The Orb Disc Flatter could take the warp out of a potato chip. There's not a record in your collection that this thing can't flatten. Imagine if you could repair the warp on that otherwise valuable or favorite record. Now you can.
The Orb Disc Flatter uses a unique heating technique which is applied with two semiconductor heater films, one on the top and one on the bottom. By thermally controlling the heating-up phase and cooling-down phase, the warped record is allowed to properly relax and return to its original flat state.
The machine heats only the outer edge and center of the record. The grooves are not heated and therefore their sonic shape is preserved.
The entire process takes four hours; two to heat up and two to cool down.
We know it's hard to believe, but we tried this thing with one of our most dished record and it worked perfectly.
"The Disc Flatter Model DF-01 was definitely one product I thought the world did not need. Boy was I wrong on that. This is a must have unit for anyone with an extensive record collection...The machine is absolutely brilliant...At this stage, I've comfortably flattened 50+ records and no longer give it a second thought. I have NO problems with the unit and not one record has suffered any damage." - Richard Foster, Hi-Fi+, Issue 40, www.hifiplus.com
