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. This results in significant musical gains, increasing musical flow, dynamics and expressive range. Compared to White Lightning, the Purple Flare's increased number and gauge of conductors allow it to deliver greater weight and dynamic range for even greater musical involvement, drama and impact.


“…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.”  read the review Al Griffin, Soundstage!
