What The Experts Say…

  • HiFi Choice Recommended

    Hyper Achromatic Bi-Wire Speaker Z

    The Hyper Achromatic Z does a fantastic job of conveying all the subtle nuances of both instruments.

    The Hyper Achromatic noticeably notches up the clarity and realism of all the pieces I play, and is certainly a high performing cable worthy of any decent audio system.

  • The Ear Best Buy

    Hyper Achromatic Bi-Wire Speaker Z

    I really liked the look and feel of these – they have a premium feel and finish to them that is belied by their relatively modest price.

    The Hypers more than held their own against their predecessors and made long listening sessions both enjoyable and fatigue-free.

  • HiFi & Music Source

    Hyper Achromatic Bi-Wire Speaker Z

    This all points to improved dynamics and the more I listen, the greater punch I hear…

    the updated Hyper speaker cable range represents a significant stride forward, and it’s impressive to see the advances that Atlas has managed to bring to the range.

    Element 2.0

    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 World 5 Globe Review

    Asimi ‘Grun’ Luxe

    OUTSTANDING – amongst the best.
    VERDICT – If your system warrants it these cables could be just the combination to take it to another level.

    The Atlas Asimis are expensive but they are superbly constructed and, most importantly, have a gravitas few others can match.

    Asimi Luxe Ultra RCA & Speaker Cables

    While the Asimi cables are excellent, they are truly transformed in sonic terms when the ‘Grun’ (ground) cables are added.

    The fact that various types of termination are offered for those Grun cables means that you can experiment to see what variant works best for your hi-fi system to hone the cables in order to get the very best from them. The end result is quite delightful as the Grun system produces a balanced sound quality, rich in clarity.

  • What HiFi 5 Stars

    Equator 2.0

    These nicely built speaker cables are an easy and affordable way to boost your system’s performance.

    …the increase in clarity and punch when using the Atlas Equator 2.0 over budget alternatives should be lauded, especially at this relatively affordable price.

  • HFN Editor's Choice

    Asimi ‘Grun’ Luxe

    HiFi News give our Asimi Luxe speaker cable an Editor’s Choice award, concluding “There’s no veil-lifting, jaw-dropping Damascene moment but you will find its ease-of-listening, its resolution of subtle details and dynamic shading creep up on the corners of your consciousness.”

    While many exotic cables will illuminate the musical soundstage, Atlas’ Asimi Luxe is far subtler.

  • HFN Editor's Choice

    Ascent ‘Grun’

    HiFi News are impressed with the new generation Ascent speaker cable, concluding “…as an upgrade into the realm of top-end cables, Ascent makes a very convincing case for itself.”

    The ‘Grun’ earthing option is certainly worth trying – heard here as a slightly darker but arguably ‘tighter’ and more compact overall sound.

  • HiFi World

    Element 1.25

    At this price point, the Atlas Element easily sits within the ‘excellent’ category.

    The Element controls wayward frequencies, ensures discipline, and provides a rich, warm presentation.

  • What HiFi 5 Stars

    Equator 2.0

    Natural, even-handed and with good dynamic ability – this speaker cable is a must-hear…

    And the Equator doesn’t buckle, offering instead a natural, measured sound that, while at times understated, still brims with detail and nuance.

  • HiFi Pig

    Equator Bi-wire

    The Atlas Equator Bi-Wire is the real deal, it has its qualities evenly spread across its abilities. (Equator Bi-wire reviewed as part of a complete Atlas-wired system).

    It gives a good amount of detail in the upper registers and it excels in timing, rhythm and its powerful presentation. The upper mids and treble are all well produced, nothing gets harsh or sibilant. The slight loss and fuzz of fine detail within the mid to low bass isn’t glaring and is only bettered by cables several times its cost.

  • HiFi News

    Hyper 2.0

    …in fact everything sounded just right in the test system, with great image projection and an even tonal balance.

    the cable’s balanced and even character brought out the instruments’ timbre. Percussion was powerful with a deep, taut bass while the brass had lifelike ‘rasp’ when the occasion demanded.

  • HiFi Choice

    Ascent 3.5

    After running in, I tested the cables with a variety of music and they are really excellent.

    The imaging is superb and the sound is open and transparent. There is no sibilance to high frequencies and low-level detail is clear. Recommended even at the high price.

  • HiFi News

    Mavros

    These Mavros cables from Atlas have the uncanny ability to sound fast yet relaxed, detailed yet refined, fluid yet composed.

    Naturally, Atlas recommends the use of its Mavros interconnects with its Mavros speaker cable. With both in place the system took on a whole new dimension, offering greater space, depth, dynamics and fluidity. These new Mavros cables from Atlas have the uncanny ability to sound fast yet relaxed, detailed yet refined, fluid yet composed.

  • HiFi Plus

    Mavros

    …extremely detailed and extraordinarily neutral; all of the things you want from a cable with none of the things you don’t.

    It’s hard not to be seriously impressed with Atlas’ Asimi and Mavros pairing. These are two of the very, very best. Plus, it’s good to find a truly UK high-end offering. Atlas is definitely on the high-end map!

  • HiFi Choice

    Mavros

    The Mavros produces a natural perspective on music, sounding authoritative and open, offering fine insight without appearing clinically detailed.

    Once run-in, it gives a balanced presentation that’s exceptionally easy on the ear.

  • HiFi World

    Mavros

    One of the truly great cables currently on the market. This is the best set of speaker cables that I’ve ever heard.

    A quite astonishing speaker cable that provides an open, clear and dynamic performance.

  • HiFi News

    Asimi

    If you can justify the cost within the context of your system, Asimi silver cables are among the finest money can buy.

    This speaker cable sounds highly transparent with powerful, textured bass and brilliant treble with not a hint of grain despite its explicit etching of fine detail. Highly revealing, it will ensure the best possible performance from system components and is fully deserving of reference status.

  • HiFi Plus

    Asimi

    This sense of physical presence and boldness marks it out from the crowd, but so does the complete absence of grain or glare…

    Asimi is undeniably very special, though not necessarily in quite the way I had expected. Sonically it is a fine grain cable, in some respects very like Nordost Valhalla, with which it shares some properties, though its construction could hardly be more different. It has real heft and weight…

NB. We continuously refine and develop our products. Some reviews may relate to previous versions of the current product.
