More Natural Warmth and Detail Than Ever - Huge Improvements On a Winning Formula
Nordost's Frey 2 boasts impressive conductor numbers, enhanced ground integrity, lower noise floor, greater detail, dynamic range and musical impact than its predecessor. Five 24AWG conductors increase weight and energy at bandwidth extremes for more scale and greater drama, while at the other end of the scale, the blacker backgrounds and greater resolution increase delicacy and intimacy, allowing you to hear further into the performance, making Frey 2 the perfect interconnect for critical signal paths.
"Frey 2 has rebalanced the scales, taking the transient and micro-dynamic elements of the past and integrating them with richer mids and a brawnier, meatier bottom end that gives music more discernible, atmosphere and weight. In a word, there's more fidelity to the live event."
—Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound
"...the Frey 2s really sang, delicately treading the fine line between airiness and glassy brightness, concision and that etched quality that many audiophiles have likely encountered in their never-ending journey toward aural enlightenment."
—Hans Wetzel, SoundStage
The new, second generation Norse Series interconnects deliver a level of performance not previously possible at their price points. Nordost's proprietary Micro Mono-Filament construction, first introduced on the legendary Valhalla reference cables, creates a virtual air dielectric complete with an elegantly engineered suspension system. Combined with silver-plated OFC solid-core conductors and FEP insulation throughout, the result is the ideal electrical and mechanically controlled construction for ultra-fast, low-loss signal transfer. Optimized conductor dimensions, and asymmetrical grounding topology significantly extend the musical performance of the new Norse series, finally allowing your equipment to deliver its full performance potential, while the consistency of design and materials across the entire Norse Series means that you can easily prioritize a system-wide solution without compromising the coherence of your cables.
