Nordost has just announced the introduction of its new Blue Heaven High Speed HDMI cable. This is the first HDMI cable entirely designed, manufactured and hand-terminated in the USA, and was built to overcome the quality control and performance variability that is so apparent with mass-produced HDMI cables. Nordost’s proven track record of developing and applying proprietary production techniques and technology to create groundbreaking audio cables has enabled them to set a completely new price/performance benchmark in the HDMI field. The Blue Heaven HDMI meets the stringent DPL certification standards out to a length of 5M, demonstrating its superior performance and consistency.
Constructed using 19 Micro Mono-Filament, air-space, silver-plated oxygen free copper, solid core conductors, the cable employs a twin-axial design to ensure consistent performance and shielding, as well as materials and technological continuity with the other cables in the Blue Heaven family. The use of MMF construction and FEP insulation increases transmission speed, reduces dielectric absorption and improves mechanical stability, resulting in superior eye-pattern performance from a cable that finally brings the exacting standards expected in two-channel systems to the realm of AV and picture transmission. Despite the level of technology and materials employed and the fact that each cable is hand-terminated, the Blue Heaven HDMI is priced at a realistic $350 US for a 1M cable ($100 US for each extra meter).
Nordost will launch the Blue Heaven HDMI in active demonstrations at TAVES (Toronto Audio Video Entertainment Show) in Toronto from the 28th to 30thof September and RMAF (Rocky Mountain Audio Fest) in Denver from the 12th to 14th of October 2012. Nordost believes in giving show visitors the chance to assess its claims for themselves. For more info, please visit www.nordost.com
