ASCENT 2.0 - What Hi Fi Sept. 2007 - What Hifi-Award
Well made and finished, the Ascent is an exciting listen. The sound is punchy and driving, with a well defined bottom end underpinning the rest of the frequency range
Atlas Ascent 3.5 Speaker Cable
The Atlas Ascent audiophile cables arrive in two sizes: These contain 2 sq mm or 3.5 sq mm of the finest stranded Ohno Continuous Cast, non deleting copper within a PTFE dielectric. Use the 2.0 where bass is not a prerequsite or the 3.0 if increased bass is desired. The Ascent cables follow on the Atlas tradition and design philosophy. They offer a holographic image with depth, height and width. They are transparent and an ambience that perhaps was never heard before is given to the listener with the Ascent cables. They offer a silent background, high resolution of low level detail and sibilant free, smear free treble. An AWG equivalence table is available via the link below.
Atlas Ascent 3.5 wins the Hifi Review (China) 'Product of the Year 2007' award
Alas Voyager RCA - What HI-FI (Five star) Award, April 2003
"Dynamics are vivid and detail resolution is great for the money, while the bass deserves special mention for its taughtness and power. Simply put, the Atlas Voyager is an excellent cable for the money."
Atlas Voyager all Cu RCA - What HI-FI Award, April 2003
"Let's cut to the chase: this is a great interconnect. Its design oozes quality, while performance doesn't fail to impress. Expressive and insightful, it'll extract every last ounce of detail out of whatever music you play. Its open nature and rhythmic delivery ensures an enjoyable listening experience too. Verdict: Excellent performance, if you're willing to pay the price."
Atlas Navigator RCA - Hi Fi News, January 03. Awards winner 2002
Atlas cables have amassed years of experience in matching up the best OCC (monocrystal) cable to suitable plugs, and now has a consconsidered range of very high performing interconnects and speaker cables. The Navigator with copper OCC plugs allows for a supremely natural-sounding interconnect that neither subtracts from the music flow, nor adds any false detail or unwanted colouration, often mistaken for 'better' high fidelity. An honest, high performance interconnect that lets music out.

Atlas Mavros XLR - Atlas Mavros wins high praise .
Hi Fi news were impressed with the Mavros interconnect and speaker cable. They said: Naturally, Atlas recommends the use of its Mavros interconnects with its Mavros speaker cable. With both in place the system took on a whole new dimension, offering greater space, depth, dynamics and fluidity. These new Mavros cables from Atlas have the uncanny ability to sound fast yet relaxed, detailed yet refined, fluid yet composed. If they were a wine they would be a Brunello di Montalcino. Enjoy!
Robert Kocijan ( www.audiopuls.hr) said:
I am still convinced that there is regardless of the price category, no audio component that (can) boast the satus of the best one, but if there is a combination of the interconnect and the loudspeaker cable which I may recommend without any reservations whatsoever for any system at all - then it would be this one. Does that mean it is also the best? See for yourself.
UHF Magazine in Canada said:
After the pauline Viardot song, Reine pronounced herself delighted, praising whetever this cable turned out to be without reservation (blind test). So did Albert, who however reached for more adjectives."It's beautiful, it's moving, the detail is refined. There's a beautiful balance with the piano, which is warm and limpid." Would this cable turn out to be better than our reference? We had more to come. The Margie Gibson recording confirmed the superiority of this cable. "It's magnificent," exclaimes Reine, "her voice is even more detailed. What a surprise." Albert agreed. "And it's not as though it were an easy recording.," he said. "Everything is well positioned in space, timbres are natural, the voice is clear. Everything is there, it's alive.
