Leif Red Dawn Analog Interconnect

RED DAWN ANALOG INTERCONNECTS

The Red Dawn Interconnect represents the performance pinnacle of the Leif Series. This cable yields the best performance possible in an interconnect without using Micro Mono-Filament/TSC cable design. But despite its relatively conventional appearance there’s more to this cable than meets the eye.

The Red Dawn Analog Interconnect uses a fully-shielded design that can be terminated for balanced or single-ended connection. It employs six, heavy-gauge 24 AWG, silver-plated 99.9999% OFC solid core conductors, precision wound in a minimum cross-section configuration that eliminates unnecessary fillers or padding elements. The insulation used is high-grade FEP, selected for its superior dielectric performance, while the elegant minimalism extends to the carefully selected low-mass connectors and differential grounding. Like all Nordost cables, the Red Dawn LS Analog Interconnect is manufactured and hand-terminated in the USA, enabling us to further guarantee consistent performance. The result is a high-speed, low-loss interconnect that fully preserves the sense of musical power and momentum, scale and drama, delivering your recordings with delicacy on demand. You will be shocked by the life and vitality that Red Dawn LS brings to your system and your music.

COMPLETE NORDOST SYSTEM APPROACH — NORDOST CABLES LEAVES ME SPEECHLESS

Several years ago, at the beginning of my career as a reviewer, I had the opportunity to work with audio and video cables almost exclusively. At the time, it felt like regardless how amazing a cable sounded there was always another to take its place. Very few of them really stood out within my mind. Even those that stood out rarely became part of my . . ."
