Is the 0.8 going to be discontinued, or is it just a high inventory item?
For me as well the greatest effect was achieved with my amps and then the Extreme and lampi Pacific.Congratulations Joe and Steve - Jacob Heilbrun of TAS also loved the CMS footers and his report is now accessible online!
Curiously Jacob found that the footers had the greatest effect in his amplifiers, just the place where I have not tried them, as I am regularly switching amplifiers for evaluation ...
Hello Joe & Steve,
CK Tam and Leo are very dedicated audiophiles in Hong Kong and good friends of mine.
They are in the process of replacing all the footers underneath their audio components with Center Stage 2.
They have much experience in various audiophile footers such as Stillpoint 5/6, Revopod ... etc but once listened to the performance of burned-in Center Stage 2, there is no way going back!
I myself had home-trialed CS1 a few months ago. They were good but I didn't take the plunge.
The CS2 is a different story and I am now following the path of CK Tam & Leo.
Thanks Joe and his son for such a fabulous creation!
Thanks Steve for letting us to know the CS 1/2!
Below is a photo taken yesterday when I went to audition a Totaldac D1-Direct DAC. The CS2 0.8 transformed and elevated its performance greatly!

i guess i'm running a few years behind you as i just re-discovered this thread and the comment re: D1-Direct.
i've just had my first experience with CMS2 footers (thanks Dave at AudioDoctor) and brought 2 sets home to put under my Ayon Triton monoblocks. before doing so, i placed them under my D1-Direct and XP-22. the impact was immediate and the most obvious benefit in a 10 minute (!) listen was improved image focus and end of note/vocal decay. i then moved the CMS2 1.0 devices to my amps and heard qualitatively similar improvements.............but now I don't have CMS under my dac or pre-amp
how many i end up with eventually is TBD but these are winners out of the box (actually, they are audiodoctor's demo units so are well broken in to some extent).
@cckeung (or anyone else)
did you put CMS2 under the d1-direct and the streamer/re-clocker or just under the d1-direct? i.e. is there further improvement putting a set under the streamer/re-clocker?
have you compared the 0.8 with the 1.0 or 1.5 sizes? if i understand correctly (and i next need to read the CMS forum), the sizes are not related to the weight bearing of the devices but the larger sizes provide further improvement.
