Record Doctor VI Record Cleaning Machine
The new Record Doctor VI Record Cleaning Machine is the first major upgrade to the original Record Doctor V in the last ten years. This new machine is quieter and cleans better than all previous Record Doctor generations. And that's saying a lot, considering that the Record Doctor has won praise the Stereophile, The Absolute Sound, and AnalogPlanet.com.
In fact, Record Doctor was honored with a coveted Editors' Choice Award in The Absolute Sound magazine, recommending it "for those who love and care for their vinyl but don’t want to break the bank on a cleaner… Set-up and operation are a snap."
The Record Doctor VI is loaded with improvements to make your entire record cleaning experience better than ever before. There are so many enhancements, they take a while to list!Better in So Many Ways!
New additional venting reduces the unit noise level and decreases the internal heat. This upgrade has also been installed in all newer Record Doctor V models, too. So, two generations of Record Doctors benefit from this improvement.
The Record Doctor VI boasts a machined aluminum top plate. This metal plate makes the cabinet stronger, quieter, and more fluid resistant. It also dissipates heat better, and it looks much nicer than the old V top plate.
You'll love the new, larger injection-molded record turner. This new turner is easier to grip and turn than the record turner on previous models. It’s also wider to completely cover the entire record label of the LP, preventing the label from getting wet during cleaning.
Another nice enhancement is a new high-quality record brush for fluid spreading. Featuring more than 260,000 ultra-fine nylon bristles, this brush reaches deep into record grooves to loosen stubborn grunge.
Last but not least, the Record Doctor VI comes in attractive new finishes. Choose the carbon fiber finish or high-gloss black.Hear the Music You've Been Missing!
Vacuum cleaning your records with the Record Doctor VI is the best way to get dirt, dust, and grime out of the grooves and let you hear the music you've been missing. The Record Doctor VI brings a number of benefits to LP listening. It improves the sound quality, helps your records maintain their value, and helps extend the life of your LPs.
Cleaner records sound better than dirty records. With a clean LP, your record stylus reproduces the music the way the artist intended it to sound – instead of plaguing you with clicks, pops, surface noise, and distortion."The Sonic Benefits Were Noticeable"
"Overall, the Record Doctor performed even better than I expected it to. And the sonic benefits were also noticeable – smooth sound minus the crackles, and it was goodbye to most ticks and pops thanks to less static," reports Julie Mullins inThe Absolute Sound magazine.
"A worthy, easy-to-use accessory, the Record Doctor V is an effective, handy, and affordably priced cleaning system for vinyl aficionados who would rather allocate more budget dollars to other hi-fi gear – and to records, too (clean ones!)," Julie Mullins concludes.Higher Value, Longer Lasting
It just makes sense that clean, well cared for records are worth more than dirty, poor sounding discs. Protect your valuable vinyl investment with the Record Doctor VI. Vinyl discs can become so dirty that they are virtually unplayable. According to Gerald L. Gibson, Head of the Motion Picture, Broadcasting, and Recorded Sound Division of the Library of Congress, "Dust can become embedded permanently into the disc's grooves, causing distortion of the transmitting signal, ticks, pops, and inferior sound quality."
If you enjoy listening to vinyl, you can hardly afford not to get a Record Doctor VI vacuum-powered record cleaner. It not only cleans your records, but it can also help prolong their life by keeping them free of dust, dirt, and grime.
"I think this compact all-in-one box is the way to go," reports Michael Fremer in his AnalogPlanet.com review. "I highly recommend the Record Doctor V to any serious vinyl fan who's been without a vacuum machine."Quick, Easy, and Safe to Use
Record Doctor VI is so quick and easy to use, it only takes a minute or so to clean both sides of an LP.
With its Clean Sweep fluid application brush, soft sweeper strips, and specially formulated record cleaning fluid, Record Doctor VI is safe for all of your LPs. And Record Doctor RxLP cleaning solution is a non-alcohol industrial-grade cleaner safe for all vinyl records.Clean the records you already own plus any used LPs you find. But you need to clean brand new records, too, because LPs come from the factory with dust and extraneous bits of vinyl in the grooves.
The vacuum powered Record Doctor is the most highly recommended low-price record cleaning machine in the world. Stereophile magazine calls the Record Doctor, "the least expensive way to effectively clean records."
Record Doctor VI features the same vacuum motor and vacuum cleaning strip as much more expensive machines, but it does not have the expensive motor that turns records for you. So, turn the records by hand, and save a handful of cash!
The Record Doctor VI features a precision roller bearing to make records spin easily, and a handy storage tank for the easy removal of spent record cleaning fluids. The Record Doctor VI comes complete with a 4 oz fluid applicator bottle, applicator brush, and illustrated cleaning instructions.
