The Olympus Tellus is the current flagship ground box and is the absolute pinnacle of what is possible with grounding your system.
The Olympus Tellus has 6 outlets on silver binding posts and 1 isolated copper binding post which can be used to make a direct connection to protective ground, this dedicated terminal uses a specific cable (included with the Olympus Tellus) and simply connects to a spare wall mains outlet, the cable has an earth pin which grounds your mains to the Olympus Tellus.
If you look at the rear panel you can see the 6 outlets are laid out in a V shape – this is to reduce the effect of crosstalk so if you are grounding both components and cables you keep them separate to minimise noise transfer. By making this connection recordings you know really well will have new details jumping out you’ve never heard before. It’s an incredibly effective thing to do and will benefit any system. Please do not underestimate the benefit an Olympus Ten will bring to your system.
The sonic signature of the Olympus Tellus is the same as the Olympus Ten, Olympus Minimus and Poseidon, it just carries more capacity for much bigger systems. Replace the standard wooden binding posts on the back of a Olympus Tellus with either an Everest or K2 binding post and you will dramatically improve its performance, increasing the capacity.
