Nothing special. Scrub the vinyl while off VPI with RRL. Vacuum. Scrub the vinyl on VPI with other RRL using the VPI brush. Vacuum. Place on turntable. Zerostat. Decca brush. Turntable on. Play. :-)
Today I did a Grateful Dead live 2lp set that was frying bacon before, now it's pretty smooth but still some pops and clicks. Another succcess today was The Who's Live at Leeds. Geez, I wish I had gotten serious about vinyl a long time ago. Great sounding $5 lps and the equipment pays for itself.
This had to be the stupidest question I have ever asked.IME the stupidest questions have been the ones I've been too afraid or proud to ask.
I remember your thread, and remember being among those who advised buying a RCM before a power conditioner. Glad to hear it's working out. (Sort of, I assume you're bugging VPI to get it running right.)
Now about that power conditioner.... !
Music Direct sending me a new one. Nice company. Hopefully, I'll have it today. :-)
Aye, Gregadd. It's not just cleaning up a lot of pops, tix, and noise, it's the clear improvement of air and soundstage that's quite amazing. If one cannot try stuff at home, one relys on word of others. Unfortunately, no one in my circle is into audio. If you're a skeptic like me, the sense of amazement perhaps is even greater. I knew it would make for cleaner records, I just didn't realize how much better they would sound.
