Sweep It S2 // Black
Record brooms have been around since the early 1970s. Some of them do a good job, others not so much. In many cases, the brush rushes towards the middle of the record out of sync with the tonearm. This phenomenon is known as skating, and recent developments by Pro-Ject aim to tackle this problem.
Here, the highly efficient neodymium magnet comes into play, used to stabilize the record broom of Sweep it S2. Extensive theoretical and empirical research was involved in the development of this product. The magnetic attraction between the neodymium magnet (housed in the top part of the cylinder) and the core/counterweight stabilizes the record brush. Moreover, the distance between the neodymium magnet and the core/counterweight is carefully selected to ensure a specific magnetic stabilization force. As the aluminum of the brush arm is paramagnetic, it acts like an additional space between the neodymium magnet and core/counterweight.
Sweep it S2 is height adjustable within a range of about 1cm. The position can be locked with the set screw on the base. With this mechanism, it is possible to adjust the height record broom in order to align it horizontally with the platter. Correct horizontal alignment ensures the correct tracking force of about 6g.
The record broom can be placed in one of two left side corners of the turntable. The placement is dependent in part on the shape of your turntable. At the optimal position the brush should reach the spindle (i.e. the center of the platter). Deviations (relative to the spindle) between 1.5 to 2 cm are well compensated for by design of Sweep it S2. Higher deviations can cause more drastic skating effects.
