Any chance you still have it? It’s only been 1.5 years!!

Hello
I just wanted to hear your take on in the issue I have with my Klaudio.
I just recently purchased it almost unused Klaudio but I have an issue with cleaning that leaves tiny Scuffs on the surface particularly on the side where the light is. It seems like it leaves scuffs after spinning. It is so obvious and unfortunate to see this on brand new records.
Would you comment on that please?
Thanks
Peter

I second the motion to contact Klaudio for service. They'll take care of it.

Just curious but I see a newer model of the Klaudio for sale. Is Klaudio still in business or did someone buy the business and is building units again.

I believe it's a new model and that Klaudio remains under the same ownership.

Same company AFAIK, they also sell tonearms. The new unit has some improvements over prior units, there's a thread about them.

KLAudio is back with a new RCM: the KD-CLN-LP200T.Looks like it continues to be made in Korea.

$6000 available at Acoustic Sounds who is the distributor. Sounds like AS had a hand in returning KL to the marketplace.

Https://store.acousticsounds.com/c/8...eaning_Machine

There is also the KLA LP Loader which works with the LP200T. This lets you process 5 records in succession. $3080

https://store.acousticsounds.com/d/1...eaning_Machine

A noise isolation box will be available similar to the original.* Reminds me of dot-matrix printers.

-- The new LP200T looks physically robust. Something is made of it having "200W total ultrasonic cleaning power". Not sure how this translates in effectiveness for this particular machine because tank volume is not specified. (The Elmasonic P120H tank operates at 330W (~100W/gallon) with peak power of 1320W.)

-- KL/AS does not say transducer frequency. Iirc the orginal operated at 40Hz. If this new model had dual frequency you bet it would be advertised.

-- A cooling unit (fan) is an option to maintain water temperature.* Cooling unit kicks in when water temp reaches 35°C.* A nice feature.

-- Includes an external water pump and filter. We are not given any information about the filter.

-- Wash and dry cycles independently adjustable 0-5 minutes.

-- Water supply available via an external tank with a filter. This looks like a plus for easier tank changing.

This new model retains what imo is the original's basic weakness - it does not allow the use of anything beside water..* Ultrasonic action alone is effective, but to get a record really clean some chemistry is needed to lower surface tension and gain some detergency - or so says my years of experience with a variety of record cleaning methods.

I was surprised the manufacturer states: Fill the reservoir with tap or bottled drinking water to about 75-90%. Distilled water is not recommended, because the electrical conductivity may be too low for the cleaner to begin the wash cycle.

The original KLAudio machine had many fans.I suspect this new machine will be successful although it now has more marketplace competition than previously.
