DS Audio's ST-50 Stylus Cleaner features a special Urethane resin cleaning gel housed inside a high quality, nickel plated aluminum case!

DS Audio first accessory, the ST-50 Stylus Cleaner utilizes a specially designed Urethane gel, the same gel used in the industrial-grade clean room conditions. The Urethane prevents dust from entering the clean room by absorbing it in the micro level. The high-quality aluminum material used for the casing features a nickel plated surface. Real leather is used on the base of the casing for no damage to your platter.

"To use, simply remove the cover, carefully place it on the platter and gently lower the arm onto the pad, lifting and lowering a few times after which the stylus should be 100% dirt and dust free without the use of brushing or potentially dangerous liquids. Some manufacturers that use cement to bond styli to cantilevers, such as Ortofon specifically recommend against using solvent based liquids that can dissolve the bonding material. ...if you care at all about design elegance as well as effective stylus cleaning, the DS ST-50 is the ticket." - Michael Fremer,

• Cleaning gel made by Urethane Resin developed specially for the micro-dust cleaning purpose in the clean-room.
• Cleans your stylus at your pre-set needle pressure of the tone arm (tracking force).

Case Dimensions: 1 5/8" x 1 5/8" x 3/16" (1/2" Tall with Cover)
Cleaning Urethane Gel Dimensions: 1 1/8" x 1 1/8"

Put ST-50 on the turntable, and gently place the needle onto it a few times. ST-50 puts no excess force and pressure to the needle for the cleaning. ST-50 is good not only our optical cartridges, but also MM and MC cartridges. This clean room Urethane gel cleans the needle tip to the optimal as you see here. This Urethan gel regains its dust cleaning power to the optimal by gently washing it under tap water and letting it dry for 30 minutes.
