Hyper dd Duo Integra RCA

This recent addition to our popular Hyper family introduces our new ‘Duo’ configuration which uses a ‘balanced core’ topology within a single-shielded outer cover (rather than separate cables for left & right channels).

Optimum audio performance via ‘trickle-down’ dd technology.

The Atlas Hyper dd is constructed with four central multi-core conductors of high purity OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) copper encapsulated within a low-loss foamed Polyethylene dielectric. The cable is terminated with our low-mass solder-free Integra RCA plugs. Hyper dd Duo is the perfect cable for use where space is a premium, such as within equipment cabinets.

Atlas dd (‘dual drain’) system: Normally screened cables suffer from screen distortion when they are prepared for production. (If you've ever wired a plug or connector which uses a screened cable, you've done this yourself, cutting back and probably twisting the screening braid for termination). This distortion of the screen has a measurable impact, effectively changing the impedance and therefore the performance of the cable.

Our ‘dd’ configuration is based on a simplified version of the techniques we developed for our top-of-the-range Mavros and Asimi interconnects. Twin symmetrical drain wires (each attached to 180° segments of the plug) are inserted between a 100% copper/Mylar™ foil and screen. The unique dd system connects the screen effectively to the cable return/plug interface, meaning the cable can be terminated without distorting, twisting or mechanically stressing the precision-laid screen. The benefits are in maintaining a consistent low impedance load to the plug, and a total 360° screening against noise and signal loss caused by RFI (Radio Frequency Interference).

The Hyper range includes DIN & XLR termination options, digital interconnects plus stereo & bi-wire speaker cables.

    Hyper dd Duo Integra RCA

    …The Hyper dd Duo is a class act that is very much at home across a wide range of musical genres.

    Hans Zimmer’s ‘Wheel Of Fortune’ demonstrates just how well it handles the complexities of a full orchestra. The music has tremendous presence and power in my room.
