Nordost’s entry level cable ranges are perfect examples of quality cabling set at an affordable price range. The Leif family uses scientifically proven methods and technology derived from the development of our Valhalla and Odin ranges and applies their basic principles to create cables which evoke dynamic, low-loss and realistic performances from even modest components and Loudspeakers.
Leif cables are constructed using silver-plated, OFC solid core conductors, which form the basis of Nordost’s great sound. The conductors are then treated with Nordost’s innovative precision FEP extrusion process, where each conductor is individually enclosed in FEP insulation. This technique greatly reduces the dielectric properties of the cables in order to increase signal speeds and accuracy in signal transfer.
To build upon this foundation, Leif cables are designed with a mechanically tuned construction that optimizes the dimensions and spacing of conductors to reduce dielectric effects even further.
Nordost’s White Lightning range is the entry-level product line in the Leif family. White Lightning interconnects and speaker cables employ Nordost’s core cable design of silver-plated, solid core conductors in conjunction with an innovative FEP extrusion process to bring a level of sophistication and dimension to even the most basic set-up.
The White Lightning Analog Interconnect is a fully-shielded design that can be terminated for balanced or single-ended connection. It employs four, 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 is 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 White Lightning Analog 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 that preserves the sense of musical power and momentum, creating a new performance benchmark at this price level.
