"...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, Issue 154

L’Art du Son Professional Audio Record Cleaning Liquid
by Robert H. Levi

Record cleaning fluid from Germany with a French name—sounds good to me! As an audiophile snob, I like the idea of taking care of my treasured LPs with L’Art du Son Professional Audio Record Cleaning Liquid. The fluid, which is imported by Classic Records, is supplied as a concentrate that makes a gallon of cleaner when mixed with distilled water. I think it can be stretched to beyond one gallon, so let’s at least one gallon. The little bottle of concentrate is $45, so it’s not exactly cheap, but other high-end solutions are as high as $179 per quart! This fluid is as effective as any record cleaner I’ve tried in my VPI 16.5, including my own brew. It also provides a bonus by counteracting the effects of lesser cleaning solutions used in the past and by rejuvenating the dynamics of your LPs.

I tried L’Art on all kinds of LPs, new and old, classic and newly remastered. It worked well every time.  It does not appear critical that one use distilled water, though I did. It states in the instructions to shake well, but don’t get carried away, because the non-alcohol cleaner bubbles up. It applied to the record without fuss and was removed quickly.

The home brew I’ve used for years contains alcohol. I cleaned successive records on one side with my brew and the other with L’Art, and L’Art won every time! How, you ask?? The L’Art makes records sound more dynamic and airy. The alcohol-based fluid sounded clean, but constricted and sort of flat. I panicked, but thankfully I had been remiss in the frequency with which I washed my LPs. I quickly used the L’Art on the sides I had treated with the alcohol blend and they seemed to improve. Time will tell, but I am retiring the home brew for L’Art.

The fluid improved the sound of older LPs. I had not cleaned them recently, and L’Art performed exactly as I’d hoped. At $100 for great used LPs and $33 for new ones, I didn’t want to accidentally ruin any. I recently acquired a 45 rpm Louis Armstrong test pressing from Classic Records, and used it as a test. I cleaned half with L’Art, the other half was not cleaned. The cleaned side was quieter and more dynamic. The mids were improved, with increased definition and more palpable musical textures. Even 200-gram virgin vinyl sounded better with L’Art. An occasional wet wash is the ONLY way to assure that you get optimum LP playback.

I strongly recommend L’Art du Son Record Cleaning Liquid. One bottle should last about three years for the typical audiophile. It’s the Tabasco equivalent for records—it perks them up and lasts until your spouse would prefer to make reservations than dinner.Robert H. Levi
