The Nordost Red Dawn LS resides at the top of the new Leif series. It represents a tremendous advance over the previous Red Dawn as it is shielded which increases the dynamic noise floor, i.e., you can hear more detail when the music drops down in volume, and it is much more musical throughout the entire audio range.
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. Insulation 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. The Red Dawn LS interconnect (like all Nordost cables) 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, a compelling impact when required. You will be shocked by the life and vitality that Red Dawn LS brings to your system and your music.
