Ok, I think I found the answer myself by looking at the description of the Groundhog accessory on the Ifi website.

 

You do require a grounded outlet to have any benefit of the 4mm ground connector on the iPurifier. The purpose of the connector seems to be to make it possible to ground equipment with no groundplug on the mains connector.

ifi, 

 

i already have  2 groundhog and i notice there's a groundhog+ that is released to include a banana/rca cable for ac ipurifier.

Hey guys, we've published a series of videos on our AC iPurifier over on our You Tube channel.

 

Highlights here!

 

Positioning and placement of the AC iPurifier

 

Polarity and ground detection of the AC iPurifier

I've been using mine for at least a couple of months now. On tube gear, it seems to make zero difference. On solid state gear though, there is a noticeable difference. I am already using power conditioners, but when I plug into the outlet above the existing power conditioner cord, the vocals of the music get elevated and pushed forward in the mix. Imagine a virtual space where the mix is, and the vocals seem to be pushed out about 3-4 inches from the rest of the mix and sweetened just a touch. It's really nice. I've replicated this on powered studio monitors (Adams) and also Marantz gear. Thinking about buying another one soon.

It actually is. It can be used to create a supplementary ground/earth connection for audio systems where there is no ground/earth present. The supplementary ground/earth connection is ‘smart’ as it will NOT introduce a ground loop EVEN if the system is already earthed (as more than one earth also creates a ground loop).

 

Else where on AS with switching power supply it is recommended to connect the smps DC zero output to AC ground. This should reduce noise from the smps. Can I use the ground input of the AC Purifier for this?
