Henley Audio say they are delighted to announce the immediate availability of a new accessory for high-end vinyl aficionados. The SugarCube™ SC-1 has been designed to enhance the enjoyment of vinyl records with click & pop removal technology created by SweetVinyl, a Silicon Valleybased start-up focused on elevating the vinyl experience with old or damaged records.

The SC-1 is an all-in-one vinyl noise removal device. Designed as the first audiophile-grade product to enable non-destructive click & pop removal on any vinyl LP record in real-time.

First shown in the UK at the end of 2017 and now readily available from stock, the SC-1 uses a proprietary algorithm to detect, isolate and remove only unwanted noise from the musical performance. 

Henley say the unit is easy to install into any vinyl Hifi system with an external phono stage and that it is also easy to use. Simply press a button to initiate the 24-bit/192kHz digital clean-up process, and then turn a dial to adjust the strength of the process. Henley continue saying that the audio signal remains tonally unharmed, and retains the space, depth and clarity of the original recording, only removing the unwanted elements of the vinyl record. When in bypass mode, an internal relay isolates the audio signal from any digital process to ensure you only hear the original audio exactly as you normally would. With the supplied USB fob, you can adjust and switch the SC-1 process on or off via SweetVinyl’s SugarCube app for iOS and Android devices.

SRP £1,550.00  

The SweetVinyl SugarCube SC-1 is available in the UK now. Available in Black or Silver finish.
