Setting the Record Straight on the MW-1 Cyclone
The MW-1 Cyclone was to pay tribute to the HW-16.5, which started VPI, and honor the passing of the torch from Harry to Mat Weisfeld.
The MW-1 Cyclone is the first and only record cleaning machine (that we are aware of) that vacuums dirt off the record clockwise and counter clockwise to really clean out the grooves. This motor is a high torque 18 RPM forward and reverse turntable motor. The MW-1 is housed in an aluminum water proof case with a welded stainless steel water tank which drains out the back. The bidirectional turntable motor allows for you to scrub and vacuum in both directions for the ultimate in deep cleaning. Professional quality toggle switches with 100 thousand cycle life.
The turntable motor is designed to last decades and is inspired by the original HW 16 which is still working 30 years later. The vacuum motor so powerful it rated to lift mercury 120 inches pulling the grim off your records. All components of heavy duty industry quality and includes a 2 inch delrin record clamp. In addition, the MW-1 Cyclone is quieter than the HW-16.5 and more durable with its aluminum casing. For good measure, we took the final model and kicked it down a flight of steps. That model is currently cleaning records in our listening room and can clean your record in under 30 seconds! That being said the roll down the steps did do a number on the paint job!
