Cleaning can get some of the crap out of the grooves that causes noise. A good turntable can minimize how noisy an LP appears to be, and certain cartridges can ride low down in the groove, avoiding damage caused by other carts that rode higher up.
However, if there's a scratch, and it's deep enough, I think you pretty much gotta listen to some scratch. I have a couple of albums that appear to be in near mint condition, with no obvious scratches, and they are noisier than some much older LP's I own. I assume that can be marked down to poor pressing and possibly poor vinyl. Of course, to get rid of noise completely, there's always CD.

But I've got a similar issue. I've been buying vinyl for the past 2 years or so now, at the moment I've got about records so still a relatively modest collection. I take good care of all my records and all of them are still in very good condition. However though, yesterday I received a new record that had so many pops and crackles in it that it kind of shocked me. It was Johann Johannsson - Copenhagen Dreams, an absolutely beautiful album.
The record was brand new as well, it was still sealed and came perfectly packed. But when I played it I noticed an extensive amount of pops and crackles, and not just during some parts, no, I mean literally every second of every single track on both sides I just don't know how this is possible? The record itself looks fine by the way, there's no sign of any dirt or damages. It's not too bad when I listen to the record on my studio monitors though, they're definitely still there but it's not as annoying as when you're listening to the record on headphones.
Then it's just absolutely unbearable. So could anyon tell me how this is possible with a brand new record and if there perhaps is some way for me to get rid of the crackles? It just really bumped me out to be honest. It's such a beatiful record and I had to wait almost 2 weeks for it to get here, and now that it has finally arrived I just can't enjoy it properly.

Apply the epoxy adhesive to the crack using the toothpick. Smooth flat. Let the epoxy adhesive set for 24 hours before using the sink. Dispense a small amount of a brass cleaner, containing petroleum distillate and ammonium hydroxide, onto a soft microfiber cloth.
Squeeze a few drops of brass cleaner on the cloth and rub the scratch gently, using a circular buffing motion. The cleaning compound fills small cracks, and the gentle rubbing motion buffs the plastic surface. Wipe off residual brass cleaner with a clean cloth.Vinyl is a leather-like plastic fabric made from polyvinyl chloride. It resembles leather and is susceptible to the same cuts and tears as real leather. A variety of vinyl repair kits are available online and through mail order. Leather repair kits are not recommended for use on vinyl and vice versa.
