The Audio Intelligent Vinyl Solutions Enzymatic Formula (Step 1) is a highly effective Cleaner!
The award-winning and highly reviewed Audio Intelligent Vinyl Solutions product line was developed with the goal of offering a record cleaning product line that poses no risk of damage to both vinyl or shellac records, and that works well in removing a wide range of contaminants. All of the product offerings work based on the principle of using purpose-designed enzyme compounds to gently and effectively dissolve record contaminants, including protein-based contaminants, bacterial growth, and record pressing release compounds. Our research has shown than any number of contaminants present in the environment can reach the record surface and pollute it. This causes noisy playback and can sometimes lead to permanent damage to the record.
All of our formulas are mixed using only pure, laboratory-grade components, including the water product. Audio Intelligent Vinyl Solutions Ultra-Pure Water is more that 50 times purer than distilled water, and is used in all of our record cleaning products. Our research has found that to be highly effective, a record cleaning product must introduce no additional residue into the cleaning process. None of our products contain any type of detergent or lubricant which can affect sound and can also trap contaminants on the record.
Designed to loosen and dissolve a wide range of contaminants, including protein-based, organic, and release compounds, the Enzymatic Formula requires follow up cleaning with either the Audio Intelligent Vinyl Solution Super Cleaner Formula or the Premium Archivist Formula for a thoroughly clean record.
The Audio Intelligent Vinyl Solutions Enzymatic Formula (Step 1) is used as an initial cleaner or a soak, the Enzymatic Formula is most effective when the records surface is completely coated with a film of the product and light brushing and agitation of the product is performed. Using this method for several minutes allows time for the enzyme compounds to loosen and dissolve the contaminants present on the record. For extremely dirty records and records that have release compounds present we suggest either repeating the cleaning process or allowing the Enzymatic Formula to soak on the record for an extended period of time.
The Audio Intelligent Vinyl Solutions fluids work well with record cleaners!
"I can say that the AI fluids are reasonably priced, easy to apply and (especially) to spread, clean extremely well, and leave no audible residue." - Michael Fremer, Stereophile, December 2007
"Trust me, once you hear what Audio Intelligent Vinyl Solutions can unleash from your records, youll be hooked too. Ive never heard anything better period!" - Greg Weaver, Positive Feedback Online, Issue 29
"I've now cleaned quite a lot of LPs with Audio Intelligent Vinyl Solutions. I have to say the results are spectacular. I have never heard such a drop in background noise. Most of my records are quasi CD-like silent now. Those I thought were beyond hope, even after cleaning them countless times with a number of other commercially available record cleaning products, are suddenly enjoying a second life. I don't know how these very understated fluids do that, but AIVS is just amazing." - Audio Intelligent Vinyl Solutions customer Jean-Baptiste in Great Britain
"The AIVS fluids produced vinyl that was visually and aurally as clean as it could get, often restoring the inky-black luster of the LPs as well... The AIVS fluids are clearly more economical, and you will spend less time using them and more time listening. I plan to use these AIVS products from this point forward, which makes them literally a Reviewers' Choice." - Marc Mickelson, Soundstage!, January 2008
