    After using the Spin Clean for a while I think vacuum cleaning is very important for vinyl. My questions are
    1- Is Okki Nokki worth it?
    2- have you ever seen the machine be on sale during Black Friday or something? because I really want to get it ASAP



    THANKS!

    I love mine. Got it after over 10 years with a Record Doctor. Look for them used. I bought one over 25% off from someone getting out of vinyl.

    Yes it's worth it. Never seen it on sale as part of a Black Friday sort of thing, but I have seen it discounted from time to time but that's usually $50 or so. Nothing huge. Lowest Ive seen, as a regular price, without lid, is $650 CAD. The lid usually adds $100 to it.

    FYI the Okki Nokki RCM is currently out of production. You might be able to get a good deal on a demo or old stock unit but there's a new model (supposedly) coming in the fall.

    @Blackie hadn't heard that news. Might be worth the wait for anyone looking to get one. Any info on the new machine?

    The Okki Nokki is a great machine had one for a decade, loved it then I bought a Loricraft and records I thought were OK became perfect.
    I admit it is three times the price.

    I suggest visit your local dealer if they have demo units for sale. I got mine 50% off retail and never looked back.

    I got mine for about 220$ used. Wait for a deal if you have patience.
    The fluid is also very important, invest in something good and pure water to dilute it in.

    What’s the difference if I get a promo one?

    Doesn’t the fluid come with the machine?

    If you buy a new one yes, but you will keep having to buy more and I would not recommend the Okki fluid over other alternatives like Lart Du Son which is what I use.

    Usually the demo deals will or will not have the Okki Nokki fluid. When I bought mine it came with a different fluid. Heck, I went to check out a different dealer and they have a L'Art Du Son which I also got for $20 demo retail $50 with only a little fluid used.

    Check several dealers and see if they have deals and atleast you could try it as well.

    Probably join a local Audio Society which I did near your place where they demo or have social gatherings once in a while. That's where I met people, dealers and company owners as well.

    Where did you get that info? The current version is in stock everywhere I looked and I found no mention of a new model anywhere.

    You keep asking. Have you searched for “Okki Nokki in Montreal”? Turns out that HiFi Pro has it:

    Okki Nokki - HIFIPRO

    ... among others in the city.

    Okki Nokki Product News
    At Munich High End, Okki Nokki released detailed information regarding their next-generation Record Cleaning Machine. Using a smaller number of bespoke, purpose-engineered parts, this new unit will be even more rugged and reliable than the highly-regarded RCM II, now out of production. The new RCM is due to arrive in September, with other products following close behind. Stay tuned…"
