The Atlas Element Asymmetrical interconnect employs a braided copper and aluminium foil giving a 100% screen to provide rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI), it employs high quality Oxygen Free Copper (OFC) for it's conductors together with a low loss porous polyethylene dielectric (PEF).
Following from Atlas' research and development programme, the Element is fitted with they're entirely new Integra non magnetic RCA plug. The plug benefits from a solder free, cold weld interface between the pure OFC copper co-axial stranded conductors and the plug for both the going and return signals. Being free of solder, another barrier to the free-flow of the signal has been removed.
The Integra plug uses two conjugate brackets. These brackets grip the cable without compressing it. Compressing a coaxial causes the cable to alter its impedance from 75 Ohms thereby causing deletions. In a digital interface the impedance can drop to some 40 Ohms which causes reflections and jitter. The Integra plug lets more information through.
The Integra Plug uses a non magnetic ABS cover which may avoid a saturation in the return leg at an RCA plug's metal sheath if it's in the signal path. The integra sheath facilitates a direct barrier free return signal path with less interference. The Element coaxial cable employs one woven screens for rejection of radio frequency interference.
Finally the Element with the Integra plug is provided with a unique seriel number and a five year guarantee. Buyers can be confident that they've purchased a genuine Atlas cable, researched, developed and produced in Scotland and made from the finest materials available.
The improved Element Integra is an entry level audio interconnect for discerning music lovers. Like all Atlas interconnects, it provides a huge sound-stage together with a smooth delivery. It avoids the over bright and irritating sound so often a feature of similarly priced interconnects. Rather in common with all Atlas interconnects, irrespective of price, it offers the listener a sophisticated and relaxing sound with no artificial highs or lows and most importantly, it offers the user fantastic value for money. Just look at the construction, the OCC copper, the quality asymmetrical construction, and the conjugate bracket Integra plug; there's nothing else quite like the Element Integra.
I use these for my record player (SL1210GR) in place of Shawline which picked up hum from the mains cable. These don't and sound as good.

I really have been impressed by this cable. It offers music with neutrality and precision without adding or removing anything. Emotion, detail, scene, subtlety are present in equal parts. For the price I consider this cable unbeatable for the performance it provides, now I understand why it has won so many awards, I recommend it to anyone who has a good HiFi system such as Marantz pm6006-cd6006 or something like that. And no less important is the attention and service received from Analogue Seduction that have been impeccable as always.
The relationship between price/performance is really good. Difficult to obtain more of an audible performance over other non so well manufactured cables for such an entry level cable by Atlas standards. Hear it before making a decision on improving the sound of your hi-fi system.
As already stated these cables are a well kept secret, let's keep it that way so we reap the benefits of a fantastic sounding and well made cable
Cavo neutro che lascia passare ottimo suono. Vivamente consigliato per chi cerca l'equilibrio e la naturalezza dal proprio impianto. Dopo averlo installato i difetti del mio impianto sono scomparsi.

After connecting the Atlas Element Integra the sound opened like if I've opened a window over the music. Everything is excellent about these cables. Solid bass, clear midrange and soft high frequencies. I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

The cable looks good. Connectors are easy to plug in but have good grip. Just a good solidly made IC that doesn't cost the earth.
Very good sound, cheap price and well built
