Grounding

Entreq Grounding lowers the noise floor, improving imaging and micro detail. Signal grounding also increase dynamic range and contrast, creating a more emotional experience when listening to music. You typically connect the signal ground of a component with an Entreq Eartha Grounding Cable to the Entreq grounding box. There are various grounding boxes available as follows:

Minimus

1 ground post

Minimus has a single dedicated ground post. It's capacity is generally limited to either a couple of dedicated ground cables, to ground your equipment, or for the use with our own signal cables. This can be with our digital, USB, analogue or speaker cables.

Silver Minimus, like its sibling the Minimus, has a single ground post. However, it incorporates the same enhancements and mineral mix as the Silver Tellus, thus offering a significantly more effective grounding than the standard Minimus. Even a brief exposure to the Silver Minimus will quickly validate its benefit. You can increase the performance of the Silver Minimus by adding the optional Atlantis Minimus box (see below).

Olympus Minimus ground boxes are different from Minimus /Silver Minimus in many ways. When we developed the “Supercharger line” Atlantis we found many interesting details. Unfortunately we could not simply implement these ideas directly into the Silver Minimus or Silver Tellus without fundamentally changing the product.

With the Olympus line we were totally free to implement all of our combined knowledge, using no fixed parameters to re-design from the ground up.

So in the Olympus line we have an all new mineral-mix, as well as a reduction of the quantity of some metal particulates, there is the inclusion of some all new metals ( for example Magnesium). Olympus Minimus, like our other Minimus, has only one post but in this case it is now solid Silver. Needless to say it is now the top model in the Mini Ground boxes.

Olympus is primary designed for grounding Pre-amps and DAC's. But it can also do a very good job with the grounding of our cables and CleanUs line. The most significant difference in performance, compared to the Silver Minimus, is more texture and air in the lower frequency as well as more detail and better overall flow in the music. Like our other ground boxes it is made of Oak but with the Olympus you can also order it in a dark Oak finish.

Poseidon

3 ISOLATED ground posts

Poseidon can be best described as three totally independent Olympus Minimus in one neat enclosure (the 3 Poseidon posts are not galvanically connected as are the Tellus posts). With its three pure solid Silver binding posts the Poseidon offers a tremendous level of performance and an almost limitless set of options. One option in particular is the ability to now Ground each channel of your amplifier (since the posts are not galvanically connected), via the negative amplifier or speaker terminals, while simultaneously and independently being able to Ground your Pre-amp or DAC at the same time. This option alone offers an unrivalled level of performance yet to be attained in any other single Entreq Ground box. This is just one option, please let your imagination and your dealer take you further.

Tellus

3, 4 or 6 ground posts with COMMON ground plane

Tellus offers three dedicated ground posts. This allows for up to a maximum of six ground cables to be simultaneously attached to the ground station. Until the introduction of our Silver Tellus, the Tellus was our reference product for many many years. Its ability & capacity to lower the noise floor, when used with our dedicated ground cables, can be quite incredible.

Silver Tellus has four dedicated ground posts and can handle up to eight devices. In addition to the enhanced design of the Silver Tellus, it also includes 30% more Silver in its specialist mineral mix. All of these advancements have resulted in a significant improvement in the effectiveness of the Silver Tellus to reduce noise in any hi-fi system to vanishing levels. You can increase the performance of the Silver Tellus by adding the optional Atlantis Tellus box (see below).

Olympus Tellus ground boxes are different from Tellus/Silver Tellus in many ways. When we developed the Atlantis  “Supercharger line” we found many interesting details. Unfortunately we could not simply implement these ideas directly into the Silver Tellus without fundamentally changing the architecture of the product.

With the Olympus line we were totally free to implement all of our combined knowledge, using no fixed parameters to re-design from the ground up. So in the Olympus Tellus we have seven grounding posts and employ an all new mineral-mix. As well as a reduction of the quantity in some metal particulates. There is also the inclusion of some all new metals, one of which is Magnesium. This together with six all new solid Silver binding posts, instead of our normal solid Copper posts, gave us an even better noise reduction.

In the Olympus Tellus we have also employed one special solid Copper binding post that is completely ISOLATED from the other six Silver grounding posts. This can be used for connecting a specific new mains Eartha Apollo ground cable with Plug-to-Spade connectors, 1.65m, and is included in the price. This can give a direct connection to the protective ground found in your mains sockets. This reduces the noise floor significantly! It can of course also be used for other purposes.

