Yeah, OK, but it doesn’t change that I’ve cleaned thousands of records with the Audio Desk and it works great for me. The records don’t come out wet.
On rare ocassion I get a little moisure if I don’t pull the record out straight and it picks up a few drops from the rubber blades. It happens and I pat them dry using a microfiber cloth. No big deal. I love that it cleans a record in about 5 minutes, and leaves them static free (which is not true for the Okki Nokki with vacuum).
I wonder if the vacuum process of the Okki Nokki with the vacuum tube on the record isn’t what causes the static build up problem with records cleaned that way. Maybe that’s why Audio Desk doesn’t use a vacuum?
Dis the Audio Desk all you want but it’s been a great machine for me, and with 4000 LPs the speed and convenience is a big plus.
