The upgraded cables will be the first to utilize Wireworld's new Silver Tube Connector technology. Designated Atlantis III++, the new cables include their Silver Tube RCA connectors whose design was realized after extensive research. "We have designed our own spade lugs and RCA plugs for years in order to insure a great electrical connection" says David Salz, Wireworld President. "A good cable can't perform well without an outstanding plug". The new RCA plug employs a hollow silver plated oxygen-free copper tube for the center pin, which is said to greatly improve electron flow, especially within the uppermost audible frequency range. The suggested U.S. Retail Price for Atlantis III++ is $112.50 for a 1 meter pair of Interconnects. Speaker cables are priced at $395 for a 2.5 meter pair.

1) Who's going to be the first to make a tubed headphone?
2) Who's going to be the first to try and somehow tube-roll these cables?
3) A zillion to one odds it uses a Sovtek.

Hrm...they're not quite bottle based like I was expecting them somehow to be. The word "tube" is just being used to specify the conductor core config here.

Sorry to bring back such an old thread, but has anybody here tried the Wiredworld Atlantis III+ ICs? What are your impressions on it vs. similarly priced ICs?

Not if your the one selling them. Man, I wish I was selling those cables. I'd be rich.
But,I'd probably feel guilty about preying on all those people. Do you think the money might clear my conscience?

Sounds like these are just plain ole coax cables dipped in a bit of snake oil and given a fancy-schmancy name for effect.

I made coaxial interconnects at least 5 years ago with some Andrews FSJ1-50 and a set of quality RCA's. They cost a lot less than these did.
