VPI 16.5 Record Cleaning Machine: Stereophile Product of the Year Award Winner!

The HW-16.5 is the standard in affordable record cleaning machines but neither its build quality nor its cleaning power has been compromised. Its high-torque, 18 RPM turntable motor is more than capable of withstanding the pressure of heavy scrubbing during extended cleaning sessions, and its 35-second cleaning cycle per side makes quick work of even the dirtiest records. Now with self aligning vacuum suction tubes for even more accurate cleaning. The HW-16.5’s high-powered vacuum ensures quick, deep cleaning, while its newly designed vacuum pickup tube automatically adjusts to accommodate records of any thickness. The internal fluid collection system is made of stainless steel to prevent corrosion, and the fully enclosed design prevents splashing or mess. In the VPI tradition, all components are extra heavy-duty, professional grade for a long, trouble-free life.

Featuring semi-automatic operation, the HW-16.5 leaves a pristine, dry, static-free record after each cleaning. Manual scrubbing, automatic rotation and vacuuming. Clean your records with the HW-16.5 and hear what you’ve been missing! “I have found the HW-16.5 to be an outstanding performer. The record surfaces are microscopically clean and are so pristine they look new!”Bert Whyte, Audio Magazine
