RUSS ANDREWS SUPERROUTER AUDIO GROUNDING

Russ Andrews, one of the world’s longest-standing proponents of audio grounding, is launching its most advanced grounding product yet, the Russ Andrews SuperRouter.

The Russ Andrews SuperRouter™ is designed to provide an efficient ground for hifi equipment and also deal with the inherent RF interference in hifi systems.

The SuperRouter incorporates everything Russ and his R&D team have learnt over the past 40 years about grounding and RFI. As with the company’s existing RF Router™, the SuperRouter works on the basis that the best way to ground hifi equipment is to connect the casework to a ground point, via an RFI shunt device, to route RF noise in the circuits to ground: hence the name ‘Router’.

The SuperRouter features audio-grade internal components and a custom-designed circuit board that optimise the RF filtering from the incoming ground signal. The circuitry effectively grounds the RF, reducing its effects on the audible performance of the hifi system.

GROUND ZERO

Connecting the SuperRouter into an audio system is a simple operation of grounding the casework from each of the components.  This is done using the pre-amplifier (or integrated) as the hub, to which the case of each other component is connected using grounding cables. The case of the pre or integrated amplifier is then connected to one of the input sockets on the SuperRouter and this in turn is connected to an earth rod, which is the preferred method, or to the dedicated ground terminal on one of the Russ Andrews mains wall sockets – SuperSockets, UltraSockets or Signature Sockets. If separate power amplifiers are used, their cases are connected directly to the SuperRouter.

ABS CASEWORK

Manufactured from low loss PTFE, the custom-designed circuit board of the SuperRouter has high stability and very low resonance properties, making it ideal as an effective conductor for RF grounding. The ABS casework incorporates the 12 black nickel-plated input binding posts and a clearly identified yellow output post for connection to the earth rod or socket.

The SuperRouter Signature Edition features a decorative solid cherry wood top plate and WBT-0710Cu gold plated pure copper binding posts for an even more effective connection to ground.

Launching the new products, Russ Andrews says, “One of the standout products over the past few years has been our grounding system, as more and more audiophiles are becoming aware of the importance of quality grounding. We have been researching its effects on audio performance for many, many years and discovered that, while star-grounding the equipment casework and then onto an earth rod provides a very effective upgrade in performance, the inclusion of an RFI shunt in the signal path is even better.” He continues, “The SuperRouter takes what we learnt during the development of our shunt-based RF Router to the next level”.

PRICE

Russ Andrews is extending its product upgrade path to users of its existing routers. Anyone with a RF Router or plug-in RF Router can return it for a credit against the SuperRouter. Products under one year old will be credited at 100% of their purchase price, within two years they will get 75% back and over two years the credit will be 50%.

The SuperRouter is available now:

Standard Version with nickel binding posts: £699

Signature Edition with WBT-0710 binding posts: £1199
