Did you know that you as the customer and us at IMR are all searching for the same thing? That Audio Nirvana! Whether you chose the Astra Ultraque or Elysium, this is it! Your only choice will be if you prefer Electrostatic detailing in the Astra Ultraque or Planar midrange and staging.
Welcome to Astra Ultraque.
Featuring a special group of drivers! The all new bespoke wide band 10mm Amorphous Diamond Like Carbon (A.D.L.C) dynamic , combined with the exquisite dual electrostatic driver and a bone conduction motor hard mounted to the Astra Ultraque's chassis will take you to a new world of sound.
The wide band A.D.L.C dynamic is a bespoke driver and is custom tuned just for the Astra Ultraque and Elysium models. This driver offers the greatest pistonic motion of any driver in an IMR before and so can deliver that low end you've all come to love from IMR but also enriches that midrange far more than any other IMR dynamic before.
The dual electrostatic driver takes care of midrange and upper register detailing and adds to that vocal layering to help bring all those subtle nuances to the forefront.
The Bone conduction motor adds something so exciting to the audio mix you will hardly believe what you are hearing. The bone conduction motor is hard mounted to the inside of the chassis and transmits the audio (via conduction) (you can't feel the vibration) through the shell direct to your inner ear and completely bypasses your eardrum. By using bone conduction it adds a layer of realism I had thought otherwise unachievable and puts you in the scene of the music and will really transport you into the music as it happens.
Combining all of these together you get a bass that is exquisite and will hit as hard and as low as the track requires, a midrange that is the most wondrous you could ask for and a treble that is as perfect, crisp and precise as you would expect from this driver combination. Providing wold class detail retrieval and placement.
The Astra Ultraque features the IMR acoustic tuning nozzle system to tweak to your perfect sound signature.
The drivers are encased in an light weight compact all anodised aluminium CNC chassis for long term durability and finish.
