Description

Ascent Ultra S/PDIF by Atlas Cables is a superb true 75-Ohm digital interconnect cable is a superb cable designed to be technically and sonically superior to competing digital cables currently available at similar prices.

Designed to maintain a true 75 Ohm impedance, the central conductor is made from OCC copper, with insulation via an extremely low-loss PEF (Foamed Polyethylene) dielectric. The tightly woven wire mesh together with an aluminium outer foil provides 100% rejection of RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) ensuring the music signal is free from any external noise. The cable is covered by a soft PVC sleeve and finished in a grey woven fabric.

The Ascent digital cable is terminated with Atlas cold-weld connected wideband Ultra RCA plugs. The result is a smooth, uninterrupted signal path which behaves as one continuous entity, with minimal degradation of the signal compared to soldered connections. This is particularly important in a digital cable, connectors which compress the cable can actually alter the cable’s impedance, which can drop below the 75-Ohm specification by typically up to 50%, reducing accuracy of the signal transfer.

Technology

  • Ultra RCA Connector - The Ultra is a wide-band, OCC copper, constant impedance, self-cleaning, solder-free construction RCA plug.
  • OCC Conductor - Ohno Continuous Casting (OCC) process was developed by Professor Ohno, from the Chiba Institute of Technology, to manufacture a very high purity single grain copper or silver. There are only a handful of companies in the world manufacturing via this method.
  • PEF (Foamed Polyethylene) Dielectric - The foaming process uses a blowing agent, of which there are two types. Atlas use the gas-foamed method which creates a more inert, consistent and higher quality product.
  • Coaxial Construction - Central conductor (signal path) surrounded by dielectric material encased within a circular conducting screen which acts as the signal return path.
