I've noticed over the last couple of years cleaning a new record before playing doesn't really make any difference at all. 8)
Old bought used and charity shop records need a clean. :smt023

Adam,
If you use a USB Microscope and look at what your stylus is doing and picking up when playing a New record for the first time ?
Then do the same with another new copy of the same record thats been cleaned on a KM RCM ?
You will actually see more rubbish on the stylus tip from the cleaned record than the uncleaned record. 8)
I don't buy any used vinyl these days so my RCMs are waiting to go to new homes.
