Equator Achromatic RCA

A consistent award winner for over a decade (winning What HiFi’s Best Interconnect Award 4 times), the latest generation Equator Achromatic builds on the strengths of its predecessors to deliver an even greater price/performance ratio.

Sophisticated, involving sound and exceptional value for money.

The Equator Achromatic is of course fitted with our Achromatic non-magnetic RCA plug. The low-mass Achromatic connector features a precision calibrated cold-weld connection, creating a coherent, continuous signal path. The signal conductor is now high purity OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) copper encased with a superbly constructed double screen to provide maximum resistance to RFI (Radio Frequency Interference), which can raise noise levels in a poorly shielded cable.

The result is a beautifully balanced interconnect which offers a large three dimensional soundstage and fine levels of resolution without any sense of exaggerated ‘detail’ which is superficially impressive but quickly fatiguing to listen to.

The Equator range includes subwoofer, interconnect, streaming and speaker cables.

    An excellent review from HiFi Choice, concluding ”These interconnects transmit consistently sophisticated music and represent excellent value for money.”

    I find myself treated to a performance that retains all the elegance and refinement that I am accustomed to with this CD.

  • HiFi Pig

    Equator Integra RCA

    And WOW! I’m immediately impressed with what I hear. A beautifully succulent smooth sound, ‘Glamour Profession’ bounces along with great verve and rhythm.

    I have to commend Atlas for this great cable. It stands up to cables costing five times or more the price. It wipes the floor with any budget cables. It’s neutral, rhythmical, detailed and balanced. The soundstage has to be heard to be believed.

    In short, there’s nothing to dislike here, if you want a fine second-upgrade interconnect, look no further than this Atlas.

    Working with the cable, our kit’s performance gained additional dynamics and detailing within a spacious, well-timed and tonally neutral sound.

    Equator Integra RCA

    And in the great scheme of interconnect(ed) things, the Equator is very fine indeed – you’ll not find much at the price that comes close in terms of musicality.

    The music exhibited greater rhythmic bounce and vitality than before. So, all round, it seemed to be a convincing win for the Integra-fitted Equator cables.
