One thing you will need to keep hearing all that great music is a record washer.  A clean vinyl record will not only sound better, but it will last longer as well.  Permanent damage to the vinyl can be caused by repeatedly playing a soiled record.  Spin Clean Record Washer does a fantastic job cleaning vinyl records.  Watch the video to see the record washer in action.
