The Atlas Element 1.25 Basic is well suited as an upgrade for high quality compact systems or for rear channel speakers in a 5.1 set-up.

Atlas Element (Basic) 1.25 White Speaker Cable - Custom Length

 

The Atlas Element 1.25 Basic is well suited as an upgrade for high quality compact systems or for rear channel speakers in a 5.1 set-up.

The Atlas Element 1.25 contains 1.25mm² of stranded OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) contained in a high density polyethylene dielectric (insulation layer), unusual at this price point where PVC is much more common. Low quality dielectrics such as PVC typically degrade the music signal by imposing a characteristic blurring on the sound. 

 

Features :

  • Atlas Z-Plugs 
  • OFC Conductors 
  • PEF Dielectric 
  • Multi-Core Construction 


Atlas Z-Plugs

Atlas' proprietary Z-plug is a low-mass, self-cleaning, solder-free construction speaker plug.

Atlas Z-Plug Technical Diagram


Oxygen Free Copper (OFC)

OFC is produced through an extrusion process which takes place in an oxygen-free-inert-gas atmosphere. This leads to a reduced oxygen content (10 ppm) when compared to Tough Pitch Copper (TPC) and an improvement in conductivity which typically measures in at between 0.5% and 2% greater than TPC. The OFC process therefore produces a much higher quality audio cable than the TPC process. High purity conductors sound clearer than their unprocessed (TPC) counterparts because there are fewer crystal boundaries present to cause signal degradation.

PEF Dielectric 

PVC (Poly Vinyl Chloride) is cheap to produce and, as such, is the most commonly used insulation in AV cables. However, PVC is the worst quality insulation a Hi-Fi or AV signal can encounter as its high loss causes a significant reduction in signal velocity. PVC is better suited to power cables and should be avoided in Hi-Fi and AV signal cables.

Other dielectrics in common use are Polyethylene, Polypropylene and Polytetrafluoride Epoxy (better known as PTFE (Teflon™) or Teflon,) and the new and unique Atlas (PTFE).

HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) has a more close-packed structure compared to its more flexible cousin LDPE (Low Density PE) and excels in its durability.

The table below shows the properties of a selection of dielectrics. Though not used as a dielectric in Atlas' cables, PVC is included for comparison purposes.

  • VOP : 0.761 
  • Outside Diameter : 2.5 x 5.00mm

Termination

We can terminate your speaker cable using either Atlas’ gold-plated 4mm banana/BFA Z-Plugs or spade Plugs. Cables are professionally terminated using a cold-weld method by Future Shop's engineers and guaranteed for 10 years. The plugs are put on using a cold weld method with an official tool supplied by Atlas. Cold-welding does not involve solder and means the plug is crimped around the conductors at 360 degrees' under very high pressure to form an air tight seal which prevents the conductors from oxidising. This forms a better contact than soldering. Furthermore, the conductor is in full contact with the plug, and the plug is in 360-degree contact with the binding post of your equipment which means signal flow is maximised from the cable into your equipment.

How to Order

From the dropdown menus' above, simply select the length of cable, the type of plugs required at the ‘Amplifier end’ and ‘Speaker end’ and click on the 'Add to Basket' button to add the item to your basket. Your cable will be dispatched as soon as it has been made by Future Shop's or the manufacturer’s engineers and has completed the specified burn-in process (if any), subject to Future Shop’s Terms & Conditions and stock availability.

About Atlas Cables Made in United Kingdom

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.
