    Isn't that a question more properly asked of a lady? :D

    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. :blush:

    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.

    Bry.

    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 :D

    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:clown:

    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
