Element Achromatic RCA

Our original design brief for the Element Achromatic RCA was to create a better than average, high quality, entry level interconnect. It seems we succeeded. This latest Element cable has an improved specification – essentially, matching the Element Superior from our previous range, which won numerous awards internationally and proved one of our most successful products.

A stereo interconnect with a neutral, relaxing sound, proven to be an excellent foundation for further system improvements.

Benefitting from our ongoing research and development, the Element is fitted with our Achromatic non-magnetic RCA plug. The low-mass Achromatic connector features a solder-free, cold-weld connection, all optimised to create a coherent, continuous signal path. The signal conductor is a fully shielded high quality OCC copper, designed and constructed to provide maximum resistance to RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) which can raise noise levels in a poorly shielded cable.

The result is a cable which offers a large three dimensional soundstage and fine levels of detail without the artificial brightness which affects many budget cables. The Element Achromatic offers a neutral, relaxing sound and has proven to be an excellent foundation for further system improvements.

The Element range includes other analogue termination options, complementary USB & digital interconnects and speaker cables.

What The Experts Say…

Recent Reviews

The Atlas Achromatic RCA & Z connectors replace the previous Integra RCA and Black/Tin Cobalt Z-plug designs referred to in older reviews.

  • HiFi Plus

    Element Achromatic RCA

    It remains consistent in its ability to keep a soundstage tidy, keep the frequency range smoothly integrated and ensure rhythms and tempos stay on the front foot.

    This lack of artifice makes a good change from any number of alternative cables that seem determined to make an overt mark on the sound of a system.

  • HiFi World 5 Stars

    Element Achromatic RCA

    Most of the sonic advantages of midrange interconnects, at a budget price.

    A fantastic showing for its asking price, the Atlas Element Achromatic does not disgrace itself – even when partnered with some exotic equipment.

  • The Ear Best Buy

    Element Achromatic RCA

    That such a relatively inexpensive cable can perform so well served to make me think again about price/performance and the law of diminishing returns.

    The Elements replaced some far more expensive cables from another well-respected British manufacturer and to be honest, I could detect no loss of sound quality or musicality in the performance.

  • HiFi Choice Recommended

    Element Achromatic RCA

    The sound seems to fill every nook and cranny in the listening room, which again demonstrates just how significantly cables can affect the quality of the soundstage.

    The Element Achromatic RCA is superb value for money and is very much to be recommended.

  • HiFi Choice Recommended

    Element Integra RCA

    We have definition, a wide-open soundstage, oodles of drive and attack…

    Here’s a (cable) loom less concerned about minding its sonic p’s and q’s that has a winning way with textures and timbres and homes in on the emotional core of the music.

  • HiFi Choice

    Element Integra RCA

    After running in, I play a variety of recordings and discover that the Element Integra works extremely well across a wide range of genres.

    The Element Integra represents excellent value for money and so comes highly recommended.

  • What HiFi

    Element Integra RCA

    Three time winner of What HiFi’s Product of the Year in the category ‘Best Analogue Interconnect.’

    Subtle and smooth, there’s nothing to gripe about here – and as a first upgrade, the Element Achromatics come highly recommended.

  • HiFi World

    Element Integra RCA

    Showing a rich presentation and a firmly grounded bass, the Element offers plenty of detail. …the Element offers remarkable value for money.

    Adding 3D depth to the pleasingly arranged and constructed soundstage, the performance added a layered arrangement that was surprising for this price point.
