The Sweep-IT E is a record cleaning arm from Pro-Ject Audio Systems, cleans as you play. Cleaning a record collection can be tiresome, time-consuming or just difficult to keep up with; but it’s an essential task if you want to ensure the best possible sound quality and guarantee a long stylus life.

A key part of good maintenance is keeping dust out of your grooves, as too much debris in a record groove can easily stick to the pick-up stylus and cause unwanted artefacts in the sound.

As opposed to almost every other cleaning solution, which requires you to clean your records while they’re not playing; Sweep-IT E cleans in real time, just before the groove reaches the cartridge. Position Sweep-IT E on your turntable and make sure that the brush is placed in front of the needle when the record starts. Sweep-IT E is made from aluminium with a heavyweight base that sits directly on your turntable, the uni-pivot arm navigates your records just like a tonearm, with minimal resistance. The soft hair-brush has been purpose-chosen to ensure records remain unharmed and the playback speed remains stable. For times when you don’t need Sweep-IT E, it has a dedicated arm rest for storage. Price is £55.
