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.
