Nordost Leif Blue Heaven Tone Arm Cable +
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 TONEARM CABLE +
The tonearm lead is one of the most critical audio cables in an analog system. The fragile nature of the signals it carries demands a purpose-built, low capacitance conduit, in order to maximize the authentic and natural musical reproduction that LPs offer.
The Blue Heaven Tonearm Cable + uses a twisted pair cable design to create a left and right channel, which are individually shielded in order to eliminate inter-channel crosstalk. It also employs a separately shielded, silver-plated bond wire, wrapped in Micro Mono-Filament, which runs alongside the left and right channel to help minimize noise from the line. However, the most exciting aspect of this cable design is its revolutionary grounding solution. Nordost has introduced detachable, silver-plated ground whips, complete with Micro Mono-Filament technology, to further enhance this groundbreaking cable. These ground whips completely eliminate any noise that could be introduced during signal transfer, regardless of the unique construction of the components found in each individual sound system.
