3.5mm Connections have become increasingly common with the popularity of miniature audio devices, many of which are frequently used as components in main hi-fi systems. Element Metik 3.5mm stereo interconnect cable produces a neutral, relaxing sound, proven to be an excellent foundation for further system improvements.
Benefiting from ongoing research and development, the Element is fitted with Atlas’ own Metik plugs.
The Metik range of solder-free cold-weld jack plugs brings the class-leading continuous signal path performance of Atlas’ Integra and Ultra RCA connectors to portable device interconnects. Featuring precision copper alloy contacts with a PTFE (Teflon™) dielectric, the Metik plugs provide the highest quality, secure termination for connecting mobile devices where sound quality is paramount. Metik connectors are available in 3.5mm with gold-plating, for a reliable robust connection, enclosed within a light-weight aluminium alloy cobalt finished sleeve.
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.
The signal conductor is a fully shielded high quality OCC copper, designed and constructed to provide maximum resistance to Radio Frequency Interference which can raise noise levels in a poorly shielded cable.
The result is a cable which offers a large three dimensional sound-stage and fine levels of detail without the artificial brightness which affects many budget cables. The Element Integra offers a neutral, relaxing sound and has proven to be an excellent foundation for further system improvements.
