I’ve been trying to think of the quickest way to explain Furutech’s new DFV-1 device, so here goes. It’s like a trouser press for your vinyl records, flattening warped LPs back into shape using a controlled heating and cooling cycle.
It even looks like a trouser press, see? You unlock it, put your record on the spindle, close the device and press a button to start the flattening process. Sadly, it doesn’t actually play the record while steaming it (although that’s not exactly a shock, given the process.
Anyway, the DFV-1 is available now in the States for $1,480 (around £735). Vinylphiles will be hoping it comes to the UK soon.
