If you can afford it and want an US record cleaner I can't see what there is to be on the fence about at this point. It's simply the best available for numerous reasons and it's a product that has a greater unanimity of happy owners that most products I've seen. As far as combining aesthetics, functionality and performance it's practically produced a new class of record cleaner all by itself. Now others are playing catch up. I can't think of reading anyone who wasn't overall happy they bought one.
