During 2016, Pro-Ject Audio Systems’ first vinyl record cleaner, the VC-S, was launched as an “affordable vacuum record-cleaning machine”.

After listening to the extensive feedback given by their customers over the past three years, Pro-Ject says that they have learned a lot about this market, resulting in the release of two new products.

Pro-Ject VC-E & VCS2 ALU

The two newly introduced Pro-Ject vinyl record cleaners, VC-E and VCS2 ALU, represent an evolution of their original design, and addresses everything they have learned over recent years. Pro-Ject say that the new machines have better cabinets, better clamps (including an aluminium one for the VCS2 ALU), easier operation, less noise and a better overall experience.

The VC-S2 ALU is a direct replacement to the original VC-S, but the VC-E has been replaced as an even more affordable, compact solution.
