Thank you all for your responses. Quickly convinced me not to give up on what I have.
My brother (who's electrically competent) was over and diagnosed the problem and found it to be a faulty switch! I'll take it!
Now just need to search the internet and find a replacement...
Thanks again for responding,
I've owned about ten different record cleaner, with the original Keith Monk's being the first. I bought it from a radio station. In my opinion the Audio Desk that does everything itself is much better than the original.
Just slide the record in turn it on and kit the clean button. Return after about five minutes and carefully remove your clean and dry record. I had previously founjd that cleaning a record with another record cleaner improve the sound, but not with the Audio Desk.
I think the Clearaudio Double Matrix Sonic Professional is (by a wide margin) the best available cleaner.
I owned a Nitty Gritty (ok if you are in a budget or good for a first cleaning of a really dirty record) and the KLAudio ultrasonic machine in addition to the Clearaudio.
The KLaudio is fantastic, BUT won’t get fingerprints, smudges or any oily substances since it doesn’t have brushes. The Clearaudio uses ultrasonic vibrations, brushes and record cleaning fluid, so it gets EVERYTHING.
My process was typically a quick wash in the Nitty Gritty then onto the Clearaudio and then finally a short 2 min bath in the KLAudio. Overkill? Yes!
But the Clearaudio alone will get you 99% there. It’s big money but worth it if you’ve got the funds.
