    Default Dust. What To Do About It?

    It is the second half of the second decade of the 21st century - we should be living in domes on the Moon but we still don't seem to have an answer to this basic problem except for tedious manual labour, eating into what would otherwise be that most valuable commodity of all: Free Time.

    Years ago I used to have an ioniser. Like a little pyramid thing, you sat it on a sheet of bacofoil and it attracted all the airborne dust to it. There was a more expensive one that didn't need the bacofoil and took the dust inside. I've no idea what happened to it, lost it on a house move probabaly, but did seem to work to an extent.

    Is there not some modern equivalent? Other than getting a Stepford Wife of course? (Too much maintenance for me). That was decades ago I had that gadget, have they come on any? What do you do to combat dust without having to raise a finger?

    No, ionisers are a real thing. They freshen the air too.

    I've got an RCM, my records are dust and dirt free (to an extent anyway).

    But there is dust everywhere, on the stairs, the kit, the shelves, the rack. I'm not willing to accept that in 2017 there is no automatic method or device that can be employed to prevent this.

    Agreed, how do you stop the DUST !!!!! RCM's are great..... until you get the record on the Turntable.... THEN?.... where does that dust come from???????

    It's a bit like magic waiting for you to play your favorite record. without pops and clicks.
