Nordost Frey 2 Power Cable: Ultra Fast, Detailed, and Resolving Power
Many people might not associate a power cable with "warmth," but with Frey 2, Nordost has done just that. The new, second generation Frey 2 power cords deliver a level of performance from any component not previously possible at this price point. Frey 2's five 16AWG Silver-Plated 99.99999 solid-core OFC conductors ensure the smoothest, most silent performance possible. Nordost's proprietary Micro Mono-Filament construction creates a virtual air dielectric complete with an elegantly engineered suspension system. Combined with FEP insulation throughout, the result is the ideal electrical and mechanically controlled construction for ultra-fast, low-impedance current and voltage transfer.
"...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 complex topology of the MMF conductors is especially effective in dissipating mechanical energy present on the AC line, which otherwise enters your delicate electronics. Frey 2 adds additional conductors, further diminishing low-level storage and charging effects creating wider, faster dynamic response, resulting in a more dramatic, involving and realistic musical response. Consistency of design and materials across the entire Norse Series means that you can easily create a clearly prioritized, no compromise system-wide cable solution, from wall socket to loudspeaker terminals, with each link in the chain specifically optimized for purpose, finally unleashing your equipment's full performance potential.
