• Critical Mass Systems Announces the MK3 versions of the MAXXUM, Black Diamond, Black Platinum and Black Sapphire filter systems, available now! The MK3 makes our incredible product even better by giving your components a greater emotional expression and effortless dynamic range. These improvements lowers the noise floor and improves low-level ambience. The MK3 versions will help bring superior timber, natural highs, enricher mid-range and tighter, deepened bass to your music. Constructed from proprietary internal vibration materials, our unique Dual Zone Damping System helps the filters manage vibration so that the signal processed by the electronics and analog devices sounds life-like and real when it the comes out of the loudspeakers. The filters and rack architecture operate together to mitigate vibration in the floor, the rack, the shelf and the component at the same time. The filter system works at its optimal level of performance with both very light and very heavy components without any adjustment to improve the sound of both digital and analog sound The filters come with discs for placing under the feet of the component. This protects the surface of the filter and improves the energy transfer between the component and the rack system.
  • A 4-tier wooden rack. Quarter sawn Sapele (an African hardwood belonging in the mahogany family) makes up this structurally sound and aesthetically pleasing rack. A finish of clear satin seals the woodwork. The connective elements are constructed of metal milled from billet 6061 T651 aluminum.
  • The ultimate in performance, MAXXUM is designed to provide the optimum listening experience. Constructed from proprietary internal vibration materials, our unique Dual Zone Damping System helps the filters manage vibration so that the signal processed by the electronics and analog devices sounds life-like and from the loudspeakers. The filters and rack architecture operate together to mitigate vibration in the floor, the rack, the shelf and the component at the same time. Originally developed ground-up for turntables (usually the most vibration-sensitive component of the audio system) it is our best vibration management system, and the precision design and engineering is so precise that it is exceptional with every other component in the audio system.
  • Center Stage (1.5, 1.0, .80)

    There were several objectives behind the development of Center Stage2M. Firstly, we wanted to build upon the proven approach developed for the LS (loudspeaker) series of Center Stage2 products. Secondly, each new Center Stage2M product had to be a clear audible improvement over its current facing Center Stage2 relative. In other words, compared to the current CS20.8, CS2 1.0 and CS2 1.5, each new Center Stage2M had to be greatly improved across the audible spectrum. Finally, and most important, we wanted the performance improvement of each new Center Stage2M product to be so great, it leapfrogged its bigger brother in the current CS2 line up. In better words, the Center Stage2M 0.8 had to be better than the CS2 1.0. The Center Stage2M 1.0 had to be better than the CS2 1.5 and the Center Stage2M 1.5 had to set a new standard for audio footer performance in the industry.
  • The Stillpoints Aperture is the only acoustical product that will give you both absorption and diffusion at the first reflection points of a system. And you want both!
    • The Aperture’s unique trapping system captures an area of waveform much broader than its small surface area would suggest.
    • The Aperture can be used to trap waveforms either facing the wall or, facing away from the wall.
    • The Aperture effectively increases soundstage width and depth. This is especially true for smaller rooms. (See the Michael Fremer review in Stereophile, Feb 2016.)
    • The Aperture will increase the dimensional perspective of the image structure.
    • The Aperture focuses music and voice without room boundary.
    The Stillpoints Aperture will NOT:
    • Decrease or limit the dynamics of the system.
    • Diminish the power of the bass attack.
    • Unevenly control one frequency over another. (This is often the case with traditional room treatments)
    Choose from three “STANDARD” natural wood frame species: Oak, Cherry, & Walnut.
  • The Ultra 6 V2 is the first Ultra product to use opposing technology pockets. Order the Ultra 6 V2 with an Ultra Base which provides an additional 20% to 25% in performance. Order without the Ultra Base if used in an ESS rack or with a Component Stand.
  • The Ultra II V2 follows the legacy of the original Ultra 6, incorporating the use of technology pockets on opposing sides of the isolator. The Ultra II V2 is the first product to support the Version 2 filter and it is the only product that was built using just the Version 2 filter. There is no Version 1 Ultra II. It is available in these configurations.
  • The standard Ultra Mini V2 consists of three primary elements: body, base, and filter. The narrow tapered Mini Body houses the V2 technology filter. The Mini Base allows for leveling when four are used under one component. The standard thread size is an 8/32” which will fit some equipment with out the Base. The Ultra Mini V2 is available with 1/4-20 male threads to be used in the Stillpoints Component Stand, ESS X and Rail Grids. Other sizes are available by special order.
  • The LPI V2 slips over the spindle of your turntable and rests on the label portion of the LP. This our patented isolation filter absorbs the micro vibrations that are created by the stylus skating in the grooves. If left un-intercepted, the vibrations flow past the spindle and directly back to the cartridge as the record rotates. The LPI V2 dramatically increases the sound stage size and focus. Lowering the noise floor at the source exposes the most minute detail of location and presence greatly adding realism and emotional expression to the listening experience.
  • The sCLK-OCX10 is a master clock generator that produces a high purity 10 MHz clock signal. In digital audio devices, the clock signal acts as the heart of the product, a higher purity clock brings more accurate and better sound quality. However, the higher purity clocks also requires higher costs, therefore, a high-purity 10MHz clock, like a master clock, is not installed inside of the audio device but connected to the internal clock and synchronized by a master clock as the way to improve sound quality. The sCLK-OCX10 is a specially designed product for high end audio equipment which brings all the benefits of master clocks that have been used primarily in recording studios and high performance audio. It could be the paramount digital device for audiophiles who want the best sound quality. It can be used with  devices equipped with a BNC connector for their master clock input. For SOtM products, 10MHz master clock input connectors can be optionally added to products with the sCLK-EX installed such as the sMS-1000SQ, the sMS-200ultra,  and the tX-USBultra can be used with the sCLK-OCX10.
  • The resolution, textures, transparency and expression of sound is greatly affected by how and what power is supplied to your audio devices. Which means a power supply unit affects the sound quality to the entire audio system, and should never be considered “just a power supply unit.” The sPS-500 is an audio power supply designed specifically for high performance audio. It is built to eliminate noise generated by powered devices as well as to remove noise coming from an AC power source. Using SOtM’s unique technologies for noise cancellation and sound enhancement, and high quality audio components that are already proven in sound quality, you will hear superior sound with the well-designed sPS-500.
