VALHALLA 2 DIGITAL INTERCONNECTS

Digital signals are subject to extremely precise transmission and termination standards. Ensuring that your digital cables meet those standards is vital to achieving the best possible performance from high-resolution digital systems. Valhalla 2 Digital Interconnects employs our advanced Dual Mono-Filament construction to mechanically dampen its silver-plated, solid copper conductors, while also reducing dielectric contact by over 85%.   

In order to achieve exact impedance matching, Nordost’s Valhalla 2 Digital leads offer a double layer of silver shielding. The 75 Ohm cable is terminated with gold-plated HOLO:PLUG® BNC connectors for correct impedance matching and is supplied with gold-plated RCA adapters, while the 110 Ohm cable uses gold-plated HOLO:PLUG® XLR connectors. Ensuring that they have the minimum effect on the digital signal, our HOLO:PLUG® connectors are designed to enhance sonic properties and maintain constant impedance throughout each cable. Like all Nordost cables, Valhalla 2 Digital Interconnects are made in the USA.
