  • The Most Effective Tools for Cleaning Male Cable Ends and Female RCA Connections!Clean your RCAs with the RCA Cleaning Tool!Simply the most effective way to clean your RCA cables and sockets, the RCA Cleaning Tool contains a proprietary blend of injection molded ingredients. The RCA Cleaning Tool is mildly abrasive, just enough to remove both grime and oxidation from any RCA without damaging the connector. Use your favorite contact cleaner or just by themselves, the RCA Cleaning Tool is a must have accessory.One end of the RCA Cleaning Tool looks like a male RCA, simply insert this end into any RCA jack and remove. Do not twist, just insert and remove. Repeat as necessary until the jack is clean.The other end of the RCA Cleaning Tool looks like a female RCA, insert the male plug of an RCA cable into this side and remove without twisting. The gentle abrasion will clean off both oxidization and carbonization from the positive pole and clears the ground path as well.

    Through a little bit of research, I have found a tool made by Signet that is a specifically designed RCA cleaning tool. It looks to be just a simple piece of plastic that may or may not work. There was one other tool I saw that looked like a mini pipe cleaner I have that also looks like it may or may not work. I'd like to know what tools you use, especially if you feel that you have used something better. Even if it is a home made tool.


  • Thanx for all of the great advice. I think that I'm going to order some of that DeOxIt stuff as well as that RCA cleaner tool. I'll probably pull apart my amp to and do a bit of inspection/dusting as well. I don't imagine that it's all that dirty because just a few years back I had it serviced for some other stuff (I think I remember having a ground problem with the phono) and I know that the place I took it to popped it open and cleaned it out a bit.

Yeah, I think I'm going to order the cleaner stuff as well as the RCA tool from that Music Direct place. Radio Shack it seem is unlucky to have both of those things as nowadays they are pretty much a glorified cell phone seller. Not to mention the fact that they their prices probably are on the high side... I wonder how high though once the shipping is included on that online order...
