Had a VPI 16.5 that I purchased new for years and it was a great machine. Gave it to a fellow vinylholic audiobud and purchased the ON a few months ago. It works well, does a great job cleaning, is quieter and I am overall happy with it, albeit with one exception: upon turning on the vaccum, I have to push the vacuum wand down onto the record (VPI goes down on the record upon switching on the vacuum) and sometimes after shutting the vacuum off, the wand fails to automatically spring back up so I have to "assist" it. I think the machined tolerances of the delrin parts are a bit too tight; it would be nice if this part of the machine functioned as does the VPI. Otherwise I am happy with it and the metal case is MUCH better than the VPI.
Had my Okki for 3 months after owning a Spin Clean for 2 years. Love the ON. It cleans better and is soooo easy to use. My complaint with the SC is the setup and cleanup. Also, the grunge from the first couple lps hangs suspended in the SC, necessitating frequent replacement of the cleaning fluid. And lastly, using the SC for a single lp is not very practical. Cleaning an lp with the ON is simple and quick. The ON has none of the above negatives. And let's not forget the price of an Okki vs that of a VPI 6.5.
