  • The ELP declicker is compatible with both the ELP Laser Turntable and conventional turntables. We've listed some of the other great features of this new product below.

  • Real-time noise reduction of clicks and crackle (impulse noise), but not hiss (broadband noise).

  • No other hardware is required. Not even a computer.

  • Click/crackle sensitivity is continuously variable using a single rotary control. When the sensitivity is set to "minimum" there will be minimum noise reduction and negligible effect on the signal.

  • Bypass allows the user to leave the ELP declicker in the signal path with no noise reduction.
    • Bypass is easily switched on and off with a front-panel control.
    • Bypass operates in two modes:
      • Analog Mode: Analog output is connected directly to the analog input with no AD-DA conversion. There will be an audible "Glitch" when switching Bypass on or off in this mode.
      • Glitch-Free mode: The bypass is implemented by switching off the de-click process. The signal continues to pass through analog-digital-analog, but no processing is performed. There is no glitch when switching bypass on or off in this mode.
  • Analog RCA stereo inputs connect directly to phono preamplifier or ELP ELT-10 outputs

  • Analog RCA stereo outputs connect directly to line-level preamp or integrated amplifier

  • Digital S/PDIF coax or optical (TOSLINK) outputs connect directly to computer or DAT

  • Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz or 88.2 kHz, user selectable

  • Word length: 24-bit

  • Size: Approx. 220 x 44 x 150 mm (8.7 x 1.7 x 5.9 inches)

  • List Price: US$3,000 (initial deliveries will commence in December, 2005)

    Note #1: The ELP declicker is optimized for reducing the noise on modern 33 and 45 RPM records, but not for 78 RPM records. It will still work well with 78 RPM records, but it will not remove the clicks and crackle noise as aggressively. This design choice was made to minimize or eliminate any distortion to the original signal.

    Note #2: The declicker will remove clicks and pops, but will not remove hiss noise.

    "In my opinion, the ELP Declicker is extremely well built and compact. The Declicker can virtually remove all ticks and pops on the record on a real-time basis without altering or degrading the sound fidelity. Obviously, if the record is damaged, the Declicker will not be able to 'repair' the damaged LP. For anyone who is seriously interested in analog LP sound reproduction and restoration, the Declicker is a must-have component." B. Lee, CFO, Washington State, USA
