Default Another Audio Desk

I finally decided to jump on the bandwagon, and traded my VPI HW17 Typhoon for a new Audio Desk Pro. I used to let the pile of albums build up until I was ready for a marathon cleaning session, because it was a nuisance to get everything set up just to clean a couple of albums. Now there’s no excuse not to just pop an album in the machine when it arrives. I love how easy this is to use, and what a great job it does.

I know where you're coming from. My 16.5 is a bit of a pain which means I don't clean records nearly as often as I should.

I've heard nothing but great things about your cleaner and the Klaudio one as well. It's on my bucket list for sure.

Congrats on the purchase! I've been thinking of getting the Klaudio version. I was thinking of keeping my VPI Cyclone for those extra dirty used records that need a good soak first before putting them into an ultrasonic machine. Records can never been too clean...lol.

I have the Klaudio machine, but the exact same experience. It is so much easier to use than the vacuum machines that there's just no reason not to use it. No muss, no fuss and very effective.

Congrats! I echo the prior comments. Cleaning w/my Okki Nokki would be an all night Saturday event for me, with the Klaudio it's just pop a new record in and a few minutes later I'm good to go. One of the best investments one can make for a vinyl collection, not only for the quality of the cleaning but for the time saved in your life.

Was a bit skeptical to put out that much money over my Okki Nokki, but after spending hours cleaning vinyl I took the plunge last month and wish I would have purchased the AudioDesk Pro a year ago.
Even finger prints on old garage sale records come out. No using 3 different solutions and yet another to remove protein based stains. I’m now listening to more music and less cleaning.

Everyone has different budgets, but absolutely these machines are a great investment. I started my journey long ago with a spin clean and even at that price point you're getting noticeable results.

Love mine. Expensive, but can’t imagine living without it now.
