Unique advantages of owning and operating a Keith Monks

So many choices ... so why a Keith Monks ?

  • Worried about safety or recontamination from wet pads, newer 'tribute' brands or ultrasonic microwaves ?  Relax: use the same system the Professionals use.  The Keith Monks is the only brand and technique trusted and approved by all the world's major sound archives including the British Library and US Library of Congress.

  • We really do know record cleaning!  Half a century on from inventing the world's first electric record cleaner, the Keith Monks is in many ways still unique, and remains the state of the art standard by which all others are judged.

  • Benefit from decades of experience - run by people not only dedicated to quality, but also genuinely passionate about our music.

  • Reveal the true sound and high value hidden away in all your records.

Which discOvery cleaner ?

  • All discOvery machines combine all the benefits of the professional Keith Monks broadcast standard system  original developed with the BBC, with nearly all the automation of newer technology cleaners.  In less than half the time, for almost half the price.

  • The microLight is extremely small - just 16.5" 42cm wide - and fits and beautifully blends in (and lights up) any room in your home.

  • If you have a little more space and want more speed and convenience, the discOveryOne models have the wash system built in - which can make lighter work of it especially if you have a lot of records to get through.


Pro Monks vs discOvery Monks for the home ?

  • There is no difference in performance between the discOvery cleaners and the traditional professional Monks models - all use medical grade (reliable, quiet) vacuum pump technology from Germany.  We do not believe in degrees of clean, the record always has to be completely dry and free of contamination, and ready to play.

  • The components are smaller though, so the auto thermal protect switch kicks in sooner - but only after about 8 or 9 hours.  So either way, you'll still get a good day's cleaning.

"Automatic for the People" !

  • The biggest advantage of all discOvery models is the auto shut off - in a few seconds, put the fluid on, move the suction arm, then go do something else.  When you return, the machine has finished and the record is ready to play.

  • Auto reel out of the nozzle cushion thread, and auto shut off with warning light-buzzer when waste fluid jar is full

  • So simple and intuitive to use. 

  • All models come supplied with a lid cover as standard.





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 oil removal 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.

  • Yes, "miracles do take a little longer" ... but longer makes perfect.  And with the discOveryOne's auto shut off for unattended cleaning, you really won't notice.

Zero Recontamination

  • The teaspoon of fluid per record is vacuumed away and never reused - even the buffer thread that cushions the suction nozzle tip off the record is auto refreshed every time.  No build up of oils, no damp pads redepositing contaminated fluids - your 100th record will be 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 claim such consistency and performance. 

  • Precision Record Cleaning cannot be done cheaply by cutting corners, nor by using industrial microwave gadgetry ... this is why the Keith Monks remains uniquely, Keith Monks.

Super simple ~ superb build ~ super silent !

  • Easy and intuitive to operate, and built to last.

  • Won't disturb others in your living room or in store.

  • Happily listen to the record you just cleaned, while cleaning the next.
