The LEIF series is Nordost's entry level range of quality cabling. The range makes use of scientifically proven methods and trickled-down technological advances from the company's flagship ranges, applied in a more basic principle to form a solid and dynamic sound performance from your hifi equipment set at a more affordable price-point. Leif cables feature silver-plated, oxygen free copper solid core conductors. These conductors are treated with Nordost's innovative precision FEP extrusion process which sees each of the conductors enclosed within FEP insulation individually.
Nordost is a premium quality interconnect and cable manufacturer, designing and engineering outstanding products to enhance the sound integrity of high quality hifi and home cinema systems. Nordost are known to be the manufacturer who set the standard for high-end flat cables, a superior quality achieved through the use of uniquely developed conductor solutions that originated within the aerospace industry.
The Nordost design philosophy is to offer a pure and untainted signal transfer between hifi components, whether that be from CD player to amplifier or amplifier to loudspeaker. Nordost cables utilise a variety of groundbreaking processes and developed proprietary technologies to form the superior product that has become so critically acclaimed and loved today.
These innovative design principles include their innovative Dual/Micro-Mono Filament, TSC (Total Signal Control) technology and newly developed HOLO:PLUG connectors. Nordost's impressive range of products began as one simple, yet cutting edge cable and has since expanded into a vast series of all-encompassing high fidelity solutions, now not limited only to cables but also anti-resonant/energy dissipating hifi upgrades and accessories.
Nordost's Blue Heaven range of cables sits as the third tier within the Leif family. The Blue Heaven utilises silver-plated and solid core conductors and sees their innovative FEP extrusion process used in conjunction with their patented Micro Mono-Filament technology for the digital interconnects and power cable models. This intelligent combination and the precise engineering and construction methods of which Nordost use, form a cable with outstanding clarity and transparency.
Nordost have been designing flat-line loudspeaker cable for many years. This design allows not only for a thin and unobtrusive visible profile, but the unique way in which the conductors are arranged means that the sound integrity of the cable is able to a higher standard than competitor models at the same and even high price points. The Blue Heaven speaker cable uses proprietary, extruded FEP cables to resolve the conflicts between the requirement for low resistance, capacitance and inductance that limit the performance of more conventional cable configurations.
The way that the geometry of each cable has been re-examined for the Blue Heaven, Nordost of reduced dialectric effects while also optimising the physical spacing of the conductors themselves. The result is an outstanding dynamic response, accurate phase and a transparent level of detail.
