"The vacuum system is more than adequate to remove embedded dirt, and the 16.5 is fairly easy to use."
—The Absolute Sound, Editors' Choice Award
"These days one can spend a little or a lot on vacuum-based record cleaners. And some of the priciest models are pretty sexy, more efficient, and likely more effective than the VPI HW-16.5, which, though neither pretty nor sophisticated, is a high-value workhorse that simply and effectively gets the job done – and has for nearly 40 years."
—Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, Golden Ear Award
Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab Record Brush
A favorite of analog lovers around the world, the Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab record brush is an indispensable tool for keeping all of your irreplaceable records clean, quiet, and pristine. Our best-selling brush of all-time, it's also easy to use and easy to clean. When used, it cleans deep into vinyl grooves and helps scrub away all the dirt and grime that accumulate deep on your LPs. The key to the impressive performance is found in Mobile Fidelity's proprietary cleaning pad and ergonomic brush handle. Not only is this the best record brush ever designed, it's also the most reasonably priced. For unsurpassed cleaning, we recommend keeping an unused toothbrush around for cleaning the pads on the record brush. Remember, a clean brush will not transfer debris onto other records.
Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab Super Record Wash
Super Record Wash delivers powerful cleaning and remains perfectly safe for all record surfaces. It is the absolute best one-step record cleaning fluid for use with any record cleaning machine or any manual hand-cleaning system. The alcohol-free fluid incorporates non-toxic, natural degreasers and dirt solvents in combination with quadruple-distilled, hyper-pure water base. While Super Record Wash may not spread out over your LP surface like other record-cleaning solutions, its high-surface-tension water composition is exactly what you want in a solution. Why? The high-surface-tension water not only lifts the debris from the record, it actually holds the debris so that it can be safely and effectively vacuumed away from your record. By contrast, low-surface-tension solutions allow the debris to flow back into the record groove, leaving behind debris, where it can leave a sonic signature and mar performance.
Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab Super Deep Cleaner
Super Deep Cleaner is made to clean very soiled LPs and also functions as a pre-cleaner for extra dirty records. Super Deep Cleaner can even be used for removing pressing debris and "mold release compound" from sealed LPs. It's much more powerful than Super Record Wash and should be used as the first step in your cleaning process. As always, Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab Super Deep Cleaner is made with an exclusive quad-distilled, hyper-pure water base with a mild detergent that leaves no residue and does not damage the surface of your records.
