Hello lalitk ....and thank you and I hope all is well. I tried to contact Mike Lavigne in the past but no response as I am sure that he is busy as we all seem to be these days. I would appreciate his response as well to see if there would be a sonic improvement as I am hoping or confident there will be if I go that path. Your Entreq products from other I talked to, are also very good at grounding a system.
sorry if i did not respond to your previous question. sometimes questions do stack up and i lose track....or i get a little unstuck and behind. i enjoy answering, so it’s not a bother to me.
to answer your Tripoint question; for sure "what" Tripoint does, has the greatest effect on sources, particularly solid state sources and preamps. i have a Troy Sig and an Elite (both non NG). my Troy Sig is on my darTZeel amp mono blocks and speakers. my Elite is on my sources.
so put your best Tripoint device and best Tripoint cables on your most significant source gear. #1--preamp, #2--dac, #3---phono.
not had the ’NG’ level Tripoint in my system...yet. congrats if you can snag one.
Good morning Mike - and no problem and I hope all is well. It did take me awhile to catch on to TriPoint Grounding stations but what a difference they make. I have the Troy Signature as I have noted abut I did upgrade the original grounding cables that came with the Troy and that also made a big difference. I was wondering about using two different types of Miguel's grounding stations in my system on what that would do. The Troy added a nice smoothness / musicality to my system but Miguel is is telling me that his new line brings out more musicality but also allows your system to dig deeper into the recording and bring out more detail. So, you currently use two of his grounding stations , what do you think ? Thank you in advance.
I have noticed that grounding boxes do not seem to get much attention on Audiogon and actually in the USA. Check out "What's Best" Forum they seem to get a lot of attention there.
I own a Silver Tellus Entreq box, and I have made a few DIY versions that I believe far exceed what the Entreq unit does.
The Tripoint is on my future list, but boy are they costly and they don't seem to be available used. Plus, I'm not sure if there is even a USA dealer.
in the USA mostly you deal with Miguel directly.
i also own a number of Entreq boxes and they have their place in the big picture. in my system i use the Tripoint as the main signal path chassis grounding. and with Tripoint the better cables make significant differences. i would say Tripoint’s influence is relative to their price difference. too bad it works that way, but that is my experience.
where the Entreq takes my system to a higher level is on my separate bass towers. i have the Poseidon and 3 Silver Minimus’s on my two bass towers and it does make my bass more sexy and dimensional. love it there.
the newest Entreq appears to go to a higher level and is more expensive, i have no experience with it.
The latest ground power cable from Tripoint Audio.
The holy grail in music playback.
I’m writing this because one of my customers is being attacked in the whatsbestforum, from a closed minded hater. Yes this new Tripoint power cable is the single biggest audible difference I’ve ever heard in my lifetime and this includes the many source components, speakers, and different rooms I’ve experienced in the last 35 years. Those who know my listening skills, know I do not bluff. The haters will ask for a technical explanation to try to discredit my thoughts, I will not disclose my techniques or bother with them. There are a group of haters that think they are experts and believe these grounding components are nothing but adding unwanted distortions and flavors back to music presentation, in other words altering the accuracy of the music itself. While this might be correct with many other grounding solutions and other cables. This is not the case with this extreme cable solution. Yes, this is the new benchmark in high frequency noise removal in the music. The Holly grail to my ears of what is possible in music realism. Finally the bass foundation fullness and rhythmic harmonies are restored in full body density. It will be hard to understand this concept without experiencing it for the first time ever. The so called experts opinions of different formats and equipment are worthless under these new conditions. I will get a lot of heat from non believers from my conclusions, I really do not care. Hearing is believing. If any of you know my customer go experience it for yourself. Bravo Rudolf!! You have the last laugh with your wonderful system. Yes, the Tidal La Assoluta speaker masterpiece finally gets to sparkle. Water!!! Who knew music could be so pure.
