Nordost recently announced the introduction of their new Blue Heaven High Speed HDMI cable. Nordost's proven track record of developing and applying proprietary production techniques and technology to create audio cables has allegedly enabled them to set a new price/performance benchmark in the HDMI field. The Blue Heaven HDMI meets the stringent DPL certification standards out to a length of 5M.
Constructed using 19 Micro Mono-Filament, air-space, silver-plated oxygen free copper, solid core conductors, the cable employs a twin-axial design in an effort 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 reportedly increases transmission speed, reduces dielectric absorption and improves mechanical stability.
The Blue Heaven HDMI is priced at a realistic $350 US for a 1M cable ($100 US for each extra meter).
