Vinyl records have a surface static electricity charge created by friction. Two common sources of the friction that creates static build-up are the stylus drag that occurs during record playback as well as simply removing records from their jacket and sleeve. By emitting both positive and negative ions in a controlled fashion from its dual outlets, the ION-001 ionizer unit effectively neutralizes and removes static electricity from the record surface. Our unique "fan less" design allows for silent operation for continuous use while playing records. Additionally, the ION-001 performs charge removal for Compact Discs.
Note: The degree of electrostatic charge may vary depending factors including stylus tip shape, vinyl record material, temperature and humidity etc.
The ION-001 is a very high-power device, equipped with a total of 4 ionizers, 2 each for positive and negative ions.The ION-001 utilizes a specialized power supply controller which suppresses the generation of excess ozone, preventing unwanted oxidation.
The architectural tower design provides placement of the ION-001 next to your turntable for quick installation, allowing easy changing of vinyl records. The tower design is effective with a wide range of turntables featuring overall platter height up to 18 cm or 7". With turntables exceeding this platter height, please use a base/riser to properly position the ION-001.
