Compared to the popular brands on the market,
this Record Cleaning Machine has the following distinctive advantages:
Easy to clean after each wash - just wipe off the liquid then the cleaner shines as new ( unlike other brands use painted MDF particle boards which will become quite ugly overtime)
You can hardly damage the wand - it places onto records by vacuum and pop up by itself when you stop the vacuum. One piece design - each to change - you don't even need any tools - cheap to replace too :)
No sourrounding structure around the record edge - you can easily put on and take off records and spray cleaning liquid without worrying about wet the cleaner box or leave liquid in any corners
Great vacuum power - it cleans and dries the record in about 1 1/2 rotation - yes the high power vacuum is a bit loud - this is the time you pull out you iPod, wear the headphones and sing with it :)
For cleaning process:
We recommend you to use a soft pre-vacuum brush to rub cleaning fluid to the record so that no surface is left uncleaned. You can usually find such soft brush from local record stores or turntablebasic.com for very affordable price.
You also need a spray bottle and cleaning liquid of course. Any household cleaning spray bottle will do - please rinse clean before putting in the record cleaning fluid. A common recipe for the cleaning fluid is distilled water and 99% rubbing alcohol (both available at drugstore at little cost), 1:1.
Note: The white brush shown in the picture is provided with the machine. It is NOT for cleaning records as the brush is quite harsh - it is for cleaning the vacuum sprout fabric.

Review: I owned a VPI HW16.5 for years, and always felt that while functional, it was a poorly executed design. Why would anyone build a wet record cleaner out of particle board? Why put sides around the cleaning area which block record access and the ability to cleanup spills? How about protection for the record label? The Opera Consonance addresses all the VPI's deficiencies for an even better price.

Review: My Consonance Vinyl Record Cleaning Machine arrived today. My expectations were surpassed. This has to be the best kept secret in RCMs. Perfect size, great cleaning ability (although just getting started cleaning the collection), and the construction is beautiful. Aluminum exterior that is about a 1/4 inch thick. Acrylic bottom and trim. And that excellent record clamp! All heavy duty. If it had a cover and had bidirectional turntable rotation...it would be perfect....

Review: Fabulous unit, great build, it takes about 1 minute to clean a record. How easy is that.
