Pro-Ject VC-S RCM just arrived

Post by Rock Ball » 30 May 2019 02:16

I just received a new VC-S today and noticed a few odd things. I wonder if others have received the same items.

The record clamp is different from the pictures shown where I ordered it. I actually like this style much better. There are three o-rings on its handle, allowing for a good grip.

I noticed that the black replacement adhesive strips are totally different from the white ones that are on the vacuum arm. What could be the reason for this?

Upon closer inspection, the rigid pads on the vacuum arm seem to be dangerous for the record surface.

I think the rigid backing may scrape against the record when the vacuum arm is sucked down against the record.

I'm hesitant to even try cleaning a record.

Do those of you with this system experience any issues with the vacuum arm pads scraping the record surface?

I just received replacement strips that I ordered on Amazon. The picture showed the white ones, but I received the black ones.

Anyone have any experience with this?
