    I'm not sure if this has been discussed before, but I was wondering if anyone in here actively cleans their RCA connections. I'm digging into vintage-ish gear and I'd imagine 40 years of gunk MUST be inside/around the RCA inputs/outputs on this gear. So if I wanted to clean the, how would I do that, and what would I need? Any solvents, special tools, etc.?

    TIA,
    Steven

    I've always used De-oxit and q-tips for this. Kind of tedious, but it works.

    Agreed.....and I've used a very soft bristle toothbrush for extra stubborn gunk. Be VERY gentle with the toothbrush.
