Chris Thomas has posted a review of the Nordost Blue Heaven Leif interconnects (£260), LS speaker cables (£955) and LS power cord (£150) at AVGuide. His conclusions:
“The Blue Heaven seems to me to suggest a slight shift in the Nordost sound and it is a move that I think will give the range a far broader appeal. This is a very sweet set of cables indeed that can offer tonal balance that is just about perfect with a depth, image stability and quietness that you normally only hear in much more expensive models. Combine this with the virtually unique speed and rhythmic delicacy that has always been a hallmark of the Nordost approach and you have a cable that is not as brutal when it comes to exposing system flaws as it once was. Some will still prefer the heavyweight, bigger scale of the multi-strand heavy copper cabling on the market. They will like the warmth and cosy musical weight and punch of those cables as opposed to the Blue Heaven’s stunningly articulate and expressive abilities. It is also true that, while the Blue Heaven has notable resolution, the monofilament cables higher up the price scale take this and pure musical transparency to entirely new heights of sophistication. But, for systems of all prices and qualities, the Blue Heaven represents a brilliant solution to an age-old problem and for very reasonable money too.”
