NORSE 2 – HIGH PERFORMANCE CABLES
The Norse 2 family is the second tier in Nordost’s product line, delivering the depth, precision, and nuance previously only found in live performances.
Norse 2 cables are constructed using silver-plated, OFC solid core conductors, extruded FEP insulation, and a mechanically tuned construction which, together, form the basis of Nordost’s great sound. Norse 2 cables build upon those fundamental elements, employing even further technological advances, unlocking the full potential that hifi audio systems have to offer.
After thirty years of extensive research and development, Nordost has perfected a proprietary technique called Mono-Filament technology, which 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 increases signal transfer speeds while enhancing mechanical damping and geometrical precision.
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.
"Frey 2 is an exceptional performer from a proven brand that through the decades has continued to evolve and improve. Audition with confidence. You will not be disappointed."
– Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound
"The QBASE QB8 power distribution box along with the Tyr 2 power cords offered a staggering performance upgrade in both systems I tried them with. They presented a clean, quiet foundation for the system, allowing each and every audio component to achieve its full potential. The performance uplift was transformational, in some cases approaching what you would expect from upgrading some of the components. Putting the Tyr 2 interconnects and speaker cables into play, further enriched the performance of the system, raising the performance bar of both my systems to the highest level I have yet experienced."

"There’s no question in my mind that the Norse 2 Tyr 2s sound superb. Inserting them in an already great-sounding system previously lashed up with their little brother Freys, I clearly heard consistent gains in all categories of sound. How often does that happen? How much is it worth? With Nordost’s Norse 2 Tyr 2s, I’m extremely confident you’ll get your money’s worth, which in the world of cables, is far from a given."

“…a definite step-up from what the Blue Heaven Tonearm Cable+ was capable of. With the Heimdall 2 Tonearm Cable+, the music appeared more immediate and distinctly layered while remaining remarkably cohesive."
– Jay Garrett, StereoNET
"The Norse 2 series loom, brought forth incremental upgrades to the sound that I don’t / wouldn’t hesitate recommending to anyone…it’s that significant of an upgrade..."
