Any recommendations for cleaning DIN pins?


Autosol will remove the Nickel plating :anguished:

Explains the dark buds :wink:

I wouldn’t use Autosol here - it’s highly abrasive and may well damage the plugs and sockets, requiring replacement.


I think you’re over estimating the amount of polishing I’m doing and under estimating the thickness of nickel.

The improvement in sound quality since I cleaned the sockets is not subtle.

It’s obviously up to you but I know from know how abrasive autosol is as use it on my car exhaust and bumpers. Even using it on stainless steel the cloth is always black from material removed.

Indeed - Brilliant for cleaning the inside of my exhaust pipes. I wouldn’t use it on the Hi-Fi though :flushed:

I rest my case. Clean as a whistle…

What others do with their pipes is their business :grinning:


That would take one hell of an RCA… :melting_face:

I used to use Autosol on my Pace (MTB). Excellent stuff.

At the risk of violating Forum Rules, might I enquire where you find cotton swabs to fit this.

I’m sure @Richard.Dane wants a quiet evening down the pub in the sunshine so here’s a ‘clean’ response to save any moderation :grinning:

Given that this is an issue that Benchmark also noticed and resolved by going to Speakon connectors, why don’t Naim do the same?

I need bigger Q tips🤔


Ah the classic rolled edged SS exhaust. I remember driving up to Tube Torque in Macclesfield to have a turbo back system fitted to my RS Turbo. Fun times :grinning:


My Tube Torque exhaust finally got beyond repair after 20 years of service. Mark always rolled his tailpipes inwards though.

Sadly Tube Torque are no more. :slightly_frowning_face:

Ah yes you’re right - it was quite a while back. My Scorpion system fitted by Castle Performance, had the rolled edge. The Tube Torque I had fitted later was rolled inwards and a lot quieter too !

My system is now a Scorpion, nice but not as good as the Tube Torque. :hear_no_evil:
