Question Poweramp starground and mains earth

Hello!

Maybe this topic have been up before but i couldent find any when searched.

Should the mains earth and amp starground be connected to one point on the chassis or should they be separated and connected to two different places on the chassis ?

That thing uses a external ps and my poweramp is not a gainclone. Nevermind iŽll connect all ps grounds including mains gnd to one point on the chassis, and tie up all signal grounds to a starground and run a thin wire to the ps ground star.

Are you using a metal case, with each ground, tied to the case, or are they isolated?

I gonna have separate stargrounds for power and signal but only one connection to the chassis, the power gnd, and a wire from the signal gnd to the power gnd.

So nevermind this thread, i must have had a brainfart when posting it
