Atlas Mavros Glass Optical Toslink Optical Inteconnect
Our ‘state of the art’optical cable, engineered around a core of 280 strands of ultra-pure borosilicate glass and precision metal Toslink connectors. Designed to minimise ‘jitter’ (digital noise) the Mavros Optical is intended for ‘high-end’ audio systems where absolute sound quality is the primary consideration, for example between a hi-res media player and a DAC or digital-enabled amplifier.
A true reference class wide bandwidth optical cable.
Toslink (optical) connections have become increasingly popular with the rise of ‘dual purpose’ personal audio devices, many of which are also used as components in high quality home systems. A new generation of high quality streaming audio hardware means Toslink is no longer universally as viewed the‘ poor relation ’in digital interfaces.
Basic ‘bundled’ Toslink cables suffer from a number of issues which degrade the performance of the system. Typically these issues include poor quality core conductor materials, poor matching of conductor to connectors and poor fit of connectors to equipment sockets. These flaws typically combine in very poor ‘jitter’ performance which gives a grainy, tonally bleached sound characteristic of poor quality digital audio.
The Mavros Glass Toslink cable is designed to specifically address these issues, using a reference standard ultra-pure borosilicate glass light-conducting core coupled with precision machined and micro-polished metal connectors to maximise efficient transfer. Extremely precise alignment and fit of the cable components and connectors ensure the cable is optimised for extremely low jitter, resulting in a very low level of noise and wide dynamic range. Mini Toslink adapters are available.
