Atlas Cables recently announced its high-end latest additions to its well-respected range of cables.

The Luxe line has arrived with the launch of the Scottish cable cobbler’s flagship Asimi Luxe speaker cable. Referring to the luxurious Nappa leather covering that is hand-stitched the length of the cable, Luxe allows customers to choose from a range of colour and stitching options. This is definitely a plus for those of us that get hassled for exposed cables in the living room.  

Available as standard on the new flagship Asimi Luxe speaker cable and all Asimi interconnect products, the Luxe finish is also available as an upgrade on many other Atlas cables.

The Luxe upgrade is available in four standard Nappa leather finishes; Ebony, Brogue, Ivory and Daytona Red. Completing the finish is two stitch options - Cross stitch and Baseball stitch.  A fully bespoke service is also available, so if a customer is keen to match the leather in their Ferrari, Atlas could manufacture a one-off matching cable.

Atlas Luxe finishing is supplied as standard on the following cables - Asimi Grun speaker cables, Asimi Ultra interconnect cables, Asimi XLR interconnect cables.

Atlas Luxe is offered as an option on the following cables - Mavros Grun speaker cable, Mavros Ultra interconnect cables, Mavros XLR    interconnect cables, Ascent Grun speaker cable, Ascent Ultra interconnect cables, Ascent XLR interconnect cables, Eos Superior power cables.

Asimi Luxe with Grun

The Asimi Luxe has been designed by Atlas to surpass the performance of all previous products and utilises the company’s Grun grounding solution.

In addition to the Luxe finish mentioned above, Asimi Luxe utilises OCC solid silver, the purest conductor available. The cable is made up of six separate OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) solid silver conductors, shrouded by what Atlas says is the most complex dielectric material they've produced to date.

Naturally, equal attention has been paid to either end of the cable. Here you will find solder-free Atlas Transpose deep silver-plated plugs. These allow easy switching between expanding 4mm connectors, spade and Z-plugs, so you have total choice and flexibility in the future.

As far as screening goes, the Asimi Luxe uses a double screen (Alu-Mylar/95% woven) alongside the acclaimed Atlas dual drain system, which, when used in conjunction with Atlas Grun cables, effectively snubs out any RF (Radio Frequency) emission from the cables and reduces the overall system RF load.

The Asimi Luxe with Grun is available in three configurations; Asimi Luxe 2-2,  Asimi Luxe 2-4, Asimi Luxe 4-4. Prices start at $11,580 RRP.
