The Furutech deMag completely demagnetizes LPs and optical disc media such as CD, CD-R, DVD, MD, Game CD, Photo CD, SACD, and DVD Audio. Plus it’s an indispensable accessory for keeping interconnect cables, connectors and power cords demagnetized to prevent magnetic signal distortion.
Disc Magnetization Is No Mystery
The silk-screened label on an optical disc contains chemical compounds such as iron, nickel, and cobalt. These materials are all strongly magnetic and easily remagnetized. The reflective information-bearing surface of optical media contains 99% aluminum, but 1% of these same highly magnetic materials! Even aluminum is considered a weak magnetic conductor.
Amazingly, optical discs actually magnetize as they play! A magnetic field is actually induced as they spin. This same elemental process takes place with CD, CD-R, DVD, and MD. Particular attention is due MD as it’s the most prone to magnetization effects such as problems reading discs.
Other so-called demagnetizers on the market including specialist products, head erasers, bulk erasers, etc. don’t even completely demagnetize your discs. Rather, some of them actually induce magnetism! Take spinning demagnetizers, for example. After the disc stops, a section of the CD is left exposed to the fixed magnet below. Because Furutech’s deMag Ring Magnet Technology ramps the power up then down again, all residual magnetism is completely removed.
Demagnetization Isn’t Just For Optical Media Anymore!
The deMag works for disc media as well as cables, connectors, and power cords! (See below.) No part of the playback chain should be disturbed by resolution-sapping magnetic interference.
Furutech’s deMag is the answer. It’s the only way to experience top system performance by demagnetizing optical media, power cords, interconnects of all kinds, and their connectors! You should know that demagnetization was a mainstream technique routinely performed by disc manufacturers all over the world. Because of tight, ultra-competitive pricing, most manufacturers skip this important step these days. Top performance can only be achieved by demagnetizing all discs before recording!
