Non-static platter mat consisting of fine granules (rubber, cork). Made to effectively suppress the typical resonance generated in vinyl records during playback as well as to provide a silent foundation.
We’ve found it to be quite a notable improvement!
Includes mini screwdriver and calibration weight.
The premiere product from L'Art du Son is a new and revolutionary record cleaning solution developed after years of research by founder and analog devotee Martina Schoener.
A highly effective solution to grime and dust inside the record groove. The carbon fibre filaments and a soft velvet cleaning pad remove the unwanted materials at a stroke leaving the groove clean, prolonging the life of both disc and stylus
The key to its great vinyl cleaning is found in Mobile Fidelity's proprietary cleaning pad and ergonomic brush handle. It's been designed for multi-purpose use: it can be used as a wet-cleaning brush (we recommend using it as part of your intensive record cleaning machine workout) or as simply the best dry record brush ever designed. One cleaning pad will clean hundreds of your favorite LPs. For best results, we recommend the use of a simple single step record cleaning fluid like our best selling fluids from Record Research Labs. Not only is this the best record brush ever designed, it's also the cheapest! Stock up on a few of these brushes and keep your records in pristine condition.
For cleaning: We recommend keeping an unused toothbrush around for cleaning the pads on the Mobile Fidelity LP Brush. Remember...a clean brush is a happy brush...and one that will not transfer debris onto other records.
The pads are simple to replace, gently peel off the old pad, replace it with the new pad, and you're ready to get back to cleaning records.
Mobile Fidelity recommends replacing the pads on your Record Brush after cleaning approximately 100-150 records or when the pad begins to show wear.
Completely safe for all vinyl, Super Record Wash will leave your LPs sounding great!
Completely alcohol free, Super Record Wash incorporates non-toxic, natural degreasers and dirt solvents in combination with quadruple-distilled water. MoFi Super Record Wash will keep your records sounding quiet and looking great! It's extremely powerful, but still perfectly safe for all record surfaces.
PURE Record Rinse is the purest water you can find for cleaning records. Ultra-high purity PURE Record Rinse is also used as the base of our other record cleaning fluids and is perfect for use as the final rinse step before putting LPs back into their sleeves (preferably into MoFi inner sleeves!).
Every serious vinyl fan knows you should never rinse your records with tap water. Tap water contains trace minerals, chemicals and microscopic organic matter all of which can be deposited in freshly cleaned grooves. Bottled water comes from either the same sources as tap water or from natural springs which have an even larger amount of minerals."Purified" water isn't subject to the same restrictions and regulations that apply to food or drugs, so "purified" doesn't necessarily mean PURE. Distilled water without additives is harder to find than ever and even water that has been distilled once or twice can still have contaminants.
Mobile Fidelity PLUS Enzyme Cleaner for all Vinyl LPs is a revolution in record cleaning! PLUS uses enzymes to more completely clean records than virtually any other fluid available.
Most sound degrading contaminants found on records are organic in nature, oils and sweat from hands, skin, hair and other minuscule particles of dust are attracted by electrostatic charges on the vinyl and can become deeply embedded in the vinyl. The best way to remove these is with an enzyme specifically designed for this purpose. By coating the play surface with PLUS Enzyme Cleaning Fluid and allowing it to sit on the record surface for 3-5 minutes, the enzymes will break the particles down and loosen them from the grooves.
Highly purified, high surface tension water is used as the base for PLUS - water that will bead up, removing contaminants and holding them in the water beads, rather than allowing them to settle back into the grooves.Using PLUS is a revelation, even on a clean record, the improvement is shocking. Drastically lower noise floor, increased dynamic range, richer tonal balance and clear undistorted peaks. Put simply, PLUS reveals more of the information that's been hiding in the grooves.
Zerostat 3 produces negative and positive ions that couple with the positive and negative static charges on an object’s surface, effectively neutralizing them.
The Zerostat 3 antistatic gun will produce dramatic static reduction for periods of time measured in hours, not minutes or seconds. And unlike certain antistatic sprays, the Zerostat gun will not leave any polymer resides behind on the record surfaces. We have found the Zerostat 3 to be equally effective in the removal of dust from plastic dust covers.
Use of the Zerostat 3 gun prior to the playing of a record will often times eliminate, or at least greatly reduce the "snap, crackle, and pop" from electronic discharge of the surface charge buildup that can occur.
Hold the Zerostat 3 pistol about 12 inches away from your record. Squeeze the trigger slowly; a powerful stream of positive ions projects over a spread of about 16 inches. Release it slowly, and negative ions are produced.
Regular use of Zerostat 3 can release dirt and dust on records, eliminating pops and crackles caused by static 'hot spots.' It's also ideal for reducing static charges on CDs and DVDs.
