We introduce a strengthening of K-stability, based on filtrations of the homogeneous coordinate ring. This allows for considering certain limits of families of test-configurations, which arise naturally in several settings. We prove that if a manifold with no automorphisms admits a cscK metric, then it satisfies this stronger stability notion. We also discuss the relation with the birational transformations in the definition of $$b$$b-stability.
