Pangea Audio, a developer and manufacturer of high performance, high value audio accessories, announced today a new edition of its acclaimed Record Doctor vacuum record cleaning machines that simultaneously cleans both sides of a record, saving time and effort over current versions. 

Scheduled to ship in mid-December, the new Record Doctor X (SRP: $599.95) features the same vacuum motor and cleaning strip as current models, with the added benefit of a vacuum swing arm that vacuums the top surface while the bottom is vacuumed via a slot under the strip. In addition, the new model includes a bi-directional rotation motor, alleviating the need to turn the record by hand, and a screw-on 5” clamp that safely secures and protects the record.

“For over 20 years, Record Doctor vacuum cleaning machines have represented the perfect blend of convenience, efficiency, and value,” says Steve Niemi, Director of Global Sales, Pangea Audio, LLC. “Record Doctor X continues the tradition while offering a giant leap forward in terms of convenience and overall ease-of-use.”

Arriving at the top of Pangea Audio Distributing’s Record Doctor record cleaning machine line-up, the new Record Doctor X remains faithful to the original design, with an easy-to-place compact cabinet and a handy storage tank for the simple removal of spent record cleaning fluids. 

The new model goes several steps further by adding a powerful bi-directional turning motor, a screw-down clamp system that protects the LP’s label, and a new vacuum swing arm. 

Like the majority of Pangea Audio products, the new Record Doctor X is shipped in sturdy eco-friendly, recyclable packaging, bypassing the messy and harmful Styrofoam used by much of the competition. 

“The so-called vinyl resurgence blossomed into a full-blown, thriving category with more music lovers returning to the format every day,” adds Mr. Niemi. “Record Doctor X gives this growing audience a super-efficient, cost-effective tool for cleaning and preserving records for years of listening pleasure.” 

The new Record Doctor X record cleaning machine is available in both carbon-fiber vinyl and high-gloss black finishes. Buy at Crutchfield for $599.

If they really didn’t upgrade the motor beware the new, significantly higher price point for what amounts to convenience features. I’m on my second Record Doctor in a year – the motor on the first one blew after very light use. After significant difficulty obtaining warranty support (I had to go through sales because they don’t seem to staff their warranty support phone line) Pangea/Audio Advice sent me a new one which has been performing fine. Even new and performing well they are loud. When I announce I’m going to clean some records my kids groan and exit the basement TV area where I do the work, or throw pillows over their heads.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
