IFI AUDIO GROUNDHOG+
The iFi Audio Groundhog+ cable set eliminates buzz effects and ground loops while optimizing the grounding of any multimedia, hi-fi, or home theater device. This Plus version of the iFi Audio Groundhog offers increased performance.
This cable set allows multimedia players, amplifiers, music players or DACs to be grounded in order to improve audio and video reproduction, if not transcend it: that is exactly what iFi Audio Groundhog is.
The Groundhog+ is particularly interesting for the Zappiti Pro 4K HDR (and its Audiocom version), in particular when it is installed in a technical bay, often at the origin of ground loop effects. It can also be useful in the context of hi-fi installations subject to buzz effects or subject to a grounding problem.
For the iFi Audio Groundhog accessories to work, all you have to do is connect the mains adapter to a mains cable (itself connected to the mains), then combine the different adapters to connect the electronic device of your choice: turntable, player network, audiophile player, etc. The only constraint: that the RCA, USB or mini-jack connector used for earthing is not used.
Four adapters are supplied: an IEC14 male cable (with a single earth connector) to mono male RCA, a mono female RCA to USB A cable, a mono female RCA to fork cable and a female stereo RCA to mini-jack 3 adapter, 5 mm male. It is the latter that should be used in combination with the IFI Audio AC Purifier, if you have a Zappiti Pro 4K HDR.
