IMPORTANT: GROUNDING LEADS ARE NOT INCLUDED WITH THE PRODUCT ON THIS PAGE. AFTER YOU HAVE ADDED YOUR GROUNDING BLOCK TO YOUR CART, YOU WILL NEED TO ALSO ADD YOUR REQUIRED GROUNDING LEADS HERE.
The principle of grounding blocks has now become well accepted in the hifi industry. Stray RFI on grounds can be drained away and absorbed, often bringing a very worthwhile improvement in performance. The Vertex Classic Picos do this, but they bring an extra dimension – they also drain and absorb acoustic vibration.
- Two-way Pico Component Grounding Block. Two separate grounding inputs (RCA) each with enhanced acoustic labyrinth and passive RFI/EMI absorption. Dimensions 220mm x 105mm x 45mm, silver anodised finish.
- Six-way Pico Component Grounding Block, Six separate grounding inputs (RCA) each with enhanced acoustic labyrinth and passive RFI/EMI absorption. Dimensions 360mm x 132mm x 120mm (LWH), silver or gunmetal anodised finish.

Non-EU countries will have zero sales tax. Note that customs authorities in non-EU countries may charge you direct an additional import duty upon arrival of your goods in the destination country.
Payment Process, Cooling-off Period, Cancellation and Returns:
We do not process your payment until we have spoken with you to check you order is correct and to protect both parties from fraudulent card transactions. You then have a cooling-off period of 14 days when you can cancel your order with a full refund. After 14 days the order enters our build-process and cannot be cancelled free of charge – our cancellation policy applies, with a refund minus 20% cancellation fee. You also have a 60-day returns period from the date you order is delivered with a 20% restocking fee and further deductions if the item is not in perfect condition.
Build Process, Packaging and Delivery:
Quiescent products are hand-built to order. Many of our techniques and processes are time-consuming and must be scheduled in a sequential manner, so during this time Quiescent will email you every Friday with progress updates. Once your order has passed quality assurance, we will contact you to arrange a suitable delivery date. All larger products are shipped in a purpose-built flight case that you should retain should you need to move or ship the item again in the future.
In the unlikely event that a Quiescent product fails to function perfectly, you will be able to return the item to us for repair under warranty using the process described in our Lifetime Support Agreement (LSA). The LSA (inc warranty) is transferable should you sell the item later; simply inform us of the new owner’s details so we can update our records.
