Winner of The 2012 Absolute Sound Editor's Choice Award! The Okki Nokki RCM is an exceptionally well-designed device created specifically for cleaning all vinyl recordings. The Okki Nokki is a quality product made in Germany and consists of a heavy-duty motor/turntable and vacuum system encased in a compact aluminum chassis. The motor function provides for ultra-quiet forward and reverse operation. When used with the supplied goat hair cleaning brush, the forward/reverse turntable motion allows for extremely effective groove scrubbing. Once cleaned, the record can be vacuumed using the aluminum suction arm. The residual dirt and fluid is then removed by suction and transferred into the internal liquid reservoir, which has a sensor that will shut off the machine when full. Dedicated suction arms for use with 7” and 10” records are available as an option. Accessories supplied with the machine include a standard 12” LP suction arm, goat hair cleaning brush, record clamp, grounded detachable AC cord and a small bottle of cleaning fluid concentrate that requires mixing with a liter of purified water (available from a pharmacy) – not recommended for shellac or acetate recordings. An acrylic dustcover is available at time of purchase or as an optional accessory.
Stereophile Review of Okki Nokki Record Cleaner "The Sumiko Okki Nokki cleaned the living crap out of my records. I don't know if it was that strange, fragrant fluid, that soft-bristled brush, or what, but the Okki Nokki seemed more efficient at cleaning records than my VPI"
Goldmine Magazine Review of Okki Nokki Record Cleaner "One of the best tweaks to any vinyl-playing system is starting with clean records. Give an LP a good bath, and you’ll hear it at its best. Before you upgrade your turntable or re-tip your cartridge, be sure your records are clean. Do that and listening to vinyl will be 'Okki Nokki'"
