Why label side down ? Under the label is the aluminium layer, a scratch on the
label side most likely hits this layer too, and that cannot be repaired by polishing.

"Schutzlack" in the picture is protective lacquer.

It's nice that you learn sensory science from fictional movies.

C'mon, just yesterday, Jason Statham taught me the proper way to wipe an LP.
If one can not trust a Mechanic, then who to rely on.

(wow, a $2k RPM9.2 black and a hundred dollar Ortofon 2M-R, who would have thought)

Well, it's sort of like being knowledgeable because you have a bunch of books on your bookshelf. I mean, look how smart scarecrow became after the Wizard of Oz handed him a diploma.

I thought one of the basics of all sensory science, including audio, is that senses (and hence experience) are not to be fully trusted. They can easily be fooled. Therefore personal experience is about the worst possible way of learning in this area. It almost guarantees misconception and failure.

One of the main things which enables science and civilisation to develop is literacy. This frees us from the need to personally experience everything we wish to learn about. Why go back to the days of ignorance?
