What kind of contaminants and debris end up on your stylus? Quite simply, its the same ones that are on your records. Whether airborne or picked up from the surface of the record, there are benefits to cleaning this debris from your stylus with an enzymatic cleaning formula, just like you do with your records.
Early in 2020 Audio Intelligent Vinyl Solutions began development of an enzymatic stylus cleaning formula that will effectively remove protein-based and other debris from the stylus without causing any harm to the stylus or cantilever, and without leaving any sort of film behind.
And most importantly, the AIVS Enzymatic Stylus Cleaner Formula contains no alcohol or any other ingredient that will weaken the stylus-to-cantilever adhesive bond. This very important point was one of Audio Intelligent Vinyl Solutions' primary goals in the development of this product.
Enzymatic Stylus Cleaning Formula is supplied in a generous two ounce dropper bottle with a stylus brush with densely packed non-varnished carbon fiber bristles. This is enough cleaning fluid for up to 1000 cleanings. The simple cleaning procedure entails dispensing one drop of the fluid on the brush and carefully brushing back to front with the tips of the bristles against the stylus. For fibers wrapped around the stylus, a slight downward motion from back to front is usually effective.
Listener Select Carbon Fiber Stylus Brush
The Listener Select carbon fiber stylus brush can be used either dry or with Audio Intelligent Vinyl Solutions Enzymatic Stylus Cleaning Formula to thoroughly clean your stylus.
This brush is made with non-varnished carbon fiber bristles that are packed closely together to trap dust, lint, and other debris. The unique square shape of the bristle head ensures longer contact between the bristles and the stylus than round bristles head brushes.
To use, gently brush from back to front from behind stylus tip four to six times, taking care to brush gently. Do not brush from front to back or side to side. Never use more than one drop of stylus cleaning liquid on the brush. The brush should be carefully rinsed with purified water periodically and left to air dry.
