HEIMDALL 2 4K UHD CABLE
Nordost’s Heimdall 2 4K UHD Cable is the first cable on the market that can deliver the true experience promised from 4K compatible components. Every aspect in design and build material used in the construction of this cable was specifically chosen to increase bandwidth and data transfer speed (which must fall between 10.2 and 18GHz to qualify as a true UHD cable), while simultaneously eliminating harmful factors such as jitter, timing errors and crosstalk. The Heimdall 2 4K UHD Cable is constructed using nineteen, 25 AWG solid core conductors, which have been plated with silver in order to enhance the flow of ultra-high frequency current used to carry TMDS (Transition Minimized Differential Signaling) from transmitter to receiver. The conductors are then wrapped in Nordost’s proprietary Micro Mono-Filament technology, increasing the velocity of propagation by 20%, and arranged in a twin-axial, shielded pair design. This design topology allows for shorter and more accurate wire lengths, which in turn reduces errors, while shielding overcomes any crosstalk issues.
“While I’m mostly interested in better sound, when I’m watching a movie or football game, better video makes as much difference as an upgraded speaker or amplifier. The Heimdall 2 is that kind of upgrade – indispensable once you’ve experienced it.”
