I spend a couple of minutes listening to the difference; with and without grounding unit.  Different quite significant when playing vocal but guess the price is also significant......

I have not heard the entreq grounding boxes before, I would think equal match or slightly edge out the Telos grounding box, but again I heard only with vocal part.

The phono cable is so heavy that the turntable is in danger of being pulled backward so the cable had to be twisted in order to rest it's weight on the platform below the turntable.

Very very bad. Stressing the cable will change its timbral reproduction characteristics.

Interesting, this is a first!… Basically a DSD-based equivalent of Meridian’s “Digital Active Speakers” or Linn’s “Exakt”  ;)

ESTELON LAUNCHES GROUNDBREAKING DIGITAL AUDIO TECHNOLOGY WITH PREVIEW OF WORLD’S FIRST HIGH-END INTELLIGENT SPEAKERS – ESTELON LYNX

The Estelon Intelligent Audio technology facilitates wireless transmission of top-quality audio without any additional equipment. The corner stone of Estelon Intelligent Audio is its unique signal chain that uses DSD bit-stream to directly drive each loudspeaker without any signal conversion or further processing. This approach is the pure audiophile equivalent of classic “as short as possible” signal chain, delivering an uncompromised precise soundstage.


The technology brief is even more interesting..

http://estelon.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/IntelligentAudioBrief-1.pdf

Quote
Estelon LYNX speakers are essentially a marriage of all the best technology in the field of digital audio we could imagine. The core of the audio is HQPlayer from Signalyst what works as a DSD rendering engine, converting everything to a DSD64 stream. An Integrated Roon streaming player acts as a user interface for playback from NAS or Tidal streaming service.
