Nordost's sole digital cable in the impressive new Norse 2 line, Heimdall 2 delivers the detail and depth demanded by discerning digital diehards. Digital data transfer requires precise impedance matching in both cable and connectors. Manufactured entirely in the USA, the Heimdall 2 digital cable is optimized for digital signal transfer and uses a silver-plated solid OFC conductor suspended in Nordost's proprietary, precision Micro Mono-Filament construction with a full coverage coaxial shield. Heimdall 2 provides a true 75 Ohm signal path for digital data, resulting in clearly audible sonic and musical improvements. The result is an ultra high-speed, low loss cable specifically designed to deliver the best possible performance from today's high-resolution digital audio sources. They may be "only ones zeros," but poor impedance matching has a dramatic impact on the accuracy with which these digits are passed from one electronic device to another. Heimdall 2 guarantees above all accuracy and precision in any digital setup.
Heimdall 2 is terminated with S/PDIF connectors, but special gold-plated RCA adapters are included.
