What is involved in grounding a stereo receiver?

What should the wiring look like, and what are the steps involved in doing this?

Unplug your receiver.. Split a wire and attach one of the splits to the receiver where you will see the text, "ground" or something similar. Attach the other end to something metal such as a pipe that goes into the ground. Secure with electrical tape. Plug in.

(1) Choose an adequate ground. If not available, then the household metal that attaches directly into the ground can. (2) Get a single 16 gauge wire. (3) Strip both ends of the wire using a stripping tool. (4) Connect one end to the receiver and the other to the ground.

Your speaker should have two ports in the back of it with two wires coming out, one of these wires should be gray and the other one should be red. Although sometimes these cords are yellow and red. What you want to do is have both cords feeding into a three prong plug, then you're good to go.

Attach a wire on the ground terminal and run it to a cold water pipe. Wrap it around the pipe. You should use a 16 gauge wire.

looking on the back there should be a grounding point, simply run a wire from there (any decent size wire should do) to a price of metal on your furniture.
