Hear 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 a 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+
