Please help me reduce static
English

Hi all,

 

In the last couple of weeks I have purchased myself an RP1 and thrilled to have got back in to vinyl but the one thing which bothers me is static, it seems to be worse on brand new vinyl but is also noticeable on pretty much everything I play. I was hoping the guru's on here could provide some advice on the best ways to reduce this. I have on my xmas list a Disco Ant-Static cleaner and have also purchased myself some anti-static inner sleeves so I guess this will reduce the static but was wondering whether there was anything I should look at.

One of these will help you a little me old china. New vinyl is a bit of a nightmare in the static dept these days. 

Change your xmas list from a disco anti stat to a propper rcm and cross your fingers.

I use a felt mat. Homemade for pence. Never siffered. Worth a try? And an antistat cleaning brush/pad earthed to base

RE: Please help me reduce static

I had really annoying static problems with my P3-24, before I upgraded things like the mat, platter and subplatter (the Inspire package for the acrylic platter/mat, Isokinetic for the subplatter).  

Now I have no static problems, so something in that set of upgrades did the trick. Might be worth a bit of experimenting.

We also got a room ioniser (Heaven Fresh HF200) online from Boots. That may also have helped.
