Hera the Differences a Reference-Quality Wire Makes in Your System: U.S.A.-Made Nordost Heimdall 2 Speaker Cable Delivers Robust Dynamics, See-Through Clarity, and Gobs of Detail
When it comes to creating great-sounding system, an old maxim always proves true: everything matters. And that includes your cabling. Nordost Heimdall 2 speaker cables demonstrate what a stunning difference reference-quality wire makes to overall performance. Heimdall 2 is built in the U.S.A. to unleash the sweeping dynamics, crystalline clarity, and emotionally engaging detail produced by your components by solving a host of signal-transmission challenges.
Internally, Nordost's proprietary Micro-Mono Filament construction creates a virtual air dielectric that dramatically reduces signal loss during transfer, ensuring your speakers get the full measure of your system's potential. Whether reproducing the desirable micro-cues of a cutting-edge digital streamer or rich holography of a state-of-the-art tube amplifier, Heimdall 2 serves as a transparent window, allowing you to hear all the treasures your music has to offer.
Clocking in with an astounding signal propagation measurement of 95 percent the speed of light, Heimdall 2 also delivers instantaneous transients with remarkable ease. Because resistance in a cable can act like a sponge – draining signals of the energy necessary to reproduce lively performances – Heimdall 2 boasts a flat design to enable careful separation of its conductors, thereby seriously reducing strand interaction. Each strand is then cut to a specific, mechanically tuned length that further reduces internal microphony and high-frequency impedance resonance.
Visually, Heimdall 2's elegant ribbon design is both incredibly flexible and sturdy, capable of wrapping around sharp corners and being placed underneath carpets and a variety of objects without impacting its stellar performance. Combine such ease of installation with Heimdall 2's ability to sonically disappear, and you have a speaker cable that puts the spotlight on what's truly important – the heart and soul of your music. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
"In all respects, from transparency, tonality, low noise, detail, imagery, focus, coherency, timing and musical engagement, I've experienced no better to date..."
– George de Sa, Canada HiFi Magazine/Novo
"It retains the wide-spectrum clarity, fine-grained texture and freedom from glare and bloom, which in many ways defines the Norse series' house sound, but with notable improvements to timing, and overall time-coherence."
– Steve Dickinson, Hi-Fi+
