    Hi
    Any vinyl lovers out there? If yes then what cleaning solution do you use? I have a VPI Scout player and a Ortofon 2M Black cartridge. Also a VPI HW 16.5 vacuum cleaner and the solution it came with is near empty.
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Just go to Audio Advisor, Music Direct or Acoustic Sounds on the internet for your solution, I buy it a gallon at the time. Nice TT and cleaner.

    You can substitute Tegritol with Kodak photoflo. I saw a 16oz bottle for $7.99 at B&H photo +S&H

    I have also have another formula which uses readily available components. I will post when/if I can find it. I use automotive wax foam pad to clean and drip dry. I also use dollar store anti-stat duster to pick up any dust and neutralize any static just prior to playing.

    I use a Nitty Gritty and their fluid. If there is VPI cleaning fluid, then thats what you should use.
