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.
"impeccably balanced with no trace of any tonal lift through the bandwidth at all. What remains is the superb speed and rhythmic delicacy. There is no sense of blurring confusion whatsoever as the music remains assuredly cohesive from top to bottom"
"The Nordost Blue Heavens represent fabulous value. Coming into this review, I was of the mind that cables were the absolute last things in my system that I would spend my hard-earned money on. I maintained this stance even after reading Nordost’s own "Foundation Theory," available on their website, which suggests that the foundation of a listener’s system should be not the speakers, amplifier, or source, but the cables. I dismissed such a notion out of hand, probably because it flies in the face of received audiophile wisdom.
Without addressing the merits of the "Foundation Theory," I concede that the Nordost Blue Heavens have brought to my system the greatest jumps in musicality, soundstaging, and transparency that I have heard. Their honesty finds a home in each and every recording I throw at them, and I could not be happier with the results. Secure in the knowledge that these Nordost cables will neither editorialize your music nor unduly burden your wallet, I can offer only my strongest recommendation"
