Nitty Gritty 2.5 Fi TurnTables

5/5 (5 Reviews) MSRP : $745.00


Product Description

Now record cleaning is faster and easier with the Nitty Gritty 2.5FI. Nitty Gritty's unique Capstan record drive automatically rotates the record during fluid application and vacuum suction-eliminating the need to manually scrub the record. "FI" stands for Fluid Injection, which means the 2.5FI has a fluid reservoir with a pump that automatically applies fluid to the VAC Sweep brushes. This makes applying the fluid easier, with less wasted fluid.

Bottom Line:   
I have had my Nitty Gritty going on 14 years now with no problem. I manually apply fluids, first using Record Research Labs Super Deep Cleaner, scrubing, then vacuming it, repeat with a standard alcohol based cleaner, then one last time with distilled water. The machine does a great job cleaning records, built well and no cpmplaints. I would buy another if this one ever quits.

Bottom Line:   
I've heard one pop after 6 albums!
No 'surface noise', which was probably just dirt.

It cleans records great. The fluid is also great. The best thing I ever bought for my vinyl and cartridge. Easy to use with, fluid application is so easy with hand pump.

Bottom Line:   
The NG 2.5 Fi is a semi-auto record cleaner that applies cleaning fluid, brushes and vaccums records while spinning. The sonic improvement is amazing, virtually eliminating surface noise on decent discs and making even severly dirty and old discs very listenable. Every vinyl enthusiast must have a vaccum machine like the NG 2.5 Fi. Only complaint is that, for $500, unit should come with a dust cover rather than having it be a $20 accessory.
