Atlas Cables Hyper 3.5 Speaker Cable
A sophisticated cable engineered to offer a higher level of transparency than products typically supplied in ‘single-brand’ systems.
We’re regularly asked by users of ‘single-brand’ systems from companies such as Naim and Linn if our cables could improve their system without sacrificing its essential character.
It’s relatively easy to deliver an improvement in a specific area, but more difficult to create a cable that improves on overall detail, accuracy and open-ness without losing the signature speed and character of these systems.
All Atlas cables are designed to impose as little of any inherent character as possible, achieved through careful selection of materials and construction methods, but we feel this latest generation Hyper cable is exceptionally transparent, allowing the equipment characteristics to be conveyed intact.
The cable employs conductors comprising 72 0.25mm² high-purity OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) strands encapsulated within a carefully selected high-efficiency PTFE (Teflon™) dielectric coating. The resultant conductor is embedded within an anti-vibration filler and finished in the Hyper gloss black sleeve.
Default termination is with the Atlas Tin Cobalt finished metal Z plug. This Aluminium alloy Z plug body has the same non magnetic qualities of its very popular black ABS brother as well as it’s insulating qualities (plug body to plug body). Also available terminated with our cold-weld high quality OFC spades or our Transpose Modular Termination System. Transpose options include Z-plugs or OFC spades in gold or silver.
This non-magnetic aluminium alloy Z plug body is a low-mass, self-cleaning, solder-free construction speaker plug. These cables can also be supplied with a spade tag option at one or both ends, please specify when ordering.
OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) was developed based on research that sound quality was related to the quality of copper and the processing used during cable manufacture.
PTFE (Teflon™) is usually applied at higher temperatures and in combination with OFC conductors. OCC materials don’t like high temperatures (soldering, applying the dielectric etc) so application of a low temperature PTFE (Teflon™) or FEP work best with OCC conductors. This is especially critical at smaller conductor sizes.
A pair of identically matched conductors (one for signal path, the other acts as the return conductor) enclosed within a non-conducting screen.
