A consistent award winner for over a decade (winning What HiFi’s Best Interconnect Award 4 times), the latest generation Equator Integra builds on the strengths of its predecessors to deliver an even greater price/performance ratio.
Sophisticated, involving sound and exceptional value for money.
The Equator Integra is of course fitted with our Integra non-magnetic RCA plug. The low mass Integra connector features a precision calibrated cold-weld connection, creating a coherent, continuous signal path. The signal conductor is now high purity OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) copper encased with a superbly constructed double screen to provide maximum resistance to RFI (Radio Frequency Interference), which can raise noise levels in a poorly shielded cable.
The result is a beautifully balanced interconnect which offers a large three dimensional soundstage and fine levels of resolution without any sense of exaggerated ‘detail’ which is superficially impressive but quickly fatiguing to listen to.
The Equator range includes a subwoofer interconnect and speaker cables.
The Integra is a low-mass, non-compression, constant impedance, self-cleaning, solder-free construction RCA plug.
(OCC) Ohno Continuous Casting copper was developed based on research that sound quality was related to the quality of copper and the processing used during cable manufacture.
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.
Central conductor (signal path) surrounded by dielectric material encased within a circular conducting screen which acts as the signal return path.
