Magic Eraser used for vinyl cleaning?
IIRC the ME is used to clean the stylus and not the vinyl. YMMVCheers 
Phono preamp or cartridge - which to upgrae first

Ebn and MapmanGentlemen, its the opposite of what you infer. The Atlas mounted on a Garrard 401 with a 12' Ortofon arm is clearly superior to the TW rig with the Talea.NJoyPradeep
