A not so full English . . . ?
I have seen the thread on record cleaners, still seems to be 'frying bacon'? I have just taken delivery of a 'Disco-antistat', not cleaned any records yet, have a couple of other projects in progress . . . as well as recently my records have reduced considerably 'frying the bacon', its still there a bit but reduced. The 'static' as one lifted a record off the platter was some times also very high, now non existant.
I ask the question why? . . . my cleaning ragime when I place a record on the TT has not changed. However a couple of other things have, I have changed the tone arm, the new one has ceramic bearings blocking electrical paths and one presumes static paths? I have also isolated the platter from the main structure with rubber stand offs, I now use a tone arm earth link to the amp, did not need it with the previous arm.
Is the above significant to reduced snap, crackle and pop?
