Select what you want in a record cleaner.
- Convenience in use and storage.
You shouldn't need a separate shelf, elaborate motions or an act of Congress to clean your records. A comfortable, hand-held instrument that works best on a rotating turntable is ideal.
- Effectiveness against micro-dust.
Tiny, invisible dust particles hide in delicate record grooves and can be ground into the vinyl. Only a slanted (directional) fiber using special ultra-small fiber tips can scoop up, rather than rearrange, this micro-dust contamination.
- Effectiveness against chemical contamination.
Fingerprints and vapor-borne oils will deposit into channels of a record groove. Such contamination hides from adhesive rollers and all dry cleaning systems. Only a special fluid plus micro-fibers can safely remove such audible, impacted deposits.
- Total removal of contamination/fluid.
Capillary action-the lifting of fluid by small fiber surface tension-is totally effective. You want to get contamination off the record, along with any fluid traces.
- Lasting construction.
You want quality. A record cleaner can last a lifetime. A plastic wonder can crack into oblivion-or you can purchase the hand-rubbed elegance of milled walnut befitting the rest of your audio system.
- Ultimate economy.
The value of a truly fine record cleaner is justified by the cost of replacing your record collection.
Fifteen dollars is a small investment in long-term protection.
- All of the above.
