Stillpoints

DAMPING VS ISOLATING

Damping: a decrease in the amplitude of an oscillation as a result of energy being drained from the system to overcome frictional or resistive forces.

Isolation: The act of isolating. The quality or condition of being isolated.

Isolate: to cause to be alone or apart

If you have a device that has direct contact from top to bottom, (12 o’clock to 6 o’clock) like single bearing devices, no matter what the materials used, it is damping -- not isolating.

True isolation does not have a direct path between surfaces. Stillpoints patented technology stacks bearings such that there is no direct contact between the component and the surface upon which it rests.

Human hearing is generally considered to be 20Hz-20kHz. With electronics, Stillpoints' technology effectively functions over 20kHz. Typical damping products operate below 20kHz; thus shifting tonality. Despite this tonal shift, Stillpoints can easily be used with damping products to great success.

The materials used in Stillpoints are ceramics and stainless steel. They will last many lifetimes. What other product, from any industry, has the same permanence?

After a very short break-in period, the Stillpoints filter performs without change or degradation.

Considering the amount of performance and pleasure derived from a Stillpoint over time they are a unique bargain.

We have been using Stillpoints for over 10 years at Choice Audio. We feel very strongly that anyone who is really trying to get the most of of their system should have a set of Stillpoints under their speakers. It is an immediate improvement in the sound. Improved bass, deeper bass, tighter bass, more defined bass with more detail from the upper harmonics coming to vision. Images are more defined, space between notes is blacker. Basically you are hearing more of the recording in a very good way.
