The other interesting thing, is that the more you plug into a preamp, the better it sounds. Is it worth unplugging all of you sources?

Eh? That's rather odd given that all the socket outers will connected to a common point. So if you connect your box to one socket you are actually connecting all the sockets to the box

Yes, but apparently it sounds better.

This is probably why they work....

Designed with a passion, through many years of constant progression and development, our cables could deliver your system with that unique Coherent signature, a naturally involving fuild sound with total cohesiveness yet yielding a very natural, open and fluid sound.

Do you think I should point out the smelling pistake?

My concern would be that the sound becomes too fluid....

Ive been following these grounding box threads with interest, saw some reviews on the entreq box months ago and it piqued my interest. Lots of positive reviews out there but also some that didnt notice any real gains like Steve here. I did buy a cigar box and a few other pieces a while back but i never got the minerals

Then there is this RTZ device which is targetting the same issues via different unknown mechanism with some very happy customers.

It should be noted that there are other options also out there as well as the nordost offering already mentioned. There is a company ive been reading review of on the audigon forum called perect path technologies that have 3 passive products that also target noise floor and getting rave reviews from many members over there.

Im convinced there is something in this but i need to rest my wallet for a bit after updating speakers, amp and subwoofer in the last 3 months. Then its working out the better options to try for your own system (im fully digital including the amp here) Interesting stuff though. Will continue to follow with keen interest
.
Interest piqued, read reviews, heard nothing, convinced there is something.

If it does make a difference, which is very doubtful, it can be achieved very cheaply. Any one paying these rip off amounts needs their head read. Forum owners are responsible for this nonsence by censoring common sense and piss takes.
