    Default Grounding boxes?

    Hi.

    Could anyone give me any idea if these voodoo-like boxes actually work?

    I ask because a friend of mine in Belgium has just bought some Entreq boxes and he says they really do make a positive difference. He's certainly not one to make stuff up, so... do they work?

    The more I look on the net about the 'grounding box' the more I'm intrigued.

    I do love my crystals and I do believe they can be used to comfort people. I have known this to be true.

    Entreq grounding boxes seem to be the the most famous manufacturer but other manufactures are now stepping in with positive results from users.

    I know some like them, but don't personally think I could post anything polite about the idea.

    I'm very sceptical about these boxes filled with what looks like charcoal with a piece of wire coming out of it

    And how much do they cost

    I think it is one of those things you have to try for yourself, and see if it makes any difference.

    Hmmmm, I remember fetching up this very topic years ago and as always we had those who believed and those that didn't. Like everything else in this hobby, use YOUR OWN ears .

    The price of the Entreq boxes is rather high, but they certainly work amazingly well, and with immediate apparency in A/B tests I’ve heard.

    There’s a lot to get sorted before that stage though, and it’s certainly a case of ‘money to burn’ stature.

    I'm sure that this was discussed extensively on this forum a few months ago.

    The trouble with using your own ears is that we cannot remove placebo effects unless DB tests are involved.
