Able to support 1000MHz frequencies and speeds up to 40Gbits per second, and offering more bandwidth than required by most of today's data transmissions, the Nordost Heimdall 2 Ethernet cable helps make music streaming an otherworldly experience while providing future-proof capabilities that mean it won't need to be replaced anytime soon. The finest Ethernet cable Nordost manufactures, the U.S.A.-made Heimdall 2 significantly improves sound quality and acts as the necessary high-end bridge between NAS devices and your system. With Heimdall 2, crosstalk and EMI – the plague of most network cables – are virtually eliminated. Other maladies such as internal microphony, high-frequency resonance, and timing errors are also significantly reduced due to Heimdall 2's mechanical tuning and precise-cut conductors, which ensure absolute uniformity of signal arrival.
Incredible Construction: Eliminates Crosstalk and EMI, Reduces Microphony, Resonance, and More
The meticulous construction speaks to the high-precision performance afforded by Heimdall 2. Eight 23 AWG polymer-insulated conductors arranged in four individually shielded, twisted pairs are wrapped in braided, silver-plating copper shielding and encased with high-density polymer insulation. Terminated with a fully shielded 8P8C/RJ45 connector designed to further resist EMI and Electro Static Discharge (ESD) – just look at those massive connectors in the photo and try not to marvel – Heimdall 2 is state-of-the-art for the present and future. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
