Free from dust.
Isn't that a question more properly asked of a lady?
Vacuum cleaner with a long metal hose, which is connected to the earth pin on the plug was the answer a dealer once gave me, which seems a little over cautious, but if you wipe out £100,000 of stock with static discharges I guess you would regret not doing that.
I was thinking more along the lines of a feather duster or todays equivalent ?
Bit on the expensive side, there are special electrical equipment wipes available, can't remember the cost but not something you'd want to use on a daily basis.
Is your AV rack composed of metal & glass?
Glass racks are a pig for dust gathering (combined with electronics)..
A simple, but decent solution is what my beloved used to get for me.
Pledge Dust & Go cloths.
Leave a nice smell & are pretty good @ picking up the dust.
I've just built my own AV rack from timber & MDF and layered the shelves with some carpet.
Has reduced the dust content hugely.
I've got a flat duster that came from the Betterware catalogue.
It has a flat piece of plastic down the middle that keeps the material from rucking up and lets you push it under the amp etc.
When dirty remove the plastic and throw in the washing machine, simple
just cleaned mine after a major cable tidying operation, dry soft duster no polish on glass shelves
i have a apollo rack, and the shelves are a black mdf type wood , and the dust i get is unreal, i useally have to do it every week!!!
i have a apollo mezzo soprano and i too have to dust once a week! i use window wipes as they are quick and easy and do a good job without the need of elbow grease, it really hurts rubbing your elbows all over the glass
I think it's just that you can't see the dust!!!............
There is "supposedly" a device, kinda like an extractor fan, designed for places suseptable to dust which gets rid of it and prevents it from building up.
How true this is and how much they cost I have no idea
micro fibre cleaning clothes are excellent used dry, or sightly damp.
No polish, and can stick them in wash machine.
They are excellent for TV screens, used damp (no windowlene).
Vieda ( sp?) make at Sainsbury
Well the mrs has just bought me a lambswool duster.
Bry, I bet your well tickled with that.
Works a treat
Did your BM6A's arrive 2day mate?
Yup, but not the Van Damn cables lol so can't set them up yet
Also waiting on Atacama SE6 stands which should arrive tomorrow.
'Gutted' springs to mind!
i get the woman of the house to clean it....
Isn't there a seperate section for porn talk
Am today, Stands arrived so put them together and filled with sand, then put them in place and leveled with the built in spirit level.
Unpacked first speaker and positioned on stand, unpacked second speaker and oh no its damaged unpack third and thats ok.
So one has to go back but took a piccy before I box it back up
