Default Star Ground technique

I have done a search both in the forum and web for star ground method. The information given are bit confusing and contradictory. Can some guru in the forum give a clear account on the correct method with a block diagram?

In my main system the signal ground is a separate ground isolated by 10R. Where shall I connect the signal ground? Where and when does one need to put Zobel isolators in ground connection.

Have a look at this page (scroll down a bit), where I show a schematic of the grounding scheme I used for a chipamp with separate PSU. It is absolutely silent.

No statement here.
