The best RCA interconnect cable we know how to make.

The Asimi is the only interconnect cable included in HiFi News magazine’s 2017 annual collection of best-reviewed equipment. They described it as ‘a true flagship cable.’

The Asimi Ultra RCA is a state-of-the-art pure silver interconnect designed to be effectively ‘invisible’ in the replay chain and to reveal the entire content and ambience of the recording without any sense of exaggerated detail or brightness.

The original aim of the Atlas Asimi project was to take a completely fresh look at cable design and, where necessary, to develop new techniques to create a cable which would satisfy the most critical listeners for years to come. For this latest generation version, we again went back to basics, re-assessing our existing design & manufacturing processes, exploring different construction methods and experimenting with new materials.

The Asimi Ultra features pure silver conductors, manufactured using the highest-quality ‘Ohno Continuous Cast’ technique for drawing pure silver. Silver cables have a reputation for poor sound quality in some quarters, we believe the Asimi definitively shows the problem is with low grade materials and poor manufacture, resulting in a cable with a coarse grainy structure which compromises sound quality. By contrast, in the manufacture of Asimi, we maximise the silver’s conductivity by ensuring that there is typically one grain in approximately 125 metres of conductor, allowing the signal a continuous unbroken path — in effect, the signal has a faster, cleaner and more direct path to follow.

The cable consists of a pair of conductors, each made up from six bundles of 12 multi-conductor wires, plus a thicker centre wire. This in turn is covered by a continuous copper/Mylar™ electrostatic screen and a silver-plated copper shielding braid, ensuring minimal susceptibility to RF interference and noise.

Theoretically, the best dielectric (insulation layer) is air. Suspending the conductor in free air would be the best method to transfer maximum fidelity, if not very practical. Realistically a dielectric is necessary to protect the conductor, although all conventional dielectric materials impose their own signature distortion and loss on the signal.

We developed a new technique, using a microporous PTFE (Teflon™) tape, which is wound around the core conductors, then covered again and stabilised using a protective FPE (Flexible PolyEthylene) dielectric. Our process allows the required conductor geometry to be maintained and offers greater manufacturing consistency. Termination is with our low mass, high bandwidth, cold-weld XLR or Ultra RCA connectors, both of which have minimal effect on the integrity of the signal.

The result is the best cable we currently know how to make. Asimi, perhaps more than any other product, is responsible for Atlas now being viewed as one of a handful of top manufacturers worldwide.

The Asimi Ultra RCA interconnect. Our analogue masterpiece.

Hi-Fi World — 5 Stars/Outstanding

"If your system warrants it, these cables could be just the combination to take it to another level."

Hi-Fi+

"It’s hard not to be seriously impressed with Atlas’ Asimi and Mavros pairing. These are two of the very, very best... extremely detailed and extraordinarily neutral; all of the things you want from a cable with none of the things you don’t."

Paul Rigby (The Audiophile Man)

"The Asimi Ultra is, frankly, a stunning cable and a candidate for the best interconnect currently on the market."

Hi-Fi News — Editor's Choice

"I was hearing my ‘analogue’ system at its best, enjoying music with no hint of grain pervading the open, atmospheric and fresh-sounding vista before me."

Beauty. Performance. No Compromises.

A distinctive combination of performance, luxury, and pride of ownership.

The Luxe collection features our exclusive combination of precision audio engineering and traditional leather craftsmanship.

To create our hand-made Luxe finishes, we’ve partnered with a world-renowned Scottish specialist in hand-crafted automotive and aerospace interiors.

These cables not only perform superbly, but possess visual and tactile qualities that create a durable, distinctive “heritage” product.

For inspiration, we turned to the luxury automobile industry, where the combination of advanced technology, precision engineering and luxury fit and finish have long found expression.

Processing & Shipping Times

Atlas is distributed in the USA and Canada by VANA Ltd. We keep a small subset of standard lengths in stock in our New York warehouse. Online orders are processed within 2 business days. Orders than can be fully or partly fulfilled from our stock will usually ship within 3 business days. You can also inquire about inventory with your local Atlas Cables dealer. 

Custom orders and lengths that are not currently in stock will be made to order in Scotland and drop-shipped to your door. These typically ship within a week and arrive to their North American destination within 2 weeks.

Note: Fulfillment times for custom may currently be longer due to the COVID pandemic. Please contact us for an estimate if your order is time-sensitive.
