The HW-16.5 is the standard in affordable record cleaning machines but neither its build quality nor its cleaning power has been compromised. Its high-torque, 18 RPM turntable motor is more than capable of withstanding the pressure of heavy scrubbing during extended cleaning sessions, and its 35-second cleaning cycle per side makes quick work of even the dirtiest records. Now with self aligning vacuum suction tubes for even more accurate cleaning, the HW-16.5's high-powered vacuum ensures quick, deep cleaning.
The newly designed vacuum pickup tube automatically adjusts to accommodate records of any thickness. The internal fluid collection system is made of stainless steel to prevent corrosion, and the fully enclosed design prevents splashing. In the VPI tradition, all components are extra heavy-duty and professional grade.
This one is in good condition. Functionally, it is in great condition. We had to replace the older turntable mat with a felt one as the foam one had started to disintegrate. Cosmetically, it does have some superficial blemishes (see photos).
We are a real brick and mortar store in the heart of the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago. We welcome trade-ins - simply message us what you have and we'll get back to you with a value. We also love local pickups. Local sales and Illinois residents are subject to Chicago tax. Canadian and overseas customers are subject to customs and duties. We do not undervalue or mark things as gifts as it is against the law and necessary for insurance purposes. Thanks for looking.
