iFi Audio GND Defender - Intelligent Ground-Loop Eliminator

  • EMI shielding is retained
  • Surge overload rating of 220A
  • Maximum rating >10A, continuous current rating 7A
  • Handles all voltages around the world from 90-240V
  • Flame resistant IEC socket/connector/chassis
  • Fireproof polymers UL94-V0
  • Manufacturer warranty: 12 months
  • iFi Audio GND Defender

    The optimum configuration for each system is one Ground/Earth for the whole system. If a system has multiple Grounds/Earths, then it often creates unwanted ground loops. These systems will then have an annoying low-frequency hum emitted from the speakers.

    Current solutions either jeopardise both safety and EMI shielding (e.g. cheater plug), or EMI shielding. And most are single country uses only. The GND Defender in the correct way, intelligently detects a ground loop and will cut the ground for that component.

    Ground control to Major components.

    AI ground detection

    With a GND Defender at the IEC power input, it will intelligently detect and remove the ground loop at the component.

    Behind this, the GND Defender.

    Intelligently breaks DC ground loops to eliminate ground loop hum. EMI shielding is retained. Equipment Safety is unaffected (not a ground lift – so maintains equipment safety ground). If multiple ground loops exist, more than one GND Defender may be required.

    Battleship build

    The GND Defender is not only at the cutting-edge in terms of technology but also safety with high-performance glass passivated semiconductor, High Case Dielectric Strength of 1500VRMS UL Listed X7R Capacitor, and high-temperature stability.

    Worldwide Usage

    Surge overload rating of 220A, with a maximum rating of less than 10A, continuous current rating 7A, it handles all voltages around the world from 90-240V.
