a Nitty Gritty 1.5 Pro (?) for years but when it died and was beyond repair I had to look for a replacement. After reading everything I could I decided on Loricraft, a PRC-4, and am really pleased with it. It is much quieter than the Nitty Gritty but more importantly it cleans the record better - they are noticeably quieter - virtually no background noise with less pops and crackles than previously.
