Overview

Our take on the Okki Nokki RCM

Tender loving care for your classic records

I love finding old, classic vinyl in back rooms and at yard sales, but it can be difficult to get them cleaned up and sounding beautiful again. The Okki Nokki RCM record cleaning machine makes the job of cleaning old records easy and efficient. It looks like a turntable, but instead of dropping a needle, it's a custom vacuum arm that suctions up used cleaning fluid to safely remove dust and grime. 

Product Highlights:

  • record cleaning machine keeps vinyl looking and sounding great
  • 12" vacuum cleaning tube arm included
  • quiet, cool-running vacuum and turntable motor
  • cleaning fluid and soft goat hair brush included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

What's in the Box:

  • Record cleaning machine (black)
  • Locking clamp (installed)
  • 118" AC power cord (IEC 3-prong)
  • Record Cleaning Fluid concentrate (50ml)
  • Aluminum suction arm
  • 4" Wooden brush
  • Silicone ring
  • Owner's Manual

This is just what I was needing! Works perfectly. It makes it quick and easy to clean records. It only takes about 2 minutes to do both sides. And best of all it is the most effective way (without spending thousands) of getting down into the grooves.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I did a lot of research on record cleaning machines before I finally settled on the Okki Nokki. I've bought audio equipment from Crutchfield in the past and my experience has been that they are very careful about the products they offer, so I was pretty sure that I would be pleased. I wasn't sure what to expect from an RCM, but I have a large library of older albums that need more help than an old discwasher was able to give. I can only say WOW! My wife and I have been amazed at the difference that a good cleaning makes. I don't see how you could get this kind of results without using a record vacuum, and if you don't want to spend an obscene amount of money the Okki Nokki seems to be the best choice. It took a few albums before I figured out the best way to use it, but it's really simple once you get the hang of it. I'm now convinced that a record cleaning machine is a necessity if you're serious about listening to vinyl. It's a little bit time consuming, but the results are worth it!

Pros: Crutchfield, Quality, Easy To Use, Quiet, Reasonable Size, Good Price.

Cons: Takes time to do it right.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I admit that I was skeptical about how this record cleaner would work. After using it, I am really glad that I overcame my reluctance and purchased it. My 30 to 40 year old records sounded their age before I cleaned them. After using the Okki Noki, they all sound much better and many of them sound brand new. If you follow the directions, it works great.

Pros: Easy to use after quick learning curve. Works as advertised.

Cons:

Features

Overview: The Okki Nokki RCM II record cleaning machine restores your record collection to its original glory. The RCM II comes with cleaning fluid concentrate, a goat's hair brush, plastic vacuum arm, and record clamp.

Design: The RCM II features a powder-coated aluminum chassis which is resistant to liquids or cleaning agents. Any heat generated by the vacuum motor is dissipated through the chassis. The solid construction makes the unit less susceptible to structural vibrations. The 11.5" diameter platter is raised and easy to access. The neoprene platter covering is easy to clean and resists moisture. The unit has a master power switch on the back, with a three-way motor switch (forward, reverse, off) and a vacuum switch on the front.

Dual Direction Motor: The RCM II's motor can rotate the record in both directions, clockwise and counter-clockwise. It turns at approximately 15 rpm.

Cleaning Fluid: The supplied cleaning fluid lifts dirt and debris out of the grooves. The fluid comes in a concentrate, and should be mixed with purified water before applying to your records. The entire 50ml bottle concentrate mixes with a liter of water (1.06 quarts).

Vacuum Cleaner: The RCM II's built-in vacuum removes both dirt and fluid from the surface of the record.

Procedure: The record should be placed on the platter and secured with the clamp. After removing obvious dirt and debris from the surface of the record, the fluid is applied to the record and spread evenly using the goat's hair brush. Pressing down gently to flex the bristles of the brush, you should hold the brush on the record for 3 to 4 revolutions in the forward direction, then repeat in the reverse direction. Next, the fluid and dirt is vacuumed off of the record with the plastic vacuum arm. Typically, two revolutions is required for removing the fluid. The fluid is pulled into a reservoir, which should be emptied after 20 to 30 cleanings.

Optional Accessories: Okki Nokki offers the following accessories for the RCM II, including an acrylic dustcover, dry cleaning brush (with extra velvet cleaning strips), cleaning fluid (50ml), and a replacement vacuum arm.
