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.
I find myself treated to a performance that retains all the elegance and refinement that I am accustomed to with this CD.
I have to commend Atlas for this great cable. It stands up to cables costing five times or more the price. It wipes the floor with any budget cables. It’s neutral, rhythmical, detailed and balanced. The soundstage has to be heard to be believed.
Working with the cable, our kit’s performance gained additional dynamics and detailing within a spacious, well-timed and tonally neutral sound.
The music exhibited greater rhythmic bounce and vitality than before. So, all round, it seemed to be a convincing win for the Integra-fitted Equator cables.
