Critical Mass Systems, Inc. focuses on the principles of thermodynamics applicable to High End Audio. High End audio presents a range of challenges broader than those found in other industries where vibration is a barrier to performance. Our mission is to suspend disbelief, meaning; to provide the means to which electronics can make reality come out of your loudspeakers.
From the labor of our efforts came the LS loudspeaker series, the Center Stage 2M series, and most recently, the Center Stage Ultra Series.
Audio Becomes Visual – The Total Immersion Effect
The Total Immersion Effect can be described as a highly articulated acoustic sound field that extends from the back of the soundstage and sometimes wraps around the listener. It is crossing the threshold where audio becomes visual and the listener becomes part of the recording.
Center Stage products are designed to suspend disbelief. You experience something on the order of a 4k hi-rez 3D surround-event. You see the image in space, you hear and see the musical event occur inside the image, and then you hear, see and feel the sensory event spread out around you from the soundstage. Audio becomes visual and you become immersed in the sound field.
Knocking down the “wall” that separates the listener from the musicians requires the electromechanical balance inside the components to reach an ultrafine point of equilibrium and to hold that equilibrium point across 20,000+ Hz in a fluctuating energy field so that the component can remain stable enough to create the Immersion Effect with consistency in the listening space
