    I only ordered War because my original copy sounds pretty bad. I have a good copy of Unforgettable Fire so I passed on that one.

    I got mine retail in just a packing box. It's fine. I don't need them hitting me for another five bucks for some shiny packaging I'm going to recycle anyway.

    Eh, mine was half off. And...
    I want a good product, the packaging sometimes just distracts (detracts) from that.

    So would you say it's not the spin clean per se but more the solution they provide?

    There's a lot of us that have adopted @mcherry 's technique of SpinClean then spin again in pure distilled water after for a rinse. I've never had the surface noise problem, but have heard enough people say they do to make me believe it's a solution:water issue. Either way, I like the peace of mind the rinse cycle gives.

    What was the deal? Shamefully I just listened to Pink for the first time after hearing how awesome it was for years and man that album rips.

    with my experience i would say so i also tried the rinse method of rinsing it in just plain purified after cleaning it in the recommended amount of spin clean solution did not resolve my issue.the method i use now is i only use one cap of spin clean fluid instead of using the recommended amount in the purified water with a couple drops of clear dish washing liquid that is free of scent,dye,phosphate, & residue usually marketed "pure,clear or natural" & then i rinse it in the spin clean with just plain purified water i feel like i'm getting better cleaning results now.my rule of thumb is if the record is visually clean & plays clean i don't wet clean.i'm not saying this is the best method but it is what works best for me.

    I would go with distilled water, which is just h2o, purified water may still have some minerals

    i use distilled or purified but i make sure they don't indicate they have minerals for taste or anything like that.the water i'm using now says it has been through four different water purification processes to remove impurities.

    Serious pricing error on Avenged Sevenfold's The Stage Deluxe edition. Pre-Order for 23 when it should be around 80.

    A good price for an ECM slab of vinyl. Also, every performance is heartbreakingly gorgeous.
