Furutech deMag LP, Disc, and Cable Demagnetizer !
Highly recommended for either LP's or CD's. It is not subtle the improvements.
Copied from on line:
Quite some aspirations for this device. We already knew of
the theory behind why demagnetizing CDs nets audible results. The aluminum used
for the reflective CD layer is contaminated with ferrous impurities and thus
susceptible to magnetizing. Ditto for the ink used for printing the label. When
the CD spins at up to 500 RPM, these ferrous particles begin to act as magnets
as they are moving in a -- however small -- magnetic field. Let's assume that
after an hour's play, all magnetizable particles have activated. We'll thus
have a fair amount of magnets rotating inside a magnetic field. Little
imagination is required to appreciate that such magnets could have a
detrimental effect on all electronic circuits in the vicinity. As we have
reported in our article on copying CDs to improve their sound quality, a great
deal of the CD system is analog in nature and thus very much prone to external
influences such as moving magnetic fields.
Earlier versions of demagnetizers by Furutech like the RD-2
enjoyed very positive reviews and those who acquired them still seem to use
theirs. The sound clears up, the noise floor drops and the overall music
retrieved from the CD (or any other optical music storage format) becomes
airier, more relaxed and more detailed.
The RD-2 demagnetizer can also be used to demagnetize
cables. Due to its small size, however, one has to either coil the cable to
make it fit on the CD-sized machine or pass it through lengthwise in several
With the DeMag, Furutech attacks those practical drawbacks.
Due to the larger usable area, a batch of discs can now be treated at the same
time. Prepare a preselected collection of discs in advance and your home
concert can proceed without demagging after every disc. Secondly, cables can
now be treated in a more fashionable way. Except for ultra exotic stiffness
cables, most wires can be coiled into a 35cm diameter hoop without issue. The
large working surface also opens up treatment of other device that might get
magnetized in an audio system such as CD pucks for instance.
