A “Ground” Breaking New Product

Chord Company GroundARAY

The Chord Company have just released their latest exciting product – the Chord GroundARAY.

The GroundARAY is a next-generation high-frequency-noise-reduction device that connects to unused sockets on hi-fi equipment providing a low-impedance route for HF noise to pass through, directly improving the noise floor of the ‘host’ product.

The GroundARAY is a cylindrical design made from precision CNC-machined thick-walled aluminium; the thick walls themselves stop the device from contributing HF noise. Available in six termination options, including RCA, 5 Pin DIN, USB A, RJ45 and XLR, for a wide range of digital and analogue hi-fi devices, the GroundARAY benefits from five separate noise-reduction systems, all working across different HF noise ranges and operating in parallel to convert undesirable HF electrical noise into heat.

Chord Company GroundARAYThe advanced technologies provide a very low-impedance, high-bandwidth route for HF noise to pass into, effectively ‘pulling’ noise from the signal ground of the host equipment.

GroundARAYs are most effective when used across several devices in a hi-fi system. The devices simply plug into existing empty sockets and can be used individually, or in multiples, such as across left and right outputs etc.

With DACs and streamers, GroundARAYs can be used with unused digital inputs. Also works particularly well with “noisy” items such as ethernet switches and network attached storage (NAS).

The Chord GroundARAY is on demonstration at Cymbiosis now.
