The Valhalla 2 Reference Tonearm Cable is designed specifically to pass the most fragile signal in your system. The quality of the conductors, connectors, and the termination itself are all critical to realizing the performance of a high-quality analog replay system. This is especially true since the output of a typical moving-coil cartridge is around 10,000 times smaller than many CD players. The V2 Tonearm Cable’s conductors use the same silver-plated, solid 99.999999% OFC copper as the other Valhalla cables but are tuned and configured for their specific task.

The following terminations are available: HOLO:PLUG® Din-type to HOLO:PLUG® RCA, HOLO:PLUG® Din-type to HOLO:PLUG® gold-plated XLR, and HOLO:PLUG® RCA to HOLO:PLUG® RCA. An integral earth wire is provided, while balanced terminations are available to special order.
