Im into records and the price on line of good stuff has been sky rocketing so much so that it’s difficult to buy 1st releases of popular titles in mint or near mint condition, so I’ve had to start looking at VG+ on down with all the clicks pops and crackle that comes with these gradings. Back in the 1980’s some tech guys were looking at gadgets to remove unwanted noises from vinyl but it seemed they never could get it right and the music suffered but now this company Sweetvinyl, using the latest tech seems to have kicked a goal. They have these Sugar Cube models; SC 1 which removes the noise using Analogue to Digital conversion then Digital to Analogue conversion or DAC so the music comes out unaltered but those annoying noises are gone and SC2 which does the same but also allows recording and has a screen showing info on the album. If your on any kind of a budget like me it means you can get those hard to pay for titles at affordable prices so it would pay for itself! They are expensive now at $1000 for the base model and $1500 for the SC2 but I can see how the purchase makes sense with the savings on records. Now the news for us is Sweetvinyl emailed me yesterday that they are working on new releases which will be 25% less. So if anyone else is interested perhaps you could start a poll to organise a drop for the next product run? I don’t think I can as I’m too new here. Ive followed the advice on the help page but I don’t get an option to start a poll on that screen. I’ll certainly do it if you can help😅
Love Peace & Music
