“I have a record collection dating back to the 1950s and have used a VPI vacuum cleaner on all my records for the past 25 years. The records sounded better after
each VPI wash. I recently acquired your Phonophile Deep Cleaning system and was astounded at the improvement after steaming my allegedly clean discs. The sound was
more dimensional, instruments were more lifelike. That subliminal artificial edge on violins was gone. Wow, what have I missed all these years.” - Sidney G.
PHONOPHILE DEEP CLEANING SYSTEM
Cleans LPs Better Than Any Vacuum Machine
Every serious vinyl lover knows that household airborne grit and oily vapors are the enemy of good analog sound and of long record life. Meticulous cleaning right to the
bottom of each groove is essential to get the great sound you paid for—and to preserve that sound for 500 to 1000 plays. Until now, that cost you $500 to $2000 for a good record vacuum cleaner, or up to $5000 for a fancier
thread-plus-vacuum machine. Now, $115 lets you do an audibly better cleaning job than any of those megabuck machines.
OUR CHALLENGE: Listen to an LP that has just been cleaned on any fancy machine. Re-clean it with the Phonophile System. If it doesn’t immediately sound better—and look cleaner—get your money back.
Over the summer the original steamer we painstakingly tested for our system was discontinued by the manufacturer. We’ve tested the new factory replacement and was pleased to find it has an equally excellent spray pattern and there’s no chance you can hurt your vinyl or your hand; the spray temperature at 4" only measures 140 degrees F. Unfortunately, the new steamer has a slightly smaller tank capacity and is a bit more expensive than its predecessor. Because we are reluctant to drive up our price, we’ve decided to offer our Cleaning System with and without a steamer. We encourage customers to purchase the Deep-Cleaning System with our tested steamer, but those who prefer to save a few bucks can source their own. Either way, perfectionist cleaning of a stack of 10 records takes less than 20 minutes.
