    I bought a Project VC-E Compact Vinyl Record Cleaning Machine at thje start of the year.
    I had never been able to justify buying a cleaning machine in the past but in January I decided to sell a big chunk of my record collection and wanted to enjoy the ones Im keeping more so a record claning machine helped on both of those fronts.

    The Project VC-E Compact is ok and I am glad I bought it,but it does have a huge design fualt where the vent that releases the air that gets sucked in gets released and hits the underside of the record so you end out with a damp (light moisture) side to the record on a machine that is suposed to dry the record, its unbelevable how this got produced like this.
    Thats said the machine is OK, does an OK job of cleaning the record and Im glad I bought it.

    i was looking at the HumminGuru too. Couldn't justify the amount of money and possible additional customs charges on something that hasnt been tried and tested, also reading up on some comments on the internet stating the power is kinda low (40 khz) in relation to other brands. Now, i know jack shit about al that but it put me off.

    Yeah that was a concern with a lot of people, but this was brought up with the backers early on and some people that know about these things replied:

    The 120khz transducers which the Degritter uses are more effective, no doubt. But you need a lot more power (which is why the Degritter has 4) and is only better in some circumstances, and only marginally so the two 40Khz transducers are a good compromise for a cost effective device (the Degritter is around 2500) Most DIY solutions in forums go for 35Khz transducers so the Humminguru with 2x40Khz will be adequate.
    I also read somewhere in all the comments that other machines place there transducers at the bottom, where as the Humminguru place their facing the record, meaning the transducers wouldn't need to be so powerful as they are vinyl side facing as opposed to coming from the bottom.

    I know that is all specialisation and I'm not that way technically minded, but if it works for the price then it's a bargain, if if only partially works I've other machines to fall back on, but I thought it was a good gamble, and being one of the original backers I got it a lot cheaper than when it will going into full production.

    I'll let everyone know my thoughts once it arrives.
