    The Atlas Equator provides for most system types. It is available as a 2 sq mm cable or a 3 sq mm cable or in the form of a bi-wire cable using 2.sq mm for the bass and two conductors of 1.2 sq mm for the treble. Unlike it's less expensive siblings, the Equator uses a Polypropylene dielectric that's far more efficient than PVC or polyethylene, and that gives greater signal velocity or speed thereby maintaining improved phase stability. The conductors are contained in a cotton yarn in order to reduce microphony and the outer sheath is in a tasteful pearl white finish. The Equator cables give an assured fatigue free performance with extended and sweet treble and a satisfying bass. Altogether these cables offer an effortless sound that provides a holographic sound stage with stereo width, height and depth that involve the listener. Buy the 2.0 sq mm for good balanced systems, the 3.0 sq mm to increase bass and the Bi Wire for improved high frequency performance.

    "It's hard to strike a balance with speaker cables. All of them use their construction and materials to massage the sound fed through them - bringing out treble at the cost of punch, say - but this Atlas takes the neutral approach." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision October 2012 Rating

    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.

    William Laidlaw The quality of audio speaker cable and speed of delivery are exemplary. The advice and service when dealing with futureshop was a great experience will always use this forward thinking company from now on. Also assured if I was not happy to get in touch, and after coupling the AV system up tell them what I think of the sound. Really happy with this level of support Thank you to the 2 Adams. Also very happy with the sound quality from my AV system which is the main thing.

    Asked for a certain type of speaker cable which was not really the one for my system. Got advice from Adam Senior and went for above cable gave measurements for 5 cables with 4 mm plugs going to the AV amp unfortunately one was the wrong length just told to send back the next day the correct cable length arrived. Adam Junior gave me the refund. The cables are amazing big improvement on original cables. The service from the guys at Future shop is amazing the advice is for each install even if the cables are cheaper. The two Adams are real gents will definitely buy from this unique company again focus is on customer satisfaction. Being a member of which magazine want to see this company on it's list of top service internet companies.

    This is my first step into the higher grade of audio cables. A friend of mine has good experience with Atlas so he recommended the brand to me. My amplifier has very narrow cable terminals so anything bigger then 2.5 is a no go. So my eyes fell on the Equator 2.0 cable. Ordering was easy, the available options are very useful. I ordered my cable with the amp end already stripped and the speaker end with the Atlas Z-Plugs. Since burn-in was also available i chose that option as well. And it's free of charge! Can't say no to that. Waiting for the cables.. didn't know what to expect. At first when i opened the package i saw a very thick and nicely finished cable. The plugs were fitted perfectly and the whole setup looked rigid and ready to go. Hooked up to my vintage Yamaha M-4 poweramp and Philips FB825 speakers. Wow.. what a difference that made. My original speaker cable was just some cheap brandless 2.5mm OFC from the local hardware store. The moment i switched to the Equator i heard details in the high notes that i've never heard before. And the low frequency.. Wow! What an impact that bass has right now... Never knew a cable can do so much to the musical experience. I am satisfied to the max! Great cable! From now on, i will order every cable i need from Atlas.

    Atlas Equator 2.0 Speaker Cable. An ideal cable for small speakers and/or a system which is slightly bright. It gives a very full sound - it seemed as though my small speakers (Q Acoustics 1020i) had been replaced by larger ones with no trace of brightness. I had previously used Audioquest FLX-SLiP 14/4 cable in bi-wire mode (which incidentally I subsequently found out is not recommended by Audioquest). Initially I found the 14/4 excellent but later on I was left wanting more weight with some tracks. Connecting the Atlas cable to my speakers (including the Q Acoustics 'jumpers') raised an interesting issue. A cleaner more dynamic sound was obtained by connecting the positive cable to the base unit positive terminal and the negative cable to the base unit negative terminal, instead of connecting 'diagonally' using a treble unit terminal. [Using the former rather than the later would have given the QED XT40 cable 4/5 instead of 3/5 when I reviewed it. The XT40 gives a similar full sound but is not as good as the Atlas].

    I purchased the Atlas Equator 2.0 after being impressed with the open neutral sound of the Entegra III interconnects. Even before the Equator cable had time to burn in the sound was already cleaner, natural and more detailed than I'd experienced since initially using just the Entegra III interconnects. All this for two thirds less than the price of my existing Kimber 4PR speaker cable, which by comparison is a bit on the bright side and uncomfortable on the ears during a prolonged listen. I thoroughly recommend this speaker cable to anyone wanting a natural, clean and detailed sound with no colouration.

    Preliminary: 1. Your service is simply too fast! I intended to have some discussion in the meanwhile, but you already shiped the cable. Thanks! 2. I'm stll waiting for the speakers and so far cannot have any opinion on the matched result. 3. In fact, I was hesitating between this and QED XTC or XT40, since I do have excellent previous experience with QED Silver Anniversary speaker cables. Will add my impressions after few hours of listening to new Tannoy Mercury V1, or Montor Audio Bronze2 or Boston A26. Sincerely, Milos

    Having been dissapointed with my previous choice of speaker cable, Future Shop recommended these cables and what a difference. These were exactly what I was looking for. They seem to suit my Minx min 21's and I can't stop listening to them. There is loads detail and imaging is excellent. Even at low volumes, the sound expands into the room and at higher volumes, it's just amazing. I'm listening to tracks from start to finish which I'd previously got bored with. I'm hearing things I've not heard before and music is making much more sense. Everything sounds more realistic. There seems to be a good balance between the amount of detail available and how much the image is projected and this gives a good sense of realism. How a budget cable can make such a difference I don't know, but when I need new interconnects, I'll be looking at Atlas cables from Future Shop.

    Communication with the seller was very good, shipping precise and very fast (4 days to Italy!). The description of the product you want to do is really extraordinary. I am satisfied and would recommend the purchase of Atlas to you all!! Atlas Equator 2.0 return a dry sound and precise. The details of the records emerge from the bottom and reach our ears. The low, before a little 'bloated and boomy, with Atlas are dry and precise and are always checked and warm. They are definitely neutral wires and make the recordings authentic, leaving unaltered the quality of great recordings and great! The voices are very realistic, measured, warm and not at all shrill. If you love the great Jazz and want to really listen to what the musicians have been affected, I suggest you try to listen to your music with these "amazing" cables. Savino Freda (ITALY)
