Atlas Cables has introduced the latest addition to its range of cabling solutions – the Grun Coherent Earthing System. Conceived for use with the company’s range-topping Asimi and Mavros analogue interconnects, the Grun system essentially provides an independent earth, negating RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) and EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference) commonly found in homes due to the proliferation of wireless data transfer and dirty power supplies that degrade the overall noise levels of an audio system.
Key USPs of the Grun solution include:
- Screen connectivity directly to earth as opposed to modulating system 0v
- Improved transparency of OCC conductor material and wideband dielectric
- Effective delivery of crimping (as opposed to soldering)
- Symmetrical topology with an independent ground
- Upgradable solution
As opposed to typical RCA cables that connect to system 0v, Grun works by connecting the cable screen directly to earth. The result of this is the elimination of circulating currents in the cable screen and the removal of any modulation of the 0v at the screen connection point.
What’s all the noise about?
Arguably one of the defining obstacles in achieving listening perfection… noise. Although many of the ‘noises’ affecting a system’s performance are within a frequency range that is beyond what a human can detect, once eliminated, the overall experience is vastly improved, say the company. Mobile phone interference and WiFi networks all contribute to this unwanted noise, that manifests itself as distortion.
The Atlas Grun Coherent Earthing system addresses this problem by providing an ‘independent’ earth and connecting straight to the ground.
