A worthwhile improvement in performance over the factory-supplied cables included with entry-level tonearms

A stereo tonearm interconnect with an open, neutral sound

The resurgence of vinyl has prompted the introduction of new Atlas tonearm/turntable products to optimize your vinyl playback. Based on our multi-award winning Element Achromatic RCA, the Element Achromatic Tonearm cable is available with the choice of either a right-angle (90°) or straight (180°) entry 5 pin connector.

Benefitting from our ongoing research and development, the Element Tonearm cable is fitted with our Achromatic non-magnetic RCA plugs and Achromaticted earth tag. The low mass Achromatic connector features a solder-free, cold-weld connection, all optimised to create a coherent, continuous signal path. The signal conductor is a fully shielded high quality OFC copper, designed and constructed to provide maximum resistance to RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) which can raise noise levels in a poorly shielded cable, particularly important with such sensitive low-level signals as typically generated by a pick-up cartridge.

The 5 pin tonearm plug is precision-turned and hard gold-plated with PTFE (Teflon™) insulation. Cable entry is from either the side (right angle entry) or from the base (straight entry); please specify when ordering.

Paul Rigby (The Audiophile Man) — 8/10

"The lower noise aspect of this cable is its biggest feature because, from that, all kinds of upper midrange insight and dynamic reach emerges..."

HiFi Choice — Recommended

"The Element Achromatic is a great step up from many supplied tonearm cables... with the cable fed from a moving-coil cartridge and connected to my valve phono stage, I am immediately impressed by the refinement of the sound."
