    As I'm sure you know, in some components signal ground is connected to safety AC grounding, and is easy to determine with a multi-meter.

    Thanks! Frankly, I was unaware of how they worked so I probably should have kept quiet.

    Another endorsement of Entreq grounding boxes. My tube power amp and tube preamp are connected to a Poseiden via Apollo cables. What I have heard in my system is a larger & fuller soundstage, more tonal colour and a more engaging sound - with no loss of dynamics. I consider the money well spent.

    Agreed. I haven't taken mine out of the system.

    Re: Entreq Ground Boxes & Cables

    Reading through this thread, there seems to be confusion as to using Entreq with Vitus, as far as I know Vitus owners are using Entreq without problems? Can somebody clear this up.

    My own experience with using Entreq on a one day trial, was very positive. We started at the digital end with a Olympus Maximus connected to the fidata server and then went through upgrading the cables. Every stage was a positive. Moving to the Tallus 2 was slightly better I think, but I need to double check this? We then introduced the Poseidon, connecting the Mola Mola pre/dac to the centre post and the negative amp terminals separately to the two outer terminals. All the positive aspects of a clean back ground, more space around the instruments, more natural top end, better bass definition, were intensified with this set up. Highly recommended.

    PS Should add that the Everest’s had a positive result as well.

    Is there any continuity between the three terminals?

    No in the Poseidon they are totally independent.

    Re: Entreq Ground Boxes & Cables

    If the three terminals are all independent, then it will be safe. Just like connecting 3 independent insulated wires. Although some audiophiles call that 'Groundside Electronics'. All a wire connected at only one end can do is act as an antenna.

    Re: Entreq Ground Boxes & Cables

    What they tell you from Vitus, is exactly like what the Constellation technical service told me: If I plugged the negative terminals of my amplifier into two Silver Minimus boxes, the amplifier, "kaputt".
    Frankly I did not understand it, but I still did not dare. Until a guy from WBF sent a picture of his stereo Centaur, with the terminals connected to two Silver Minimus boxes, then I decided to do it. And ... nothing happened. Well, something happened, my system sounded better. Many manufacturers hear the word Earth, and they no longer want to hear anything more than you explain, say NO.
    On the other hand I have to say that in my experience with Entreq boxes, the connection of these to free signal outputs (RCA, XLR, USB, RJ45), has always improved the sound. However, this has not been the case when I have connected the chassis ground terminals (on those devices that have them).
