Q: How many records can I clean with one "bath"?

A: You can clean two 33 1/3, one 45, and one 78 at the same time. The spacing between the records is crucial to the process, any larger number of record within the same space reduces the advantage of the ultrasonic that works the surfactant into the record grooves.

To the bath: We suggest you change out the distilled water with the 1.4 ounces of 70% IPA in the tank after restoring between 15 to 20 records or when the water becomes murky. Severely contaminated records will show up with murky water in the tub. Do not let the water stand in the restoration system overnight. It will grow fungus once the alcohol has evaporated. Please discard.

Q: How long will that Surfactant bottle last before I need to replenish it?

A: You should be able to clean between 100 and 150 records before requiring a new spray bottle. (60 mL). The number of applications depends on the number of 5 minute cycles that you require to restore the record. Eight applications would see less records restored, around 60.

Also available: a 300 mL refill bottle. This is approximately 20% lower in cost.

"I have to declare that the KARC-1 is the best record cleaner on the market. Bar none.​"​

"The Kirmuss KA-RC-1 is the best commercial ultrasonic cleaner currently available on the market."

The Audioman

(on-line review January 2019)

"Kirmuss Audio’s "In The Groove" Ultimate Ultrasonic Vinyl Restoration System makes the process of using this technology more affordable. You can RESTORE your 33 1/3, 45's and 78's simultaneously!​​"

Andre Jennings

The Kirmuss system should not be seen as simply a record cleaning machine, it is a professional grade archival system that has been made affordable to anyone wanting to preserve or restore their vinyl collection and as such thoroughly deserves Hifi Pig’s Oustanding Product award.

"To say that I was pleased with the performance of the Kirmuss was to issue a laughable understatement. The KARC-1 not only removes troublesome noise efficiently, to give new life to your vinyl, it also provides a level of sonic transparency that is truly astounding. Once you hear the effects yourself, you’ll realise that you’ve never actually heard your record collection. Not properly.

As such, I have to declare that the KARC-1 is the best record cleaner on the market. Bar none.​"
