Atlas cables of Scotland have launched their new Achromatic plug, RCA and Z, plus a new Element Achromatic RCA Cable.

This new low mass, solderless, cold weld, low contact resistance connectors are the result of years of continuous R&D. The new plugs are available now and will replace existing Integra variants or RCA and Z plugs across the Atlas range.

Achromatic means without colour. That small statement defines the design and sonic characteristics of all Atlas cables. Atlas Cables at its heart want to transfer Audio and Video signal from one component to another with as little interference and or distortion as possible.
