While record sleeves and help to maintain a clean record, over time, grime can build up. Many record cleaners at this price point require record cleaning solution to keep dust particles from interfering with your analog listening experience. For those who would prefer to avoid using a record cleaning machine, handling cleaning fluid, or managing a record cleaning kit with each listen, this aluminum and natural is a powerful solution, especially when compared to cheaper velvet brushes and microfiber cloths.
A highly efficient neodymium magnet keeps the vinyl brush of the record broom in place. These magnets are used to stabilize the vinyl record cleaner brush of the Sweep it S2. Sweep it S2 is constructed in collaboration with Klaus Mick and uses his patented technology to stabilize your vinyl record cleaning. Extensive theoretical and empirical research has been put into the development of this product.
Sweep it S2 is height adjustable within a range of about 1cm. The position can be locked with the set screw on the base. With this mechanism, it is possible to adjust the height of the arm of the record broom in order to align it horizontally with the platter. A correct horizontal alignment ensures the correct tracking force of about 6g.
The record broom uses natural hair instead of carbon fiber bristles and conductive static electricity. It can be placed in one of two left-hand side corners of the turntable. The placement is depending on the type and shape of your turntable. At the optimal position, the brush should align with the spindle (i.e. the center of the platter). Deviations (relative to the spindle) between 1,5 to 2 cm are well compensated by the design of the Sweep It S2. Higher deviations can cause more drastic skating effects.
