Minimizes the effects of electrostatic charges and static electricity on vinyl record to make analog more vivid.

Static Eliminator IME1


Static electricity is caused by cartridge friction.

A vinyl record is charged up to several hundred volts over time by friction with the cartridge. Coulomb force, micro-gap discharge, and rotating electric field then cause noise. The IME1 irradiates + and - ions from the top of the record during playback, keeping the electrostatic charge low over time. It eliminates electrostatic noise and reproduces records clearly and vividly in the mid-to-high range.

Demagnetizing function

Even a non-magnetic vinyl record still has a faint magnetism, it becomes noise in the form of a rotating magnetic field. When you press the demagnetization button, a damped magnetic field is emitted to erase the magnetism of the record.

User Review

・Scratch noise and static discharge noise are reduced.

・Easy to change records.

・The overall sound was quieter and the S/N ratio improved.

・I noticed a new sound even on familiar records.

・The resolution is higher. Richer mid-high range.

・I also felt the effect of the CD.
