The Orb Disc Flattener 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 Flattener 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 records and it worked perfectly.

I normally don't leave reviews, but I cannot believe how well the ORB record flattener works! Recently received a limited edition record that was damaged in shipment, horribly warped, unplayable. 4 hours in the ORB and the record is as flat as a pristine QRP pressing! Sound quality of the record is perfect, no audible damage to the record. All my warped records are now going to take a pass in this machine. Worth every penny!
