the Ultimate Cleaner
The new Kontak
comes as an all-in-one fluid in a single 25ml bottle instead of two
different fluids requiring two fiddly jars. The Socket/Plug cleaning
and treatment all take place with one action, the new fluid combining
the two acts so successfully that all you have to do is apply the fluid
(with Vigour...) and make the connection. Kontak comes with pipe
cleaners, though cotton buds can be used (I prefer Q-Tips), and you
simply scrub until you see the 'contamination and oxides' turn your
cleaning implement black. Remake the connection and your ready to rock.
Even the evapouration rate has been reduced,
a problem for those who were slow to replace the caps on the bottles.
Does it work as well? You betcha. Faced with a number of older units
awaiting refurbishment (for the museum at the Hi-fi Show), I had plenty
of reason to welcome a simpler cleaning method. And while it's hard to
'A/B' cleaning fluids, I have no doubt that Kontak is still the best of
them all. Rest assured that any reviewing that I undertake in the
furture will involve a bout of Kontak before the listening begins.
