RCA interconnect cable based on the same design objectives and manufacturing techniques developed for our Asimi range, utilising copper rather than silver conductors.
The Mavros Ultra RCA has been designed from the ground up to complement the performance of ‘high-end’ audio systems by achieving maximum signal transfer with minimum susceptibility to spurious interference.
The Mavros Ultra RCA uses the very highest quality ‘6N’ (99.99997% purity) copper manufactured using the OCC ‘Ohno Continuous Cast’ technique. Cables manufactured with lower grade materials and poor manufacture typically have a coarse, grainy structure which compromises sound quality. In the manufacture of Mavros, we maximise the copper’s conductivity by ensuring that there is typically one grain in approximately 125 metres of conductor, allowing the signal a continuous unbroken path –in practice, the signal has a faster, cleaner and more direct path to follow.
The cable consists of a pair of conductors, each made up from six bundles of 12 multi-conductor wires, plus a thicker centre wire. This in turn is covered by a continuous copper/Mylar™ electrostatic screen with copper shielding braid, ensuring minimal susceptibility to RF interference and noise.
Theoretically, the best dielectric (insulation layer) is air. Conventional dielectric (insulation) materials impose their own signature distortion and loss on the signal. Our technique uses a microporous PTFE (Teflon™) tape, which is wound around the core conductors, then covered again and stabilised using a protective FPE (Flexible PolyEthylene) dielectric. This process maintains the required conductor geometry, and bestows greater manufacturing consistency. Termination is with ourlow-mass, high bandwidth, cold-weld Ultra RCA or XLR connectors, both of which have minimal effect on the integrity of the signal.

Connector Type - Ultra RCA
The Ultra is a wide-band, OCC copper, constant impedance, self-cleaning, solder-free construction RCA plug.
Conductor Material - OCC Copper
OCC (Ohno Continuous Casting) 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. Explore More
Dielectric Material - PEF
PEF (Foamed Polyethylene). 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.
CONSTRUCTION - 4 core + screen dd
Individually matched conductors (one pair for signal path, the other pair acts as the return conductor) enclosed within a protective woven screen. Combined with our dd (dual drain) system which avoids distortion of the screening braid during assembly, which can change the RF impedance of the cable and adversely affect performance.
