    IMR Pro Audio: Sonic Adventures & Impressions

    Well, this thread has been a lot of fun the last couple of days. From desk top rigs to tissue and lube - my, my, we've covered pretty much everything! I thought I check in with an Astra Report. Mine are at about 140 hours now - and I'm loving these things. I'm still on Black / Blue and...

    Not yet. We tend to all get the email at the same time so sit tight, you're an hour ahead of me and will probably have it before I do!

    IMR Pro Audio: Sonic Adventures & Impressions

    These babies have been either in my ears or hooked up to my desktop rig for about 44 hours now. Definitely sounded better out of the box and yesterday at around 30 hours. This morning they sound lifeless, like the body and soul got scooped out them, definitely no vivd definition anymore...

    IMR Pro Audio: Sonic Adventures & Impressions

    My Astras have arrived. Out of the box and 10 minutes in and I can honestly say. "Oh yeah, I know I'm going to like these!". They haven't even begun to burn in and I can hear all the potential in them. It's probably the most crystal clear, articulate and well extended treble I've heard in any...

    Unique Melody 3D Terminator 3DT Announcement Thread

    The screen on my left one is also pushed in like yours. I'm fairly certain the screen is there to prevent wax from getting in. I havent tried to fix it becaus i havent got anything thin enough to get in the mesh and pul it back into place. So far it has just stayed in it's new wedged...

    Thanks for this..... I'm still waiting for my Astra to arrive but lurking and watching this thread had started pusing me in the diection of buyers remorse as the decision for me was between MEST 2 and Astra - this post gives me a little hope! I look forward to sharing my experience soon.

    Shanling M3X Portable Player - Our smallest Android Player

    My M6 did the same thing yesterday. Just randomly while in standby went from 100% to 58% for no aparant reason. I found that I had set it to USB DAC mode. I changed it back to SD, rebooted it and the problem was gone. Give it a try

    interesting.... when you saybattery drain problem, what app(s) are you running and what kind of drain are you getting. Mine was (I sold mine to upgrade to M6 Pro 21) buring an average of 5% per hour balanced out dual dac

    IMR Pro Audio: Sonic Adventures & Impressions

    Forbidden words? I like my scotch 3 fingers over a beautiful ball of ice. I take my espresso as tripple shot, tabasco and Franks Red Hot goes on everything (well kind of but not really) and I'm greatful for an EQ to lift the highs and lower the lows!. Although I will admit that with this...

    A different answer but out of curiosity, I put my Elysium in to the Cutouts of the RAH case and they fit perfectly so the shells are very similar if not identical. The depths might be different but the size in width and shape are the same.

    Beauties! Really looking forward to hearing your take on them. My Astras have left the UK - I'm thinking I'll have them on Friday. Have fun!

    Interesting. I'm looking forward to experimenting. Thus far I've preferred Azla Sednas and Tennmak Foams on all my IMRs but who knows the Astra could change all that too.... :ksc75smile:
