Connectors Available

Digital data transfer demands precise impedance matching in both cable and connectors. Manufactured entirely in the USA, the Heimdall 2 S/PDIF cable is optimized for digital signal transfer and uses a silver-plated solid OFC conductor suspended in our proprietary, precision Micro Mono-Filament construction with a full coverage coaxial shield. Combined with combination BNC/RCA connectors it provides a true 75 Ohm signal path for digital data, resulting 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. No surprise then, that Nordost’s ultra-close tolerance digital transfer solutions deliver the goods, sonically and musically.  

Norse Series – the fast track to superior musical performance.

Digital data transfer demands precise impedance matching in both cable and connectors. Manufactured entirely in the USA, the Heimdall 2 AES/EBU cable is optimized for digital signal transfer and uses silver-plated solid OFC conductors suspended in our proprietary, precision Micro Mono-Filament construction with a full coverage coaxial shield. Combined with impedance matched XLR connectors it provides a true 110 Ohm signal path for digital data, resulting 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.

Improving upon Nordost’s Blue Heaven USB 2.0, the new Heimdall 2 USB 2.0 is the high-end digital cable that will deliver ones and zeroes with the efficiency and diligence necessary to maintain the correct impedance to dramatically lift your hifi system to a whole new level of performance.

Thanks to the experience acquired in the fabrication of successful products such as the Blue Heaven HDMI and USB 2.0 cables, Nordost can now further refine digital leads through its most current, proprietary technology. The Heimdall 2 USB 2.0 is constructed from 4x20AWG stranded, silver-plated 99.99999% OFC conductors, arranged in a precise, twisted double helix in order to ensure character impedance, reduce noise and minimize cross-talk contamination. In order to increase dielectric, the conductors are suspended in Nordost’s proprietary FEP Dual Mono-Filament, which is newly optimized to increase flexibility and mechanical dampening.  Add a dual layer silver foil jacket and silver braided shield and the Heimdall 2’s extreme data transmission speeds surpass the USB 2.0 standards.

To further up the ante, the new Heimdall 2 USB 2.0 is now implementing mechanically tuned lengths. This technique, used in Nordost’s Odin, Norse 2 and Valhalla 2 ranges, reduces internal microphonics and high-frequency impedance resonance, which ultimately allows you to enjoy the dynamics, coherence and balance of live music played in the comfort of your own listening room.
