PRO-JECT VC-S2 ALU AND VC-E RECORD CLEANING MACHINES

Pro-Ject has unveiled two new Record Cleaning Machines (RCM) which the Austrian company claims are its fastest yet.

Pro-Ject has unveiled its two newest RCMs, one premium model and one for smaller vinyl collections.

The VC-S2 ALU at £399 is the premium model here and is equipped with a vacuum motor to remove dirt from the grooves of your precious plastic. The company says that your vinyl will be residue-free in as little as one or two rotations. Each rotation takes less than two seconds - “three times faster than comparable products” boasts the brand.

The VC-S2 ALUs also features a new aluminium screw-on clamp which is lined with a rubber pad. Additionally, there is a 2.5-litre tank to collect the cleaning fluid.

You also get Pro-Ject's proprietary 'Wash-IT' non-alcoholic cleaning concentrate (£15 per 100ml) bundled in. The unique liquid promises to reduce static charge and stylus wear.

At a hundred notes less than the VC-S2 ALU is the compact VC-E (£299).

You still benefit from the same vacuum technology meaning a record can be dried in two rotations. The significant difference is that it has a 0.5-litre fluid tank, considerably smaller than its larger stablemate which lends the VC-E to tackling smaller collections.

The VC-E also weighs 6.5kg compared to the VC-S2 ALU's 8kg.

Both cleaning machines are available from October 2019.
