Atlas Hyper Metik 3.5mm to Integra RCA

Analogue 3.5mm interconnect based on our acclaimed Hyper interconnect.

3.5mm outputs are ever more popular with the huge increase of ‘dual purpose’ personal audio devices and portable DACs. Many of these devices are also used in sophisticated home audio systems, but until recently, there have been few genuine audiophile interconnects with 3.5mm connectors suitable for high performance audio.

The Hyper metik features four central multi-core conductors made up of two identical pairs of OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) wires within a single-shielded outer cover (rather than separate cables for left & right channels).

The Metik range of solder-free cold-weld jack plugs brings the class-leading continuous signal path performance of our Integra and Ultra RCA connectors to portable device interconnects. Featuring precision copper alloy contacts with a PTFE (Teflon™) dielectric, the Metik plugs provide a high quality, secure termination for connecting mobile devices where sound quality is paramount.

Conventional jack plugs typically suffer degraded signal integrity,principally by using low-grade components, soldered connections and/or screw fixings which distort the cable dielectric (insulation), which produces measurable changes in the cable’s performance. RCA connectors are our low-mass Integra phono plugs.

Metik connectors are available in 3.5 & 6.3mm stereo and 2.5mm mono gold-plated options enclosed within a light-weight aluminium alloy cobalt finished sleeve.

Careful Matching
Monday, 2 November 2020  | 

I initially bought this to replace a QED Reference Quartz Optical cable. The cable was running from a digital/spdif out port to an Audiolab Mdac+. The results were disappointing: foggy/masked sound compared to the clarity of the QED and I quickly moved back to the original cable.
Out of interest I then moved it to the optical out port on my Roksan Caspian M2 Balanced CD player and ran it to the back of a Naim Dac V1. My goodness. Blew me away with astonishing levels of transparency, focus and attach. Expressive midrange, exemplary upper frequencies and rigorous bass. Fabulous.
The lesson so far has been that it needs careful matching to get the best from it.
