Every serious audiophile knows that properly grounding his equipment is of utmost importance to obtain the best possible sound quality. Of course companies have realised this and offer their own, very expensive, solutions. However, it can be a lot simpler, better and above all, a lot cheaper.
For the price, commercial solutions certainly don’t give you much ground. You may be lucky to get 1 kilo of ground for your hard earned cash. My solution is a lot simpler, and I believe is also a lot more effective since I simply cover a lot more ground than these small ground boxes can do. To have this effect, I ordered 15 metric tons or 10 cubic meters (more is better for every audiophile) of the best quality earth I could obtain.
Now that everything is carefully installed in place, it’s time to connect the earth wire to it. For now, I’m using the familiar copper wire with the obligatory green/yellow isolation. When funds allow it again, this is going to be replaced with a 10 mm2 wire made from unobtanium.
I’m also counting on my (and the neighbourhood) cats to keep the soil moist and at the correct acidity level for optimal results.
