    FS: L'Art du Son CD Cleaning Fluid

    RRP £50, and that's what I paid for it.

    I heard this stuff in a convincing demo at a Show and then bought some online. Yup, it works at home too - but I should have known myself better ... I really cannot be bothered to clean every bloody CD that I play. OK, so I'm a lazy git.

    Barely any used at all - at least 99% left.

    Yours for £30 UK delivered.

    Hi Jerry,
    For the unitiated like me, how does it work? - not the chemistry bit but what difference to the sound output does it make, or does it just make them look nice and shiny ?
    Cheers,
    DaveK.

    My System:
    Power: Belkin PF40, Custom.hifi.cables Hydra and DC PSUs.
    Sources: Self built HTPC with Xonar ST sound card, NAD T585 multi disc player, Sony BDP-S350, Squeezebox Touch, Techncs SL1210 (mod'd) + Nagaoka MP30, Thomson Sky HD box.
    Amps etc.: 2 x Mini-T amps, MF-X10D Valve buffer clone, StanDAC 7520/Caiman (mod'd).
    Speakers: Mission 774s with added super tweeters
    Cables: best I can afford and likely to change except Homar's RF attenuated co-ax's and Mark Grant USB and HDMI cables. I also like silver i/cs and speaker cable.

    Yep, nice & shiny, Dave. But it does clean up the sound (a little) as well. You can quite easily fool yourself into thinking that the sound is a tad better defined and musically relaxed.

    I can see the point of the vinyl version, where there is actual contact twixt stylus/groove therefore a solution that left no residue would be of value but what advantage does this stuff have over say Fairy liquid?

    "in every case the l’Art du Son gave the best results in terms of transparency, dynamic agility, and a sense of organic smoothness and lack of fatigue more often associated with analog disc playback. "

    Cripes - I should be asking twice the price!
