Unique to Atlas, the Mavros symmetrical interconnect uses a new microporous PTFE dielectric together with OCC copper conductors which are manufactured using the highest-quality technique for drawing copper. "Ohno Continuous Casting" or OCC has one grain in about 700 feet of conductor, so the audio signal travels through a continuous conductor instead of traversing grain boundaries. The copper itself is of the highest purity; equivalent to 7N or 99.999997% pure.
The new microporous insulation with a dielectric constant between 1.3 and 1.5 improves on ordinary PTFE and provides up to 85% greater VOP (velocity of propagation). That speed introduces better musical integrity throughout the audio spectrum and especially in the area of high frequency delivery. The music has more pace and the presentation is holographic. Speaker boxiness disappears as the Mavros offers listeners an ambience and a relaxed yet dynamic all engulfing sound that truely replicates a concert hall experience.
The RCA plugs are the unique Atlas non compressing, solder free Ohno Continuous Cast types. Here is the exploded version of the plug:
The new Atlas Mavros interconnect was designed to be technically and sonically superior to other interconnect cables currently available at similar prices.
Do you dare try this technically advanced cable in your system? If so get ready to be amazed because nothing will prepare you for the staggering improvement you'll hear!
The Atlas Mavros demands to be heard with and used with the Mavros speaker cable in order that the advantages of increased signal velocity can be appreciate and that the higher band-width signal isn't strangled by a speaker cable that's unable to carry all the information provided to it without deletion.

We needed only the shortest of discussions before we decided to leave the Mavros cables right where they were, to become a part of the Alpha system.
