Atlas Cables Hyper AES/EBU Benefits From Mavros Design

Atlas Cables has leveraged the digital experience and design techniques gained in developing its Mavros performance AES/EBU to create its new Hyper cable.

The Hyper AES/EBU from Atlas Cables is the new balanced digital audio cable for the Scottish brand's Hyper range.

Atlas Cables Managing Director, Kevin Kelly, told StereoNET:

We spend a huge amount of time developing new technology for our flagship cables, always with the goal of offering as transparent a cable as possible.  Therefore, it is always a benefit when we can utilise some of that design philosophy further down the range.  

The Hyper AES/EBU cable carries a balanced version of the standard S/PDIF digital audio protocol. Apparently, one of the main challenges is to keep as close as possible to the 110-ohm characteristic impedance specification to minimise cable reflections and the resulting time-based jitter induction. To this end, Atlas chose to use a balanced pair of silver-plated OFC conductors enclosed within a multi-level screen constructed from Aluminium Mylar film and OFC woven braid. Here, both conductors are wrapped individually with what Atlas tells us is a highly efficient microporous PTFE dielectric tape. Finally, the cable is manufactured using a super-soft cotton anti-vibration filler.

The cable is then terminated using the same reliable, low contact resistance balanced XLR plug as Atlas's Mezzo XLR cable.

The Atlas Cables Hyper AES/EBU cable is available in lengths from 0.5m to 3.0m, with prices starting at £185 going up to £385. A 1.5m cable costs £265.
