Atlas today has launched the new Ailsa Achromatic speaker cable. The Ailsa product line is pitched between the Hyper and Mavros ranges to offer a further choice for medium to high-end cable users. The speaker cable complements the Ailsa Achromatic interconnect launched last year.
The Ailsa Achromatic speaker cable carries the Achromatic feature from the Hyper speaker cables, reviewed here last year, which offers a lower mass non-magnetic cold weld plug design to improve signal quality. The Ailsa Achromatic speaker cable consists of two 3mm2 OCC multi-strand copper conductors that are wrapped in a PTFE insulator, which is further wrapped in an extruded outer layer to maintain conductor symmetry. The cable is then packed with an anti-vibration cotton filler before being finished with a grey gloss outer jacket.
OCC is the Ohno Continuous Cast conductor technology used by Atlas Cables so successfully.
Kevin Kelly, Managing Director of Atlas Cables says:
The Ailsa speaker cable bridges the gap between our Hyper and Mavros range, offering our customers even more choice. We have finally managed to successfully trickle down our OCC/microporous PTFE technology and included it in the Ailsa design, giving us a truly breath-taking performance for the money. We have been constantly surprised when conducting listening tests as to just how precise the Ailsa speaker cable is, given its rather modest price compared to many high-end rivals.
Ailsa Achromatic speaker cable is available in pre-packaged lengths with Achromatic Z (4mm banana style) or S (spade) connections
