Anyone tried Audience Auric Illuminator on CD's?


If so, how well did it work? Thanks

People seem to like the new formula quite a lot. I prefer Vivid to the old stuff, but have not tried the new (not blue) Auric Illuminator.

Regards,
It works, but I prefer Latinternational'a procedure. I use a mold release liquid before applying the white liquid. Check out their website. I've done about 500 discs and though slight, the improvements are nice...
.
I agree with Meralla on Vivid over the older version of Auric Illuminator (I also have not tried the newer version of Auric).
.
I recently did find that Audio Top easily bested Viviv.

It works ok, but I like Turtlewax better
We all seem to use different products. I've been using Record Research Lab "Shine Ola" on my CD's, DVD's and SACD's for a few years with great results. I haven't tried the new, latest version of AI and most likely won't.

Where can I get some Shinola ? I would like to do a comparison of Shinola vs Audio Top.

Hi Larry,

You can buy RRL products at Acoustic Sounds, Classic Records, Elusive Disc, Music Direct, Red Trumpet, and Galen Carol Audio to name a few. (These are all places I've bought RRL record cleaner from in the past).

I believe that Red Trumpet may still have a special on RRL still for first time users. If not Galen Carol has it for $20 plus shipping.

Thanks, I will call Galen tomorrow, I need to get some RRL record cleaner. That works out perfectly.
.
I will do a double blind comparison of Shinola vs. Audiotop and report back to you all.
.
Up until now, Audiotop was significantly better than Vivid and Vivid trounce Auric Illuminator.

Hi Larry,

Maybe I should try some Audiotop and report back my Shine Ola vs Audiotop conclusions? Where do you buy it?

Best wishes,
Jack

Jack, I ordered my Shinola today from Galen and he shipped today.
.
I plan on burning a few copies of the same CD's, treating one with Shinola, one with Audiotop and leave one copy untreated.
.
I will do a double blind test/listening session with an audiophile friend and report back here once we are done.

Hi Larry,

Great. One very important question, where does one buy Audiotop? I don't see them advertised anywhere. Do you buy direct? Do you have a contact number?

I'll also suggest, since you are doing comparisons on CDR's that you add one CDR to your test; pre-clean a disc with Shine Ola before you burn it.

We have a group of 4 to 5 guys that meet from time to time, just like Albert Porter's group. As soon as we can find out where to buy Audiotop, we'll share our conclusions as well. One CDR precleaned with Audiotop, one afterwards. One CDR precleaned with Shine Ola, one afterwards, and one that remains untouched.

If we wait a week or two, we can have BLER tests conducted by a friend that works at a large, well known software business that transfers sensitive data. He has benches filled with test equipment which test for things I'm not even aware of.

Best wishes,
Jack
I haven't tried any of the other products, but I regularly use the new Auric Illuminator and I think on most CD's it makes a big difference. Definitely reduces glare and hash.
