"Power and Grounding for Audio and Video Systems"
'A White Paper for the Real World – International Version'
Jim Brown
Audio Systems Group, Inc.

Considerable confusion seems to surround power and grounding for audio and audio/
video systems. This “White Paper” is an attempt to cut through the confusion and
set out a collection of good engineering practice that is both safe and effective while not
requiring specialized or costly measures to avoid hum, buzz, noise, or RF interference.
The author believes that the recommendations and practices outlined herein are safe,
and that they conform to building codes in most of the world.

Jensen put together a great book also years back . Its could be hard to find these days, but is about the size of a phone book for a big city . Packed full of information on grounding,shielding , transformers , power related issues . I found it to be one of the most useful pieces ever . my 2 cents worth

Kevin Graf:
