DS Audio, known for their optical cartridges, first introduced the ST-50 Stylus cleaner at CES 2018.

The cleaning gel pad that it uses is made from Urethane Resin which was developed for Clean Room micro dust cleaning applications.

The gel is washable and re-usable. Rather than applying force to the stylus, it cleans at the pre-set needle pressure of your tonearm, just drop the stylus into the gel.

The casing is cut from an Aluminium block which is highly polished and nickel plated.  On the back is a leather cushion. It weighs 28g and retails for around $80 USD and £75.
