An analogue interconnect capitalising on proven Atlas technologies and design criteria; the Atlas Elektra All Cu (all copper) features deletion free OCC for both the going and the return conductors and employs a PTFE dielectric together with a cotton yarn filler in order to increase signal velocity and reduce microphony.
100% rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI) is provided by an OCC braid and a copper mylar shield.
The Atlas Elektra will reveal hitherto hidden sonic capabilities in most systems. Depth and resolution of minute details appear from a silent background. Instrument separation is precise and focused and a holographic soundstage replicates exactly the original.
The Elektra is a superior design that may be used for fully balanced systems with Atlas All Cu XLR plugs or as in the case of this cable, in a pseudo balanced fashion with the Atlas patented OCC copper (All Cu) RCA plug. The copper plug that’s cold welded or crimped on to the conductors with an air tight seal, avoids the use of solder. Solder presents an unecessary barrier to the signal and at Atlas we believe the finest qualities result from the removal of barriers to the signal such as the use of solder or materials of differing characteristics from the signal carrying conductors, hence the OCC or All Cu plug; it provides more deletion free information.
The Elektra together with the Atlas Titan and the Atlas Opus are the three interconnects in the range of Atlas audiophile cables for very high quality systems. The Elektra sounds analogue like in it’s rather pleasing presentation, giving lots of stereo width, height and depth with ambience and good instrument separation. For those looking for a high quality, sophisticated and relaxed sound the Elektra is the interconnect to buy.
Try matching the Elektra with the Atlas Ascent 2.0, Ascent 3.5 or for bi wiring the Atlas Ichor speaker cable.
