Heritage bottles now work with regular Astros!

Well, after a lot of bad stuff in my personal situation (which sadly isn't going to go away), and having pursued other interests (PowerPC Macs and MiniDiscs), I'm finally back at lava. My interests…Continue

Heritage Astro bottle on Silver Astro Base

Started this discussion. Last reply by IdOrU 02 Nov 9, 2015. 1 Reply

Alright, I know that Mathmos' site vaguely explains that a Heritage Astro bottle won't work right on a regular Astro base. However, I remember reading somewhere that you could actually put a Heritage…Continue

"The new bases with the inserts hold the globe much better - the bottom of the globe sits on this instead of the edge of the base like the old versions that's why its hard to get the bottle perfectly straight espshaly if the base has got…"

"I own three new Astro Lamp bases and they are fine... I wonder why Mathmos put the inserts in! Never got any better than the Mk 5 in my humble opinion  :)"

Heritage bottles now work with regular Astros!

I was recently looking through Mathmos' site, and noticed that the warnings about the Heritage bottles not working on the Silver Astros were removed. First I thought this was a mistake, but the FAQ explains:Although we offer different colours for the Astro and the heritage range, these bottles can now be used interchangeably so the good news is you can now use your Astro bottle on your heritage lamp and vice versa.So they changed the formula of both lamps to work with the same amount of heat?…See More

"Technically not. CD is uncompressed PCM audio, MiniDisc uses ATRAC compression, which is similar to MP3. I still like the format, and I cannot hear the difference much myself."

Astro Inserts

One thing that has annoyed me slightly about my Astros, is that I never seem to be able to get the bottle perfectly straight in the base. It's always (or at least seems to me to be) just a little off, and I keep fiddling with it. I read that the new Astros have inserts in them, and that those probably can be ordered from Mathmos. Do these inserts make this easier? If so, I'd buy a pair if possible. Does anyone with a new Mathmos Astro, or an older one with said insert, know if this is true?See More
