The Atlas Basic Bi Wire uses 2sq mm of concentric stranded OFC copper contained in two twisted conductors for the rejection of RFI and EMI together with another two conductors consisting of a pair of 1.1 sq mm solid conductors to extend the high frequencies into improved smear free treble. The four conductors are contained in a polyethylene dielectric and are sheatheed overall with a pearl white PVC to protect the conductors from abrasion. The Atlas Basic Bi Wire is considered in many quarters, the reference for an entry level Bi Wire speaker cable. On demonstration, the Atlas Basic Bi Wire in any modest system will perform as though it cost double it's price. Bass and treble frequencies are given extension while dynamics are offered at speed thereby giving a realism rarely heard in similarly priced cables.
"The key here is balance. This wires's even approach means you can concentrate on the music, not on sticky-out treble or forward bass. And if you have a long cable run, or a multichannel speaker package to connect, this keeps your costs down.
Verdict: A cracking entry-level cable that offers a neutral balance - it's a big improvement over bundled wires." What HI-FI Sound & Vision November 2004

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.

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.
