Nordost’s Red Dawn range is the top tier of their entry-level, Leif family. Thanks to Nordost’s core cable design, including silver-plated, solid core conductors and FEP extrusion, as well as patented Micro Mono-Filament technology integrated throughout the line, Red Dawn cables provide a natural and articulated performance from your home audio system. Red Dawn cables allow your system to take that final leap from creating enjoyable music to experiencing a true performance that will make standard cabling seem intolerable.
Nordost’s original Flatline loudspeaker cable introduced the audio world to an entirely new level of performance and a unique production technique. Their proprietary, extruded FEP cables, with their thin, flat profile don’t just look different – their deceptive simplicity is a uniquely elegant answer to the conflicting requirements for low resistance, capacitance and inductance that limit the performance of more conventional cable configurations. Now, the Red Dawn LS takes the benefits even further. By reducing dielectric effects still further as well as optimizing the physical spacing of the 20 heavy-gauge 26 AWG, silver-plated OFC solid core conductors, we have produced a cable capable of phenomenal phase accuracy and detail, speed and dynamic range. From the quietest, most delicate note to the power of a thundering orchestral crescendo or driving rock track, the Red Dawn LS Speaker Cable spans the range with effortless grace and deft control, allowing music to seduce when it wants to, or be savage when it must. Sitting at the top of the Leif Series, Red Dawn LS bears comparison with competing cables irrespective of price. The Red Dawn Speaker Cable yields the best performance possible from a speaker cable without using Micro Mono-Filament/TSC cable design.

This speaker cable bought about a huge improvement in my stereo system. Very revealing.
