Stein Music DE-3 LP Conditioner/Demagnetizer for use with LP, CD and Audio Cables. This is a demo unit which would come with manufacturer warranty.
DE3 LP Conditioner
The DE-3 LP Conditioner reduces and eliminates magnetic and electrostatic accumulations and material tensions, especially on vinyl discs, cables and connector accessories, for a unique sound image enhancement.
Eight magnetic field generators are applied in a perfect operational and intensity sequence. The effect is physically measurable, thorough, long term stable and acoustically immediately comprehensible.
As with his smaller brother DE-2 CD, great emphasis was placed on maximum usability and efficiency. Each medium in a high quality collection - especially Heavy Vinyls and High Bit Japan CDs - should undergo this distinguished demagnetizing process in order to unleash its full potential. We also recommend individual conditioning prior to any high quality data backup of your LPs and CDs.
From Positive Feedback:
Looks like Mercedes Benz built this for Stein. This large black demagnetizing platform is the best of its type on planet Earth. CDs are smoother and more analog-sounding, while LPs are quieter and cleaner! As it does not have a spindle in the center, you zap your LPs [and CDs] in their inner sleeve, thus keeping them dust free. Excellent! The one-button turn-on-and-activate system is brilliant. The demag affect is consistent and extremely musical. It even has a tone to let you know it is zapping away. I have tried all of these demag devices on the market, big and small, and I think that this DE3 is the KING. I preferred it musically in a direct comparison to the big Furutech Demag on ALL media.
Having said that, I should say that the Stein is a lot more money than the Furutech, which remains a very good value at its price point. The Stein is a must-own if cost is NO object! The DE3 is the most neutral, best looking, best performing, most powerful demag of them all. The MSRP is $3495.
