The Mosaic state-of-the-art optimization system offers High-end performance for significantly less time, money and effort.

The Mosaic Story...

In 2014,  I was a  manufacturer's rep for a high-end wire company from Canada. At that time, we were introducing a new line of silver interconnects. The break-in time was quit significant due to the non-compliant nature of the dielectric material. The Cable cooker machine was a possibility but connecting several yards of cables in a Cooker was not practical and very time-consuming.

The birth of the unique Wave Stream filter™.

After a few weeks of brainstorming, I came up with the idea of creating a new filter. The plan was to attach a wide bandwidth noise filter to a source, play a 24-hr burn-in disc, connect the cables and observe the results. To my surprise, the sound character changed dramatically. The A-B test confirmed the improvement was due to the filter. Over several months, I made changes to the filter design and began experimenting with various types of electronics. One intriguing experiment resulted in the shocking transformation of a 60lb. digital beast!

In retrospect, these events cemented the idea that such filtering could significantly improve sound quality for a variety of components. The filter experiments expanded to preamps, amplifiers, and speakers ranging from $2K to $50K. In the final analysis, we needed to test the sonic benefits with our audiophile friends. The final obstacle, how can we demonstrate this unique filter to a wide audience of listeners so we can draw a consensus of opinion.
The answer was to showcase our technology to headphone enthusiasts. If they could hear the improvement, we could confidently proclaim success.

The advantage of demonstrating our technology using You Tube.

At Canjam 2017, Caprice Audio introduced the technology in our first commercial product "Mosaic" Wave Stream. The headphone Shows include RMAF, Axpona, Capital Audiofest, and New York City.  Our goal was to demonstrate the efficacy of noise shunting technology and its effect. Is it possible to improve an Audio system using a plug and play user interface.
The Wave Stream effect was indeed heard loud and clear by both consumer and the Press. Please see Chris Martins (Hi-fi+) enthusiastic response below.

We were insane to use a You Tube track as a sound demo, or were we?

Most of you know that You Tube compression algorithm is not audiophile quality. But we must point out, we successfully demonstrated the efficacy of our Wave Stream filter™ to deliver more than acceptable results. We surprised ourselves with how improved You Tube music can sound dynamically fulfilling and immediate.

"The Big Reveal" in a Full range system.

At Capital Audiofest 2019, we introduced the Mosaic to a full-range 2-Channel High-End system for the first time. Our showroom featured the superb Alta Audio "Alec" speaker system, the mighty KR Audio amplification system and the superb Resonessence Labs ESS DAC. We were thrilled that attendees approved the sound of this full range high-end system with the Mosaic playing its part on the amplifier speaker interface.


The Mosaic: A conductive system engineered with Nano-tech materials.

The current Wave Stream is an advanced Nano-tech based design. We improved the Mosaic performance by designing a star-ground matrix based on our new conductor treatment called Slipstream™. We incorporated Slipstream buffer stages to directly influence circuit noise levels or what is commonly referred to as the noise floor. The common industry norm is to have the lowest noise possible as a "value" performance spec. This can be misleading especially when measuring high performing but noisy tube gear. Instead, we view an entire system's noise level shaped by its weakest link.

The potential of all High-End systems are masked by transient noise that is difficult to measure on all levels. Instruments are compasses in this area not truths. 

Speakers, Streamers and CD players all benefit from a Mosaic driver system based on Wave Stream technology™. Our Wave Stream buffer stages shunt noise during playback.  Starting from any source to the speaker, a Mosaic-driven system offers superior aid shaping a systems noise level. Less noise more music better performance.

Optimization as an upgrade tool leads to greater musical synergy.

Audiophiles use tools to revitalize and optimize a system. We invest in linear power supplies, high-grade cables, and mechanical isolation devices for a good reason, they work! By reducing each component's noise level, the overall system achieves a greater power outcome in performance. But the best news is our plug and play solution gives you greater optimization control over your entire system. A simple and effective way to achieving very high levels of performance..

Mosaic Integration

In some ways, a poorly optimized audio system is similar to a poorly tuned instrument. Unleashing the capability of your system is a complex task made simple with Mosaic Integration.  What is more surprising, is you can achieve very high performance for proportionally less expense making the Mosaic a bargain. You can start with one Mosaic and build up to several custom Mosaic configurations. No need for software integration and updates. As we guide you through, you have complete control.  

Slipstream™Solution

Caprice Audio's Slipstream solution is a high-speed buffering stage that reduces noise. These stages isolate components from each other by creating mini-buffers to control a system's noise level. Less noise, more dynamic output. As a result, a digital device can efficiently perform at very high signal-to-noise levels without distortion due to a reduction in transmission garbage being bounced between components. The improved timing and pitch can lead to a dramatic analog "reveal".

Mosaic Power

The quality of a power system is based on its ability to transfer voltage without loss. A Mosaic Power system is a breakthrough concept, passively driving multiple devices all at once without introducing noise. Low signal sources gain dynamic control, a reduction in ground leakage and enhanced voltage stability. All three synergistically produce life-like immediacy, whisper-quiet detail, and dynamic range suitable enough to raise the hairs on your skin. Call today for a free no-obligation system test.

Testimonials

Chris Martens Hi Fi+ 2018 review : "The new firm Caprice Audio showed its impressive new Mosaic Wave Stream hybrid Technology passive filter, which made for one of the more eye-opening demonstrations I heard at Canjam. Looking back over that last sentence it occurs to me that a more apt descriptor would be to call the Mosaic a passive noise floor reducer".
