Paul Wakeen, CEO on Stillpoints
I met Bruce in August of 1981. I was working on opening my own stereo store in River Falls, WI.
At that time I thought Denon and Yamaha were respectable performing products of high quality. Bruce introduced me to American made small manufactures like PS Audio, Amber, Belles, RH Labs, Vandersteen, Snell and 3D Acoustics. Over the years I’ve grown into Rockport Technologies, Viola Audio Labs, Bricasti, Wolf Audio Systems, Madison Audio Labs and Telos. I also grew from a hi-fi store owner to a distributor to a manufacturer. While distributing Aurios for Vistek Inc. Bruce told me of the stacking bearing design he had thought of and Stillpoints was born. Stillpoints will be 20 years old in 2022!
The two of us are very passionate about musical instruments and their reproduction. We’re knowledgeable of how audio systems work and how to integrate separate components into a musical system. We also understand the effects of the ultra-band noise on the music and equipment.
Stillpoints products are designed to be universal, predictable, reliable, and balanced performers. Their longevity is unmatched. Made of stainless steel and ceramics alone – there are no springs or elastomeric materials that will fade in performance over time – they are virtually indestructible, and as such will perform consistently for a lifetime. It must be said that Stillpoints performance enhancement qualities are not subtle. Our products will bring you closer to the event and make your system sound dramatically more life-like and natural. And all of our products enhance any music system without touching the signal path.
Our patented designs are the result of ‘out of the box thinking’ that runs counter to established industry thinking.
