Picture and Sound Enhancer
WALKER AUDIO ULTRA VIVID
PICTURE AND SOUND ENHANCER FOR VIDEO AND AUDIO DISCS
With High Tech Wiper
Note: Ultra Vivid is safe for regular SACDs. It is safe on all gold SACDs except those that have a gold external tint.
Ultra Vivid contains no abrasives. It will not remove scratches. However, the optical enhancers will make the scratch transparent so the laser can read the
information accurately. To remove a scratch, an abrasive “sands” down the disc to the depth of the scratch leaving lots of small scratches. While this may eliminate skipping, the error correction system is engaged more and the picture and sound will be degraded. Do not use black or green marking pens on the disc. It will degrade the sound. If you have already applied it, remove the marking with Ultra Vivid before putting on a final coat.
HOW TO APPLY
Shake the bottle vigorously before use. Put three to four drops on a supplied foam pad and apply to the disc using light to moderate pressure. Next apply one or two drops to the applicator pad and using moderate pressure, apply Ultra Vivid to the outside edge of the disc. Then immediately, before the solution dries, use the high tech wiper to buff the disc using moderate pressure. Turn the wiper to get a clean surface and continue to buff until the disc is dry and a high shine appears. For best results, buff from center hole to outside edge. Then, buff the outside edge. We have found that treating the playing surface twice gets the best results. Try it for yourself. You will be amazed. When burning a CD or DVD, treat the disc first for best results.
NOTE: Always close the bottle spout immediately after using. Leaving it open will allow the fluids needed for proper remixing to evaporate over time. Best if used within twelve months of opening.
USING THE FOAM PADS AND HIGH TECH WIPER
Use a clean portion of the foam pad each time. You may use the reverse side. When the pad is used up on both sides, it may be cleaned by washing it with dishwashing liquid. Squeeze out the excess water and let dry. Use a fresh part of the wiper each time. Shake out the wiper after each use to dislodge residue. When the wiper is used up, hand wash it with a mild dishwashing liquid and let dry. You may do this multiple times. The life of the wiper will vary by the number of discs you treat. If the wiper becomes unusable, you can use a clean 100% cotton cloth or you can use Kleenex Viva paper towels. Do not use any other brands of paper towel, as they will scratch. You may also purchase a replacement high tech wiper from us.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH DVDS AND CDS
On DVDs, Ultra Vivid will improve both picture and sound. Look for a cleaner, sharper image. Colors will be more alive without harshness or brightness. Look for a sense of depth to the picture. Distances between foreground and background objects become more realistic. Also, listen for sound effects to be more distinct and focused. The audio will have dimensionality and sounds will appear to move across the soundstage. With Ultra Vivid, you will hear more of the music that is on a CD. The sound will be clearer and more focused. Bass will be deeper and fuller, yet more precise and distinct. The upper ranges will be extended and less harsh. You will hear parts of the music you never heard before.
For the absolute best in picture and sound, we recommend treat your discs with our Talisman magnetic conditioner in along with Ultra Vivid. The effect of the two used together is much greater than using them separately. Use the Talisman on all CDs, SACDs, DVDs and LPs.
