“I am pleased to discover that the background noise has now completely disappeared. It is extremely quick and easy to clean an LP using the VC-S and I am able to rattle through a dozen or so of my records in next to no time with excellent results.”
“Of all the RCMs I have tried, Pro-Ject’s VC-S is certainly one of the best and what’s more it is also excellent value.”

Comments of Note:
"The level of fit and finish is excellent, as is the build quality. The switches are neatly set into the machine and don’t protrude as they do on the Moth; and the wooden enclosure is sealed to protect against any accidental spillage that may occur."
"Being a vacuum machine the VCS makes a fair amount of noise in operation, though it’s certainly quieter than its competitors."
"Results are excellent. First on the machine was a new pressing of Frank Turner’s ‘Tape Deck Heart’. The Wash It fluid combined with the VCS did a sterling job of removing the slightly sticky mould release agent covering the vinyl surface leaving it smooth and shiny. The sound after cleaning is crystal clear and quiet"
"The anti-static properties of the Wash It fluid instantly did away with the static charge, and the machine made short work of removing the impurities covering the vinyl surface resulting in another perfectly clean, quiet album."
"...the sound was vastly improved after cleaning. This record also has significant groove wear and was covered in dirt and finger marks – yet after a clean with the VCS it was certainly more than listenable."
"The VCS is a high quality yet affordable cleaning machine that produces outstanding results. It’s well made, relatively compact, reasonably quiet and extremely user friendly. Truth be told, I can’t think of a machine that offers the features and performance of the VCS for such a modest outlay. Highly recommended."

Comments of Note:
DRY CLEANING YOUR vinyl with a brush or cloth is all well and good, but never really gets rid of all the dirt that has sunk deep into those grooves. The only way to ensure your records are in tip-top condition is to give them a wet clean with a dedicated record-cleaning machine. Such devices typically cost a small fortune, until now. Pro-Ject’s VC-S spins your disc in both directions to ensure any cleaning fluid that’s applied is properly removed, while its high-powered vacuum dries vinyl in just two spins. Discs sound every bit as clean as they look.
