Works wonderful the best device for static out there I'm using it and love it.
Thats good to know,they are quiet expensive here in the UK,never seen a used one for sale.
I 2nd ebm's enthusiastic endorsement. A lot more $ than the Zerostat, but imo worth the difference in price.
Agree with bdp24. I have v2 which far surpasses my Zerostat. It's worth the $.
What's the diff between II and III?
3  has a handle and its more powerful and much easier to use.
Thanks I just found 30% stronger and alkaline vs recharge batteries.
I’ve been using one for about six months. It makes a tremendous difference. Also, the effect seems to be somewhat cumulative. The first time I use the Furutech on a record it takes care of a lot of the static related pops and noise. The 2nd use removes a little more, and so on. This cumulative effect doesn’t go on forever, obviously, and the effect varies from record to record, but it is significant. 
Highly recommended. 
How does it work with cd discs if you have tried?
HiFi heaven has the Destat II for $190 delivered.
It's actually designed more for CD's but only lacks a handle.
It works fine. More air there.
And 46% less $ for 23% less power*time works for me.

Just received a Destat III, am using it exclusively on CDs.  You would not think a CD could hold much of a static charge, and so what if it did? While a record with a charge may attract and hold dust in its grooves, a CD seems to clean off easily with a lens brush and a puff of air---no dust there.  Apparently, there's much more to static charge than dust--the Destat also works on cables, tonearms, tubes--anything you can get it close to.  Here's part of a review by "The Audiophile Man": 

I’m talking tiny levels here but tiny levels are enough to make an audible difference. Dulling it a bit. You’ll find that lots of tiny things are affected like bits of reverb here, removal of air and space there, constriction of the mids here, squashing of the bass there. Subtle stuff that you might easily dismiss on an individual basis. Trouble is, you add those hundreds – actually thousands – of little sonic nudges and squeezes and the overall effect of noise on your music is pretty nasty. Noise sucks the soul out of music, in fact. You only really hear the effects when, oddly enough, they’re not there. Until then, your brain probably will wonder what all the fuss is about. Get rid of the stuff, though, and then you’ll understand. 

You can most obviously physically see resident static as it attracts dust to your vinyl but static is all over the place. Getting rid of static from your hi-fi can prevent the build up of dust on the surface of your vinyl but it also promises to improve sound quality.


What I am hearing is a smoother, more open sound. Along with that comes a bit more resolution, of course.  I really like this thing. 




Thanks for the replies,all very encouraging just trying to get one at the right price,used ex dem.
