The Latest News From Osage Audio Products
Albert Lukaschek has been busy. The result is the new Benz Micro Zebra-L phono cartridge. Using the zebra wood body previously found only on the Ruby Z, as well as a line-contact stylus and their patented iron cross coil, the Zebra-L is a landmark in phono cartridge evolution and performance-to-price ratio. Contact us to learn more.
Along with the updated Standard and Super models, the exciting new GEM Dandy Signature turntable has arrived. And we now offer a selection of high quality tonearms packaged with the GEM Dandy models. Please visit our GEM Dandy web page for all the details.
Designed, built, adjusted, and turned by Japanese craftsmen using time honored techniques, Sorane tonearms are among a select few on the market today that offer versatility, high performance, and exceptional value. And they are perfect for pairing with GEM Dandy turntables. Find more information on our Sorane web page.

We have added two new products to the Audio Intelligent Vinyl Solutions lineup, both of which address longstanding issues related to vinyl playback housekeeping.
Ultra-Low Foaming Formula No. 27 is specifically for use in fluid-dispensing vacuum record cleaning machine. A number of brands such as Clearaudio, Hannl/Nessie, Nitty Gritty, VPI, and Keith Monks offer vacuum record cleaning machines that dispense the cleaning fluid automatically. The dispensing process can cause fluids to foam, leading to the air bubbles interfering with the dispensing process, and sometimes even the vacuuming process. Our new product eliminates this issue with an all enzyme formula that contains no alcohol. If you use a fluid dispensing machine you should give Ultra-Low Foaming Formula No. 27 a try.
Many phono cartridge manufacturers recommend against using liquid stylus cleaners. The primary reason for this is that liquid stylus cleaning formulas commonly contain alcohol or other substances that can attack the adhesive bond that holds the stylus onto the cantilever.
So why not use a liquid formula that doesn’t contain anything that would weaken the adhesive bond, and that is also enzymatic in composition? After all, what ends up on the stylus is generally what is on the record, and we clean that with enzymes.
That product is Audio Intelligent Vinyl Solutions Enzymatic Stylus Cleaning Formula. It is supplied in a two ounce dropper bottle that will clean your stylus up to 1000 times, and with a brush with tightly-packed, non-varnished bristles. And the brush is also good for dry cleaning. It is offered separately and can be found on our Listener Select page.
We invite you to give these products a try. Call us for more information and visit our AIVS Product Information web page.

Osage Audio Products has been awarded a dealership for the internationally acclaimed Mårten Design loudspeaker line, a line offered to only a very few carefully selected dealers.
Known in the press primarily for massive and expensive speakers, Mårten also produces models that, while not inexpensive, are priced within reach. The entire line features models that offer a combination of clarity, smoothness, and precise presentation that is rarely heard, and that is very much like the real thing rather than a recording.
It should be noted as well that Mårten loudspeakers mate perfectly with E.A.R. amplification, and can be attested to by the many ‘best of show’ mentions that that combination has received over the years at hi-fi shows in the United States and abroad.
