Vinyl Records FAQs

Why are vinyl records popular again?

Vinyl has been making a comeback in recent years, not solely because of its warm, analogue sound characteristics but also because vinyl is so highly collectible. A vinyl record cover is easy to display and showcases the artwork of an album on a bigger scale than a CD jewel case. Plus many people find that analogue vinyl records have a warmer, fuller and richer sound than its digital CD or MP3 counterparts. Vinyl records also reintroduce the physical act of listening to music as the main activity, not as a background to another activity like working or exercising. Sitting down yourself or with a friend or a group and listening to vinyl is in itself the activity.

Can vinyl records be cleaned?

Yes, actually, vinyl records can be cleaned and even restored, though it depends on what degree you wish to clean them. — one can simply and gently wipe the vinyl with a damp cloth or use a carbon fibre record brush to remove dust and lint, or you could use more specialized cleaning products such as specific cleaning fluids and brush systems, though none of these products are designed to deeply and thoroughly clean or restore a vinyl record. In order to clean and restore a record thoroughly and completely, an ultrasonic cleaning system with an anti-bacterial surfactant is required.

Should vinyl records be cleaned?

Absolutely, even brand new records should be cleaned before their first play. No record comes out of a pressing plant free of particles or contaminants and in many cases it can be quite the opposite, in fact, all new pressings will excrete release agents that are natural to the record pressing process.

Today, most record pressing factories are primarily running at 100% capacity, 24/7 largely due to vinyl’s ever increasing demand. In many cases there can be remnants of vinyl clippings or fine strips between the record and the sleeve or even within the grooves themselves. If not properly removed, these remnants can cause serious damage to your turntable’s stylus. It is also important to note that in virtually every case, the new record itself will contain a release agent that is required to press and separate the vinyl during the creation process. Though the release agents won’t damage the record, it can however adversely affect its sonic performance as well as accumulate in the turntable’s stylus.
