Electrical noise infiltrates music and movie systems, fact. As vibration and mechanical noise are detrimental to quality, high frequency noise is also the enemy; and it is everywhere. The best audio and video equipment minimises HF noise but here’s another way: Chord Company GroundARAY.
The Salisbury scientists have done it again – Chord GroundARAY cylinders extract HF noise from unused ports on your equipment to effectively ‘clean’ the audio signal path and improve (dramatically!) audio quality.
