    If it pleases you, but remember that we all like different things and that these choices were just on the spare of the moment before I sold them all I picked out approx. 20 albums that I would normally use when evaluating my Vinyl system after any changes.

    Yes, one of my favourite LPs is the "Hi Fi News Alignment Test Disc".

    Thanks for the list.

    I have one. At the back of my mind, there's this sneaking feeling that if anything could dislodge a shanked diamond tip, this might be it.

    That's a good point Geoff, have to say that I have used them for the last 30 years and that has never happened to me though.

    I have a collection of ADC cartridges, each of which features a shanked tip and I won't try the AT cleaner on them, just in case.

    I have a Goldring vibrating carbon fibre stylus cleaner. I don't use it much as I always clean the stylus with a Cecil Watts velvet 'brush', before and after each LP side.

    But having said that I have a couple of dozen cartridges, and none of them have been damaged by the electronic cleaner.
