Review: The bang for the buck on this product is insane. Aside from the Stillpoint RFI paper, I can't think of anything that touches it.

Review: I stop listening to all my CD collections thru my dedicated Headphone system due to sibilance and harshness on some recording. With the use of Black Hole CD Mat, now I'm enjoying the music from my high resolution headphone system. All the harshness and sibilance are gone, more details and the bass is awesome! This is a great product if you are listening to headphone. Thanks Steve for the great product!

Review: This is the best CD mat on the market as I've tried them all and this is the only one my Wadia puts up with disk after disk. The other mats cause a horrible skipping noise. This one improves the sonics. It is also way cheaper. Bravo on an excellent product.

Review: Even with these ancient ears I perceived a diminution of glare and haze.

Review: I read the reviews and thought it would be worth a try. I played a few short favorite cuts with and without the SBH. To me the sound was smoother with an improved sound stage. No edginess and no fatigue.

I ran some listening tests with my wife and did not tell her what I was doing. She picked the cuts with the SBH as the better sounding selections. Keep up the good work Steve.

Review: The Super Black Hole is awesome!! This little disc has transformed the performance of my Oppo universal player. In my system I found the mids to be tighter and more focused and the bass was dramatically extended . I can now feel the rumble of the low end without a sub woofer. Another remarkable product from Steve. You are the man!

Review: The Super Black Hole eats my Marigo Signature 3-D mat for lunch!!

Review: The SBH came today. What a piece o crap! Just kidding. Steve, I have been in this hobby a long time and have seen and heard many claims and even more gear so I try not to be over the top or too effusive with the praise or it tends to catch up with you. That said, without trying to sound like a pompous windbag, I have a fairly high end system by most people standards. So I get this $32 donut hole and think to myself "what is this little hole really going to do?" Damn Steve, the heck if I could find a down side to this thing (and I listened closely for five hours to music I know very well!) Solidity, weight, image, focus and timbre were all excellently portrayed.

I have the Marigo Signature Mat and, in my system it just doesn't sound the way I want it to.

Thanks again for a great sounding piece. I may need to buy a couple more.

Name: Bret Miller, Springfield, Illinois Review: Dave Shulte of Upgrade company recommended this to me for his awesome modded Nuforce Oppo universal Blu Ray player. Name: Richard Bryan, San Francisco, California Review: The new Black Hole is SUPER! Thanks. Name: Jann Weiss, Plan-les-Ouates, Switzerland Review: Thank you. I have received it 4 days ago and I appreciate it very much. The effect is something like higher resolution (less grunge and glare) in a very natural sounding way. Name: YC Toung, Hong Kong Review: Your Super Black Hole CD mat has improved the performance of my Pioneer PD T09 CD player. This CD player is 16 years old with the stable platter mechanism. I did not expect the Super Black Hole CD mat can make such significant improvements on the followings : - the bass is more tight and deep - the vocal is more clear - the treble is more natural.
