The Athena support system is a culmination of Entreq’s knowledge & combined technologies brought together in a support system primarily focused on the control of unwanted physical parasitic energy, high frequency noise & electronic/electrical based field effects. Therefore, by default it bears little resemblance to almost any other support system currently available. This is simply because it tackles a gamut of problems that traditional HiFi Racks do not take in to consideration. The Athena is therefor far more effective on many levels than any other comparably priced solution and can be configured in both performance and price terms to suit each customer’s system requirements, thus ensuring a dramatic reduction in the noise floor on all three fronts

  • Minimal metal construction to reduce the interaction of different metals and their subsequent uncontrolled field effects on the signals themselves.
  • Naturally damped, multiple constrained layered construction – not random bits of wood machined in to the shape of shelves – also a completely non-magnetic material.
  • Anti – resonance porting within each shelf.
  • Active Silvernet system (entire shelf) to reduce RF/RFI and other noise inducing field effects,lowering the noise floor dramatically.
  • Finally a Solid Silver Grounding point, found on Level 2-3 shelf construction, allowing the option toefficiently remove all high frequency induced field effects, leading them away to an Entreq grounding Box.

    Choice HiFi- Background and Overview of Entreq Grounding and Cable Solutions

    Entreq takes a unique and comprehensive approach to cable design. Tackling the often-overlooked factors affecting cable and therefore equipment performance.

    The premise of their design philosophy is based on solving effects know to the Aerospace and other high tech industries but never before systematically applied to high-end audio cables.

    These are:
    1. Our equipment is being constantly bombarded by RF and EMI radiation.
    2. Modern homes and their electrical supplies are plagued by switching power supplies and heavy appliances.
    3. All cables act as sending and receiving antennas
    4. Connectors have to be adapted according to the signal being processed. The cable, signal/mass interface is crucial to accurate signal transmission.
    5. A current traveling in a wire creates a magnetic field.
    6. Careful attention has to be paid to ground planes. (In space of course there is no “earth” so an artificial ground has to be created)

    Entreq has uniquely designed and developed a whole system approach to tackle and address each of the above issues, by doing the following:

    1. Separate cable for positive and negative signals.
    2. Asymmetrical design.
    3. Positive and negative cables are spun clockwise and anticlockwise respectively.
    4. Adapted lengths to minimise the antenna effect.
    5. DIC Dedicated contacts so the area and the mass of the contacts correspond to
    the cable.
    6. Wood in the contact framework – Non-magnetic and non-conductive.
    7. Only pure copper and silver in the signal paths. No alloys.
    8. Drain wire instead of shielding in order to connect to a pure earth point (External Earth Drain System).
    9. Cotton covering instead of synthetic materials.
    10. EEDS External Earth Drain System.

    The result is that Entreq cables and grounding solutions maintain the integrity and purity of the audio signal, resulting in:
    1. Lower noise floor
    2. More detail
    3. Darker backgrounds
    4. Increased dynamic range
    5. Better soundstage
    6. A more natural tonal quality
    7. Loss of leading edge glare
    8. More and better defined bass

    Entreq solution can be applied either individually or as part of a complete system approach. The more you do the better the result.
