33 1/3 Record Store in Aurora.

Ask for Robert, the owner.

Charges $3 per LP and gives you a free, new inner sleeve.

Does a good job.

The OP is talking about ultrasonic cleaning of a vintage amp not lp's. See the link he has provided. I would be scared to have this done to a nice piece of vintage gear.

That was my thought too, but I guess it works if you leave it sit to dry long enough...

Wow, this is an old thread, but here goes.

Doing this will damage most components,like capacitors and controls. Do not do this! It looks nice, but is a disaster from the point of view of being able to use this set in the future. The controls will wear out quickly because the protective lubricants and the carbon traces keep the wiper from tearing up the carbon. I can only guess what it might do to other parts. It won't be good, that's for sure.

I do use an ultrasonic cleaner for knobs and mechanical parts. The odd PCB that will be rebuilt, things like that. A bare chassis would be okay, but not one with parts on it.

Now, I am going to share a story and will urge readers NOT to try this ever but.........

I bought a vintage Sansui AA-930 receiver from a seller that said it was in good condition but needed a bit of TLC

Fair enough, took it home , opened it up and yuk ! It was filled with bird seed, insect larvae, dehydrated insects, whatever
one could imagine would crawl in and die .

Seems it was a barn find that was being flipped and I was the unlucky recipient.

Anyway, decided it either do or die , took it out to the driveway, fetched the garden hose , and yes, gave it a going over
that would make any car wash proud. The goal was to clear out the infestations,etc prior to parting it out.

As it was a hot summer and the receiver was stored in the garage , it got pretty hot and dried out completely.
Decided to give it a try anyways , lo and beholf, it fired up and was playing GOOD ! A bit of De-Ox-It and it was purring like kitten again.
Now , imagine that ! A true story.
