A clean record is a happy record.
Austrian turntable house Pro-Ject has unveiled the VC-S Vinyl Cleaner, its first RCM, which it describes as a “radical new development” for vinyl and shellac records.
The machine cleans a record in up to two rotations, with the best results coming from one turn forward and one backward.
The record is said to turn within 2 seconds per rotation, approximately 3 times faster than the average cleaning machine. Pro-Ject promises that this will not only lead to faster cleaning, but also cleaner and dryer records with zero residual humidity.
Retailing at £295.00 (€449,00), the new VC-S Vinyl Cleaner is considerably cheaper than competition from Moth, VPI and Nitty Gritty. Head over to Pro-Ject to check out specs.
