Static eliminator / demagnetizer

A mast item for analog playback that suppresses frictional charging with the cartridge. The +-ions neutralize static electricity, alleviate the charging on the vinyl, minimize the effects of static electricity, which was a problem with analog playback, trace the records through the groove, and reproduce the original sound. In addition to reducing the "chipping" of static electricity and the adhesion of dust, this system has been well received by many analog users, including "improved signal-to-noise" and overall quietness," "high stereoscopic feeling, and "a new sound was noticed with a record that was used to listening."

Separation from static electricity

While listening, the IME1 is running all the time, emitting + and-ions from the IME1 body toward the record. It is effective in keeping low charging condition even after time has passed, and in avoiding adverse effects such as "Coulomb force," "microgap discharge," and "rotating electric field" caused by triboelectric charging with cartridge. It can also be used to neutralize CDs as well as records..

Demagnetizing function is also attached.

SMinute amounts of magnetism remain even in non-magnetic recording disks, and random magnetization generates a rotating magnetic field and enters as noise. Pressing the operating buttons on the degaussing device causes a decay field to be emitted from the bottom of the IME1 for 12 seconds to erase the magnetism in the record.
