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
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
Finally, the Leif family benefits from the use of proprietary connectors, which provide a sonically
consistent connection and complete Nordost’s impressive first tier of cables.
