SuperSonic Component Stabilizers

Review: I find the SuperSonic Stabilizer is not a product for the unadventurous audio coach potato. Just like RFI and vibration components the Shakti Stones, the placement of the SuperSonic Stabilizer is crucial to attain the true benefits from it. Misplacement will cause over damping, sounding dull and lifeless on your audio equipment. I am sure the Stabilizers ideal placement will be different from equipment depending on what�s under the hood of the chassis.

To use it properly I have to move the Stabilizers on the chassis to find the ideal spot. It will indeed sound very differently at each location and your personal bias of what you like will come into play.

But using it correctly the Stabilizers emanates properties of a live music event. The improvements in subtleties are at the edge of each musical note with clean clarity and superb focus. The singers like Diana Krall, Ella, Patricia Barber, etc. have gone through a speech articulation class in all my records. Every word can be identified clearly, with breath, with expressive detail intensity, or like singing next to you. The decay of tailing musical notes just lingers on instruments without being masked.

The reduction of RFI by the SuperSonic Stabilizers is a mind opening experience. The removal of the hidden electronic haze has created the natural experience of hearing music without equipment. The increase spacing silence allows the multiple instruments to exhibit its personal unique dimensional body of ambiance. There is a sculpture physical presence of voice and instrument space. You can hear the different resonating �wood� characteristics of the dueling acoustic guitars. Even tiny chats from the audience in live nightclubs recordings are exposed distinctively. You heard it before but not like now hearing it sitting next to you.

During experimentation I find putting my old Harmonix RS66 isolation disc on top the Stabilizers is very magical. It added holographic openness and addition details from the silent background. New musical truth comes from the SuperSonic Stabilizers, but you will have to find it. The Stabilizers have become essential in my system.

Review: This comment is long overdue. I have literally tried everything to kill chassis resonances but your s.s. stabilizers are the only things that kill resonances without adding any apparent colorations. Music comes through unscathed, free of the added crap that people normally associate as "HiFi." Amazing.

Review: Substituting two Stabilizers for six Eichmann Toppers on my preamp gave a slightly tighter bass and improved transient definition at a much lower overall cost.

I also tried a Stabilizer on my Meridian CD player to my protest that it already bore what the manufacturer describes as a 'non-resonant' glass lid ... The Stabilizers presence does nothing for the players refined aesthetic, so I was really hoping that it wouldnt work but it did, improving bass coherence and overall definition.

Review: Just wanted to let you know the big dots, iso-cups, grungebuster and top weight have transformed my system into a sonic delight. As soon as 'she who must be obeyed' gets over it, I'll be ordering some more (may take a little while)

Review: For the first hour or two, I didn't think they did a thing. Perhaps that was because I didn't know what to listen for. Once I started hearing their effect, I couldn't stop noticing their effect. Depending on where these Stabilizers were placed on my CD player (using two stacked) would make dramatic differences. Some spots would start sounding overdamped, others the bass would get muddy, and still others would have little effect. It took me a while to figure out that very incremental movements of the Stabilizers would effect the sound and finding the best spot for the most recordings took a lot of time (still not sure I've got it best yet, but good enough for now). Hard to describe what it does, but it does smooth the highs and make them more palatable. Provides better image/instrument separation and everything sounds clearer. Removing them is now unthinkable; I hear a loss of refinement when I take them off so now these Stabilizers have become a necessity rather than a mere tweak. I also tried mass loading by placing a weight on top of the Stabilizers. I didn't care for that at all. Killed the dynamics and just made the overall sound unlively. I don't know how these things work, but they do. Truly amazing.

Review: The Stabilizers work really great; I have them on my DAC and transport. They met and exceeded my expectations. They are quite an improvement and an improvement over the grungebuster damping sheets previously used.

Review: The Stabilizers went on top of my DCS P8i SACD player, mass loaded with some 500 g brass weights. The mids and highs are very slightly smoother sounding. No change noted in the lower octaves, but for the price I'm very happy with the results.

Review: Adding supersonic stabilizers to the top of the cd player and amplifier refined the sound even further. The stabilizers give a ridiculous amount of value for the price.

Review: The two SuperSonic Stabilizers are sitting on top of my phono stage which itself rests on three Iso-Cups w/Lampblack Balls. Very nice combination cleaned up a bit of "fuzz" on the vocals and gave a "cleaner" overall presentation. My analog rig is my largest investment and my baby digital is for convenience and practicality not everything comes on an LP!

Review: Very pleased so far with your tube dampers and the iso-cups/balls and stabilizers. The system definately sounds more controlled and natural. A big thanks!
