The Journey to Higher Quality Audio With Nordost Leif Cables: Part 3 of 3

Nordost-blue heaven-speaker_cable_banana

Completing the cable loom with the Blue Heaven speaker cables pushed the sonic envelope another few notches forward and brought refinement to just about every improvement that each of the previously upgraded cables offered individually.  All of the recordings I listened to offered copious amounts of musical details and played with outstanding dynamics.  Florence + the Machine’s “MTV Unplugged” album sounded remarkably musical and filled with emotion.  It took me back a couple of summers when I saw Florence Welch live at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto.  With the speaker cables in place, her voice sang with an improved presence, revealing finer subtleties.  Guitars and other string instruments also presented increased degrees of texture.  Classical pieces such as “Holst: The Planets” on the other hand sounded larger and richer, and as a result more engaging and lifelike.  Everything about the musical presentation sounded more refined and realistic.

But all good things must come to an end.  Writing this article was a bit of a quest back in time for me, back to the days when I was absorbing knowledge like a sponge about high-end audio and building my first proper music system.  The fact is that even 14 years into publishing a magazine about audio, I’m still learning new things about audio all the time.  I hope that sharing my knowledge with you has opened your eyes to just how important of a role cables play within an audio system.  You could purchase the best audio components in the world but if you connect them with lousy cables, you’ll never be able to hear their true sonic potential.  If you’re looking to step up the performance and enjoyment of your music system, give the Nordost Leif Blue Heaven cables a try – your ears will thank you and your feet will make you dance.  To learn more about Nordost cables, check out www.nordost.com.
