As promised part 2 of the Sweet Vinyl SC-1 (Sugar Cube) is here. For those of you who haven't read Part 1 the story is as follows. I needed to find a pretty trashed album to really show off the amazing capabilities of the SC-1. I could not find anything awful enough in the shop so I went hunting. I popped into a local charity shop and found what seemed to be a well used record of Bill Haley and the Comets. After a quick listen the album seemed in fairly reasonable condition. So I did this.....
I set up a simple system consisting of a Rega Planar 3, Rega MM Fono stage and of course the SC-1. With the help of one of my colleagues we rigged the out put of the SC-1 to a computer and recorded the following. There are three parts to this recording of the aforementioned group playing Cryin' Time. The first section is as you would hear it before the Sugar Cube has worked its magic. There will be a 4 second gap and then you will hear the same segment after it has been repaired. Point of note the filtration level is only on level 5 out 10. The repaired section is followed by the Snap Crackle and POP that has been removed by the SC-1.
This is awesome. You might want to listen a couple times, you might not believe it first time around.
Well what did you think of that?
I can, hand on heart state. ''There has been no extra filtration program used." I would also like to say that it is far more impressive live!
Well after that I don't think there is much more to add. I promise in the next blog I will focus more on the app and how to set it up.
We look forward to seeing you at Audio T Portsmouth and watching your jaws drop. Please bring in an old favourite album and we will give it a clean on our Project VC-S vinyl cleaner and show you first hand what the Sweet Vinyl SC-1 noise remover can do.
Thanks for reading. James, Nick, Joe and thanks to Mark who helped with recording the sound clip.
