Record collectors know the value of a great record cleaner. VC-E is a compact and affordable record cleaning machine. It’s got a robust motor that cleans vinyl records in as little as one or two rotations. Best results with this washer are achieved with a rotation or two forward, then the same backward.

At 2 seconds per rotation, VC-E is about 3 times faster than comparable cleaning machines, resulting in faster and more effective record cleaning.

An acrylic clamp seals the record label from cleaning fluid to avoid damage to the label. The metal arm is easy to use, mechanically stable and focuses all suction power directly onto the surface of the record. Our eco-friendly and alcohol-free vinyl cleaning concentrate ‘Wash it’ offers excellent cleaning results and staves off static, reducing record & stylus wear. Pair the cleaning liquid with distilled water for the best results.

The aluminum top plate prevents fluid damage to the chassis so that the machine offers years of reliable record care. You’ll never need another cleaner kit again.

*Note – VC-E is best used as an on-the-fly vinyl record cleaner, cleaning a handful of records per day. Due to the compact design, it has a relatively small tank and vents out the top of the machine (beneath the record). If the tank fills to a certain point, the vent may mist a bit. For this reason, Pro-Ject includes a plastic platter that shields your records from the vent. If you are cleaning batches of records, we advise VC-S2, which has a larger tank and vents out the side.

For a smaller scale manual solution, try the Spin-Clean record cleaning kit. It comes with anti-static velvet brushes and high-quality record cleaning fluid. For a more robust record cleaning system to maintain your record collection, the VC-E is our recommendation. This record washer requires no drying rack or microfiber cloth.

If you’re seeking to clean vinyl records for audiophile sound quality, step it up to the Pro-Ject VC-S2, trusted by record stores around the country. Pair it with a carbon-fiber record cleaning brush and stylus brush. Your turntable will never sound the same to you again!

VC-E & VC-S2 Setup Notes

Please be advised that our machines include a record platter with a tapered screw hole on one side. That side is the top. The set-screw is meant to be threaded through that screw hole and tightened to the point where the screw’s head is flush with the platter’s surface (which also secures the platter to the spindle & bearing). Next you affix the record cushion atop the platter (over the screw head) and away you go. Installing the platter incorrectly will result in uneven rotation of the platter!
