SATA filter III is a noise filter that upgrades PC sound by blocking noise from SSD, ODD & HDD.

– Ripple & RF noise filter are used.
– Connect to SATA connector of storage device directly.


The high quality components used on SATA filter III make the sound much stable and tight. The flexible PCB is designed to be bent for only necessary portions, it helps not to damage the other components.


If we talk about the scope of the filter, then SOtM offers to use it with both types of drives - mechanical hard drives and solid state drives (SSD), as well as optical drives. If, in the case of a hard disk or optical drive, the use of a filter is primarily aimed at reducing noise arising in the power circuits as a result of the operation of electric motors and actuators, then in the case of a solid-state drive its role, at first glance, is not so obvious

However, the measurements * show that the SOtM filter does result in a reduction in noise and interference in the power supply circuits of both the SSD and the system as a whole, which ultimately improves the music server performance.

We have already observed the positive effect of using a hard disk filter when operating a device in which the output signal is transmitted to the DAC in the S / PDIF or AES / EBU standard, that is, in the form of a continuous digital stream. The reason for this is understandable: inside a computer, digital audio is negatively influenced by noise and interference, leading to increased jitter **, and using a filter reduces this influence, thus improving signal quality.

On a computer using a USB connection to send a signal to a DAC, the picture is slightly different. In this case, the digital signal is transmitted to the USB input of the DAC in the form of data packets and is again converted into a continuous signal already in the DAC itself. Using a hard disk filter can not only improve the quality of the transmitted signal, but also reduce the impact of noise and interference that penetrates the DAC through the power wire and ground wire of the USB cable, disrupting the correct operation of the converter.

In conclusion, we can say that the use of SOtM filters is justified both for a mechanical hard disk or optical drive, as well as a solid-state drive, and in a wide variety of PC-based music server designs.

For example, when listening to test pieces of music from the Nuforce Audio Concept Demo, you can immediately hear that the double bass sounds clearer and more articulated with the filter than without it. And the overall musical palette of the ensemble's sound becomes a little brighter and more saturated with SOtMSATA filter than without filter. And here it is difficult to assume that this device can introduce additional, excessive coloration - after all, the filter does not directly participate in the processing or transmission of the audio signal, but only contributes to a better operation of one of the source elements.

Comparison on other high-quality audiophile-level recordings also gave a positive effect, which may indicate, as I see it, that the use of the SOtM filter allows the listener to preserve the most "fragile" components of the digital audio signal for the listener, which could be destroyed.

Summing up, I want to say that the use of a SOtM filter with a hard disk is quite justified and allows you to eliminate the negative influence of the latter on the sound of a digital source. Music with SOtM SATA filter II will sound better. I recommend it .



The World's First Consumer V-NAND SSD - Ultimate Read/Write Performance

Boasting the lowest power consumption of any SSD when in standby or full use


Samsung's flash memory is fabricated using an innovative 3D V-NAND architecture, which stacks 32 cell layers on top of one another. The result is higher density and higher performance using a smaller footprint and a breakthrough in overcoming the density limits of conventional planar NAND.

Ultimate Read/Write Performance

Powered by Samsung's cutting-edge 3D V-NAND technology, the NAND flash memory delivers class-leading read and write performance for both sequential and random workloads.

Enhanced Endurance

With twice the endurance of the previous model*, the 850 PRO will keep working as long as you do. Samsung's V-NAND technology is built to handle a minimum of 150 Terabytes Written (TBW) over the lifetime of the drive, which equates to a 40 GB daily read/write workload over a 10-year period. Plus, it comes with the industry's top-level ten-year limited warranty.

Efficient Power Management

The efficient design of the 850 PRO enables you work longer and more productively. Boasting the lowest power consumption of any SSD when in standby or full use, the 850 PRO uses less energy while maintaining class-leading performance. The 850 PRO fully supports Device Sleep mode for Ultrabook™, consuming only 2 milliwats (2mw) of power in its ultra low power state. Plus, its low power DDR2 cache memory provides high performance while consuming up to 30 percent less power when active and up to 93 percent less power when idle than typical DDR2 or DDR3 memory.
