HEIMDALL 2 DIGITAL INTERCONNECT
Digital data transfer demands precise impedance matching in both cable and connectors. Manufactured entirely in the USA, the Heimdall 2 S/PDIF and AES/EBU cables are optimized for digital signal transfer and use a silver-plated OFC solid core conductor suspended in our proprietary, precision Dual Mono-Filament construction. In the S/PIDF cable, this technology is combined with combination BNC/RCA connectors, providing a true 75 Ohm signal path which answers the demand for the precise tolerance needed for clocking and dealing with digital output. Whereas the AES/EBU cable is constructed with impedance matched XLR connectors, providing a true 110 Ohm signal path for digital data which results in clearly audible sonic and musical benefits. The result is an ultra high-speed, low-loss cable specifically designed to deliver the best possible performance from today’s high-resolution digital audio sources. They may only be “ones” and “zeros” but poor impedance matching has a dramatic impact on the accuracy with which they are passed from one electronic device to another. Nordost’s ultra-close tolerance digital transfer solutions deliver the goods, sonically and musically.

Nordost’s Heimdall 2 cables are the first tier in our mid-range, Norse 2 family. Using the same core design as our entry-level products, Heimdall 2 cables maintain consistency with the Leif ranges. This continuity ensures similar sonic signatures between our cables, allowing for a seamless transfer as one upgrades throughout Nordost’s lines.
In addition to the already impressive core design, Heimdall 2 cables use innovative techniques and technologies that were first seen in the acclaimed and much sought after Valhalla and Odin ranges. Advances such as Dual Mono-Filament technology and mechanically tuned lengths as well as specially designed, proprietary MoonGlo connectors all make appearances throughout the Heimdall 2 range. Just by taking the first step into the Norse 2 family you will notice significant differences in your sound. With the switch of even one cable you’ll hear banal recordings transform into high fidelity performances.
Offering the most variety of any of our extensive product lines, Heimdall 2 cables run the gamut including power, speaker, interconnect, personal audio cables and more. Each cable in the Heimdall 2 range provides clarity, definition and detail to sound that is otherwise unheard of in this price range.
NORSE 2 CABLES
As you advance through each of Nordost’s cable ranges, what you find is a progressive build upon the fundamental elements of great cabling. The Norse 2 family i delivers the depth, precision and nuance previously only found in live performances.
Like Leif cables, the Norse 2 family uses silver-plated, OFC solid core conductors, extruded FEP insulation and a mechanically tuned construction. However, Norse 2 employs even further technological advances, unlocking the full potential a hifi audio system has to offer.
After years of extensive research and development, Nordost has perfected a proprietary technique called Mono-Filament technology that creates a virtual air dielectric by winding an FEP filament in a precise spiral around each individual conductor before extruding an outer FEP “sleeve” around it. By minimizing contact with the conductor, Mono-Filament technology lessens dielectric absorption while enhancing mechanical damping and geometrical precision.
In addition, Norse 2 family cables are the first to use asymmetrical grounding across the board, lowering the noise floor by increasing the ground quality. Nordost has also taken a step beyond its original mechanically tuned construction and introduced mechanically tuned lengths, reducing internal microphony and high-frequency impedance resonance.
