Maintenance
Stylus and Record Care
In order to prevent premature stylus and record wear,
the stylus and record should be cleaned before
playback.
To clean the stylus, brush it from back to front using a
good quality stylus cleaning brush. Do not clean the
stylus with your finger tip. When using a fluid stylus
cleaner, make sure not to moisten the stylus too much.
To clean your records, wipe thoroughly using a good
quality record cleaner.
Cleaning the Cabinet and Dust Cover
Clean the cabinet and dust cover periodically using a
soft dry cloth. If stains are difficult to remove, use a
cloth moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not
use solvents such as alcohol, benzine or thinner, since
they will damage the finish.
Replacing the Stylus
The life expectancy of the stylus tip is about 400 hours.
To preserve maximum sound quality and avoid
damage to your records, we recommend replacing the
stylus within this time limit.
Additional replacement styli (CN-234) are available
from your Sony dealer.
