Atlas Hyper Streaming Ethernet Cable
Digital theory suggests that data is nothing more than a sequence of 'ones & zeros' and all that is required of a cable is to transfer data around the network. While that's essentially true, it emerges as an overly simplistic perspective when considering high high-resolution low-level signals.
While the OSI 7 layer Ethernet protocol specification covers packet switching, error correction, timing and end-to-end transmission, as in any audio cable there are areas where the selected materials, construction techniques, connectors and termination methods can all audibly impact the signal integrity.
Basic 'eBay-style' stranded, unshielded Ethernet 'patch' cables typically sound grainy and crude in HiFi applications, with high levels of digital background 'noise' degrading audio quality. Such cables will typically fail ISO/TIA compliance testing standards and offer somewhat unpredictable performance.
Atlas streaming cables benefit from the expertise and experience gained with the continuing development and evolution of Atlas' high-speed video and USB audio cables. Atlas utilise high-purity solid-core OFC conductors with very stable dielectric materials with polycarbonate shielded plugs in a precision-calibrated production process which pays particular attention to minimising signal errors. Fewer errors means the correction circuitry in the receiving device has less work to do - a high level of error correction can itself introduce more nose - extracting and processing the data.
The practical, audible result is a cleaner audio signal with a wider dynamic range and less of the 'glare' which typically results from high levels of unwanted 'noise' in the signal data.
