Component Grounding

Just wondering if anyone knows about the (potentially) damaging ground loops affecting your audio system. And if they are, what are they doing about it ? Is anyone testing for lowest ground potential ?

I use 'star grounding' and have been very happy with it.

It made an audible difference in low level noise.

Re: Component Grounding

What about listener grounding.

Is a single malt drinker more grounded than a pinot noir ?

What about floating the ground and which type of pot is best for that ?

grounding

I found that by attaching a extra ground to my TT plinth, I was able to reduce phono noise.So yes I have two phono grounds: one from the tonearm and the other from the plinth.
