The original VPI HW-16 record cleaning machine and then the later VPI HW-16.5 record cleaning machine have been in continuous production for 25 years! The VPI HW-16.5 is the standard in affordable record cleaning machines but neither its build quality nor its cleaning power has been compromised hence the reason for its effectivenss, durability and longevity.
The VPI HW-16.5 record cleaning machine's 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 VPI 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.
