Hyper DIN to Ultra RCA is a high performance interconnect cable with a wide-band, neutral sound, designed to be a superior option for equipment utilising DIN socketry.
Based on the acclaimed Atlas Hyper Ultra RCA Interconnect, Hyper DIN utilises a shielded four-core construction and the unique Atlas Cables dd ("dual drain") system to ensure excellent immunity to interference and noise.
The conductor in the Hyper DIN cable is a solid core OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) copper core surrounded by multiple bunch-stranded ‘satellite’ conductors of high purity OCC copper. The speed characteristic of analogue cables is determined primarily by the dielectric performance of the insulator applied around the conductor, Hyper’s conductors are encapsulated within a high-efficiency gas foamed Polyethylene dielectric, with excellent immunity to interference and noise.
Termination is via wide-band, low-mass solder-free DIN & Ultra RCA connectors – the fewer discontinuities in the signal path, the lower the level of signal degradation and the better the performance.
Atlas 180° DIN plugs are wired as follows by default: Pin 2 = Ground; Pin 3 = Left, Pin 5 = Right. Altas also offer 4&5 pin variants suitable for Naim equipment. If you are unsure, or require a different configuration, please contact us and remember to always check your equipment manufacturer instructions before ordering.
The Hyper range includes DIN & XLR termination options, digital interconnects plus stereo & bi-wire speaker cables.
Atlas Dual-Drain (dd) System
Normally screened cables suffer from screen distortion when they are prepared for production. (If you've ever wired a plug or connector which uses a screened cable, you've done this yourself, cutting back and probably twisting the screening braid for termination). This distortion of the screen has a measurable impact, effectively changing the impedance and therefore the performance of the cable.
The "dd" configuration is based on a simplified version of the techniques developed for the Atlas top-of-the-range Mavros and Asimi interconnects. Twin symmetrical drain wires (each attached to 180° segments of the plug) are inserted between a 100% copper/Mylar™ foil and screen.
The unique dd system connects the screen effectively to the cable return/plug interface, meaning the cable can be terminated without distorting, twisting or mechanically stressing the precision-laid screen. The benefits are in maintaining a consistent low impedance load to the plug, and a total 360° screening against noise and signal loss caused by RFI (Radio Frequency Interference).
Hyper DIN to Ultra RCA is available in the following lengths:

- 1.00 metres
- 1.50 metres
- 2.00 metres
- 3.00 metres
- Custom lengths available - please call us!
- DIN Plug Connector - Atlas high quality 5 pin DIN plug. Die-cast metal, multi-pole precision audiophile connector.
- OFC Conductor - OFC (Oxygen Free Copper) was developed based on research that sound quality was related to the quality of copper and the processing used during cable manufacture.
- 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.
- 4-Core Construction - A pair of identically matched conductors (one for signal path, the other acts as the return conductor) enclosed within a non-conducting screen.
