Synergistic Research Tranquility POD
To use, place a single Tranquility POD under or on top of each component you wish to affect and let the Tranquility POD’s internal Electromagnetic Cell and Ground Plane technology interact with your component’s EM fields for a dramatic improvement in musical performance. Subjectively this translates into increased dynamic headroom with a lower noise-floor, so you experience a true-to-life soundstage, improved bass extension and control, and cleaner and more extended high frequencies, all without a hint of glare or brightness. Even if you have made a significant investment in racks and isolation, or you can’t fit large platforms in your home, or perhaps you want a dramatic system upgrade, Tranquility PODs will deliver, guaranteed - otherwise you get your money back!
110V MSRP $749

Tranquility POD is a field generator hand-built in Synergistic Research's California factory consisting of an Active EM Cell with UEF Tech and Graphene. It works by conditioning signal through inductive coupling when the POD is placed under or on top of audio components to cancel distortion and this translates into clearer sound with a lower perceived noise floor. Tranquility PODs also include a Ground Plane to reduce ground noise revealing information and spacial cues you’ve been missing. Simply place Tranquility PODs on top of or beneath the components you wish to transform. During your in-home audition period you may want to experiment with different placements on top of or beneath a component and listen for the option that takes your system to the next level.

"...like most audiophiles, I’m a price sensitive kind of guy and as a reviewer I try and get a handle on a product before I know its actual price. I had a vague recollection that the new Tranquility Pod was about $2000 and even at that price it seemed to be a good value, elevating my $2000 DAC to what I’ve heard at $6000 and above. In some cases, much above. In my heart, I was hoping it would be more like $1000. When the suspense became unbearable, I was stunned to learn it was only $749. It worked best with my DAC and its separate power supply, but only after discovering it worked much better when placed on top of my particular DAC. The success of the Pod is dependent upon the particular piece of equipment and where it is positioned. You have to play with it a bit, but when it works, it really works! Most impressive was a newfound presence it brought to my system. Not the presence brought by a bump to the upper midrange, but a presence that extends the performances through the plane of the speakers into the space between the speakers and the listener. The Pods bring the experience much closer to what we hear in live performances in addition to the anticipated benefits of increased resolution and improved soundstaging..." Review forthcoming
