Record Flattening - single or multi-packs
Unfortunately, production defects, poor shipping and long term storage of vinyl records sometimes results inshape distortion that can make your records hard to play and even harder to back-queue.
Theinnovative audio accessory Orb DF-01i allows you to correct the warps and avoid shape distortion and wear.
The Orb Disc Flattener uses a unique heating technique which is applied with twosemiconductor heater films, one on the top and one on the bottom. By thermallycontrolling the heating-up phase and cooling-down phase, the warped record isallowed to properly relax and return to its original flat state.
The machine heats only the outer edge and centre of the record. The grooves arenot heated and therefore their sonic shape is preserved.
The entire process takes four hours; two to heat up and two to cool down.
We charge $9/record and less for bulk flattening - please note that this takes4 hours per record so they oftenneed to be left with us overnight or longer depending on how many records you need repaired.
Please note that SP records , heavy weight records, and flexi discs (also known as phonosheet or sooundsheet records) are not supported.
"The Disc Flatterner Model DF-01i was definitely one product I thought theworld did not need. Boy was I wrong on that. This is a must have unit foranyone with an extensive record collection...The machine is absolutelybrilliant...At this stage, I've comfortably flattened 50+ records and no longergive it a second thought. I have NO problems with the unit and not one record" - Richard Foster,Hi-Fi+, Issue 40, www.hifiplus.com
