This should garner some interesting and controversial comments.

Sometimes even with an explanation I'm confused.

Example from another cam ad,

"As much as it is a superior product, the user of the product seems to expect a further "better" quality. In addition to the recent availability of xxx Limited-Edition, this time Speaker xxx-Limited-Edition has been produced for the suggestion and the request from royal xxx users who want the ultimate sound quality. The speaker xxx-Limited-Edition is made out of assembly of many of selected and special made materials for the ultimate sound quality in response to a demand. Therefore, it is the product being sold out when the supply of materials last. "

As long as there are people who are more interested in obsessive tweaking than actually listening to music, there will be no shortage of little boxes designed to separate them from their money.

Breaking down your question into manageable parts, I am 100% convinced that it is indeed a "box".
The evidence is completely clear.

As to the "grounding" aspect, I can find nothing :shock:

Sounds like something taken off an Ali-Express ad.

All I can say is that I aspire to owning a system so revolving that I need this sort of stuff to improve the sound of said system.

Jeez, I hope your system doesn't revolve. It'd be a bugger getting to the turntable to put a record on. :wink: :mrgreen:

I read that the box contains a granulated mineral with electrodes embedded in it. Apparently these "salts" electro molecular structure is ideal for providing the most consistent drain for signals.

Aside from that, I'd have to see more to comment on the efficacy of such a device.

What I don't understand is what "problem" does this device solve? Would it not make more sense to have the power sorted out in regards to ground loops, IM interference, feedback etc. before considering such an expensive device? I'd look at power distribution not charged crystals.
