The Audio Origami Spyglass is the perfect tool for checking your stylis without removing the cartridge from the arm.
Introduction. Although simple in concept the playing of vinyl records can be greatly enhanced if proper care is taken of both the record and the equipment.
Here we shall deal with stylus care. We all know that dust is the enemy of high fidelity reproduction when it comes to playing records and we all have our own way of cleaning our stylii, but how can you make sure your stylus is clean?
This is where the AO Magnifier comes into its own, the high magnification allows you to inspect the diamond very closely and the in-built LED illuminates the stylus to avoid eye strain and to ensure you miss nothing.
How To Open The Magnifier. The Magnifier is opened by gently gripping the 2 triangles at one end of the Magnifier and gently pulling away from the main body.
The LED illuminates automatically when the lens is fully extracted and ready for use. The LED also automatically turns off when you close the Magnifier. To close the magnifier, gently push the 2 halves towards each other so the lens slides into the body. There will be a slight click when the Magnifier is closed.
What Can I Expect To See? When the Magnifier his held close to the cleaned stylus you will be able clearly see the condition of your stylus and decide if you have done a good job or need to clean it again.
