    I just received an SACD hybrid disc (The Coronation of King George II) and it has a little sticker on the back that says "Do not use liquid cleaning and/or anti-static solutions on this disc." The other hybrid discs I received don't say this. Does anyone know if this is something that should be followed for all SACD and/or hybrid discs or just this one (for whatever reason)? How then should one clean fingerprints etc. off of such a disc (aside from not putting them there in the first place)?

    Marvin,

    I once used a Disk Doctor, that spinning cleaning device, on a SACD and it worked but the smeared surface seemed to indicate that it was not a proper thing to do.

    I now just use photographic cleaning cloths and wipe from the inside circumference out in straight lines.

    I think any cleaning solutions can adversely affect the disc chemicals.
