Item: Okki Nokki MKI MKII RCM (White)
Location: Blue Mountains, Sydney
Item Condition: Excellent
Reason for selling: NLR
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
EDIT: This is a MKII and not a MK1, as I first thought. This means it is manufactured in China (not Germany) and has a plastic instead of metal wand. Apologies for any confusion caused !
For sale is a MK II Okki Nokki record cleaner, purchased in 2014 from Krispy Audio. Included in the sale are wands for 12” and 7” records, a clamp, and dust cover. The cover and 7” wand are additional purchases and retail for $115 and $75 respectively, and the 7" wand is unused. The dust cover is a must IMO, as keeping dust from a RCM is pretty important !
The unit has seen mild to moderate use, and there are months where it’s barely used.
For anyone not familiar with the Okki Nokki, it is a wet - vacuum cleaning system, and works by first agitating debris from the record as it rotates via a brush placed along the grooves. After a few rotations (the unit has forward and reverse) the wand vacuums the liquid away, leaving you with a clean and hopefully crackle and pop - free record. It can’t perform miracles and fix a record retrieved from a dumpster, but for gunk, mould, fingerprints etc... it does a good job. And with the debris and detritus new records come with, it’s a good idea to clean everything, not just 2nd hand purchases. Your needle will thank you.
A few months after I received the unit, it had an issue with the vacuum cleaner which was easily fixed by a fuse replacement and was a common problem with this model. It has been trouble - free ever since.
The original brush is long gone, so you’ll need to grab something suitable. There are plenty of options, and of course you’ll need to arm yourself with a record cleaning concoction.
I’ll also throw in a back - up set of spare velvet strips, which attach to the 12” wand and should be changed about every 50 records.
Shipping is possible as I have the box for the unit, however I don’t have one for the dust cover and so preference is given to local pick-up.

Preference given to local pickup VIC buyers.
I can send interstate at buyers expense, but very much prefer not to because of risk of damage.
Extra Info: I bought these last year from Sonic Purity in May 2018, so this gear is approx 1 year old.
The sale is somewhat regrettable, however I have other priorities now.
The RCM Sensor 2 phono stage is magic and extracts every detail from the Cartridge while giving strong bass.
(Has Furutech Connections, and external latest power supply)
There are many reviews online about the phono stage and many who have heard it will confirm its high reputation.
It has a multitude of loading and gain options.
The Kuzma Turntable is equally amazing in sound and build quality.
Latest 2018 30mm thick platter!
It has the upgraded power supply which means you don't need to change pulleys etc to change the speed.
The speed controller has a digital display.
It comes with Stogi-S tonearm, and LYRA DELOS cartridge. (has had little use, but is run in. I honestly don't know the hours)
Those who know this cartridge can tell you that its super detailed in the high frequencies and still has gorgeous midrange and strong bass.
Cartridge azimuth has been painstakingly set up by Rom at Sonic purity, using computer software.
I look after my equipment with a lot of care and live in a smoke free / pet free home.
Auditions are welcome at my home only for SERIOUS BUYERS.
Upon sale I always make donations to SNA.
Thanks for watching.
Happy Easter to all.
