IME1

IME1

A new accessory that focuses on cartridge friction and eliminates static electricity while playing records. Minimizes the effects of electrostatic charges and static electricity on records to make analog records more vivid.

Static Eliminator IME1

Static electricity is caused by cartridge friction.

The friction of cartridges can cause a record to be charged up to several hundred volts over time. And the "Coulomb force", "micro-gap discharge" and "rotating electric field" can cause noise. The IME1 is an all-new accessory that eliminates static electricity while a record is being played, keeping the charge low over time.

Neutralizes frictional charging with ions

During playback, positive and negative ions are emitted from the top of the record to suppress electrostatic charges. So the original sound can be played back without the negative effects of static electricity.


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 felt the effects of the CD.
