About Knosti Disco Antistat Record Cleaning System
Most vinyl-lovers are aware of the sonic benefits of playing a clean record. However, no matter how much you spend on a Turntable, Tonearm and Cartridge or the care you may take with the set-up to deliver the best possible sound from your turntable, it’s ultimately the LP itself that is the source of the sound. Therefore, effective and proper cleaning of your record has a tremendous influence on the end sound that you hear from your speakers.
Easy To Use: However, most people don’t clean their LPs as often as they should because they think record cleaning is too much like hard work...which with the Knosti Disco Antistat record cleaning machine it definitely is not! Plus, most of us want to spend our time playing records, not cleaning them.
The Knosti Disco Antistat has simplified the procedure and made the task less of a grind…and doesn't cost a fortune by comparison with full-blown record cleaning machines like those from American company VPI.
Efficient & Affordable: Developed in Germany in 1978, the Knosti Disco-Antistat has simplified the procedure and made the task less of a grind. It has become one of the world’s most popular record cleaning tools, due to its efficiency, ease of operation and affordable price. Its success is also due to the fact that it bridges the gap between the very cheap but mainly ineffective ‘cloth and fluid’ group of record cleaners and the full-blown esoteric and expensive vacuum machines like those made by American company VPI.
The Knosti Disco Antistat has been on the market unchanged since 1978! That alone is testimony to its effectiveness. It removes the dirt and dries the record without leaving any residues. It also minimises static electricity which is a big problem affecting record performance. If you are into or back into vinyl, then you need, yes need one.
How Does Knosti Disco Antistat Work?
This fantastic manually-operated machine is a dream come true for vinylphiles around the world and bridges the gap between the 'cloth and fluid' group of cleaners and the expensive machines. How does it work?
- The label clamp is screwed onto the record until firm, to protect the label against the fluid. The record (with clamp attached) is then inserted into the cleaning trough, which has been filled to the height of the goat hair brushes with Mixture.
- With the clamp's spindle resting in the notches on the top of the cleaning trough, the record is rotated through it's axis, several turns in each direction to dislodge dirt.
- The cleaned record is then placed in the drying rack until completely dry, before popping it into a new inner sleeve (or playing it!).
- The used Mixture is then poured back into the bottle through the filter papers in the filter assembly for re-use.
If you want a highly effective record cleaner that's silent in operation and easy and quick to use? ...you're in the right place!
Knosti In The News
"Not only is it remarkably good at cleaning your LPs but it's quick and easy to use and there's none of the noise and palaver associated with more elaborate alternatives. It's by far the cheapest wet cleaner on the market and to be frank, it's as effective as any other." Hi Fi Choice
"The results were visually impressive. All visible finger marks and dirt had been removed leaving a satisfyingly glossy surface. Before and after playings proved that this system does a good job. Surface noise was drastically reduced and clarity improved to a surprising extent." Hi Fi News
"We can't recommend this gadget too highly." AV Review
Important Note: Do not use other types of fluids in the Knosti as they may cause the brushes to rust.
