As you know, the condition of your vinyl collection has a great impact on the quality of your listening. The Sota Record Cleaning Machine will both preserve and revive your LP's. Its single switch operation and automatic features make the Sota Record Cleaner easier to use vs. the VPI and Nitty-Gritty cleaners. Sota's LP Cleaner cleans better, is quieter, and holds more waste fluid for hours of record cleaning without stopping. For excessive high volumes of cleaning, the Sota LP Record Cleaner has been designed, and is available with an exhaust fan, which allows air flow and cooling for non-stop cleaning pleasure.
The Sota LP Record Cleaner is housed in a sturdy, hand crafted, scratch resistant, attractive black laminate cabinet with a watertight interior. The hand polished black acrylic cover is removable for easy storage. The Sota record cleaning machines incorporate a precision waterproof polymer platter with a soft PVC record mat, providing long-life as well as a flat and safe record-mounting surface. The Crystal Fluid dispensing system provides full record application with spill-free semi-automatic fluid application allowing easy one-hand operation. Eight ounces of LPC Crystal Fluid is included with the LP Cleaner.
The Vari-Port design, or vacuum pick-up tube sleeve, achieves linear vacuum pressure across the records surface. A hardwood soft-bristle brush in included for manual record scrubbing. A large 32 oz. capacity waste fluid tank incorporates an exterior level indicator for simple gauging of when to empty the tank. Easy and complete fluid draining is then accomplished with a small external hose and clamp. When not in use, the LPCs detachable A/C cord allows for easy storage. A convenient storage area is provided for the brush and A/C cord.
