Holliston, MA USA September 10th 2012. Nordost is pleased to announce
the introduction of their new Blue Heaven High Speed HDMI cable. This is the
first HDMI cable entirely designed, manufactured and hand-terminated in the
USA, and was built to overcome the quality control and performance
variability that is so apparent with mass-produced HDMI cables. Nordost’s
proven track record of developing and applying proprietary production
techniques and technology to create groundbreaking audio cables has
enabled them to set a completely new price/performance benchmark in the
HDMI field. The Blue Heaven HDMI meets the stringent DPL certification
standards out to a length of 5M, demonstrating its superior performance and
Constructed using 19 Micro Mono-Filament, air-space, silver-plated oxygen
free copper, solid core conductors, the cable employs a twin-axial design to
ensure consistent performance and shielding, as well as materials and
technological continuity with the other cables in the Blue Heaven family. The

use of MMF construction and FEP insulation increases transmission speed,
reduces dielectric absorption and improves mechanical stability, resulting in
superior eye-pattern performance from a cable that finally brings the exacting
standards expected in two-channel systems to the realm of AV and picture
transmission. Despite the level of technology and materials employed and the
fact that each cable is hand-terminated, the Blue Heaven HDMI is priced at a
realistic $350 US for a 1M cable ($100 US for each extra meter).
Nordost will launch the Blue Heaven HDMI in active demonstrations at
TAVES (Toronto Audio Video Entertainment Show) in Toronto from the 28th to
30thof September and RMAF (Rocky Mountain Audio Fest) in Denver from the
12th to 14th of October 2012. We believe in giving you the chance to assess
our claims for yourself.
