Acoustic Revive RD-3 CD Demagnetizer
Announcing the replacement for the popular Furutech RD-2!
For a number of years audiophiles have reported improvements in performance after demagnetizing CDs and DVDs. Improved clarity and resolution of fine detail, cleaner top-end and more developed soundstage are some of the areas of improvement noted after demagnetization. Videophiles offer similar reports of improvement related to picture fidelity, color saturation and detail. Unfortunately, the bulk demagnetizers and head demagnetizers commonly used give unrepeatable results at best, and used incorrectly, can actually magnetize the disc!
Research has shown that demagnetization of CDs resulted in decreased distortion, increased signal to noise ratio and increased overall level. Computer discs (including CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-R and other similar disc media) also benefit from demagnetization, returning reduced block error rates.
The RD-3 is a convenient, reliable and effective demagnetizer that can improve performance of any disc media such as CD, DVD-V, SACD, DVD-A, DVD-R, CD-ROM, CDR, CD-RW and Photo CD.
The unit may also be used to remove residual magnetism from cables and connectors. It is said that magnetism is generated in these parts by the current flowing through them. Even though many of the metals used are non-ferrous, impurities in the materials are enough to allow some residual magnetism.
The Acoustic Revive RD-3 is easily the best product of its kind. I recommend it highly to anyone with a high resolution audio or video system looking to maximize performance. It may not be the equivalent to changing an amplifier, but I would say it is well beyond a subtle tweak.
Customer comment: "Hi, this is my second RD-3 order in very short time. First unit was ordered for friend of mine. After checking what it does on my system there is no way to be without it. It really works!" G.S.
