It is not uncommon for the serious audiophile to have an investment in quality records far in excess of his outlay for sound reproduction equipment. This expensive investment demands the best in constant care and maintenance, and the HW-17F record cleaning machine is the answer.
The HW-17F automatically applies either distilled water or 50% diluted alcohol solution by way of a built-in liquid pump. An eight ounce reservoir is provided. Push-button operation automatically washes a record to the very bottom of the grooves; moreover, it does so faster and with less wasted motion than any other record cleaning machine or device available today.
The HW-17F's built-in liquid pump does not allow fluid to come into contact with the record label. The system is fully enclosed, and all points of contact are velvet treated to protect the LP's delicate vinyl surfaces.
Featuring an 18 RPM high-torque motor that allows deep cleaning without strain, the HW-17F's powerful, integral vacuum system ensures quick, deep solution removal, as well as the removal of old, built-up residue, and prevents further accumulation of foreign matter.
The HW-17F cleans the oldest, dirtest records thoroughly, providing a pristinely clean, dry, static-free record that sounds better than new. Ideal for audiophiles, record archives, radio stations, audio retailers, and used record stores.
"Of these products under review, this is the rich man's choice. The HW-17 is as easy to use as the far more expensive Keith Monks and does everything just as well. It is also far easier to adjust than any of the Nitty Gritty's and shows better quality of manufacture. Class "A" rated." - Anthony Cordesman--Stereophile.
