I certainly hope you review this asap. That massive aluminum suction tube looks fantastic and will mostly likely not shatter.

Keep in mind intros at this show usually mean a delay until Fall for actual introduction but we'll be on the case!

Please request a review model asap. This could be a game changer based on the price point. The availability of replacement parts will also be key as that seems to have been a sore point with the Okki Nokki in the US.

For $399.00 almost a no-brainer. It has a vacuum, an arm tube, collection tray....And it looks good!

but got it almost a year and a half ago and doing fine. I like my VPI however, this RCM looks to have a neoprene or rubber platter which I would like better than the cork on mine. I also like the aluminum tube (no worries about cracking or breaking). I wonder about replacement parts though. The VPIs (at least the 16.5) are user serviceable with plenty of replacement parts available and VPI service is good too from what I hear.

I was about to replace my haggard and now broken Cleaner and now this...
Now I am eagerly hoping for a more in depth review before availability.
