    When a system contains two or more pieces of equipment that are grounded, whether via power cords or other ground connections, a “ground loop” will likely be formed. (See Figure 1, below.) Although ground loops often involve power line safety ground connections, disabling them is both highly dangerous and illegal. However, devices called “ground isolators” can be inserted in the signal path to break the loop safely. This approach attacks the problem at its fundamental roots, while tampering with safety… View this story

      It is generally accepted that a large loudspeaker power rating is a sign of quality and something to be desired. It may be the performance metric that has the greatest influence on the consumer’s buying decision. A closer look reveals that it is far less significant than other metrics regarding the performance of the loudspeaker. The Basics The power rating of an amplifier describes its ability to do work on a load – like moving a loudspeaker. Generally, the… View this story
