Atlas Hyper Achromatic Tonearm RCA
Based on Atlas' latest generation Hyper interconnect, the Hyper Achromatic Tonearm cable is available with the choice of either a right-angle (90°) or straight (180°) entry 5 pin connector. The Hyper Achromatic Tonearm cable is an extremely low-noise cable ideally suited to the very low signal output levels of phono cartridges.
Hyper Achromatic Tonearm uses an OCC (Ohno Continous Casting) high purity copper conductor with foamed Polyethylene dielectric, combining to offer a sophisticated, evenly balanced sound which draws you into the musical performance. The cable is fitted with our self-cleaning (just remove and insert it to clean the contact areas) Achromatic RCA plug and integrated spade earth tag. The low-mass Achromatic connector features a solder-free, cold-weld connection, optimised to create a coherent, continuous signal path.
Atlas’s expert electro-mechanical knowledge has led to the innovation of the next generation of RCA plugs. Known as the ‘Atlas Achromatic RCA plug’, Atlas has focused on improving both performance and appearance to create a higher performance starting point for their RCA cables as well as eliminating variability in performance. This has been achieved by refocusing on materials and the assembly processes. Atlas has made 4 key changes with the Achromatic RCA plug. Firstly, the barrel of the Achromatic plug features a high stability ABS material. This is strong, stable and of superlative surface quality.
There is also an improvement to the Achromatic plug’s contact geometry, aiding the contact properties of the plug and the self-cleaning wiping action to ensure contacts are in optimal condition and to maximise signal transmission. The third change Atlas made was around the rifling of the RCA pin. This improvement self-aligns the conductors during the cold weld processing, ensuring a superior stable connection. Finally, there is a reduction in the overall mass of the RCA plug by 8% which has shown to improve signal transmission.
The above changes mean a solder-free, low mass, self-cleaning, recyclable RCA plug with a non-conductive body.
