Furutech’s destat III is the third generation model of Furutech’s original destat. It’s aim is to remove dust and static charge from any and all audio and video media in one 15-second treatment
How does it work? You hold Furutech’s destat III over your chosen media and press one button. In 15 seconds, the fan removes dust while a balanced ion flow generator releases a balance of positive and negative ions to eliminate static.
The new destat III delivers about 30% more zapping power that its predecessor, the destat II. It has also been restyled and now runs on AA batteries. A safety circuit prevents any small electric shocks from the balanced ion flow generator.
You can also use the destat III on power cords, speaker cables, interconnects and any and all accessories that include metal components such as record clamps. The Furutech destat III is available now priced at £299.

Rooting around for presents for myself for Christmas 🙂 Your views would be very welcome!
1. Destat III static eliminator
2. Zerostat gun.
A vast difference in price but which one would you go for. Is the Destat III really the bees knees? What is the function of the fan? To blow the dust away 😉
Maybe I should forget about them and just go for the latest Fiio X5 111 as an upgrade for my own Mk. 11 model 🙂
Your thoughts would be very much appreciated……

I’m afraid that I haven’t tested the Destat but I do know how detrimental static is to vinyl so some sort of treatment would be useful. I think that the Zerostat is better value for money for most users unless you use a high-end system and play vinyl all the time.

Sorry Paul only seeing this now! Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately I play vinyl all the time 😱 But, you’re right, the Zerostat, in the long term, is better value. Thanks again…..

Zerostat would be a better value if it worked reliably for a reasonable time. Unfortunately they are now made with very poor quality control an will as likely as not stop functioning after a fairly short time. I have had 2 units that both stopped working within a few months.

Sorry to hear that Harold but thanks for the info. Where you able to talk to the company to find out what was going on?
