The tiny signals generated by pick-up cartridges, especially modern moving-coils, can be between 500 and 5000 times smaller than the average output of a CD player. Such fragile signals demand purpose built, low-capacitance cables if the finest details and textures are to escape smearing and loss. Low capacitance is a central aim of Nordost's high-speed minimalist construction, but a tonearm lead demands more. The Blue Heaven Tonearm Cable delivers exactly the low-loss electrical characteristics required, combined with effective shielding, dual grounding and a full range of termination options in both single-ended and balanced configurations, allowing you to specify the exact topology required to liberate the musical performance locked in the grooves on your LP collection. Its position at the start of the signal chain, and the fragile nature of the signals it carries make it one of the most critical and impactful cables in your system. With the Blue Heaven Tonearm Cable, now there's an affordable way to hear what's really on your records.
