We just received a review from Danon Han Hong Den, a Malaysian audio hi-end influential reviewer. Danon transcendentally noticed CHISTO's hidden aim : not only clean but not to harm a record.Read more...
Very nice review in Chezh hifi resource:
Beauty products Chisto not miraculous - they are doing what they should, therefore clean your plate from the most deprived to the most completely new, consistently, we were able to observe a quieter, less crackling and therefore more enjoyable reproduction and, like the cosmetics classic - no need to have it and use it, but if you want the best feeling you want to keep more healthy if their portable and simply want everything to be as it should be, try Easy Groove . First Spray & Wipe for manual cleaning and then quietly one of the concentrates, because all work well either when hand washing or using a mechanical washing machine.

My conclusion is that this product does seem to have an effect on the way the disc sounds. I've heard all the arguments that these products are snake oil, and that the digital data retrieval process isn't affected by products like this -- and to the degree I understand those arguments, they make sense to me. Still, I was curious enough to spend some money on this to try it out, and I think it works. My wife, who isn't the least bit interested in justifying my purchase, backs it up (I chalk up her preference for the untreated discs to personal taste). I don't think it makes my CDs sound like vinyl, but I do think it makes them sound MORE like vinyl.
It was as if each CD had been transformed into an expensive Re-mastered Gold Edition. Or on the hardware side, as if the Calyx DAC I have in for review was magically reincarnated as a Berkley Alpha DAC. That's a difference of $3200, making the return on investment HUGE!
"I have tried many others incl Auric Illuminator, Quicksilver and black marker pen and when I was in the US, I tried Nespa, CD lathe. At this stage, I feel yours is one of the better ones, improvement yes. Very nice. Certainly, never come across a CD treatment that effects a huge improvement but yours is certainly one of the best ones I've tried
...Analoguer be very effective in its primary task: just as the manufacturer predicted, even brand new cd's left grey mark (dirt) on the cloth. Subjectively the two lotions worked surprisingly well together, meaning that I generally liked the sound after the treatment more than before it.
...The Black Analoguer in particular appeared to be an effective poison for digital bitches.

"As I said, something changed and changed for good without placebo effect.
...While all the sublime changes in sound can be based on different and often altered states of mind, I must say I felt that something did happen to the way I perceived the music from my CD's with Chisto doing their magic. With DVD's and Blu-ray,' it is often easy to see visual improvements. Withing audio and music those distinctions are sharper and harder to experience. I can stand behind all the technological benefits of both Analoguer and the Black Analoguer without a doubt, but for audible changes, you'll simply have to trust my "sharp" ears or try it for yourself.

...I was surprised therefore when a quick spray with the Analoguer resuscitated a copy of Norah Jones' first album that I had thought was beyond redemption.
... I found that on virtually all my CDs the spray made a difference. It seemed to enhance the detail in the soundstage, bringing out a little more depth in reverberation, a little more clarity in the separation of instruments making the overall presentation a little smoother.
...The treatment seemed to tighten the bass and add a little more clarity to the treble, making a triangle part more audible and distinct. Then a Ry Cooder album - where the track "Down in Hollywood" seemed to gain an extra bit of funkiness as it became easier to separate out the individual instruments from a fairly chunky mix. The overall feeling of ambience in recordings seemed to be clearer.
