Powerful Bidirectional Record Cleaner
Don't just vacuum clean your records. Get them Cyclone clean! The MW-1 Cyclone from VPI is the first and only record cleaning machine that vacuums dirt off the record clockwise and counter clockwise to really clean out the grooves. This motor is a high torque 18 RPM forward-and-reverse turntable motor.
Powerful Bidirectional Motor
The MW-1 is housed in an aluminum waterproof case with a welded stainless steel water tank, which drains out the back. The bidirectional turntable motor allows for you to scrub and vacuum in both directions for the ultimate in deep cleaning. Professional quality toggle switches have an extremely long 100,000 cycle life for lots of durability and dependability.
The turntable motor is designed to last decades and is inspired by the original HW 16, which is still working 30 years later. The vacuum motor so powerful, it is rated to lift mercury 120 inches, so it can really pull the grime off your records.
VPI Kicked It Downstairs
All components are heavy-duty, industrial quality and include a two-inch delrin record clamp. In addition, the MW-1 Cyclone is quieter than the HW-16.5 and more durable with its aluminum casing. For good measure, VPI took the final model and kicked it down a flight of steps. That model is currently cleaning records in VPI's listening room and can clean your record in under 30 seconds! That being said the roll down the steps did do a number on the paint job.
The MW-1 Cyclone pays tribute to the HW-16.5, which started VPI, and honor the passing of the torch from Harry to his son Mat Weisfeld as President of VPI.
