Whether draining a shield or preventing hum, a ground wire — like all wire — is an RF antenna. AudioQuest GroundGoodys are the only solutions that don’t add RF noise while grounding turntables, ground boxes, subwoofers, powered speakers, and more.
The often abused “New and Improved” accolade was never truer than with our totally revised GroundGoodys — and so new names were required.
Like Saturn and Jupiter GroundGoodys before them, ThunderBird and Dragon GroundGoodys use premium conductor materials, which are controlled for direction and cold-welded to Direct-Silver Plated #10 size spade lugs.
While Saturn used Perfect-Surface Copper+ conductor metal, ThunderBird steps up to Solid 6% silver, significantly enhancing its ability to efficiently dissipate RF noise. Dragon continues with Jupiter’s best-there-is Solid Perfect-Surface Silver (PSS).
The most important news is that our strongest Noise-Dissipation technology, the patented RF/ND-Tech that distinguishes AQ’s Level 8 Noise-Dissipation, dissipates and cancels most induced RF Noise.
ThunderBird and Dragon GroundGoodys can be combined with nearly any analog interconnect cable to create a low-distortion phono cable. The exceptions are AQ’s ZERO-Tech interconnects: The Mythical Horses (Black Beauty, Pegasus) and Mythical Creatures (ThunderBird, FireBird, Dragon) are not compatible with phono cartridges.
