    MY TAKE: I’ve been reluctant to recommend any of the stylus cleaners using a gel pad (since none of the cartridge manufacturers I’ve spoken with would endorse them), but the DS Audio represents a shift in my thinking. Coming from a cartridge manufacturer, I’m confident that it is both safe and effective. - Galen Carol


    The DS Audio ST-50 stylus cleaner employs a specially designed urethane gel pad used in industrial clean room settings. Specifically, the material is used in semiconductor production facilities to remove the tiniest dust particles at the micro level.
     

    The urethane gel pad is encased in an elegant machined aluminum, nickel plated, housing. A real leather pad on the bottom prevents damage to the turntable platter.
     

    Simply lower the stylus onto the pad three times. This action safely removes dust and debris from the stylus without placing undue force or pressure on the sensitive generator assembly.
     

    The ST-50 avoids the potential damage caused by some liquid cleaners. Several cartridge manufacturers recommend against using liquid cleaning solutions as some may dissolve the adhesive used to bond the stylus to the cantilever. The ST-50 has no such issues.
     

    Manual dry brushing can remove loose dust, but risks accidental damage if undue force is used. The ST-50 is both safer and more effective at removing smaller deposits compared with dry brushing.
     

    Since the urethane gel pad can be easily cleaned under running water, you'll only need to buy it once, no need to replace brushes or liquids.
