Good job you dont write for the hifi mags or press.
Having to buy a new copy of your Clapton album after using the cleaner isnt a great advert for the solution
I think I am sadly with the few who have noticed the HUGE rip off price for the quantity you get. This stuff is not made from liquid moondust so someone is having a laugh!
I paid nearly £15 for 30ml of a large multinational companies beard oil yesterday.
I'm ok without it.....If i want flakes of dry skin dropping out of my beard.
However, if I want a nice lustrous beard, with the skin underneath kept nice and healthy, there is a price to pay and my weapon of choice isn't cheap.
That isn't made from the tears of the angel Gabriel either, so quite why that's so expensive is a mystery, But you have to remember that Simon is a human, like us, who probably isn't able to buy the fluids, bottles and labels in the quantity needed to get that price down.
R&D, time, expense for previous mixes that may not have made it to the final product, containers, labels, postage, other people to pay (I'd have thought) for their expertise in developing the fluid.......it all adds up.
I'm not convinced it's a rip off. It's not cheap, but I didn't look at the price of it prior to the review, I just tested it for it's purpose and it was the best of the 4 I tried.
The new LP was due to the condition of the LP. The LP has been cleaned with 5 different cleaners and sounds like Snap Crackle and pop are having a party on there.
I agree with you on price for a bottle of water mixed with isopropyl, basically you're just paying for shipping, and more than once if its an imported brand.
Our reagents are made for us, nothing is off the shelf. Add in the cost of bottles, labels, packaging, website hosting, public liability, the hundreds of hours Greg has put into R&D and you still only end up with a user cleaning cost of around 10p per record on the small bottles, and about 7p per clean record for the 100ml bottle of E3.
What do people think, is the cost of a decent album too much to be able to restore the sound to the best part of 500 albums?
