    The Atlas Ascent is the first of our Reference product range; it joins the Mavros and the Asimi; these are designed to work with audiophile quality amplifiers and speakers that will benefit from the superior quality. The Mavros will faithfully provide the listener with a full and detailed sound; often introducing information from the source component that listeners can be forgiven for believing was never there before! At Atlas our design mission is to get as much deletion free information from one end of the cable to the other without distorting the sound or giving the sound a high frequency bias such as silver plated cables do. That's why the VOP (velocity of propagation) is a measurement we're happy to provide. Fast cables don't delete signals in the way a slow cable will.

    The Atlas Ascent audiophile cables arrive in two sizes: These contain 2 sq mm or 3.50 sq mm of the finest stranded Ohno Continuous Cast, non deleting copper within a PTFE dielectric. Use the 2.0 where bass is not a prerequsite or the 3.50 if increased low frequency information is desired. The Ascent cables follow on the Atlas tradition and design philosophy. They offer a holographic image with depth, height and width. They are transparent and an ambience that perhaps was never heard before is given to the listener with the Ascent cables. They offer a silent background, high resolution of low level detail and a sibilant and smear free high frequency delivery.

    "The benefits of using this cable are at once subtle and yet surprisingly profound. They're the kind of sound quality differences that don't leap out at you instantly, but gradually make you realise that there is an extra level of musical involvement over what was there before."

    FREE CABLE BURN-IN SERVICE OPTION USING THE NORDOST VIDAR MACHINE WHEN YOU PURCHASE THIS CABLE FROM FUTURESHOP.CO.UK

    We are pleased to offer a free cable burn-in service for this cable when purchased through us. The Nordost VIDAR cable burn-in machine combines three different functions all in one operation:

    • It neutralises charges that build up around the cables and the insulation

    • It provides a very wide band and deep conditioning into the conductor core, which produces changes in the way signals pass through the metal.

    • It ultrasonically conditions the surface of the conductors.


    • The VIDAR uses a proprietary combination of composite and complex signals to condition the cables. Parts of the signal oscillate at ultra-low frequencies, while other parts are in ultra-high ranges which extend beyond the range of video frequencies. The signal bounces in a ping-ping ball-like fashion from one end of the cable to the other. During the burn-in process, ultra-low frequencies penetrate deep into the core of the cable. The ultra-high frequencies zip along the surface. This method of signal transmission a set up beat harmonics, or heterodynes, between the two complex waveforms. In the digital domain, this would be referred to as aliasing products. These beat frequencies penetrate all layers of the cable.

      The design of the circuitry also has a unique feature which drives electrons above the conductor into the dielectric (or insulation) area. The VIDAR not only sends ping pong signals along the cable, it also sends a similar signal from the centre core to the outer shield in the case of interconnect cables. This function neutralises the electrical charges discussed above.

      So what does that all mean to me?
      The end result of conditioning cables with the Nordost VIDAR is improved sound staging, increased detail, and an overall more musical presentation.

      TERMINATION

      We can terminate your cable with Atlas's unique superb 24 Carat gold plated Z plugs designed to fit 4mm sockets on your amplifier and speakers. Z plugs are equivalent to banana plugs and will fit any equipment designed to take banana plugs.

      The Atlas Z plug has stood the test of time. Using beryllium copper for the contact area, it's designed to make a 100% contact within the 4mm female socket. The body is made from 100% copper and they're cold welded under pressure in order to amalgamate the conductors to the plug in an air tight seal. The outer sleeve is finished in black coloured ABS or in a turned brass with a fine oven applied powder coat finish. The Atlas Z plug is justifiably considered to be one of best 4mm plugs available. We can also terminate your cable using Atlas high quality 24 carat gold plated spade plugs.

      HOW TO ORDER

      Simply select the length of cable, the type of plug and the termination required (one end or both ends) from the drop-down menus above and click on the 'Buy' button to add the item to your basket. Your cable will be dispatched within 24 hours subject to Future Shop Terms & Conditions. Alternatively, if you wish to fit the banana plugs yourself, visit the banana plug section of our website by CLICKING HERE .

      What You Should Know

      All cables delete information, the Atlas cables delete least. Factors such as copper quality, that of the dielectrics and the plugs all have an important role to play. The basic design philosophy is the same with all Atlas speaker cables, from the entry level Basic 1.25 to the top of the range Ichor and Mavros cables. The differences between them are in the purity of the Oxygen Free Copper (OFC) or the Ohno Continuous Cast (OCC) copper, the quality of the plugs or spades, through to the number and type of conductors and the way the strands are laid or woven into conductors, and the insulation or dielectrics used. The Atlas Equator, Hyper and Ascent speaker cables can be purchased in different sizes. That's because the larger conductors have a lower resistance to low frequency signals and may provide more bass. In Atlas bi wired cables, the high frequencies are carried over a solid conductor. A solid conductor has a greater occupation area for the HF signal hence improved HF information.

      About Atlas Cables

      Atlas Cables are a major producer of interconnects and cables in the United Kingdom of Great Britain. All products are researched, developed and most are assembled in the Atlas purpose built factory in Scotland. Many of these products are unique and use advanced techniques of production or manufacture in order to bring to the user the very finest quality products. With each new model we continue to push the boundaries of reliability and performance. It's little wonder then, that Atlas Cables have had so many mile-stone advances in the past and that Atlas Cables have secured so many awards in comparative tests against other products.

      What is OCC Copper

      In 1985 Professor Ohno from the China Institute of Technology developed his patented method for the extrusion of a grain free copper wire. (Technical papers are available from the Japan Inst. Metals and from Chapman & Hall, publishers.)

      When a pure metal solidifies, its crystals grow in a specific geometrical pattern (typical to that metal) emanating from a nucleus, rather like the dendritic growth pattern of a tree. The size of the metal crystals grown can be varied by repeatedly annealing metal such as is done in the LC-OFC process. The structure of a strand of copper may be likened to that of a bag of sugar. Every grain of sugar has a crystal boundary. In a conductor, these crystal boundaries (potential barriers) act as a non-linear resistance to the flow of electric current. It follows that, the fewer the boundaries, the less the effect on an electric signal as it propagates from one end of the conductor to the other.
