"...L'Art du Son, a record-cleaning fluid that really does sound different from the more conventional isopropyl-based cleaners. It contains no alcohol, is biodegradable, and can't hurt you, though I wouldn't advise drinking it! The conventional alcohol-based fluid deposited an electronic glaze over the sound, one particularly noticeable on the upper frequencies. This glaze increases the apparent 'definition' in the same way that most transistorized amplifiers do, and to these ears, emphasizes the electronic nature of the sound. With the L'Art du Son, that glaze is gone and just the music is left. I like this stuff! I couldn't imagine going back to the conventional cleaning fluids." - Audio Guru Harry Pearson, The Absolute Sound, June/July 2005
