    Got any good dust or dirt pictures on your audio gear? :)

    Just after I finish swiffering all my gear, within 1 minute it's like a winter's dusting of snow.

    "swiffered" articles seem to actually attract dust. Use Guardsman dusting cloths or a treatment of Endust on a microfiber towel.

    Interesting! The more you use one the more you need to buy refills. Good business model.

    No "link", just my personal observations from using the product

    Genuinely more universal than the "pictures of cats on audio gear" thread.

    That's cool.

    I'll switch things up - would be nice to reduce the amount of 'fallout' I get in the house.

    I'd take a few shots but I have to wait until my cat gets off of the gear.

    Hey! :D Luckily she stays off of the gear (usually), as for the rest of the place, you have a point ;)

    Dust. Anybody ? No ? Dust. It's actually very low in fat and makes an ideal addition to any audiophile diet. Clip from Little Britains' 'Fat Fighters'

    A extremely dusty, sticky, smelling like an ash tray Pioneer pl-730 that I bought off a guy. It had been sitting in his listening room for probably 15 years untouched.

    But, since it has photography in it, it really should be moved to the Cameras and Photography forum. :rflmao:

    I finally instructed my wife not to dust my equipment. She either used a swifter, or Windex on the TT dustcover (clouds them), or knocked cables loose...

    I have to admit I don't dust mine as much as I should. At least most of the components are behind a glass door in a cabinet.
