Keith Monks Audio 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.

Zero Recontamination

  • 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.
