The Art of Wires

At Astral Acoustics, our focus extends beyond merely selecting high-quality metals. We delve into the complexities of advanced wire structuring to optimize the performance of our audio cables. This includes rigorous experimentation with various aspects of cable design, such as strand sizing, gauge size, dielectric materials, and the type of litz structure.

Strand sizing and gauge size are pivotal to the construction of our cables. Different sizes can subtly influence sound quality, and finding the right balance is a meticulous process. We don't just adhere to conventional wisdom but constantly experiment with various sizes to identify the configurations that yield the best audio performance.

The choice of dielectric materials, or insulators, also plays a crucial role in our cables' design. The right dielectric can reduce signal loss and interference, preserving the purity of the audio signal. We explore a range of materials, always in pursuit of the optimal combination of durability, performance, and, most importantly, softness.

Furthermore, we delve into the intricacies of litz wire structure, known for its ability to reduce the skin effect and proximity effect losses in audio cables. Configuring the individual strands in a litz wire requires precision and expertise, and we are continually refining our approach to harness its full potential.

In sum, our focus on advanced wire structuring embodies our commitment to excellence and innovation as we continuously experiment and evolve to deliver audio cables that meet the highest standards of performance and reliability.

Our Founder

I, Henry Tik H.Y., joined the world of audio under my father's influence, but unlike my father, I am more into personal audio than speakers.

My hands-on nature laid the foundation for this business, making my first cable in 2014 and slowly developing into what it is today.

Over the years, I have been perfecting my craft and continuously expanding my knowledge of signal transmission. Gaining knowledge is a slow and long process and requires lots of trial and error. I'm glad I'm still staying afloat.

I ensure everything we put out is up to standard, and if they aren't good enough for me, it won't be good enough for you.

Oh, and I'm a metalhead, and I'm fucking proud of it.
