The Atlantis MinimUs 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 & specifically designed umbilical cable( this is included in the purchase of the Atlantis MinimUs) that allows you to connect directly on to the back of one of our dedicated grounding box's. The Atlantis MinimUs is ideally used to enhance the performance of a Silver MinimUs. The Atlantis MinimUs is not a stand alone ground box and should NOT be used in this way. Unlike other Entreq products, where experimenting is positively encouraged, both Atlantis Tellus & MinimUs should be used in a specific fashion to obtain the best results from an already established Entreq grounding system.
Why use our Ground Box's ?
You will get improved dynamic, lower noicefloor and more natural flow in sound.
For us a clean and effective ground point is one of the most important factor's in ensuring the best possible sonic platform for any hifi system!
We normally say 220V 50Hz alternative110 V 60Hz. But in our opinion there are a lot more frequence on the power net. These is caused by the way we connect zero and protective ground together in the main central/fuse boxes.Most things these days run on electricity. Current goes in and current goes out of devices and lighting fixtures of every kind. All of these make the current messy. Not least computers with their switched power units, chargers for e.g., mobile telephones, all the halogen and LED lighting, dimmers etc. all cause a great deal of high-frequency noise and stay voltages. This noise always seeks the easiest path to the earth. And since this can be everything from 50-60 Hz to very high-frequency, but weak, currents, it is not always certain that the path of least resistance is via the protective earth. These currents instead can find dishwashers, laundry machines, counter tops with water pipes, your HiFi rack and your stereo set with all the cables and devices as more attractive paths to the earth. Moreover, these stay voltages often generate very large magnetic fields that absolutely have influence on the sound reproduction.
One big problem is that the protective ground many time are overloaded or not constructed for handle this pollutions. It can handle a real "bang" of 110-220Volt and X Watts without any problems, but when it come to this small currents of some Milli V with very high frequence it dont catch them. So instead these will flow arround in the power system searching for a place to ground. And in fact the protective grond can leak back a lot of pollutions to the power net that instead go to f,ex your HiFi system with all the cables and magnetic fields and load up and rest there in their serch for ground.Our ground boxes / Eartha cables are designed to resemble and work like a bit of Mother Earth in concentrated form and offer the simplest and fastest route for this high-frequency noise to reach a earth point. Since such are very high-frequency weak currents, it is not necessary to have a lot of mass; but it is important that the cables are optimized for these high frequency and the groundbox be a purely attractive earth point.The construction and choice of materials in the earth box has a crucial effect on the result. In part, the minerals and metals involved have an effect, but the relationship of proportion and distance between them also affects the result.
When you connect your system to one of our groundboxes you offer this high frequence stay voltages a ground point where they can find peace instead of flowing arround in the system.
