Nordost’s New Installation Cable: 14-2 Speaker Cable


When looking for the perfect installation cable to use in setting up a home sound system, three areas must be addressed: durability, discrete placement, and performance. Nordost Leifstyle installation cables are purpose-built with all three criteria in mind.

Nordost’s newest addition to the Leifstyle line, the 14-2 Speaker Cable, uses two 14 AWG, 99.9999% OFC stranded conductors, which have been extruded with premium PVC. This heavy gauged speaker cable is specifically constructed for in-wall installation. As such, Nordost’s 14-2 Speaker Cable is RoHS Compliant and has a UL rating of CL3, which is rated for up to 300 volts. The 14-2 Speaker Cable’s durability and flexibility make it the perfect solution for snaking your speaker cables through walls, giving your listening room a sleek look without compromising the sound and integrity of your sound system.

The new Leifstyle 14-2 Speaker Cable is available in an extremely wide variety of lengths in order to accommodate any job. But while your 14-2 Leifstyle cable may not be seen once installed, it will certainly be heard with clarity! The performance level of your audio system will receive a noticeable lift, increasing musical flow, dynamics and expressive range—gains that can only be achieved with the precision and detail that is put into every Nordost product. Leifstyle installation cables follow Nordost’s unique and simplistic cable philosophy: cables are connections, not filters, so that you are left with an impression of the music, not of the cabling.
