    Ok since there is a few vinyl lp lovers like myself on here thought ide ask what you use to clean your vinyls to get the best results. Amazing how dusty your vinyls can get just sitting in the sleeve.

    Used to collect vinyl. Got a few wot erg a few bob in me dads loft along with 2 50s dansette record players & god knows how many record collecter magazines. Used to have a little record cleaner set. Put the record on & spray it & wipe with a velvet cloth while records going round. Would imagine there must be somet on eBay. Worth looking.

    oh loved my vinyl ..my lp collection was upto four foot high but...sadly ...it weighed too much and took up too much space....so I had to say goodbye..

    really pissed off when they came out with the mp3 vinyl record conversion player...:D

    its making a big comeback at the mo...

    in keeping with this forum...you should use pure water to clean em:rofl:

    There are plenty on ebay so thought ide ask before I part with any cash. I just got rid of my modern deck and bought a lenco from the 70s sound is phenomenal with the 70s amp beats digital hands down I reckon the 70s was the pinnacle of sound reproduction. Don't leave those decks in the loft that would be sacralidge.

    Before I toddle off just so I don't totally appear to be one of those long groin area things people are calling me lol, just use pure water and a microfibre. I have a very large vinyl collection and it's all I do.

    I scour the charity shops still a quid a piece mostly. The problem with digital is all instruments and vocals sound as if they are comming as one sound not individual. Where as with vinyl the instruments have their individuality.
