HOW IT WORKS
THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE SOUND
Every good product starts with a problem. For us it was the crackles and popping sounds in our beloved vinyl.
While many people believe that the pops and crackles are because their vinyl records are
“scratched” beyond repair, the real problem is most likely to be dust and mould that is ground into the vinyl grooves.
You can tell the difference between scratches and dusty waxy build-up by listening closely. If you hear pops and crackles all the way round, it is more than likely caused by build-up in the microscopic ridges located within the grooves of the record.
This build-up is caused by the friction of the stylus passing over the tiny ridges and generating just enough heat to make the tiny ridges sticky. The stylus then picks up loose material as it travels through the grooves and deposits them on the sticky ridges where they stay.
