The ATLAS ELEMENT INTEGRA TT phono cable is a newcomer to the Hi-Fi cable market. As the double T in the name, which stands for TurnTable, suggests, this cable is designed for phono use only.
It is fitted with the company’s excellent bespoke RCA connectors, which contain complex technology that guarantees continuous impedance and low resistance. Also worth noting is that this original design is solder-free and 100% non-magnetic. The quality of these connectors is quite remarkable for a phono cable in this category. Its conductors are made of ultra pure OCC copper (99.9999%) and the screen is made of tightly braided OFC. The cable is designed specifically to provide maximum protection from RFI (radio-frequency interference), which can increase noise levels in cables that are not shielded properly. The Atlas Element Integra phono cable is insulated with polyethylene, which is more commonly found in cables twice its price. It also has fork ground wires made of gold-plated copper. The design of this cable is beyond reproach. All Atlas cables are assembled by hand in Kilmarnock in Scotland.
This phono cable is currently one of the most affordable on the market.
The sound quality is transparent, dynamic and very well-balanced. We also noticed its excellent neutrality, thanks to this remarkable balance. The bass is particularly well-articulated and realistic. The mids are transparent and fairly detailed, with plenty of presence and neutrality and no aggressiveness whatsoever. The excellent tonal balance is also worth a mention.
We were pleasantly surprised by this Atlas Element Integra TT! And there’s not much in the way of competition from other models in its price range! We highly recommend it for use with midrange vinyl turntables and MM cartridges.
