Nordost Analog Interconnects – Vancouver (Demo available at Liquid Sound)
Nordost Ultra High performance Interconnects
Nordost interconnects are models of elegant engineering.
Every Nordost interconnect is a carefully studied exercise in high-performance minimalism, form focused unerringly on function.
Nordost Odin Supreme Reference Analog Interconnect
A cable with all the elements that you need – and none that you don’t.
The Odin Supreme Reference Interconnect uses eight of our revolutionary Total Signal Control (TSC) tubes – each carrying a 23 AWG Dual Mono-Filament conductor with 85 microns of extruded silver over 99.99999% oxygen free copper. The eight conductors are precisely wound in a spiral pattern around a central spacer, which contains two extruded silver over OFC drain wires to create a cable of unprecedented consistency and geometrical precision, perfect shielding yet manageable flexibility. The ODIN Interconnect cables are offered with a special oversize 10 mm WBT NEXTGEN silver-plated copper RCA connector or, for balanced operation, a specially machined silver-plated Furutech XLR connector. These connectors offer a low-mass design that reduces eddy currents and produces the best available interface and impedance matching between the cable and the attached components.
Nordost Valhalla Reference Interconnects
• State of the art • Complete preservation of musical detail • Extremely Fast • Transmits wide bandwidth signals with minimum phase shift • Incredible transient response • Dynamic resolution • Reduces dielectric constant • Extreme mechanical stability • Extruded precision FEP • Silver Shielding • Bettered only by the mighty Odin • Hand built in the USA
Nordost – Norse 2 Interconnects
Nordost’s revolutionary asymmetrical cable topology is so simple yet so effective that it fits squarely in the “Why didn’t we do that before?” category. Once you hear the results, you’ll wonder too… Great conductor technology lies at the heart of great cable design – but it’s not the whole story. How you use those conductors is just as important.
• Ultra-fast, low-loss conductors • Optimized connector dimensions • Shielded against RF interference • Minimized microphonic susceptibility • Solid signal grounds maintain signal to noise ratio
Micro Mono-Filament Technology:
• Superior electrical characteristics and musical performance • Minimizes the impact of shielding on capacitance and dielectric absorption • Effectively disperses undesirable energy generated from vibrating equipment
Nordost – Leif Analog Interconnects
If you want to sum up the performance goals of a good audio interconnect, then, “Nothing added, nothing taken away” does a pretty good job. What most people don’t appreciate is just how succinctly that sums up the required physical construction too!
It’s not what it looks like that matters, but how it sounds, and every extra element you add comes with its own sonic cost. Pad a cable out with unnecessary elements and it sounds, well — padded…
Leif’s minimalism extends to the choice of connectors. Nordost selected the best, most reliable and sonically consistent, low-mass plugs for the Leif Series. After all, why eliminate unnecessary extra material from the cable and then simply throw away the benefits by using connectors that are over-engineered and overweight? Instead, each Leif interconnect, from the White Lightning to the Red Dawn, is a carefully studied exercise in high-performance minimalism, form focused unerringly on function.
