    I favor Deoxit... R5 Power Booster ... and ProGold G100L concetrate. All Caig Labs products.

    Have never used Kontak.

    I treat all my connections with either a combo of above or just ProGold.

    Why ? :?) Beats Brasso ....... and an inspection of cloth after a dirty contact convinced me.

    BOK

    I have two favorites:
    1. Caig Pro GOld (I use every week and you can hear the difference)
    2. Kontak

    just curious lee, and not intended as anything other than curiousity, but after you've cleaned your contacts, and assuming they're composed of a relatively inert material such as gold, rhodium, etc., after you've reassembled them, why would you need to clean them weekly? I'd think, in the case of something like RCA's, a piss-poor connector to begin with, you'd be exascerbating the wearing out of the gold plating, no?

    I use Brasso to clean my cd's. Can I use it for contacts too?

    well Lee, I've got pictures that prove otherwise! rhodium is a good metal, inert and not soft like gold.
