ODIN 2 DIGITAL INTERCONNECT

The precision and intricacy needed to produce a truly superb digital cable are out of reach for most cable manufacturers. In order to obtain optimum results from the finest high-resolution systems, exacting transmission standards should not only be met — they should be exceeded. Through implementing the most advanced, proprietary technology and revolutionary techniques, Nordost has achieved just that. Odin 2 Digital Cables ensure the impedance matching necessary for S/PDIF and AES/EBU leads.

The Odin 2 75 Ohm Cable consists of a single, co-axial, silver-plated, solid core conductor, while the Odin 2 balanced 110 Ohm digital cable is constructed with two silver-plated conductors placed in a twin-axial design. Both Odin 2 Digital Interconnects use Nordost’s patented Dual Mono-Filament technology, offering superior dielectric performance and mechanical damping. The delicate signals they carry are protected by TSC technology, providing a virtual solid shield against harmful EMI and RFI interference. All Odin 2 Digital Interconnects are terminated with Nordost’s purpose built HOLO:PLUG® connectors, elevating these cables to a level never before achieved by digital leads.
