Oh yeah, you still have to tumble them to get them shiny and bright and clean.
I use the Hornady L-n-L Magnum Sonic Cleaner and their sonic solution. Cleans them up really nicely when you run them for 1.5 hours at around 135*, however, you will still have to let them dry overnight, or put them in the oven on low heat to dry them out, then tumble them the next day. I always let mine dry overnight. Then I run them for about 10-12 hours in the tumbler, while I'm at work, so nobody gets agitated by the noise of the tumbler running full of brass.
12 hours tends to get my brass cleaner and shinier than they were new and gets ALOT of the caked-on powder residue and stuff knocked off the walls on the inside.
