Hi End音響高價化的趨勢,並非媒體所能擋,但我們依然努力地為網友找尋最佳又最值的產品,這款Nordost Flatline Gold MKII喇叭線,在「物超所值」的項目上,肯定是近期以來最高分的喇叭線之一。

唯一的超扁平線

作為線材廠商,Nordost無疑的在產品辨識度上拔得頭籌,只要提到「扁平線」,唯一的聯想就是Nordost,他們家的喇叭線、訊號線全部採用超扁平設計,同時在音響線材市場上擁有獨一無二的特性。Nordost的母公司並不是音響廠商,而是專注於軍事、航太與醫療領域的科技公司,而音響線材則是研發線傳導技術的產品延伸。在這些特殊領域當中,佈線需要輕薄不佔空間,Nordost的扁平線顯然具有一般銅線難以匹敵的應用優勢。

如果有機會把玩Flatline Gold MKII,我相信很多人心中都有和我一樣的疑問:這麼薄的喇叭線,會不會很容易扯斷?請放心,Nordost原本的應用範圍是線控傳輸,在軍事、航太與醫療應用上,都必須強調高度的強固性。記得以前小高音響最喜歡用Nordost線材,有一次我不小心在他那裡「踩」到喇叭線,線身折了起來,好生擔心,沒想到小高說:「我經常得換器材,踩到線是常有的事,從沒壞過。」看來這超薄的線身,似乎有以柔克剛的特性,要弄壞還不是件容易的事。

清楚的測試數據

Flatline Gold MKII在Nordost家族裡面,算是基本款的喇叭線,價格也壓在萬元以下,非常適合初次想升級音響線材的愛樂迷。在扁平的FEP(厚度0.5mm)透明包覆裡面,使用了6N無氧銅(OFC),結構為正負各有四股導線的對稱設計,送測的Flatline Gold MKII安裝了香蕉插,原廠還有4mm的Nordost Z端子和Y插可以選擇,不過我在國內看到的還是以香蕉插居多。和Flatline Gold MKII孿生的兄弟則是SuperFlatline Gold MKII,設計完全一樣,不過採Bi-wire設計,等於把兩組Flatline Gold MKII連結在一起。

由於Nordost具備高科技公司背景,因此提供了容抗與阻抗的數據,以Flatline Gold MKII而言,容抗為8.6 pF/ft,阻抗為0.13μH/ft。此外,Nordost還提供了傳輸速率,Flatline Gold MKII具備91%的光速傳輸。由於音響線材廠商很少提供類似數據,我們很難比對差異,但是願意提供詳盡的物理性能,可見Nordost不僅對傳輸性能有信心,也希望消費者以科技的眼光來正視他們的產品。

講求純淨表現

與大部分的線材一樣,Flatline Gold MKII需要一點時間熟化,不過即使才剛拆封的Flatline Gold MKII,立刻就能展現出透明、純淨的質地,而優秀的結像力則會隨著聆聽時間越長,逐漸浮現。有些音響迷玩線,喜歡從相生互補的角度出發,低頻不夠好,找公認在低頻段表現較佳的喇叭線,嫌高頻不夠通透,就選亮麗飄逸的線材,不過Nordost倒有些不同,即使是入門級的Flatline Gold MKII,中性的取向非常明顯,你可以感受到通透的音場與均衡的頻段表現,但就是沒有突然長出來的額外低頻,或者特別搶眼的高頻。從等同於91%光速的傳輸速率來看,Flatline Gold MKII講究的是不增不減、不垢不淨的忠實傳導,是講求「純淨」派的大內高手。

細節、能量感與速度感


 
既然沒有額外的低頻、沒有更搶眼的高頻,那麼Flatline Gold MKII究竟改善了什麼?Flatline Gold MKII在三個層面上有著優秀的表現,包括音樂能量感、聲音細節與速度感,塑造了中性但傑出的音樂性能。在能量感上,彷彿擴大機的更壯了些,整體音樂的密度更好,譬如彭靖惠(小貓)的「純粹慵懶」,(豐華 04-20369-1),原本形體就比較貼近聆聽者的錄音,顯得更為龐大,有點搖擺、有點搖滾、有點Boss nova的融合氣氛,小貓有點嬌嗔、有點沙啞的雌性魅力,散發出誘人的聆聽氣氛。

細節的表現,更是音響器材引人入勝之處,即使是簡單的「巴哈無伴奏大提琴」,無論你聽的是現代的馬友友、老牌的卡薩爾斯,或是經典的史塔克,空間當中的殘響、擦弦的細微表現、運弓循行的呼吸韻律,每一項浮現出來的細節,都讓聆聽者更加投入音樂,Flatline Gold MKII在這些項目上,都能有稱職而細膩的表現。
速度感則是Flatline Gold MKII值得獲得最高分的強項,低頻反應速度快且狠,量感則不十分突出,兩者相加把低頻的線條塑造出來,而且是有Q度的彈跳低頻,不拖泥帶水的暫態反應,讓鬼太鼓打起來就是淋漓痛快。

肯定超值好聲

整體而言,Flatline Gold MKII擁有忠實的個性,沒有特別明顯的音染,如果你喜歡乾淨、快速、忠實的直率個性,那麼Nordost應該深得你心。與手上眾多高價喇叭線相比較,Flatline Gold MKII在絕對的表現上稍微吃虧,但是如果衡諸萬元以下的價格,肯定是超值的好產品,也是入門音響線材的優選。

Details


The Nordost Flatline Gold MKII Speaker Cable is a firm favorite with audiophiles due to its extremely high performance to price ratio.

The Nordost Flatline Gold MKII Speaker Cable consists of eight rectangular 99.9999% OFC conductors (4 positive and 4 return) per channel in a flat array arrangement. Each conductor is individually encapsulated with 0.5mm of extruded FEP. Prior to extrusion each conductor is ultrasonically cleaned to remove all contaminants from its surface. Flatline Gold is a firm favorite with audiophiles due to its extremely high performance to price ratio. Available in pairs, terminated with Nordost's spades .

The Nordost Flatline Gold MKII Speaker Cable consists of four rectangular 99.9999% OFC conductors (positive and return) per channel. Each conductor is individually encapsulated with 0.5mm of extruded Teflon®️. Prior to extrusion each conductor is ultra sonically cleaned to remove all contaminants from its surface.

All cables are factory fitted with low mass Spade made from Beryllium copper which is hard gold plated (as illustrated). The low mass design preserves the low capacitance and inductance characteristics of the cable at the termination point and minimizes signal reflections back into the cable.


•Home Entertainment Magazine said "It has a degree of openness and precision that is only matched by the best solid-core cables."
•Custom lengths and terminations are available and Spades or pin connectors can be fitted.
•Extremely high performance to price ratio.
•Low mass design preserves the low capacitance and inductance characteristic.
