R.I.P. "On May 26th, 1999, Waldo Semon, inventor of vinyl, passed away in
Hudson, Ohio at the mellow old age of 100; Dr. Semon invented our fave
synthetic back in 1926 at B.F.Goodrich while trying to devise something else:
an adhesive that would make rubber and metal stick together; Semon held
116 patents, & in 1995 was inducted into the U.S. National Inventors Hall Of
Fame; he also invented & held a patent on bubble gum." —MF, Stereophile

"...Inner detail was outstanding...
It has the sweetest, warmest, lushest

It's creamy-rich with very low apparent
distortion and the burnished glow you
expect from single-ended triode amps.
...its sonic performance is intoxicating,
almost magical...a first-class tonearm."
Absolute Sound's editor, Harry Pearson:
"5-stars...the least character, the least
coloration & the lowest distortion at both
freq extremes of any in our experience."

ZEROSTAT anti-static "gun",
removes static from LPs, CDs,

Sumer Review from B.A.S., 1974:
"I'd like to share my experience with a product,
Zerostat from Discwasher, that has done everything
I hoped it would do. The last place I lived apparently
was the South Carolina generating point for static
& made records almost impossible to play enjoyably.
Washing didn't work, Preeners & Dust Bugs didn't work,
& neither did swearing or abstinence. Zerostat did though,
to perfection! It was literally unbelievable, & fully justified
its price, at least to me. If you've got problems with static,
this thing ought to do the trick." —B.A.S. 1974.
