This is the finest noise reduction ever developed. It has the capability to record over scratched records and eliminate those noises and burn them to a cd. Fabulous! Very expensive back in the 1970's & 1980's. Average retail cost back then was $480! That would be $3000 now in today's dollars, also very rare. Get one if you can and want to eliminate the cracks, hiss, and pops in analog sources.



re: High-Com II

Yes, I second that last post.
With the exception of a Packburn NR system, I am unaware of any other type of noise reduction that will remove cracks and pops in vinyl. Although High-Com and dbx may help suppress some surface noise from records, the pops, crackles and thumps will still be heard...TAKE CARE OF YOUR VINYL! :-)

re: High-Com II

How's that: record over scratched records?
I have 3 of these units here btw...

You must be using this thing in a different way than intended and I'm curious how...

re: High-Com II

I am looking for one of these if anyone has one for sale in the US.
