Nordost Leif Blue Heaven Digital Interconnect
€209 – €234
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.
BLUE HEAVEN DIGITAL INTERCONNECT
The safe transfer of digital data streams depends on achieving accurate impedance within the transmission chain. The S/PDIF transmission standard dictates a 75 Ohm co-axial lead, but it is surprising how few cables meet that specification.
The Blue Heaven Digital Interconnect is a true 75 Ohm conductor. Employing a Micro Mono-Filament, co-axial construction. This advanced topology allows us to achieve superior electrical performance and geometrical accuracy, irrespective of cable length. The Blue Heaven Digital Interconnect ensures high-speed, low-loss characteristics and, due to its BNC termination, the 75 Ohm standard is maintained, even across the connectors. Each BNC connector is supplied with a gold-plated RCA adaptor, keeping the cable consistent in performance across any combination of co-axial inputs or outputs. To accommodate even more applications, this cable is also available in a BNC to 3.5mm mono mini configuration.
