ODIN 2 DIGITAL INTERCONNECTS
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.

“How could digital cables make a difference in a hifi system if all they do is send ones and zeros?” “How does the design of a digital cable help in the signal transfer?” This download breaks down the answers to these questions, explains the technical challenges of digital audio data transmission, and lets you know what you should listen for when evaluating the merits of a digital audio cable, so that you can upgrade your digital cables with confidence.
"Nordost must be one of the state-of-the-art cables in the audiophile world. Since Audiotechnique has adopted Nordost Odin as reference cables, and I have also tried on a set of Nordost Valhalla 2 in my home, I have a thorough understanding of how capable Nordost cables are. Although Nordost makes their . . ."
