CAD - GC1 Ground Control

Computer Audio Design Reveal The CG1 Ground Control
T he Computer Audio Design or CAD CG1 Ground Control (£1,400 "ish" price hasn't been set in stone yet) is a background noise reducer that results in less noise in your HiFi. With less noise there’s more detail and ultimately a better sound quality heard through your speakers/headphones. Unlike dedicated power supplies, which also reduce the background noise level, the Ground Control is not connected to the mains but is connected to spare sockets on your HiFi or a Computer USB slot. The prime function of the Ground Control is to lower the background noise level by reducing high frequency noise on the signal ground plane and to dissipate this noise as heat.
