About Keith Monks and what we do
What is "Precision Record Cleaning" ?
A tiny precise suction tip, scanning across the disc a little at a time, removing every last trace of contaminated fluid - especially the mold release oils from the pressing stamper. Noise reduction is of course important, but removal of oils and residues is the biggest benefit of "proper" record cleaning.
Removing oils from outgassed materials and excess mold release agents from the original manufacturing (newer audiophile pressings being a prime example) allows the stylus to track the groove more faithfully, optimising the clarity of sound, and allowing the rest of your wonderful system to really sing.
Precision Record Cleaning restores and preserves your treasured records and also your precious stylus
Safe, proven method and results
Yes, "miracles do take a little longer" ... but longer makes perfect. And with the auto shut off (Redux, microLight, Prodigy Delux) or drop-down suction wand (Prodigy) for unattended cleaning, you really won't notice.
The teaspoon of fluid per record side is vacuumed away and never reused. No build up of oils in the reservoir tank and fluid, no damp pads redepositing contaminated fluids - your 100th record, just as clean as your first.
We urge you, please - check out any other cleaner, and think about how it works ... no other technique or brand can avoid these problems, or rightly claim such consistency and performance.
Precision Record Cleaning cannot be done cheaply by cutting corners, nor by using "non-audio" industrial tech, microwaves and gadgetry ... this is why the Keith Monks remains uniquely, Keith Monks.
