:D Read a review on 6Moons. Very interesting. So I checked the forums but could not find any info. Has anyone here tried this yet? :) Just wondering? Just looking for feedback. And I thought I was already grounded :lol: But hey, what do I know? :? Thanks in advance, cheers, lloyd

I had these cables demonstrated to me earlier this year. I was skeptical but they certainly improved sonics in the 2 systems we used. The individual that was doing the demonstration was someone I highly respect in the industry and they admitted that there will be some cases that this cable will not be necessary. I am not a Gutwire dealer BTW.

:D Thanks for the honest reply, Rene. Where might the Gutwire Perfect Ground not be necessary? My house is grounded as are two of the sheds. So maybe I might not need them, cheers, lloyd

thinking theoretically here unless the component only has a 2 prong cord this optional ground seems moot?

also, how does it address the possibility of introducing noise or even a potential ground loop?

thirdly, why not just add a grounding tap to an existing power cord like rca cables did specifically for turntables?

I dunno about this one....seems an easy enough diy to try thing...

This is a 'try it in your specific system to see if there is an improvement' product which is, unfortunately, not convenient due to your distance from a Gutwire dealer.

BinkyTheCat raises an interesting question about a possible ground loop issue. I ain't smart enough to answer that one.
