Anyone with experience/opinion of Atlas Equator biwire?

l like the idea of solid core for the upper & multi-strand for the mid/bass.

Would this go well with Monitor Audio RS1's?

Thanks

hi mate...........as a few on here already know........i am a fan of the atlas sound and design thinking. i have found some of the other cables, in particular chord, have too much impact on the sound/no transparency...........i previously ended up with a mid-heavy sound with muffled bass and treble until i switched. the low and high frequency carriers are high quality and well designed.......and yes i think they would go well with your MAs.........i demo'd the GS60s with the hyper bi-wire (25 pounds/metre) and was impressed ;)

SamS,

thank you for the response & opinion to my post. lt's been hard recently, to get people to comment on 'speaker cable, due to the strong views for & against the use of "specialist" cable. l know the try before you buy method is beneficial, but surely one of the key objectives of this type of forum is to share experiences of different products.

l have had the same problems as you, in that l've used QED & Chord cables that are lively. l know this is compounded by the MA's. However, l like the slighly upfront sound that they produce.

Anyway, not sure if a could afford/jusify spending £25 per metre. The mid price equator is something like £7.50 per metre; have you heard this?

Have not heard the equator bi-wire........but heard good things about it, and also considering the sound you are looking for I think it would match your system quite well. A good dealer will let you "buy" it on the basis that u can return it for a refund within a week or so if you're not happy.........with your set up I think you're right to move away from QED and Chord.......good luck ;)

Yes I have it (Equator 2 biwire) on my MA GR20s and really happy with it. I had an Atlas Equator 2 interconnect but in a moment of eBay weakness bought a Voyager for no real difference IMHO.

Is the Equator biwire the same as what Atlas call the "2 + 1.1"?

The equator biwire is 2 + 1.2 - referring to the square millimetres of low and high frequency conductors respectively

Hello Sam,

yes, l'm familier with the spec' of the Equator biwire, as you state 2 + 1.2. However, l have seen advertised an Atlas biwire cable referred to as 2 + 1.1 & this isn't the basic biwire cable, retailing at £5.49 per metre. Perhaps this is previous older stock?

Yes i see what you mean.........it looks exactly the same as the basic biwire cable.......the polyethylene dielectric is the same, as are the conductors diameter........but the basic cable has an outer diameter of 7mm.........this 5.49/metre cable I believe has a 9mm outer diameter...........this is the only difference as far as I can see
