One of the most incessant problems that can plague a hifi system is that annoying hum. Noise is triggered when two circuits carrying different amounts of current overlap each other, or when a loop is created by stray magnetic fields generated by transformers in connected equipment. This problem is only magnified when your system is spread between several connected wall outlets throughout your listening room, as many are. The only solution to this problem: separate the circuits so that no overlaps occur by providing a designated ground.
While the easiest way to provide a designated ground for your sound system is achieved by using their QKORE grounding system, homeowners with the ability to install an outdoor ground rod will find Nordosts QLINE Ground Wire an indispensable tool. Utilizing Nordosts patented Micro Mono-Filament technology, combined with extruded FEP insulation, the QLINE is the missing link needed to complete the circuit connecting the QBASE ground post to a designated, external ground rod or grounding box, through its uniquely low resistance path. Proper grounding will transform your system, offering enhancements in 3D imaging as well as lowering the noise floor.
Nordosts QLINE is available in multiple lengths with airtight, waterproof terminations in order to accommodate your specific needs. It is important to recognize, that while installing a designated ground for your hifi system is the most efficient and direct approach to eliminate ground loops and AC hum, there are some states and countries that prohibit the use of a second ground. Please consult a local electrician to ensure that the improvements you make on your sound system remain to code.Features

Nordosts QRT power products are designed to alleviate the impact of poor quality AC power on your sensitive electronics. By controlling ground flow, and limiting RFI and timing errors associated with the AC line, QRT products bring AC power closer to the desired distortion-less condition without limiting the peak current of your electronics.
QRT products are cumulative and their effects are best heard when used as a system. When arranged correctly, the effects include a lower noise floor, increased image depth with tighter focus, wider soundstage, as well as improved overtones, pacing, dynamic range and musical expression.Technical Specifications
