Product Infomation  
The Problem Residual magnetism from the powerful permanent magnets in phono cartridges can spread and magnetize adjacent metal parts, with serious consequences for sound quality. MM (Moving Magnet) cartridges accumulate residual magnetism on the pole pieces. In MC (Moving Coil) cartridges, the iron core around which the coils are wound gradually becomes magnetized. In both cases, sonic performance is seriously degraded. The Solution By generating a pure sinewave sweep of decreasing amplitude into the cartridge, the Gryphon Black Exorcist quickly and effectively dispels harmful magnetic build-up in the iron core or other metal parts of any MM or MC phono cartridge. Periodic demagnetizing focuses the magnet뭩 flux and keeps your cartridge fine-tuned. 밒t뭩 a tonic, a device which restores the magnetic properties of your cartridge to a near-new state.?Hi-Fi News, UK.
