"[...] the Double Matrix Professional is the most convenient option on the market. [...] if you have a lot of (dirty) records, it is the cleaner I would recommend."
Jonathan Valin, High-End Analog Roundup
"Most well-made record cleaners do an excellent job of cleaning LPs; what the DM Professional offers is an increase in convenience, reliability, and functionality that puts it in a class of its own."
Jonathan Valin, The Absolute Sound
"Without fail, it addresses every single issue I have about record cleaning machines, and even possesses non-essential qualities such as looks and build quality worthy of a fine turntable."
