Zerostat - Q. Why is my Milty Zerostat clicking and how do I know if it's working?
should try to avoid the clicking noise when operating the device, you should not
worry too much about this if you do encounter clicking. If the Zerostat 3
clicks, this shows that the charge which has built up was too great for the
atmosphere on that particular day and the click signifies that the charge has
found an alternative grounding point inside the handle; the maximum charge that
air can handle before it will jump to another gap is 30kV. External factors
which will affect this are the likes of the atmosphere, and whether the day is
dry or wet - on a dry day, you will most likely find that the Zerostat 3 clicks
a lot more than on a wet day.
With regards to the nozzle which is supplied, this is used to check
functionality of the Zerostat 3, whereby an orange light should be seen to glow
through the slot when ions are passing through it. Another way which you can tell whether the Zerostat has successfully worked
would be after treating a record (whilst held by your hand in mid-air as opposed
to on the platter), to hold it up to your face to see whether you can feel the
small hairs on your face being attracted/affected by a positive
Zerostat - Q. How do I use the Milty Zerostat 3?

Permaclean - Q. How do I use the Milty Permaclean Kit with my records?
Answer: 1. Lay record to be treated on clean, flat, non-slip, non-abrasive surface. 2. Hold can at convenient angle and approximately 6" (15cm) from record. Press the spray head down firmly and spray evenly in a circular motion over the whole surface ...
Zerostat - Q. How can I test whether my second generation Zerostat from the 1980s is functioning?
Answer: It does not require batteries or maintenance as it works from the piezo electric effect and you can check if it works by squeezing the trigger really quickly – if there is resistance, and it clicks, it is generating 30 kV. If the atmosphere ...
Q. What is the difference between static and dynamic compliance?
Answer: As an example, the 1000 series features a rubber damper suspension combined with a tie wire. The rubber damper gives it a quite high static compliance of 24 mm/N in the horizontal plane, and the tie wire gives it a lower static compliance of ...
Q. Which Goldring cartridge is best for making digital recordings of my vinyl?
Answer: The smallest diamond profile which you can afford will be the best option, as it can trace the highest frequency grooves without distortion, in comparison to cheaper (and larger) diamond profiles. In this regard, you would need to look at ...
