Established in 2016, Astral Acoustics is a Hong Kong-based audio company specializing in designing and manufacturing premium audio cables and wires. Our journey began as a modest cable business and has slowly started to provide high-quality wires and accessory components to fellow cable manufacturers and audio hobbyists.
We aim to deliver the absolute best to those seeking superior audio performance, fostering an enhanced listening experience that aligns with our philosophy of simplicity and practicality.
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.
Henry Tik H.Y. joined the world of audio under the influence of his father, but unlike his father, Henry was more into personal audio rather than speakers.
His hands-on nature led him to his first cable project in 2014 and laid the foundation of this company.
Over the years, Henry has been perfecting his craft and continuously expanding his knowledge of signal transmission.
He ensures everything we put out is up to his standards, and if they aren't good enough for him, they won't be good enough for you.
