PURPLE FLARE SPEAKER CABLES
Nordost's original Flatline loudspeaker cable introduced the audio world to an entirely new level of performance and a unique production technique. Our proprietary, extruded FEP cables, with their thin, flat profile don't just look different - their deceptive simplicity is a uniquely elegant answer to the conflicting requirements for low resistance, capacitance and inductance that limit the performance of more conventional cable configurations. Now, by re-examining the geometry of each cable, we have reduced dielectric effects still further as well as optimized the physical spacing of the conductors. This results in significant musical gains, increasing musical flow, dynamics and expressive range. Compared to White Lightning, the Purple Flare's increased number and gauge of conductors allow it to deliver greater weight and dynamic range for even greater musical involvement, drama and impact.
"I heard differences almost from the get-go, and those differences were improvements: better resolution of low-level details, and better spatial definition... Nordost cables lend a touch of high-tech finishing to an audio system that most other cables, particularly affordable ones, don’t."

"Blue Heaven has been improved at least a couple times since I reviewed it. However, Nordost's Purple Flare, considered a rung below the current incarnation of Blue Heaven, doesn't just conjure up fond memories. It's a little trip to heaven of its own."

Fine tuning the precise placement of your speakers in the listening room can have profound effects on the musical performance of your system as a whole. Shifts as small as half a centimeter can be crucial. This guide will help you navigate those small shifts in order to find the ideal placement for your loudspeakers.
