VPI HW-17 Record Cleaning Machine

It is not uncommon for the serious audiophile to have an investment in quality records far in excess of his sound reproduction equipment. This investment demands the best in constant care and maintenance, and the HW-17 record cleaning machine is the answer.

The HW-17 automatically applies either distilled water or 50% diluted alcohol solution by way of a built-in liquid pump. An eight ounce liquid reservoir is provided. Push-button operation automatically washes a record to the very bottom of the grooves, and does so faster and with less effort than any other record cleaning machine available today.

The HW-17's built-in liquid pump does not allow fluid to come into contact with the record label. The system is fully enclosed, and all points of contact are velvet treated to protect the LP's delicate vinyl surfaces.

Featuring an 18 RPM high-torque motor that allows deep cleaning without strain, the HW-17's powerful, integral vacuum system ensures quick, deep solution removal, as well as the removal of old, built-up residue, and prevents further accumulation of foreign matter.

The HW-17 cleans the oldest, dirtest records thoroughly, providing a pristinely clean, dry, static-free record that sounds better than new. Ideal for audiophiles, record archives, radio stations, audio retailers, and used record stores.
