Based on our acclaimed Hyper Ultra RCA I/C, the Hyper dd DIN interconnect utilises a shielded four-core construction and our dd (‘dual drain’) system to ensure excellent immunity to interference and noise.
A high performance cable with a wide-band, neutral sound, designed to be a superior option for equipment utilising DIN socketry.
The conductor in the Hyper DIN cable is a solid core OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) copper core surrounded by multiple bunch-stranded ‘satellite’ conductors of high purity OCC copper, The ‘speed’ characteristic of analogue cables is determined primarily by the dielectric performance of the insulator applied around the conductor, Hyper’s conductors are encapsulated within a high-efficiency gas foamed Polyethylene dielectric, with excellent immunity to interference and noise. Termination is via our wide-band, low-mass solder-free DIN & Ultra RCA connectors – the fewer discontinuities in the signal path, the lower the level of signal degradation and the better the performance.
Atlas dd (‘dual drain’) system: Normally screened cables suffer from screen distortion when they are prepared for production. (If you've ever wired a plug or connector which uses a screened cable, you've done this yourself, cutting back and probably twisting the screening braid for termination). This distortion of the screen has a measurable impact, effectively changing the impedance and therefore the performance of the cable.
NB. Atlas 180° DIN plugs are wired as follows by default:
Pin 2 = Ground; Pin 3 = Left, Pin 5 = Right. We also offer 4&5 pin variants suitable for Naim equipment. If you’re unsure, or require a different configuration, please contact us. Always check with your equipment manufacturer’s instructions before ordering.
The Hyper range includes DIN & XLR termination options, digital interconnects plus stereo & bi-wire speaker cables.
Atlas high quality 5 pin DIN plug. Die-cast metal, multi-pole precision audiophile connector.
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 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.
