Following from our work on the fabulous Asimi interconnect, we're now proud to reveal the extraordinary Atlas Asimi speaker cable. Building on the work that led to the original Atlas Mavros designs, the Atlas Asimi adopts the same World-leading construction, but with the added benefits of pure silver conductors, manufactured using the highest-quality technique for drawing pure silver. "Ohno Continuous Cast" or OCC, used in the manufacture of high quality Atlas copper cables, increases conductivity of the material, in this case pure silver, by ensuring that there is less than one grain or signal deleting crystal boundary in about 700 feet of conductor! OCC silver allows the signal to travel through a continuous conductor instead of traversing repeated grain boundaries - in other words, the Asimi signal has a faster, cleaner and more direct path to follow down state of the art pure OCC silver.
The overall size of the Asimi speaker cable provides excellent low frequency definition, a rare attribute in silver cables where due to the high cost, the conductor size is usually compromised. That's why commentators and critics usually say that silver cables offer the listener a very sweet highs but no authority in low frequencies. That certainly doesn't apply to the Asimi with 3.5 sq mm silver conductors.
Our attention was once again focussed on the coating that insulates and protects the silver. The Asimi has these conductors enveloped in our new microporous Teflon dielectric. This new air spaced material improves on the performance of the best solid Teflon or PTFE insulators, by providing a 30% greater signal velocity and better integrity, particularly in the area of high frequency delivery. This is achieved because the new material has a dielectric constant of around 1.3 ~ 1.5 - significantly better than the 2.1 achieved by the more typical PTFE insulators which up to now were the best available in Hi Fi or audio visual applications.
The Asimi speaker cable is available with spade connectors or with our unique Atlas Rhodium plated locking 4mm plug. The Rhodium plated plug holds the substantial cable at an appropriate angle and expands via a rotating knurled knob to lock the plug to the socket in order that the weight of the cable does not cause it to pull loose or slacken from the 4mm speaker socket. The conductors are crimped or cold welded to a ferrule which in turn is firmly held inside the plug by two grub screws.
Each speaker cable is provided with a serial number which is etched onto the plug. Purchasers may then register their five year guarantee safe in the knowlege that their purchase is a genuine Atlas manufactured cable that will perform in exactly the same way as those that have been reported upon in the fabulous Asimi cable reviews.
The Asimi speaker cable is designed to be 'invisible' - delivering performance comparable to no direct connection of the signal. The Asimi is an outstanding product, designed by Atlas to reveal the entire content of the recording. In listening tests, the results are surprising; the Asimi introduces an air and ambience of sound hitherto hidden. Visit an Atlas stockist, listen and prepare to be amazed!
