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 to the 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 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 - significantly better than the 2.1 achieved by the more typical PTFE insulators which up to now were the best available in a hi-fi or audio visual applications.
‘Transpose’ cold-weld connectors offer a superior connection compared to conventional soldered or screw cable termination, offering greater consistency and reliability. Plus our new modular connector offers maximum flexibility, eg. cable initially supplied with z-plugs can easily be modified to spades or vice versa, helping protect your investment as your requirements change.
The ‘Transpose’ Modular Connector System is available with gold or silver z-plugs or spade connectors.
Asimi can also be terminated with Expanding Rhodium Plugs, as well as OCC Spades.
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 knowledge 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!

Atlas Cables? Who are we?
We are a Company of Great Britain, independent and successful. We design and build products Atlas because we have spent our lives in Industry Hi-Fi audio and video, and we are still excited about our passion.
Apart from a couple of exceptions, all products in the Atlas are planned, designed and produced in East Ayrshire, Scotland.
Scotland has a long tradition of specialists in the design and construction, that have given life to Companies in the Hi-Fi world-famous: this allows us access to a workforce of excellence, with vast experience in the field.
Performance Recognized at International Level
The audio cables , Atlas Cables have received numerous awards and recognitions in more than 30 Nations in which they are distributed. Our products ‘state of the art’, as the award-winning models of cables Mavros and Asimi, are considered to be among the best products on the market, and have received numerous awards in Europe, USA, Canada, Japan and the near East.
This is what he published in the English magazine "HiFi Plus" when she awarded "Product of the Year 2009", our cable signal is "Asimi", pure silver:
It's hard not to be seriously impressed with Atlas’ Asimi and Mavros pairing. These are two of the very, very best. Plus it's good to find a truly UK high-end offering. Atlas is definitely on the high-end map!
If you have used in the past, our cables Hi Fi, you already have an idea of what you can expect. However, if you've never tried before, be prepared to be amazed.
