No, actually just found it in a search while looking for something to re-stabilize vinyl after being steam cleaned (I'm wary of this idea). I'm actually more the 'leave it alone' type.

Enjoy!

Same here, although sheffield labs endorses it.

Enjoy!

Rich, the steam cleaner really does wonders to clean as an accent to the Nitty Gritty. Nothing but positive things to note, not only by me but also on the Polk forum with some heavy hitters that are way beyond what I have in vinyl.

Here's a link...... [4 pages deep, FYI]

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Is "Gruv-Glide" anything like "Astro-Glide???" Sounds like something they use in a porn flick....

9 years later....

It's all part of a friendly back and forth between Jesse and I.

It may have taken me 9 years to head his advice and get a reference source but a little over two weeks ago, I pulled the trigger on a Marantz SA-7S1. Been listening since last night, ran across this thread just now and figured I'd play tennis with him on the friendly back and forth.

'Cause we all know Jesse LOVES his vinyl.... :rolleyes:
