Grounding dCS Vivaldi

Hello. I am the owner of a full Vivaldi system. I would like to try to connect the DAC and/or the Transport to an Entreq ( ground box.

What would be the best possible connection? Can I use the RCA or BNC inputs?

Many thanks.

Why ? The sound of your stereo is not good enough ? :laughing:

Perhaps because I’ve tried Entreq in other parts of my system and I like it? Not a helpful comment.


It wasn’t a comment, it was a question.

Did you see this 3d sound stage via ground control - #12 by ruudvde

Thanks Ruud. I’m testing Entreq ground boxes. I’m demoing a couple connected to my mono amps at the moment and I really love what I’m hearing. That’s why I’m planning to connect other parts of my system, incluso D’Agostino my beloved dCS Vivaldi.

Ok, I already understood that but it was just a tip for an alternative while you are still testing. I have no experience with the Entreq devices (I do with the Shunyata), but I do know how to determine where and which connection you can best use. In the case of the dCS Vivaldi, I have measured that it does not matter whether you connect it to the BNC, RCA or Chassis earth (behind a screw). I prefer the chassis ground but with all devices. Measuring where and then trying it out is of course the best.

Thanks Ruud. Will obviously test the various options. Planning to connect dac via BNC at the moment.
