Introducing Leif 3

June 11th, 2024 – High-end audio distributor Renaissance is pleased to announce the availability of the first cables in Nordost’s new Leif 3 range. The Leif 3 series represents the latest evolution of Nordost’s entry-level cables, which have set benchmarks in the hi-fi industry for over three decades. This new range is the result of years of technological breakthroughs and advancements in craftsmanship, utilising optimal materials, unique geometry, and filter-less technology to deliver dynamic, low-loss, and lifelike performances from any audio system. The Leif 3 line includes four ranges: White Lightning, Purple Flare, Blue Heaven, and Red Dawn, each offering power cords, interconnects, and loudspeaker cables.

Leif 3 Power Cords provide a better foundation than ever. Benefiting from Nordost’s trickle-down technology, they utilize FEP extrusion, as well as Nordost’s proprietary Micro Mono-Filament technology to deliver the brand’s signature sound. Each range within the Leif 3 series benefits from heavier gauge sizes and updated connectors. The improvements include expanded dynamic expression, increased musical nuance, and realistic precision in timing.

Leif 3 Interconnects boast a complete redesign. Their silver-plated, solid core OFC conductors are arranged in twisted pairs to reduce noise interference. Each pair is then individually shielded before being bundled and secured in a second braided shield, providing 95% coverage. Leif 3 Interconnects have been further upgraded with Profi Neutrik gold-plated RCAs, ensuring the same great RCA and XLR termination is available throughout both the Leif and Norse families, from White Lightning to Tyr 2. The new Leif 3 Interconnects enhance the textural aspects of music reproduction, intensified by the quiet background they provide.

Leif 3 Loudspeaker Cables continue to offer the radically thin, durable and flat cable design of their celebrated predecessors. However, Leif 3 Loudspeaker Cables now provide even more. Extra conductors, and heavier gauge sizes improve the drive and dynamic realism of the music that these cables produce.

Renaissance Managing Director, John Carroll, said, ‘The new Leif 3 range delivers a performance improvement that is literally another level: the new Blue Heaven series is now as good as the old Red Dawn series. Whether you are a long-term audiophile with an elite system or you are taking the very first steps in making entry-level upgrades to your setup, there is a Leif 3 cable for you.’

Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP): Power cords starting from £250, Interconnects from £320, and Speaker Cables from £450.
