Description

Building on the success of Aucharm Grounding Boxes, QA has embark on prototyping and thus developed its own version with the aim of improving the structural build as well as further enhancing the quality and effect of the ground boxes offered.

QA Premium Audio Grounding Box, at a little over 2kg, weighs heavier than Aucharm XL Grounding Box. Not only is that containing more ‘ingredient’ for a more effective grounding, we have found out this can be an optimal mass to be used on most regular equipment. The choice of using a cube-shaped box is also a deliberate one – it looks balanced, non-obtrusive and can be easily placed on any side as required per anyone’s equipment arrangement. It is small in footprint and hence it may look even sleeker than Aucharm XL Grounding Box.

Internally, pure copper sheets at 0.05mm thickness lined the walls of the box. This creates a ‘live’, contained box acting like a mini Earth for the noises to be grounded and the surround conductivity also maximises the contact with the contents inside the box.

The main contact, however, has to come from the central rod of the speaker binding post where another thicker, folded sheet of pure copper as well as dozens strands of 4N purity silver wires are attached. Basically the aim is to get all the unwanted noise and interference current from the audio equipment it is attached to and get them to contact with the box contents as much as possible.

This ingredients mix has always been the guarded secret for almost all such ground boxes commercially available. But every box will have a different mixture. QA Premium Audio Grounding Box uses a vast selection of mineral mix in various granular sizes to balance the compacting nature together with the grounding strength from the assortment. About 2kg in total weight, there is no scrimping at all in the use of these minerals, all of which are natural.

We would have shaken and mixed evenly the contents on our end during our production, hence any vigorous shaking on customer’s end is not strictly necessary. Breaking in of this grounding box will be beneficial, but the positive effect can already be quite immediately evident straight on first use. We always recommend to connect ground boxes at the earliest possible components of the audio chain because that can help to result in a cleaner signal path as much as possible right from the beginning. Hence connecting to CDP, DAC, Turntable, pre amps and power strip/conditioner have the most impact of the setup.

From our observation, the more transparent background allows instruments to be better lifted to the foreground, where the boominess in the bottom frequency above sub-bass often due to noise is now better suppressed. One can expect a cleaner and faster bass. There is also better spaciousness from the sense of air some recordings may possess which gives vocal music an added touch of intimacy.

QA has included the multipurpose crocodile-clip cable for your wide variety of connections. We recommend the use of specific RCA to Banana plug cable if the intention is to connect the ground box to spare RCA ports instead using the crocodile clip to clip on the RCA ports. It can be ordered here.

    Is quite beautifully handmade with the box nicely glued and surface finished smoothly.. The binding post seems bigger and is higher quality in real life than in pictures and secured very tightly. After a while of connecting to my cd player I can kind of hear some improvement. It just makes the listening more enjoyable. May consider getting again.

    I have dealt with Jordan twice, each time buying a grounding box. Both product and service are excellent. Jordan is a a great communicator and did his best to insure I was happy with my purchase. I highly recommend Quartz Acoustic.

    Its pretty straightforward to detect any improvements with ground boxes either it does or it doesn’t! The other 2 brands hardly elicit any difference im sonics except real estate of my abode! This one is exceptional. The first area of improvements is more bass definition and a clearer rendering of the human voice. I tried it on my Marantz and OPPO respectively. I haven’t have the chance to try it on my Sim Audio as it is taking a hiatus in a workshop. Secondary improvements include a slightly darker background (OPPO especially) this is quite impressive as l consider my set up to be exceptionally quiet -balanced isolation and extensive room tuned etc… The small form factor is another plus in addition the cable is of a thicker gauge contributing to the ‘defeat’ of a seemingly much meaner looking rival groundbox. My cavil are the excessive short length of the supplied cable l guess Jordan did it for sonic reasons and availability of more finishes. I guess the latter would translate into higher costs for audiophiles like myself. Summary : its small, it works and the price doesn’t cost cardiac arrests and its fairly good looking and non obtrusive. Verdict buy it or them especially with the 14-day return policy what have you got to lose?

      Thanks Michael for your kind compliments and detailed observation! Understood on the cable length concern – as these are individual boxes connected to its respective equipment, so putting them near to each other is one standard placement. The Quad Size+ on the other hand is a centralise unit of having connections up to 4 equipment, so we lengthened the given cable lengths to 1m each to reach them. In any case, there is also possibility to customise a longer length, in whichever unit one used on, just sound us up! 🙏
