HEIMDALL 2 TONEARM

Phono cartridges, with their incredibly low signal levels and clearly defined electrical requirements demand dedicated cable designs.  In order to deal with delicate signals, Nordost’s proprietary Dual Mono-Filament construction creates a virtual air dielectric around dimensionally optimized, silver-plated OFC solid core conductors. When combined with FEP insulation throughout, the result is the ideal electrically and mechanically controlled construction for ultra-fast, low-loss transfer of these extremely delicate signals.

With effective shielding, dual grounding and a full range of termination options in both single-ended and balanced configurations, the Heimdall 2 Tonearm Cable allows you to specify the topology required to liberate the musical performance locked in the grooves on your LP collection. This dedicated tonearm lead will finally allow your record player to deliver its full performance potential. Its position, right at the start of the signal chain, and the fragile nature of the signals it carries make it doubly critical, and deliver a double performance benefit when you get it right. The consistency of design and materials across the entire Norse 2 Series means that you can take full advantage of a system-wide solution without compromising the coherence of your cables, all the way from the base of your tonearm.

HEIMDALL 2 

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 is the second tier in Nordost’s line, delivering 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.
