Nordost Heimdall 2 Power Cable Reveals Your System's True Potential
The Nordost Heimdall 2 Power Cable can allow your system to deliver sonic details and nuance that were previously unheard. Nordost's revamp of their award-winning Norse cables led to exciting developments in power cord technology. Many of the same innovations that make Heimdall 2 interconnects and speaker cables so transparent and revealing are at work in these AC cords.
Nordost's proprietary Micro Mono-Filament construction 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-impedance current and voltage transfer. Heimdall 2 effectively removes nasty barriers that can interfere with your system's optimal performance.
In the Nordost Heimdall 2 Power Cable, 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. Additionally, the low-storage characteristics of the air space construction minimizes low-level charging effects that can slow and blur dynamic response.
Consistency of design and materials across the entire Norse series means that you can easily create a clearly prioritized, system-wide cable solution, from wall socket to loudspeaker terminals, with each link in the chain specifically optimized for that purpose. You owe it to yourself to unleash your valuable equipment's full performance potential. Like all Music Direct products, the Nordost Heimdall 2 Power Cable comes with the 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee.
"With the Heimdall 2 in my valve preamp power supply, Dave Brubeck's 'Unsquare Dance' is spectacularly reproduced with the crisp and sharp drum-taps and handclaps in perfect sync with the bass line and piano. With 'Take Five,' the breathtakingly real saxophone appears in the middle of my listening room. All the instrument images are perfect and the double-bass, which is taut and full, balances perfectly with the piano and drums.... [The] Heimdall 2 [is] an excellent choice for a high-end system."
—Hi-Fi Choice, five-star review
Nordost is the premier manufacturer of hi-fi audio cables and accessories in the consumer electronics industry. In 1991, the company first made a name for itself with its revolutionary, flat audio cables, which used conductor solutions developed from unique technologies originally engineered for the aerospace industry. Since its founding, Nordost has continually pushed boundaries, striving to enhance audio technologies and bringing what were once unattainable goals into fruition.
Nordost has grown its product line from one cutting-edge cable to an extensive range of hi-fi audio solutions, including audio and video cables, power products, and resonance control devices. Nordost cables bring the pure, unadulterated excitement of a live performance to home audio systems, regardless of the system's price point.
Nordost has implemented numerous groundbreaking processes and developed proprietary technologies to ensure that the company maintains the quality that it has become known for. By introducing innovations such as Dual/Micro-Mono Filament, TSC (Total Signal Control) technology, and the HOLO:PLUG® Connectors, Nordost has established its position at the vanguard of the of the audio cable industry.
Each of these innovations originated from Nordost's outstanding engineering and design teams, which, like its offices, are based in Holliston, Massachusetts. Nordost is proud to boast that each one of its cables (including the first American-made HDMI and UHD cables) is handcrafted in the United States to serve an international clientele.
