If you’re concerned about where your cables are coming from, we have huge news. Nordost just announced the Blue Heaven High-Speed HDMI Cable, the first HDMI cable entirely designed, manufactured and hand-terminated in the United States.
This is a very big deal. It’s also a great cable.
Nordost designed the Blue Heaven with the plan to overcome some of the quality control and performance issues that sometimes come with mass-produced HDMI cables.
Designed to meet DPL certification standards out to a length of 5 meters, the Blue Heaven has 19 Micro Mono-Filament, air-space, silver-plated oxygen free copper, solid core conductors and a twin-axial design to ensure consistent performance and shielding.
Other features include FEP insulation, 3D support, and gold-plated HDMI connectors.
Nordost plans to show off the Blue Heaven HDMI in active demonstrations at the Toronto Audio Video Entertainment Show from September 28-30, and the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest from October 12-14. There’s no word on when the company will start selling the Blue Heaven HDMI, but pricing has been announced. Expect to see an MSRP of $250 for a 1M cable, with each extra meter costing an extra $100.
