We’re continuing to see an upsurge in popularity among equipment manufacturers for XLR connectors and balanced configurations. Accordingly we’ve created the new Equator XLR, based on our multi-award winning Equator RCA interconnect, and offering a superb price/performance ratio.

A superior balanced interconnect designed for today’s increasingly electrically noisy home environment.

Balanced OCC core and high-efficiency screening (to protect against noise inducing RFI) combine to offer a very revealing yet neutral sound. High levels of RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) in a poorly shielded cable can result in a ‘bright’ sound which superficially suggests additional detail. In fact, a cable with superior screening may sound slightly ‘darker’ on first hearing, although one quickly realises the detail is all present, just without the artificial leading edge ‘spotlit’ effect, and quieter backgrounds allow a wider dynamic range to be conveyed by the cable.

The Atlas Equator XLR is constructed with four central multi-core conductors of high purity OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) copper encapsulated within a low-loss foamed Polyethylene dielectric, with excellent immunity to interference and noise, making it ideally suited to longer cable runs.

The cable is terminated with our low-mass cold-weld (solder-free) XLR plugs, facilitating extremely consistent construction and improved audio performance.

The result is a beautifully balanced interconnect which offers a large three dimensional soundstage and fine levels of resolution.

The Equator range includes subwoofer, interconnect, streaming and speaker cables.

Features

OCC XLR

The Atlas XLR combines a lightweight aluminium alloy body with precision-fit OFC/OCC connectors and solder-free construction.

OCC Copper

OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) process was developed by Professor Ohno, from the Chiba Institute of Technology, to manufacture a very high purity single grain copper or silver. There are only a handful of companies in the world manufacturing via this method.

PEF

PEF (Foamed Polyethylene). The foaming process uses a blowing agent, of which there are two types. Atlas use the gas-foamed method which creates a more inert, consistent and higher quality product.

4 core + screen

A pair of identically matched conductors (one for signal path, the other acts as the return conductor) enclosed within a non-conducting screen.
