ULTRA-Q

surpasses the best entries
of other manufacturers

Improved to exceed your expectations, the Ultra-Q surpasses the best entries of other manufacturers in performance and aesthetic. With technology trickled down from our top-of-the-line OLYMPUS-Ultra, Ultra-Q is another Masterwork of Thermodynamics designed exclusively for high end audio systems to provide music lovers realism in their listening experience. The Ultra-Q used the OLYMPUS-Ultra as a template.  It is a miniaturized version of our statement architecture.  The Ultra-Q machining follows the cuts and chamfers of the OLYMPUS-Ultra and even requires multiple insertions into the CNC machine just as the OLYMPUS-Ultra does.

The Ultra-Diamond and Ultra-Platinum filters which can be used with the Ultra-Q architecture, are constructed following our patented and award-winning dual-zone, 12-stage vibration damping model. Our unique Dual-Zone, 12-stage system is unparalleled in producing the lowest and most neutral noise floor in the industry. Ultra-Q and its filters help components create a much-coveted sense of realism across the audible spectrum.

FEATURES:

  • Aluminum alloy framework
  • Titanium alloy spikes and connectors
  • Tungsten alloy bearings
  • Constrained Layer damping
  • Twelve-stage, dual zone damping system
    • Upper 6-stage Damping Zone
      • 21 layer sandwich grouped in constrained damping layers
      • 3 different top plate materials for rigidity under load
      • 6 different damping materials precisely sequenced based on nomograph damping data
    • Lower 6-stage Damping Zone
      • 17 layer sandwich grouped in constrained damping layers
      • Select bottom plate material for rigidity under load
      • 6 different damping materials precisely sequenced based on nomograph damping data

SPECIFICATIONS:

  • Standard width and depth: 26” W x 23.5” D
  • Horizontal tolerance to 0.0005”
  • Vertical tolerance to 0.0005”
  • Titanium alloy lockdown bolts at X-axis
  • Vertical usable space is custom made to owners requirements
  • Load limit: Filter limit is approximately 200 lbs (91 kilos) per component (higher limits are an option)
  • Shipping weight: approximately 66 lbs (30 kilos) per level
