The ION-001 is a very high-power device, equipped with a total of 4 ionizers, 2 each for positive and negative ions. The ION-001 utilizes a specialized power supply controller which suppresses the generation of excess ozone, preventing unwanted oxidation. Vinyl records have a surface static electricity charge created by friction. Two common sources of that friction is stylus drag as well as simply removing records from their jacket and sleeve. The ION-001 effectively neutralizes and removes static electricity and our unique “fan less” design allows for silent operation. Simply position the ION-001 next to your turntable and switch on when playing an LP.
