Records are precious
Not only because they are excellent sound carriers. Often the so-called “black gold” is an irreplaceable collector’s item. Even when great care is taken, in the long time it is inevitable that records get dirty.
A gentle cleaning of the disc is particularly important to preserve its value. Reiner Gläss, the brain behind Audiodesksysteme, has developed a professional yet comfortable LP-washing machine – the “Vinyl-Cleaner”. The Vinyl Cleaner is a fully automated machine that sets new standards in user-friendlyness.
January 2016 has seen the release of the newest Vinyl Cleaner evolution stage: The Vinyl Cleaner PRO! The PRO-version features an independent drying process that is not coupled with the washing procedure, better water drainage and other improvements.
Operating the Vinyl Cleaner PRO is very simple: Just insert the disc into the machine’s opening and press the red button. A yellow LED lights up and the gentle cleaning process runs fully automatically. Thereby counter-rotating microfiber cleaning barrels and ultrasonic waves softly remove even deep-sitting dirt particles from the record grooves. During operation the machine permanently filters the cleaning fluid. Afterwards two special high-performance motors guarantee an effective drying procedure of the record – at very low volume levels. When, after a short period of time, the green LED lights up the cleaned disc can be removed from the apparatus.

“…of the products I wrote about in 2015, one enhanced my enjoyment of recorded music every day: the Audiodesksysteme Gläss Vinyl Cleaner from Germany. This ultrasonic record washer is expensive but not overpriced, and is easily the best-thought-out audio accessory I’ve ever used. Best of all, the Vinyl Cleaner taught me that a lot of what I took to be record-groove damage is actually record-groove dirt—it can be removed, and the effects of doing so are musically and sonically stunning…”
—Art Dudley, November 2015
