Welcome to the Keith Monks Website

The Absolute Sound
Awarded 1970s/1980s
“AUDIO ACCESSORY OF THE DECADE”

The Keith Monks is the Original Record Cleaning Machine: the world’s first commercially produced electric device for cleaning gramophone records, originally developed by Keith Monks Audio for BBC engineers in London to meet the exacting standards of radio broadcasting.

Since 1969, experts agree: Keith Monks professional Record Cleaning Machines are the finest solution for the care, restoration and preservation of all sizes, all types and all generations of commercially made recorded discs: 7” 10” 12” and 16” transcriptions, vinyl LP records (self-adjusts for both standard and heavier audiophile pressings), 45rpm singles and shellac discs (78s) as well as rare, early, unusual and valuable records such as acetates, lacquers, laminated and vulcanite discs.

More than simply removing the distracting surface noise, the same process is world famous for actually enhancing and enriching the quality of the sound – even on brand new discs.

This classic design has stood the test of time and, through all its improvements over the years, remains true to its original concept: the scientifically correct way to clean records. Now re-engineered with a number of new refinements to further improve both form and function, today the whisper-quiet Keith Monks Record Cleaning Machine (‘RCM’) is still regarded by discerning broadcasters, sound restoration engineers, archives and archivists, librarians, audiophiles, hi-fi experts and music enthusiasts around the world as the only serious choice for Precision Record Cleaning, and the standard by which all others are judged.

A piece of audio history, that now looks and works better than ever before. And, when used with the new Keith Monks discOvery TM Natural Precision Record Cleaning Fluids, your record transformed into a true collector’s piece – restored, revitalised and, with continued care, preserved for life.

See the legendary Keith Monks Record Cleaning Machine for yourself at your local Keith Monks retailer or authorised Keith Monks Record Cleaning Centre now. See and hear the difference.
Try it once and discover why we say, ‘Miracles take a little longer’.
