Our "state of the art" optical cable

A true reference-class, wide-bandwidth optical cable.

Engineered around a core of 280 strands of ultra-pure borosilicate glass and precision metal Toslink connectors. Designed to minimize ‘jitter’ (digital noise), the Mavros Optical is intended for high-end audio systems where absolute sound quality is the primary consideration — for example, between a hi-res media player and a DAC or digital-enabled amplifier.

Toslink (optical) connections have become increasingly popular with the rise of ‘dual purpose’ personal audio devices, many of which are also used as components in high quality home systems. A new generation of high quality streaming audio hardware means Toslink is no longer universally as viewed the‘ poor relation ’in digital interfaces.

Basic ‘bundled’ Toslink cables suffer from a number of issues which degrade the performance of the system. Typically these issues include poor quality core conductor materials, poor matching of conductor to connectors and poor fit of connectors to equipment sockets. These flaws typically combine in very poor ‘jitter’ performance which gives a grainy, tonally bleached sound characteristic of poor quality digital audio.

The Mavros Glass Toslink cable is designed to specifically address these issues, using a reference standard ultra-pure borosilicate glass light-conducting core coupled with precision machined and micro-polished metal connectors to maximise efficient transfer. Extremely precise alignment and fit of the cable components and connectors ensure the cable is optimised for extremely low jitter, resulting in a very low level of noise and wide dynamic range. Mini Toslink adapters are available.

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.
