    I'd bet carbon and piezo minerals are in the box like the others.

    These high priced grounding boxes are ridiculous, I need to make my own and sell them for reasonable prices like my cables. And they will have proper ground cables.
    Agree. DO IT!

    I'm glad that you have has good luck with potentially poorly designed equipment.
    But I still wouldn't connect an insulated RCA jack to an AC power Safety Ground.
    The check for poor designs is the John Windt 'Hummer Tester'.
