Furutech’s DVF-1 Cooks Records Good
Got a bunch of warped LPs at home? Don’t toss 'em out -- toast them in this record flattener.

The DFV-1 can mend even the slight irregularities on your old LPs.

I have a ton of records in my back closet. Ranging from Sinatra to “Sing Along with the Super Friends,” I never listen to any of them, but for some reason, I just can’t let go.

Every once in a while, I leaf through them to find that the summer sun and my lack of central air conditioning has claimed another victim from my collection. Instead of tossing them, Furutech wants to cook them up for a perfect play.

Yes—cook them.

The http://furutech.com/produ_2.asp?ProdNo=263” title=“DFV-1”>DFV-1 is an LP flattener. It uses a cycle of heating and cooling to cook those records up just right. Push the button and in a few hours, you’ll have a nice flat record that looks as good as the day that you bought it at Sam Goody. A few hours? Well, “Dark Side of the Moon” wasn’t recorded in a day, you know…

The end result should sound much nicer, and also keep that stylus from warping as well. Those things aren’t as cheap as they used to be!

Speaking of not cheap: This Easy Bake LP oven runs about $1,480.
