Hyper dd XLR to Z-plug

The Hyper dd XLR – Z Plug cable has been created to exploit the Chord Hugo TT2’s ability to drive loudspeakers.

Designed specifically for Chord Electronic’s Hugo TT2, this Atlas Hyper 3.5 cable is available with an XLR termination on the source end combined with Z-plugs, allowing a direct connection from the DAC to your speakers. Utilising the Hugo TT2’s XLR output power of 18W RMS into 8Ohms offers a compact solution to directly drive a surprisingly wide range of speakers. Ideal for a very high quality desktop/nearfield listening setup, but perfectly suited in longer lengths to being used in a larger scale audio sytem.

All Atlas cables are designed to impose as little of any inherent character as possible, achieved through careful selection of materials and construction methods, but we feel this latest generation Hyper cable is exceptionally transparent, allowing the equipment characteristics to be conveyed intact.

The cable employs conductors comprising 72 0.25mm² high-purity OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) strands encapsulated within a carefully selected high-efficiency PTFE (Teflon™) dielectric coating. The resultant conductor is embedded within an anti-vibration filler and finished in the Hyper gloss black sleeve.

Default termination is with the Atlas Tin Cobalt finished metal Z plug. This Aluminium alloy Z plug body has the same non magnetic qualities of its very popular black ABS brother as well as it’s insulating qualities (plug body to plug body). Also available terminated with our cold-weld high quality OFC spades or our Transpose Modular Termination System. Transpose options include Z-plugs or OFC spades in gold or silver.

Atlas use cold-weld terminations wherever possible, including our current generation ‘dark Chrome’ XLR connectors. By reducing the number of materials and break points in the signal path, our objective its to minimise discontinuity and loss in the signal path, resulting in more consistent construction and improved audio performance.

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