The latest generation Hyper dd XLR interconnect offers a sophisticated, evenly balanced sound which draws you into the musical performance.

Balanced connector with optimum audio performance via ‘trickle-down’ dd technology.

The Atlas Hyper dd is constructed with four central multi-core conductors of high purity OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) copper encapsulated within a low-loss foamed Polyethylene dielectric, with excellent immunity to interference and noise, making it ideally suited to longer cable runs. The cable is terminated with our low-mass solder-free XLR plugs.

NOTE: Atlas XLR plugs are wired as follows by default: Pin 1 = Ground; Pin 2 = Hot, Pin 3 = Cold. If you require a different configuration, please contact us. Always check with your equipment manufacturer’s instructions before ordering.

Normally screened cables suffer from screen distortion when they are prepared for production. (If you've ever wired a plug or connector which uses a screened cable, you've done this yourself, cutting back and probably twisting the screening braid for termination). This distortion of the screen has a measurable impact, effectively changing the impedance and therefore the performance of the cable.

Our ‘dd’ configuration is based on a simplified version of the techniques we developed for our top-of-the-range Mavros and Asimi interconnects. Twin symmetrical drain wires (each attached to 180° segments of the plug) are inserted between a 100% copper/Mylar™ foil and screen. The unique dd system connects the screen effectively to the cable return/plug interface, meaning the cable can be terminated without distorting, twisting or mechanically stressing the precision-laid screen. The benefits are in maintaining a consistent low impedance load to the plug, and a total 360° screening against noise and signal loss caused by RFI (Radio Frequency Interference).

Atlas use cold-weld terminations wherever possible, including our current generation ‘dark Chrome’ XLR connectors. By reducing the number of materials and break points in the signal path, our objective is to minimise discontinuity and loss in the signal path, resulting in more consistent construction and improved audio performance.

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.
