What Hi-Fi? Verdict

If you like to explore the subtleties of a track, this could be the cable for you


  • +

    Attention to musical detail


  • -

    An over-analytical listening experience

If you like to go through songs with a fine-toothed comb, searching out every little nuance, then the Atlas Navigator could be for you. It's a very insightful, revealing interconnect that takes great pleasure in drawing your attention to all the subtleties in a track.

While this ability is to be applauded, your listening experience changes from emotional to analytical. It also doesn't quite have the fluidity and get-up-and-go of interconnects like Russ Andrews' Crystal Cu.
