Atlas Equator 2.0 provides for most system types. It is available as a 2 sq mm cable(Equator 2.0) or a 3 sq mm cable (Equator 3.0) or in the form of a bi-wire Equator cable using 2.sq mm for the bass and two conductors of 1.2 sq mm for the treble. Unlike its less expensive siblings, the Equator series use a polypropylene dielectric thats far more efficient than PVC or polyethylene, and which gives greater signal velocity or speed thereby maintaining improved phase stability. The conductors are contained in a cotton yarn in order to reduce microphony and the outer sheath is in a tasteful pearl white finish.
The Equator cables give an assured fatigue free performance with extended and sweet treble and a satisfying bass. Altogether these cables offer an effortless sound that provides a holographic sound stage with stereo width, height and depth that involve the listener. Buy the 2.0 sq mm for good balanced systems, the 3.0 sq mm to increase bass and the BiiWire for improved high frequency performance.
Atlas BiiWire cables are technically advanced, employing conductors of different sizes that are matched for their characteristics. The H.F. (high frequency) signal is sent down a pair of solid conductors. That’s because the occupation area for the high frequency signal is greater in a solid conductor than it is in a stranded conductor therefore the solid conductor is able to extend the high frequency signal upwards into improved smear free treble.
The bass conductor is a multi stranded design in order to introduce a greater cross section of metal. That’s because the L.F. (low frequency) signal occupies the centre of the conductor. It follows larger conductors are able to extend the low frequency signal into improved bass.
