To achieve the optimal performance from both RCA & XLR signal cable’s they require a ground cable for L & R channels, as well as a ground box solution to connect to. The appropriate ground cables & ground box should be chosen as carefully as the interconnects themselves. Careful matching will optimize the level of performance for each individual system.
Wherever possible digital cables and analogue signal or speaker cables should run to independent grounding stations. This reduces the modulation of high frequency noise sharing the same ground plane as the analogue signal cables. Ground cables are available in standard 1.65m lengths but can be specially ordered in the length required. This often helps with the correct positioning of the chosen Ground Box.
All speaker cables require 2 x Ertha 3.5 ground cables & a ground box solution. They can of course share other analogue connections to either a Tellus or Silver Tellus. As with all Entreq cables, careful selection of the appropriate ground cables & Ground box solution will affect the overall performance of the speaker cables.
Digital, Clock & AES/EBU cables are only available in increments of 0.55m. To obtain optimal performance from this range of cables each of these cables requires a dedicated ground cable which in turn needs to be attached to one of the Ground Box solutions. Where possible please try to use an independent Ground Box, for both the Clock & Digital cables, this is to minimise high frequency ground plane noise which could affect the performance of both the analogue & Digital cables.
For optimal performance, at an additional cost, all USB cables require a ground cable & amp; a Ground Box solution.
