  • Onzow Stylus Cleaner Sale

    Found this stylus cleaner on sale. Looks silly but it really works. Amazing how quickly all those little black dots appear and add up on the gel. One of my go to accessories.
    This item not eligible for any further discount offers! The Absolute Sound 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2013-2016 Editors' Choice Award Winner! Stereophile Recommended Component! Would you wash your car with steel pads? How about dusting with sandpaper? Certainly you wouldn't clean your stylus with a Brillo pad. Except that most of you are probably using a brush about that harsh. The Zerodust cleans your delicate stylus without using brushes or fluids. Clean your stylus simply and effectively with the Zerodust from Japan. This space-age polymer bubble allows you to simply lower your stylus onto its surface, then quickly lift the arm lever and you're done! Watch as the stylus tip slowly sinks into the baby soft surface, leaving behind an impression with the stylus debris left behind! The Zerodust will extend stylus life and enhance fidelity, and it can be used indefinitely. Comes complete with a magnifier to inspect your stylus! The Zerodust is made of newly developed ultra soft plastic is unprecedented high performance cleaner and easy to use. As the cleaning element of Zerodust is softer and has 15 times more elasticity than a baby skin, this mysterious material will never damage your delicate stylus. This is a blob of clear jelly surrounded by a thin membrane on which you touch the needle. For some reason the membrane attracts dust like a magnet, and the softness of the gel allows you to do it without damaging the mechanism. It also comes with a magnifier which is perfect for making sure the needle is clean. Does it work? Almost as well as the best liquid stylus cleaners, without the worry of migration of the liquid up into the cartridge, thus damaging the mechanism. So now, I clean the stylus with a liquid at the beginning of the session, then use the Zerodust the rest of the time. Works like a charm. - Enjoythemusic.com review A circular mound of semi-gelatinous goop in a box, onto which you gently lower your stylus, said Michael Fremer. Use is simple: After a few seconds, you lift the stylus, and it's as clean and residue-free as the proverbial whistle... Upside: no potentially dangerous brushing, and no fluids. Downside if you like to leave your platter spinning, you'll have to stop it each time, or find another steady surface upon which to perform the operation. - Stereophile Magazine, April 2003 Vol.25 No.3 Directions: Lightly press a stylus tip once or twice onto the Zerodust cleaning element, and pull it up. The element accepts the tip very naturally and finely removes dusts over the tip for noise and muddy free sound. Dusts now stick to the cleaning element leaving no scum thanks to so designed ingredients of the element material. Zerodust container case top works as a magnifier convenient for precise check of the tip condition before and after cleaning. When the cleaning element begins looking a little grungy, just wash it in warm water with a little bit of neutral detergent. Dust is easily removed, and you can use Zerodust over and over for a very long time.

      I've done it with a clean sponge and a little soap and water. I guess you could use on of those special lint free cloths too. But this is so cheap, buy one and put one away.

        I use a touch of dish soap and water then a quick rinse and dry with a microfiber cloth. Seems to work ok.

            I clean mine with a dab of soap and rinse with water. Agree it's a great product, I use on my cartridges.

            As for sale price of about $40.00. This item is always on Ebay year round for approximately $36.00 and shipped free. I've bought a half dozen, they are shipped from Japan and I always received as advertised. Like Myles posted, buy a couple and dispose as they get old.

                For me when it is covered in black dots. Always keep the cover on or it will collect dust like it's going out of style.

                  After I wash it, all the black dots are gone so i guess mine is still good as new?

                    I've had mine for several years and it stills cleans up perfectly. An absolutely indispensible tool.
