The Purple Flare Interconnect is a fully-shielded design that can be terminated for balanced or single-ended connection. It employs six, 26 AWG silver-plated 99.9999% OFC solid core conductors, precision wound in a minimum cross-section configuration that eliminates unnecessary fillers or padding elements. The insulation of this cable is a high-grade FEP, selected for its superior dielectric performance, while the elegant minimalism extends to the carefully selected low-mass connectors and differential grounding. Like all Nordost cables, the Purple Flare Interconnect is manufactured and hand-terminated in the USA, enabling us to further guarantee consistent performance. The result is a high-speed, low-loss interconnect with a wide bandwidth that preserves a sense of musical power and momentum.
“…excellent separation between the main and background voices, along with a fine rendering of tones in the acoustic guitars and strings. It wasn’t as if, with the Nordost Purple Flare], the tonal range or soundstage was now drastically different; the effect was more one of greater clarity, which in turn made the sound more focused and three-dimensional.” – Al Griffin, Soundstage!
