  1. Item: VPI Record Cleaning Machine Location: Adelaide Price: $700 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Multiple Record Cleaning Machines Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This Has been my second VPI. My first one I owned for 12 Years before selling it on as I further developed my Cleaning regime.. This one I have had only a couple of years and is still in excellent condition. Ive had to pay a lot more to improve over this machine.. The price Im asking is under half the price of a new machine.. These have been built for over 30 years and are built to last.. Everything is there to start cleaning except for a cleaning liquid. There is also a spare tube holder if you want to clean different size vinyl. The cleaning tube has been used so at some time you will need to replace it. Parts are easily available from Krispy Cable. There are plenty of choices online or a DIY liquid can be made at home.. Happy to post at buyers expense as I have the original box.. THE ORIGINAL HW-16 AND 16.5 HAVE BEEN IN PRODUCTION FOR 30 YEARS. VPI's HW-16.5 is the standard in affordable record cleaning machines but neither its build quality nor its cleaning power has been compromised. Its 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 HW-16.5's high-powered vacuum ensures quick, deep cleaning. The 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. In the VPI tradition, all components are extra heavy-duty and professional grade. "I have found the HW-16.5 to be an outstanding performer. The record surfaces are microscopically clean and are so pristine they look new!" -- Bert Whyte, Audio Magazine ****STEROPHILE PRODUCT OF THE YEAR AWARD WINNER**** Clean your records with the HW-16.5 and hear what you've been missing. Features: 35 second cleaning cycle (wash/dry) per side 18 rpm high torque turntable motor No liquid touches record label Fully enclosed: no splashing, no mess Powerful suction (vacuum) ensures quick deep cleaning Removes old residue, prevents new build-up Fail safe design All components extra heavy-duty professional grade Safety coated record contacts, easily user replaceable Leaves a pristine, dry, static-free record Built-in stainless steel water collection system New vacuum tube assembly with auto adjustment Removes solution from record's surface all at once Pictures:
