High Performance Nordost Digital Interconnects available at Liquid Sound, Vancouver.
Nordost 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.
Nordost Odin Supreme Reference Digital Interconnects
Take the conceptual elegance and technological breakthroughs that established the Valhalla phenomenon and extend them further still. Spare no expense when it comes to selecting the optimum materials and construction; use the latest and best connectors, the most sophisticated peripheral technology. Because when you are striving for the last, tiniest nuance of musical detail, the uninhibited full-range dynamics and explosive impact of a great crescendo, every little bit counts.
For many listeners Valhalla moved them closer to the music, closer to the performers than ever before, setting standards of communication and involvement that others still strive to match today. But ten years is a long time and today we can do better still. If music is the goal, the reason and the passion, then only the best will do…

Nordost Blue Heaven 75 Ohm Digital Interconnect
The safe transfer of digital data streams depends absolutely on achieving accurate impedance within the transmission chain. The S/PDIF transmission standard dictates a 75 Ohm co-axial lead, but it is surprising how few cables meet that specification.
The Nordost Blue Heaven digital interconnect is a true 75 Ohm conductor. Employing a micro mono-filament, co-axial construction, this advanced topology allows us to achieve superior electrical performance and geometrical accuracy irrespective of cable length. The high-speed, low-loss characteristics of the virtual air dielectric, combined with the superior mechanical behavior of the MMF cradle minimize cable echoes and reflections, while the use of BNC termination ensures that the 75 Ohm standard is maintained, even across the connectors. Each Blue Heaven digital interconnect is supplied with a pair of true 75 Ohm BNC to RCA adaptors, making the cable consistent in performance across any combination of co-axial output or input socketry – and future proof to boot. Changing your DAC or transport will no longer mean having to change your digital interconnect too.
Nordost Heimdall 2 S/PDIF cable
Digital data transfer demands precise impedance matching in both cable and connectors. Manufactured entirely in the USA, the Heimdall 2 S/PDIF cable is optimized for digital signal transfer and uses a silver-plated solid OFC conductor suspended in our proprietary, precision Micro Mono-Filament construction with a full coverage coaxial shield. Combined with combination BNC/RCA connectors it provides a true 75 Ohm signal path for digital data, resulting in clearly audible sonic and musical benefits. The result is an ultra high-speed, low loss cable specifically designed to deliver the best possible performance from today’s high-resolution digital audio sources. They may only be “ones” and “zeros” but poor impedance matching has a dramatic impact on the accuracy with which they are passed from one electronic device to another. No surprise then, that Nordost’s ultra-close tolerance digital transfer solutions deliver the goods, sonically and musically.
