Our GroundBox [Gen .2] realizes an uncompromising star-shaped grounding and offers eight connections as input. It is the perfect partner for grounding our Composant S device bases. Audio system devices can also be connected to a [Gen .2] GroundBox, which can be disturbed by the additional use of Vividus. The grounding cables required for the connection are also available from us, in different qualities. The Subbase Premium grounding cables are also our standard and are only topped by an Ultima Musica grounding cable from Refine GmbH.
You may wonder why grounding device bases makes a difference in the first place, depending on which cables are connected? The difference lies in the speed of the faults to be discharged, as well as the bandwidth of the interference frequency spectrum. Can you hear that? Yes, without a doubt!
At this point, please note that bases and audio devices are not connected together to a GroundBox.
The solid grounding block of the GroundBox [Gen .2] is made of E-Cu copper (high-purity electrolyte copper) and is directly silver-plated. In addition, all conductive materials have been optimized by Refine GmbH. The entire housing is resonance-trimmed, which significantly improves the homogeneous calm throughout the sound. The grounding block is coupled with all other components by a clamping process and is defined by us in production via torque exactly in its resonance frequency. The materials used form a unit and have been selected according to their individual characteristics.
The revamped outfit of the GroundBox [Gen .2] was inspired by vividus’ look. Black anodized, finely brushed aluminium combined with black nickel-plated high-gloss surfaces underline the straight industrial design. Ebony was used for the headpieces.
The GroundBox [Gen .2] is small, it finds a place everywhere, but it is also surprisingly heavy, which makes its stand very solid.
The workmanship coupled with the optical qualities leaves no doubt here and convey once again …”it is not possible to do better”.
