MVD Earth Box
Eliminate electrostatic Noise Improve Sound Quality

iEARTH earth box actually works to achieve improved sound performance of your audio system through noise reduction. It's not the type of noise you can detect by putting an ear to a speaker when the music's not playing. Removing the crud caused by electrostatic fields makes music sound more dynamic, more musical and with greater clarity. 

Noise - Think Outside the Box

  • In its broadest definition, noise is any undesired signal

  • Analog signals accumulate noise as they flow through system equipment and cables

  • Once noise is added, it's essentially impossible to remove it without altering or degrading the original signal. Therefore, noise must be prevented along the entire signal path.

  • Signal INTERFACES are generally the danger zone, rather than the equipment itself.

Understanding Noise in Your Audio System

  • Defining Noise: At its core, noise is any unwanted signal that interferes with your audio experience.

  • The Journey of Analog Signals: As analog signals traverse your system's equipment and cables, they pick up noise, accumulating unwanted signals that degrade audio quality.

  • The Challenge of Removing Noise: Once introduced, noise is nearly impossible to remove without changing or diminishing the original signal's integrity. The key is to prevent noise from entering the signal path in the first place.

  • Where Noise Finds Its Way: Often, the most vulnerable points for noise intrusion are signal interfaces, not necessarily the equipment itself.

 

The iEARTH Earth Box plays a crucial role in preserving the purity of your audio system's signal, ensuring that what you hear is as true to the original recording as possible.

 

Types of Signal Noise and Their Effects

1. Digital Noise:

  • Origin: Arises from digital devices and circuits, such as DACs, digital streamers, or computers. Generated by the binary switching operations in digital processing.

  • Effect: Can affect even fully analog devices like tube amplifiers through interconnected cables, leading to less pure sound, reduced clarity, and increased harshness.

2. Analog Noise:

  • Origin: Emanates from electromagnetic interference (EMI) from electronic devices, thermal noise from resistors, and mechanical vibrations.

  • Effect: Adds hiss, hum, or static to audio output, detracting from fidelity in turntables and reducing signal-to-noise ratio in amplifiers.

3. Ground Loop Noise:

  • Origin: Occurs with multiple grounding paths in an audio system, creating loops that induce noise.

  • Effect: Manifests as a low-frequency hum or buzz, problematic in systems with complex interconnections.

4. Video Signal Noise:

  • Origin: Relevant in systems combining audio and video devices, stemming from complex processing in video devices and cables, such as HDMI.

  • Effect: Can degrade audio quality through shared connections and power supplies, introducing interference similar to digital noise.

5. Network Signal Noise:

  • Origin: Generated by network devices and cables, especially in environments with high-frequency data transmission and Wi-Fi signals.

  • Effect: Can introduce jitter and latency in streamed audio content, affecting timing accuracy and leading to a less stable soundstage.

6. Turntable (Phono) System Noise:

  • Origin: Arises from the mechanical nature of turntables and the electrical signal processing in phono preamps. Includes motor noise, belt vibrations, and electrical noise from the cartridge.

  • Effect: Adds pops, clicks, and a background hum to the audio output, potentially overshadowing the nuances of the vinyl playback and reducing the overall warmth and depth of the sound.

Mitigation Strategies

Understanding these noise types underscores the importance of proper system setup and component selection, including cables and grounding solutions like the EarthBox series. Each EarthBox is designed to target specific noise types and pathways, providing a cleaner signal and thus a purer listening experience. For instance, using a grounding box designed for digital devices can help mitigate digital noise affecting an analog amplifier, while a grounding solution for video devices can reduce the impact of video signal noise on audio quality.

In summary, signal noise is a pervasive issue in audio systems, with various types affecting devices differently. By recognizing these noise types and employing targeted solutions, users can significantly enhance their system's sound quality

How iEARTH earth box Works:

  1. Noise Collection: Utilizing a collecting cable or one of the specified iGROUND cables, the iEARTH Grounding Box draws noise from the connected device. This process ensures that noise is intercepted before it can pollute your audio signal.​

  2. Noise Elimination: Once the noise is transferred to the iEARTH, it encounters the grounding box's passive grounding modules—two pieces meticulously designed to neutralize noise instantly. This passive yet powerful mechanism ensures that the audio signal remains pure and unblemished by unwanted interference.

  3. Vibration-Powered Energy: What sets the iEARTH Grounding Box apart is its innovative use of vibration as a source of unlimited energy. At the heart of the iEARTH Grounding Box lies a gold-plated pole, featuring an elastic steel ball at its end. This unique component serves a dual purpose:

    • Static Collection: The steel ball collects static from the surface of the connected device, a common source of audio distortion.

    • Vibration to Energy Conversion: More remarkably, the small steel ball at the pole's end harnesses ambient vibrations. These vibrations are then converted into electrical energy, which powers the grounding modules, ensuring they are always ready to eliminate noise.

 

This sophisticated design not only enhances the audio quality by removing noise but also does so in an energy-efficient manner, utilizing the natural vibrations present in every environment.

 

Experience Unparalleled Audio Clarity

 

With the iEARTH Grounding Box, listeners can enjoy their music and audio content with an unprecedented level of clarity and depth. By effectively trapping and eliminating noise and utilizing an innovative, vibration-powered mechanism, the iEARTH Grounding Box stands as a testament to INCRECABLE's commitment to audio excellence.

Believe in again breakthrough!  Refer to the rich experience and application research from our grounding system, iEARTH makes it perfect.

The iEARTH box is made from a solid carved aluminum body with two substantial solid grounding modules top with 4 receptacles for linking up grounding system with the noise pickup pole. Although this is a small device, it is quite substantial in weight and feel.  New Earth Box, MVD-EARTH, is based on the same technology found in iGROUND cable and iBLOCK MVD.

The improvement in sound for Stream Player, Media Players, SACD/CD Players, DACs, LP turntable system, Speaker system, AV home theater system, projector, TV set and just about all other audio equipment hooked up with MVD-EARTH is quite significant sounding. The soundstage, bass, and definition of instruments and voices were enhanced.
