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

To my knowledge, unless proven otherwise, nobody has ever shown that inks used on CD labels to contain ferrous elements or the aluminum or gold or alloy metal layer in CDs to contain any ferrous elements. Furutech is simply trying to come up with some "reasonable explanation" why their expensive demagnetizer works. It makes no difference to me who they are, manufacturer, whatever. They're not even the first manufacturer of demag devices so please give me a break. Now, unless you can provide one shred of evidence that either the ink is magnetizable or the metal layer is magnetizable I fear we are at an impass. See if you can lift the CD with a powerful magnet. Bet you can't.
