A symmetrical wide-band, dynamic interconnect, designed to be an high performance choice for balanced system configurations.
Ascent XLR offers superb performance with true ‘high-end’ levels of transparency.
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.
NB. Atlas XLR plugs are wired as follows by default:
Pin 1 = Ground; Pin 2 = Hot, Pin 3 = Cold. If you require a different configuration, please contact us. Always check with your equipment manufacturer’s instructions before ordering.
The Atlas XLR combines a lightweight aluminium alloy body with precision-fit OFC/OCC connectors and solder-free construction.
OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) process was developed by Professor Ohno, from the Chiba Institute of Technology, to manufacture a very high purity single grain copper or silver. There are only a handful of companies in the world manufacturing via this method.
PEF (Foamed Polyethylene). The foaming process uses a blowing agent, of which there are two types. Atlas use the gas-foamed method which creates a more inert, consistent and higher quality product.
A pair of identically matched conductors (one for signal path, the other acts as the return conductor) enclosed within a non-conducting screen.
