Comments of Note:
"The Spin Clean is an effective remover of bacon-frying noises. The pops and crackles that plague 'VG' ['Very Good'] eBay albums are generally reduced..."
"A sure sign of its effectiveness is the sheer amount of dark grey gak that lines the bottom of the yellow bath after working on just a few 'clean-ish' albums; if all that smoky residue was on the disc, no wonder it sounded like the musicians were standing round a bonfire."

"Does a fantastic job and it's amazing to see the dirt collected, even with apparently clean records."

"Well it's a nifty little device that is inexpensive and is designed to remove all that crud from your LPs using a specially formulated cleaning solution..."
"After a few LPs were done I looked into the bath and sure enough, the water was slightly dis-coloured and a little muck had appeared at the bottom. After 10 LPs there was an alarming amount of dirt and fluff in the base of the bath!"
"Well it was beyond dispute that the Spin Clean effectively removes dirt and fluff you'd not normally see on an LP surface..."

Spin Clean, Hi-Fi Choice, Oct 2011

Hi-Fi Choice, October 2011

Feature: 'Mini Test | Cleaning Accessories'
Score: 5/5 Stars. Group Test Winner

Comments of Note:
"...it's basically a plastic bath in which you quite literally wash LPs."
"The clever feature, which we really liked, is that disc immersion depth is set by a pair of rollers, which can be put in position to cater to 12-inch, 10-inch or 7-inch discs - this saves the bother of fitting a centre spindle and clamp."
"...running costs are minimal."
"It's simple and quick to use and results are excellent, among the best we've encountered from any LP cleaner."
Verdict - "Smaller, lighter and cheaper than a vacuum cleaning machine and hardly more bother, the supplied fluid does a great job with all vinyl and shellac discs."

"A Record Cleaner for the Regular Guy"
"It’s not as technically complex as a VPI, ClearAudio or Loricraft machine, but it’s damn good and it actually does a better job at ground in fingerprints than my Loricraft does."
"The Spin Clean II is the ultimate in simplicity; there is no electric motor to burn out and no vacuum hoses to loosen. Just mix up some cleaning solution, dump it in the tank and you are ready to begin."
"The best feature of the Spin Clean is that it cleans both sides of your record at the same time."
"If you’ve never used a record cleaning machine, you’ll be amazed at how much quieter your records sound after a pass through the Spin Clean."
"Like any other aspect of audiophilia, you can get as obsessed as you’d like to with record cleaning, but if you never do more than use a Spin Clean, you’re way ahead of the game."
"If you have a turntable and you don’t have a Spin Clean, you need one. If you’re a maniacal LP collector with a top of the line RCM and you don’t have a Spin Clean, you need one too. This is an accessory that no vinyl lover should be without."
