Stabilant 22 No Longer Available

Stabilant 22 has been removed from Recommended Components due to its no longer being available (maybe no longer manufactured?), but it is currently available on Ebay for less than retail with only about 300 units available for purchase right now (1-18-2021): https://www.ebay.com/itm/Stabilant-22-Liquid-Semi-Conductor-5-mL-kit-Electronic-Contact-Enhancer/381762729543

Not a tweak, more a solution to a real problem

Stabilant 22 is not going to make your system sound better than good clean contacts will, it will just keep them good and clean. The resistance of any contact with an IC, if the contact is reasonably clean is too small to matter. Keeping it clean is a different issue. Speakers contacts more an issue due to low resistance path. Need to keep those clean.

Nothing wrong with good clean

Nothing wrong with good clean contacts but audiophiles have found out in the last 25 years or so that “conditioners” like Craig products and contact enhancers such as current spate of graphene based products and earlier silver and silver-gold products go well beyond cleaners. Ever heard of micro arcing? How about oxidation? One thing that’s oft overlooked are the electrical contacts of non-audio outlets around the house.
