RE: So what's the deal with CD demagnetizers?

again, assuming 'facts' not in evidence.

One of the MAIN reasons I gave up vinyl in about '84 was all those ANNOYING pops and ticks. In extremely DRY climates, I suspect it is even possible for the electrostatic charge to effect Tracking Force.

In the interest of COMPLETENESS:
(I would use the Zero Stat to remove dust / reduce dust buildup) IF i ever had such a problem.

I experimented BRIEFLY with pop / tick removal. Maybe 45 seconds. I JUST 3 weeks ago gave away a good DBX NX-40 compressor / expander which found use on a R-2-R but I NEVER succeeded in finding a DBX encoded disc.

CD is not very susceptible to such dust. DVD moreso, due to the smaller 'pitch' of the geometry and BR perhaps even MORESO. That being said, I've NEVER in 30+ years of CD ownership EVER had an issue I could ascribe to dust or such buildup. My ORIGINAL 3 discs including a wonderful Eric Clapton Blues Breakers has NEVER had a single issue. The garage sound of that that disc is wonderfully preserved and reproduced.
Too much is never enough
