Synergistic Research Tranquility Carbon

A field generator and ground plane that conditions electromagnetic fields within adjacent electronics to lower your system’s noise floor.

Condition signal from within

Introducing Tranquility Base Carbon, the first all-new Tranquility Base in over a decade. We started with a new chassis machined from a solid billet of aircraft aluminum for a 50% slimmer and 80% more rigid chassis. We then experimented with new laminates and arrived at carbon fiber for its superior response to mechanical and airborne vibrations. We then applied our most advanced EM Cell technology directly transferred from our Galileo SX PowerCell. Finally, its internal UEF Technology was transferred from our new state-of-the-art SRX cable loom. The net result is a thinner and more rigid Tranquility Base with a lower noise floor from which springs improved dynamics and soundstaging combined with smoother, more extended high frequencies.

Condition at the source

Tranquility Base history. Shortly after launching our first PowerCell line conditioner, our lead designer began work on a new application for his then new patent-pending EM Cell technology. It was early 2010, and Ted had the idea for an Electromagnetic Cell Field-Effect Conditioner capable of conditioning signal inside a component. First, we developed several flat EM Cells for placement below components running tests on multiple variants until we perfected an EM Cell capable of improving any component. We then experimented with different laminates engineered to cancel mechanical vibrations selecting the option that created the best sound quality. The first Tranquility Base was launched at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in late 2012. Three years later, we refreshed the Tranquility Base lineup in 2015 with the addition of UEF Technology. We have been building Tranquility Bases continuously since 2012 with minor running improvements along the way, but with no major overhaul or change to the fundamental design for the past decade, until now.

One set MiG 3.0 included

The new MiG 3.0 delivers an increased sense of space in the sound field plus improvements in low-frequency control and extension with high-frequency air and detail. All this with greatly enhanced resolution that is never fatiguing, plus a wall-to-wall holographic soundstage, including a sense of the performance enveloping your listening position. Listening notes: comparing MiG’s to isolation footers based on dampening principles, you hear more extended dynamic range and spatial cues where dampened footers tend to have a flatter sound and lack dynamic extension. Isolation footers based primarily on draining mechanical vibration away from the component tend to sound bright with less sound stage layering and mid-range warmth when compared to MiG’s. Lastly, if you have a full suite of SR Tech, your best possible footers will likely be MiG’s, as they work on similar principles and have a similar house sound to SR cables, power products, and acoustic treatments.
