Synergistic Research Tranquility POD Carbon
Introducing the Tranquility Pod Carbon, an evolution of the original Tranquility Pod with advanced technologies initially developed for SR's Tranquility Base Carbon, plus a new UEF compound first developed for the Master Fuse and 2023 Limited Edition Galileo PowerCell line conditioners. Tranquility Pod Carbon conditions signal while it’s still in your system, just like the full-sized Tranquility Base Carbon but in a smaller, more flexible platform. Simply place Tranquility Pod Carbon above or below a component and its patented Active Electromagnetic Cell and Ground Plane conditions fields within adjacent electronics to lower your system’s noise floor.
In addition, the Tranquility Pod Carbon features a sleek billet aluminum chassis with a carbon fiber lid and carbon fiber performance footers designed to contour airborne vibrations created by your stereo speakers for improved sound clarity when compared to the original Tranquility Pod. These advanced materials are not just for show, they provide superior resonance control and sound characteristics that enhance the overall performance of your stereo. Finally, each Tranquility Pod Carbon is treated with the SRX Long Duration High Voltage Conditioning Process for improved holographic realism and increased detail without listening fatigue.
At the source.
The Tranquility Pod is a field generator hand-built in SR's California factory consisting of an Active EM Cell with UEF Tech and Graphene and Ground Plane technology. Just place a single Tranquility Pod Carbon under or on top of each component you wish to elevate, the result is a dramatic improvement in musical performance with increased dynamic headroom, lower noise-floor, improved bass extension and control, and cleaner and more extended high frequencies, all without a hint of glare or brightness. If you’ve invested in racks and isolation or have limited space for large platforms, the Tranquility Pod Carbon is the perfect solution. And with our risk-free in-home audition program, you can experience the amazing sound quality for yourself.

Review of the predecessor Tranquility Pod.

"...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..." CHECK OUT the entire review
