Mogami vs Atlas cables

I'm currently using mogami 2972 OFC 2.0 Quad core speaker cable.
Any good advise/knowledge, if they'd recommend Atlas Hyper 111 speaker cable as a worth while upgrade from mogami Quad core?

Thanks
Rob.

Mogami vs Atlas cables

The only way to be sure is to try it, but my gut instinct is no. Assuming you are using the Mogami with the two pairs in parallel it has a greater CSA and though I have not tried this particular Atlas cable I tried a few when I lived near a dealer that offered them and was never very impressed. Conversely your current cable has many fans here and elsewhere including some who have replaced far more expensive cables with it.

mogami quad

Using Mogami quad just now between a recently aquired Densen B330+ and WB Arcs/ Epos es 22s.
Normally I would use Exposure or Naim Nac A5 cable. Always been great with my normal Exposure and Dynavector amps. Not so the Densen. Not a happy match at all. Just too much in my face. Lots of wincing
I dug out the mogami. 2X6 meter runs. Use bi wire. That fitted ( and also a Kimber classic power cord) , the Densen sounds how it should at the price. Top class.

Well, I used NAC A5 cable with my Naim kit. I sold all my Naim setup, 72/140 CD3.5 moved over to Densen full kit Beat B400+ CD B200 B300xs... Loved it! . Big improvement! So then changed my NAC A5 cable - to Kimber PR8, which worked better with the Densen setup.

Ive since moved from Kimber speaker cable to mogami Quad Core, Which I found again much easier to enjoy!

Just wondering if the Atlas Hyper 111 cable is worth investigating further?????
Seems peeps love mogami Quad core here too.

I moved to 2972 getting on for a decade ago and have since lost all interest in loudspeaker cable. It's a sensible spec, durable, easy to work with and sounds perfectly fine - it will see me out for the rest of my life!

So 2972 is 4 core. I assume you pair up the cores? Is there some advantage to this over 2 core or is it just a case of it being generally robust and flexible studio cable? I assume the latter.

Wiring a quad core cable pairing diagonal conductors is supposed to give a lower inductance IIRC.

The Mogami didn't seem to work very well with my B330. It sounded bit "phasey." Chord Epic Twin was better.

That's surprising???!! My local Densen dealers only use mogami speaker cables with Densen setups - when demonstrating to customers in their dem room .. Never "phasey" sounding.. :-/ Never heard the Chord Epic Twin.

Not that kind of phasey. It was more a sense of congestion.

Are you an Audio Council customer Rob? Dave has waxed lyrical about his new mains block (cant remember the name) the Atlas mains and speaker cable so I had a listen yesterday whilst there to order my new Densen 440xs CD player. The mains block and cables provided the biggest improvement. I was taken by surprise as I've been disappointed by esoteric mains bits in the past. The speaker cable also appeared to be an improvement over our Mogami. Cleaner, especially in the bass and treble without losing any of the Mogami strengths. It's only a matter of time before I buy them. If you haven't had a listen book a dem. The caveat is make sure you have 1400 to spend first :-).
