Clearaudio has launched its first record cleaner in the Double Matrix Professional Sonic at £3,250. Like a camera with both automatic and manual functions, the Double Matrix Professional Sonic offers the option to operate the whole cleaning process at the touch of a button or to control each step via an operating panel.
The cleaning head automatically adapts to records of different diameters and thicknesses, and the microfiber cleaning strips are “effortless” to change. An LED light indicates the cleaning fluid level in the internal reservoir and, as an additional precaution, the suction turbine features overheating protection.
Made from “high quality heavy-duty materials”, the Double Matrix Professional Sonic is designed for continuous operation, so that professional users can clean complete record collections. And yet it is “incredibly easy to use and maintain”. The machine also includes sonic vibration for deep cleaning of the groove to remove pressing residue or persistent dirt. It accomodates LPs, EPs and singles, simultaneously cleans both sides in one washing program and can turn clockwise or anticlockwise. During manual operation, the speed is variable for the best cleaning result and it has a super clean mode for seriously filthy vinyl and comes with a record clamp.
