Kontak Audio Cleaning Fluid

  • Complete with 4 long contact cleaning brushes.
  • 32ml (1.1 fluid oz bottle supplied)

"The proof is in the listening. We cleaned my CD player leads and sockets, then the speaker plugs and terminals. On playback between each step, it was audibly more transparent. I heard greater inner detail, as if I'd just upgraded to another price level."

"For the cost of a couple of CD's here's an improvement akin to spending a few grand."

            -Hi-Fi News & Record Review, Ken Kessler

A very effective and relatively low cost way of upgrading your sound - Kontak fluid is intended for use on all the connections , plugs, sockets in your system.

The fluid removes dirt and oxidation from the surface of the connection allowing better passage of current - The potential to improve sound is huge - especially in multi box set ups such as active systems - a small amount of Kontak onto all Phono plugs, Mains plugs, 4mm plugs, Spades, just a couple of times a year can produce a very impressive improvement in clarity and detail levels.

A Dirty World

In an ideal world the perfect electrical connection would exist when the two parts of an audio or video connector act as one. The junction between the two contact surfaces would then present no barrier to electron flow and signal integrity. The result- a perfectly reliable transfer of music and film.

Back to reality, where all electrical connections are inherently imperfect. Being machined apart and never fitting exactly, contaminates develop and cause oxidization. Worse, connectors are often machined and the silicon oil used in the manufacturing process is left to dry on. Then tored in a box for maybe months before reaching you, it is easy to imagine the results, and that's with new equipment!

The Solution


Kontak is an advanced cleaning solution (CFC-free) originally developed for military applications. Kontak completely removes all traces of contaminates on any connecting surface. And the new formula comes in a single bottle, making application simple.

What's New?


Talk to specialist retailers and up until now they have not recommended cleaners. The reason­ residues left by the fluid itself, encouraging oxidization and corrosion to form rapidly and eliminating any positive benefit the cleaner may have had.
Kontak leaves no residue on the surface of the connector.

The Result


Once Kontak has been used the contact resistance between connectors drops to virtually zero, enhancing signal flow. The subjective benefits gained from cleaning a system with Kontak are: improved bass response, enhanced low level detail and transparency, and a greater sense of dynamic range. The more connections cleaned with Kontak throughout an audio / video system, the greater the result.

What The Papers Say


"The difference, believe me, was palpable. The easiest way of describing the sound, fatuous though it might seem, is to say it was cleaner." "The soundstage seemed a little wider and a little deeper, and everything had pulled into sharper focus, string instruments have more bite, the piano notes becoming tighter, losing any slurring or smearing of definition."

I liked my Kontak and it was easy and painless to use.
To explain: having all the windows and doors replaced in the house meant dismantling the hi-fi and hiding it away. After all the dust has settled, and reconnecting all the various parts of my system - amplifier, CD Player, record deck with phono preamp, streamer, speakers etc, I thought it a good idea to clean the electrical contacts.
But what with? An internet search showed Kontac had good reviews and was one of the cheaper options. It even came complete with pipe cleaners!
Just under twenty pounds for what, by the smell of it, is not a large amount of iso-propyl alchohol may seem expensive, but it did the trick and the pipe cleaners showed a gratifying amount of black gunge after use.
Does the system no sound better? Possibly, so I was happy with the results.
I would have given five stars if the instructions had told mr what it was and included more pipe cleaners!

These are my 4th and 5th bottles over a 3 year period. Easy to use and appears very effective at keeping contact clean and maintaining consistency with the sound. The important point to note at recent cleans (6 monthly) is that there is hardly any dirt to remove. Contacts appear to stay clean between treatments. The sound is also consistent . In the past have used Cramolin 2 bottle treatment, effective but more time consuming, and did find dirt between cleans. Also used De-toxit which I found quite messy and not as effective as Cramolin or Kontak. Easy to recommend KONTAK.

The ultimate non-snakeoil!
Tuesday, 22 April 2014  | 

In a (hi-fi) world brimming with every conceivable lotion and potion to assist you on your journey to audio Nirvana, this (for me) is "The One".

Reassuringly hype-free, easy to use, excellent value: it does exactly as asked; no more, no less. If only life were always this straightforward!

I've Kontak'd my system regularly (every few months) for at least the past decade and I have no intention of desisting. The sonic revelation and sensation of "unveiling" one's system after treatment never ceases to delight.

If you ask me, "lightning in a bottle" is under-selling it. Seriously: invest without hesitation.
