It wasn't even soaked in alcohol. I rinsed the mp in luke warm water, then took the 70% rubbing alcohol and drizzled it over a toothbrush and then proceeded to scrub the mp thoroughly. Then finished up with rinsing it again under luke warm water. Once dried I was VERY upset that my brand new JDX5 looked like I had used sandpaper on it with the dull finish. I know the mp wasn't ruined sound-wise, but cosmetically it was. This whole procedure happened in less than 2 minutes.fusion1, I'm curious how long your Rousseau JDX5 was soaked in alcohol. What percentage isopropyl alcohol was the soaking solution?
What really ticked me off is I used alcohol specifically from reading people recommending it online (the forum from the now defunct site called Jazz Central Station (remember that?)) when my first instinct was hesitant to use any solvent on a HR mp for fear of drying it out or whatever.