The Olympus Tellus offers the same overall sonic signature as the Olympus Minimus. Deep and massive low frequencies while still retaining the air and texture in the wider spectrum. The separate isolated outlet, allowing direct connection to a wall socket, (the protective ground) will give you a whole new experience. Connection to the protective ground gives an even darker background and will let you explore more subtle nuance and details within the music. To be honest when we introduced Tellus 2010, we could never have dreamt that we could take grounding so far. We are just delighted that we have been able to produce something as good as the Olympus Tellus.

Atlantis

Superchargers for Existing Boxes

Atlantis Minimus (Supercharger for an existing Entreq ground box, it is not a standalone ground box) works in the same fashion as its bigger brother the Atlantis Tellus i.e. it provides a cleaner and more stable grounding platform to a current Entreq grounding box. This both boosts capacity, as well as performance, to an already established Entreq grounding system. Just like its bigger brother the Atlantis Tellus - the Atlantis Minimus comes supplied with a short and specifically designed umbilical cable (this is included in the purchase of the Atlantis Minimus) allows you to connect directly to one of our grounding boxes. The Atlantis Minimus is ideally used to enhance the performance of a Silver Minimus. The Atlantis Minimus is not a standalone ground box and should NOT be used in this way. Unlike other Entreq products, where experimenting is positively encouraged, both Atlantis Tellus and Atlantis Minimus should be used in a specific fashion to obtain the best results from an already established Entreq grounding system.

Atlantis Tellus (Supercharger for an existing Entreq ground box, it is not a standalone ground box) has one ground post and designed as a "supercharger" for the Silver Tellus. The Atlantis can not be used on its own. The Atlantis Tellus  comes supplied with a short and specifically designed umbilical cable (this is included in the purchase of the Atlantis Tellus) allows you to connect directly to one of our grounding boxes. The Atlantis, with its 10mm solid silver connector, silver conductors, plates and all new mineral mixture - delivers exactly the solution required of our design brief : darker backgrounds, even quieter noise floor, leading to a more natural, airy detailed sound. The Atlantis should be placed on top of the Silver Tellus and connected with the special included dedicated cable. For those using an entire Entreq cable system, the Atlantis also increases the capacity of Silver Tellus thus allowing more ground cables to be attached without loss or compromise of performance.

K2 & Everest

Wood Cap Upgrade

Entreq have always used wooden caps on their binding posts. Wood is totally neutral and adds no new grounding capacity and in that sense it is perfect. The opposite in fact to using plastic’s and most metals. Entreq used this fact to add performance to the ground boxes. You simply replace the wood caps on your existing ground box with either the K2 or Everest.

K2 use two different metals and in Everest we have mixed four. By adding this metal mix to the binding post, you change the performance of the whole box, not just for the binding post with the K2 or Everest. That means you can incrementally improve the box performance. Following are examples of the upgrade:

In our opinion K2 are more calm than Everest and fit very well for systems that are bright and need some more body.

Minimus: Single Ground post only - The replacement of a K2 or Everest to a Minimus will then allow it to, at least, outperform a standard Silver Minimus!

Tellus: Three Ground posts - As above the replacement of the K2 or Everest on a Tellus will offer a performance level higher than a Silver Tellus.

Silver Tellus: Again the K2 or Everest applied to a Silver Tellus will start to approach the performance of the mighty Olympus!

Everest then applied to Olympus Tellus and ……well you get the picture!

On ground boxes with multiple outlets you can of course change over each Ground post one at a time as and when funds allow OR of course all at once! You simply match the K2 or Everest to ensure optimal performance. Attach K2 our Everest and you will get an obvious leap in performance of your existing ground box.

Eartha Grounding Cables

Eartha ground cables have been designed to create an optimum ground path to the ground boxes and are available in several levels of performance. They are available with Spade, RCA and XLR connectors to allow you to attach and employ our grounding solution's in almost any conceivable scenario. One end with the spade attaches to the ground box. Standard length is 1.65 meters (5.4 feet), other lengths are available by special order at additional cost.

REVIEWS

 

“If we think about grounding as part of the system foundation and consider the role it plays, then the performance of the Entreq Tellus, Minimus and Eartha should come as no surprise. I consider them as genuinely vital elements or tools in the process of achieving the best possible performance from your system.”
