"I Highly Recommend the Record Doctor V" - Michael Fremer, AnalogPlanet.com
New Low Price, Same Great Performance!
Introducing the all new, but same as before, Record Doctor Series V. The new model offers the same great performance as the previous model but now at a much lower price! The Record Doctor III was $299. The new Record Doctor V is only $199.00.
So if you enjoy listening to vinyl, you can hardly afford not to get a Record Doctor vacuum-powered record cleaner. It not only cleans your records, but it can also help prolong their life by keeping them free of dust, dirt, and grime.
"I think this compact all-in-one box is the way to go," reports Michael Fremer in his AnalogPlanet.com review for November 27, 2013. "I highly recommend the Record Doctor V to any serious vinyl fan who's been without a vacuum machine."
Here's How We Kept the Price So Low
We’ve made the Record Doctor for twelve years. During that time, three different companies provided the Record Doctor’s wood cabinet for us, and the price of the wood cabinet kept going up, and up, and up. First, it went up 25%. Then 50%. Then 100%. When the last cabinet maker folded, our cost of the wood cabinet through another maker was quoted with another 120% increase.
We were about to toss in the towel on the whole thing, rather than raising the price again. Then we got a tip on a brand new source that would provide the wood cabinet at such a low price, that it resulted in a $100 savings which we pass on to you!
Turn Your Records By Hand and Save a Handful of Cash
The vacuum powered Record Doctor is the most highly recommended low-price record cleaning machine in the world. Stereophile magazine calls the Record Doctor, "the least expensive way to effectively clean records."
Record Doctor V features the same vacuum motor and vacuum cleaning strip as much more expensive machines, but it does not have the expensive motor that turns records for you. So, turn the records by hand, and save a handful of cash!
The Record Doctor V features a precision roller bearing to make records spin easily, and a handy storage tank for the easy removal of spent record cleaning fluids. The Record Doctor V comes complete with a 4 oz fluid applicator bottle, applicator brush, and illustrated cleaning instructions.

|Works as advertised!|
Well, having cleaned a few records last night with the Record Doctor, Im happy to report that it works as advertised! LPs come off the vacuum with a nice glossy surface and play with none of the first-play crackle that seems to be a part of the Spin-Clean experience. Im still fine-tuning my user technique, but turning the disc slowwwly over the vacuum definitely brings the best results. I have no significant issues with how easily discs spin, and I have no need to buy the upgraded KAB platter. I have yet to try it with REALLY dirty records, which is one area in which the Spin-Clean excels. If it can match the Spin-Cleans performance on thrift store records - and if I can get it to work with large hole 45s which I believe it will with some finessing, but havent yet tried - then my Spin-Clean will likely be put up for sale. In short, assuming that its built to last, I declare the Record Doctor a very worthwhile purchase.

|Scares my cat!|
Your machine really sucks! OK, I couldnt resist saying that. Kidding aside, the Record Doctor does a great job cleaning up the used records I find at secondhand stores. Some of them are really gross. But the Record Doctor cleans them beautifully. Afterward most sound really great. Just one complaint. Any time I turn the machine on it sends my cat racing from the room. Kind of fun, actually.
