No Liquid, No Solvent, No Evaporation
Why is liquid damaging
? (1) Liquid weakens the adhesive between stylus and cantilever.
(2) High-end cartridge with hollow cantilever will actually draw the
liquid into the inside of the cartridge from capillary action. (3) The
evaporation eventually deposits a layer of grime on suspension elasto-meter
and coil, eventually degrading the performance and accelerate the
The cleaning action via VTF is so gentle,
that the preamp can remain on. Just 1 second to clean the stylus and back
When using a brush, the
"dead-corner", i.e., the corner gaps between cantilever and stylus can
never be reached using a back-to-front stroke.
When there is enough dirt trapped
by the content, all you need is a toothpick to stir the content; bring up the clean
portion from below. Let the content settle in about less than a day.
Then it performs like new again.
No evaporation and very stable, as long as no
solvent (like alcohol) ever gets into the content. Rated life is 5 years.
