Short description of the process and the equipment used for this.

LP Hygiene.

Each LP is washed before recording (4-5 cycles) using a Klaudio KD-CLN-LP200 v.4 (Ultrasonic Cleaner with Dryer) and immediately put to TT. I also used to process each record with a Milty Pro Zerostat 3 antistatic gun but with Klaudio it is unnecessary. The stylus is also treated with MoFi #9 before each recording.

Equipment:

  • Turntable Acoustic Signature Storm + SME V-series + MC Cartridge Clearaudio Goldfinger Statement V2.

  • MC Phono Preamplifier Channel D Seta L.

  • ADC Antelope Audio Pure2 (Mastering AD/DA Converter & Clock) + Audiophile 10M (10 MHz Rubidium Atomic Reference Generator).

  • Apple Mac Mini (only SSD, UpTone Mac mini DC-Conversion / Linear Fan Controller Kit (MMK), powered UpTone JS-2 Linear Power Supply) > Curious USB 0.8m > USB Regen (powered UpTone JS-2) > Curious USB Regen Link.

  • Monitoring and playback with Antelope Audio Zodiac Platinum DSD DAC + Audiophile 10M Atomic Clock + UpTone Regen + Curious USB.

  • Cables (Kharma, High Fidelity Cable, Vovox, Combak Harmonix, Acoustic Revive, Transparent Audio, Shunyata Research).

Nearly forgot!

In the room where the recording is being done, a Acoustic Revive RR-888 Schumann resonance generator is on, which is located at a height of 1,7m.
