The passive filter is very prone to noises due to parasitic capacitances.

When I use perfboard, i get the best results by removing the unused copper islands between the riaa filter components.

I also notice that the board must be totally free of flux in that area otherwise some noise appears.

PS: I read about submerging the built board in isopropil alcool would get rid of the flux completely but I did not try it because I am afraid the alcool might affect the components.

I use an old toothbrush to remove flux. Isopropil alcool is oK, but sometime not enough. C2HCl3 (trichloroethylene) or similar is more aggressive and components safe. It might remove printing on caps sometime.

I will search for C2HCl3 (trichloroethylene).

I use a stiff paint brush but sometimes the flux passes to the component side and sticks (particularly under the caps)... Can I submerge a board on C2HCl3 (trichloroethylene) or should I be afraid that it would soak some components ?

I think EU laws prohibits trichloroethylene, but some stain remover are also good. Ask your wife/mother
I only used old toothbrush to clean solder side, never submerged pcbs, thus no idea, but useless IMO.

Ricardo, I am sure that's distributed in Portugal too, because the instructions are wroted in Portuguese & Spanish (so Iberian product).
