Nordost’s entry level cable ranges are perfect examples of quality cabling set at an affordable price range. The Leif family uses scientifically proven methods and technology derived from the development of our Valhalla and Odin ranges and applies their basic principles to create cables which evoke dynamic, low-loss and realistic performances from even modest components and Loudspeakers.
Leif cables are constructed using silver-plated, OFC solid core conductors, which form the basis of Nordost’s great sound. The conductors are then treated with Nordost’s innovative precision FEP extrusion process, where each conductor is individually enclosed in FEP insulation. This technique greatly reduces the dielectric properties of the cables in order to increase signal speeds and accuracy in signal transfer.
To build upon this foundation, Leif cables are designed with a mechanically tuned construction that optimizes the dimensions and spacing of conductors to reduce dielectric effects even further.
Finally, the Leif family benefits from the use of proprietary connectors, which provide a sonically consistent connection and complete Nordost’s impressive first tier of cables.
Nordost’s Blue Heaven range is the third tier in our entry-level, Leif family. A reference amongst affordably priced audio cables, the Blue Heaven range has made a big impact on music enthusiasts and has been converting hifi novices into audiophiles for years.
Blue Heaven cables incorporate Nordost’s core cable design, including silver-plated, solid core conductors and their innovative FEP extrusion process as well as integrating patented Micro Mono-Filament technology in its power and digital interconnect cables. This combination provides a near perfect virtual air dielectric with excellent mechanical damping. Thanks to such precise and advanced engineering, listeners are able to enjoy both the subtle nuances and explosive dynamics captured in a recording that would otherwise be lost in transmission.
Our extensive Blue Heaven range allows consumers to maintain a consistent sonic signature and design philosophy throughout an entire system. Whether you are seeking audio, video, personal or portable cables, Blue Heaven has the solution. Only Blue Heaven cables will enable you to reap this caliber of superior performance out of each one of your components at such a reasonable price point.
BLUE HEAVEN SPEAKER CABLE
Nordost's original Flatline loudspeaker cable introduced the audio world to an entirely new level of performance and a unique production technique. Our proprietary, extruded FEP cables, with their thin, flat profile don't just look different - their deceptive simplicity is a uniquely elegant answer to the conflicting requirements for low resistance, capacitance and inductance that limit the performance of more conventional cable configurations. Now, by re-examining the geometry of each cable, we have reduced dielectric effects still further as well as optimized the physical spacing of the conductors. These advantageous electrical characteristics, combined with the intrinsic geometrical accuracy of ribbon configuration, deliver unprecedented dynamic response, phase accuracy and detail. The result is a combination of natural, unfettered dynamics and clarity that make your music and movies more accessible, more involving and more lifelike. The original Blue Heaven was a hard act to follow, but the LS version easily exceeds the performance of its renowned predecessor, bringing even budget electronics and speakers to life.
