Our Vacuum Pump Systems are far superior to the systems sold by QRS and others for three main reasons. One, we use a two-stage electronic speed controller. This gives the user control over the volume of the music and the speed of rewind. Other systems have a single-stage controller. So, the rolls rewind exceedingly fast, which can cause damage to older rolls in a hurry. Secondly, our system is much more quiet. We have spent years developing the box and internal motor mounts. And, unlike our competitors, we use a dual-stage impeller. This creates more vacuum at a lower motor speed, decreasing the noise factor. Thirdly, our system is unconditionally guaranteed for one full year for the electronics and five years for the pump motor. Others offer a 30-90 day guarantee, period! Our system is more expensive than the other systems and worth every penny!!! (The average life span of our vacuum pump motor is 30 years. Our competitors systems haven't even been in existence for ten years. How long will they last? No one knows. Why take a chance?)

Since "Player-Care" is an internet business, I prefer that we correspond via E-Mail (click here to fill out the 'Request Form'). However, if I'm not in the middle of some other activity, you can reach me at 732-840-8787. But please understand that during the hours from 8AM-5PM EST (Mon-Sat), I'm generally quite busy. So, I probably won't answer the phone. If you get the answering machine, please leave a detailed message stating the reason for your call. Also, repeat your name and phone number clearly and distinctly. By necessity, I prioritize everything in my life. And, if you call and just leave your name and number, and ask me to call you back, it might be a day or two before I return your call. Why? Because I don't know why you want me to call and I might not be prepared to assist you in an effective and efficient manner. If you leave me an E-Mail address (which I prefer), spell it out phonetically. The more you do to help me, the more I can help you in return. Don't rush. You have four minutes to record your message.
