Chisto Lp Vinyl Soulution

Vinyl is my passion and as it shows lately, that even youngsters are catching up with it. Nothing keeps my hearth in the loving beat as seeing this happening. Am I getting older and feel retro about it? No! It just shows, that some sort culture is happening. Buying vinyl means that people are feeling different about music. All the digital revolution is great, but holding and having a physical object is something different. Who know, maybe future will bring some sort of high-end USB flash drives with high-res master tape files in unique sort of material presence, that will feels the same. Digital audio is changing so fast and yet we're still hankering for some sort of physical medium to stay. We'll see...

Cleaning vinyl can be one of the nasty parts of dealing with this medium. For some it's already a ritual, that give no second thoughts, but it might push people away from this sort of enjoying the music. As long as vinyl exists there were numerous school to thought in the matter of cleaning it properly. So what is right? What works for you might not be even a consideration for other vinyl enthusiasts. I'll try to keep it simple. Both old and new records are subjects of different kid of naughty dust. So, before each listening we're bound to wipe this sucker away from our bellowed black discs. After using it on daily basis I can recommend it being used as following. Spray it gently on the vinyl surface and wipe the dust and other unwanted micro particles first counterclockwise and then in opposite direction. Leave it for few seconds and then use finest record brush you money flow allows to. Do not use too much of cleaning fluid. Just a gentle spray, brushed the working side of and employ the brush. 

Simple and a matter of few strokes. Once you do this often enough, you just forget thinking about it and it becomes a part of listening to vinyl. Cleaning even gives kind of romantic feeling and involvement into listening.  

I'm using both Chisto products regular. Chisto Easy Groove is my daily buddy in my pleasures of analogue seduction. They are both cost effective "soulutions" for every music, audiophile and gear lover.
