The resurgence of vinyl has prompted the introduction of new Atlas tonearm/turntable products to optimise your vinyl playback. Based on our multi-award winning Element Integra RCA, the Element Integra Tonearm cable is available with the choice of either a right-angle (90°) or straight (180°) entry 5 pin connector.
A stereo tonearm interconnect with an open, neutral sound, offering a worthwhile improvement in performance over the factory-supplied cables included with entry-level tonearms.
Benefitting from our ongoing research and development, the Element Tonearm cable is fitted with our Integra non-magnetic RCA plugs and integrated earth tag. The low mass Integra connector features a solder-free, cold-weld connection, all optimised to create a coherent, continuous signal path. The signal conductor is a fully shielded high quality OFC copper, designed and constructed to provide maximum resistance to RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) which can raise noise levels in a poorly shielded cable, particularly important with such sensitive low-level signals as typically generated by a pick-up cartridge.
The 5 pin tonearm plug is precision-turned and hard gold-plated with PTFE (Teflon™) insulation. Cable entry is from either the side (right angle entry) or from the base (straight entry), please specify when ordering.
The Integra is a low-mass, non-compression, constant impedance, self-cleaning, solder-free construction RCA plug.
OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) was developed based on research that sound quality was related to the quality of copper and the processing used during cable manufacture.
A form of LDPE (Low Density Polypropylene) formed with cross-link polymers, stable and used extensively on medium voltage cables.
A pair of identically matched conductors (one for signal path, the other acts as the return conductor) enclosed within an OFC woven screen. Combined with our dd (dual drain) system which avoids distortion of the screening braid during assembly – this can change the RF impedance and therefore the performance of the cable.
