The Entreq Minimus has a single dedicated ground point. Its capacity is generally limited to either 1 or 2 dedicated ground cables to ground your equipment, or for the use with Entreq signal cables. This can be with the digital, USB, analogue or speaker cables.
Note : Where possible please ground digital & analogue cables to seperate ground points.
". . .food for thought in a general sense, a no-brainer as an audio upgrade." - Roy Gregory

"In my (very) humble opinion that's exactly what they are, utterly amazing. Like I said before they are the single most important upgrade I have carried out in my system." - Devialet Forum.
Entreq believe that grounding is one of the key essentials in acquiring excellent sound quality in any hifi system, but conditions vary greatly from place to place. Firstly, it depends on conditions in the ground where the soil takes place, partly on the amount of pollution discharged into the underground network.
Their ongoing research as well as extensive listening tests have proven conclusively that stable effective grounding can eliminate a multitude of noise, field effect & unwanted magnetic properties. After many years of research the team at Entreq released there own dedicated range of ground boxes & associated grounding cables. Each ground box offers specific levels of grounding, each relevant to the system or application required. Both the Minimus & Silver Minimus offer a single reference ground point only. This generally allows approximately two ground cables to be attached to a single box at any one time. The Silver Minimus offers a more effective ground point than the standard Minimus, with a lower noise floor being heard in the system.
Ground cables sold separately.
Note: Entreq Minimus can not replace protective ground.

When I purchased this product I was initially slightly dubious and was even wondering whether it would make any audible difference at all. Suffice to say that in combination with the Eartha Konstantin cable, it improves the focus, imagining and smoothness of the sound and is particularly well-suited to improving the sound of orchestral works (especially the violin sections) - something that is very important to me.
The one thing I would suggest with Entreq products is not to assume the more expensive products will provide a better result, much in the same way that turntable cartridge manufacturers often produce several grades of model in a particular line, with the differences in the top end models of that line being as much about "voicing" as they are overall quality.
These grounding boxes are probably something best considered once the actual mains power supply itself has been fully sorted (i.e power conditioner or at the very "worst" an audiophile calibre power board). Without attending to these items first, the Entreq boxes may cause the rest of the system to become too revealing, only to magnify the inherent problems with the mains supply coming out of the wall.
In terms of overall impressions, the combination of this box and cable wrought a similar improvement to what I have heard in the past of new production tubes versus well-regarded, classic NOS ones or improving the mains supply by way of a high quality power board (my setup uses a Gigawatt PF1 also bought from Krispy).
Definitely well worth the money. So much so I ended up buying two instead of the one I had originally planned to buy!
