Valhalla 2 Analog Interconnect

The Valhalla 2 Interconnect consists of 10 conductors made from solid, optimized diameter 99.999999% oxygen free copper, each plated with 85 microns of silver. Its surface is highly polished and treated before a precision Dual Mono-Filament wrap is applied. A precision FEP tube is then extruded over each conductor. The ten FEP tubes are then bonded with a proprietary technique to create a tubular interconnect cable, enclosed in two layers of silver shielding. The V2 interconnect is offered with an RCA or XLR HOLO:PLUG™.

V2 is extremely fast, at over 87% the speed of light. It transmits wide bandwidth signals with incredible speed and minimum phase shift. The V2 cable is state of the art, bettered only by the mighty Odin. It delivers incredible transient response and dynamic resolution so that no musical detail is lost. Each Valhalla 2 interconnect cable is hand built in the USA with HOLO:PLUG™ RCA phono plugs or gold HOLO:PLUG™ XLR connectors.

Valhalla 2 Speaker Cable

The Valhalla 2 Reference Speaker Cable consists of twenty-eight conductors divided into four groups of seven. Each conductor is made from solid core 99.999999% oxygen free copper and plated with 85 microns of silver. A Dual Mono-Filament wrap is applied and helically wound around each conductor before a precision FEP jacket is extruded over the outside. The transmission speed of the cable is extremely fast, at over 96% the speed of light. The V2 exemplifies state of the art technology with very wide bandwidth signals and minimum phase shift. It delivers incredible transient response and dynamic resolution, preserving depth of musical detail and allowing listeners to follow complex recordings with ease. The V2 Reference Speaker Cable is terminated with HOLO:PLUG™ gold plated spade connectors or Nordost low-mass Z plugs.

Valhalla 2 Tonearm Cable

Valhalla 2 Tonearm Cable

The Valhalla 2 Reference Tonearm Cable is designed specifically to pass the most fragile signal in your system. The quality of the conductors, connectors, and the termination itself are all critical to realizing the performance of a high-quality analog replay system. This is especially true since the output of a typical moving-coil cartridge is around 10,000 times smaller than many CD players. The V2 Tonearm Cable’s conductors use the same silver plated, solid 99.999999% OFC copper as the other Valhalla cables but are tuned and configured for their specific task. The following terminations are available: Din-type to HOLO:PLUG™ RCA, Din-type to HOLO:PLUG™ gold plated XLR, and RCA to RCA. An integral earth wire is provided, while balanced terminations are available to special order.

SPECIFICATIONS 
Micro Mono-Filament construction
4 x 24AWG silver-plated 99.99999 OFC copper solid-core conductors
Fully shielded
High Performance FEP Insulation reduces dielectric absorption and increases signal speed
Terminated with high quality 5pin Din, MoonGlo RCA or Neutrik XLR connectors.

Valhalla 2 Digital Interconnect

Valhalla 2 Digital Interconnect

Digital signals are subject to extremely precise transmission and termination standards. Ensuring that your digital cables meet those standards is vital to achieving the best possible performance from high-resolution digital systems. The Valhalla 2 Digital Interconnect employs our advanced Dual Mono-Filament construction to mechanically dampen its silver plated, solid copper conductors, while also reducing dielectric contact by over 85%.

Two versions of the V2 digital are available: a 75 ohm and a 110 AES/EBU. In order to achieve exact impedance matching, the 75 Ohm version uses a single conductor, while in the 110 Ohm version two conductors are bonded together. A double layer of silver shielding is then applied around them. Like all our Valhalla cables, the Digital Interconnects are hand built in the USA. The 75 Ohm cable is terminated with BNC connectors for correct impedance matching and is supplied with gold plated RCA adaptors.  The 110 Ohm cable uses gold plated XLR connectors. Ensuring that they have the minimum effect on the digital signal, our connectors are selected for their sonic properties and their impedance matching characteristics.

Valhalla 2 Power Cord

Valhalla 2 Power Cord

Valhalla 2 Power Cords set the same benchmark standard in their category as the other Valhalla cables do in theirs. But thanks to the application of our latest Dual Mono-Filament technology they enjoy an even bigger margin of performance over the competition. The cable consists of 7 solid silver plated 16 AWG OFC conductors, each suspended in a Dual Mono-Filament matrix. The separate solid core conductors eliminate strand interaction, hot spots, and carbonization, which can occur in stranded cables. Unlike conventional power cables, which have propagation speeds that are less than 50% the speed of light, the Valhalla 2 Reference Power Cord has a speed of 91 % the speed of light. Extruded FEP insulation is superior to all other materials. It has very low signal loss and high thermal efficiency, causing it to dissipate heat quickly. The use of FEP in a Dual Mono-Filament construction means that power is transferred more effectively, while the low resistance of the cable keeps power loss extremely low. The result... truly superb sound quality.

Nordost Valhalla 2 - 4K UHD

Valhalla 2 - 4K UHD cable

The Valhalla 2 4K Ultra High Definition Cable was purpose built, from design to material, in order to optimize high speed digital signaling, while eliminating harmful factors such as jitter, timing errors and crosstalk. The V2 4K UHD cable is constructed using 24 AWG silver-plated, solid core conductors, which allows the flow of ultra-high frequency current, used to carry TMDS (Transition Minimized Differential Signaling), to reach critical speeds for excellent data transfer. Nordost’s proprietary Micro Mono-Filament technology is then implemented, permitting the current and voltage to travel above the conductor’s surface, virtually unimpeded by insulation. The conductors are arranged in a twin-axial, shielded pair design, reducing transmission distance and timing errors, while the shielding eradicates destructive crosstalk.

Nordost’s Ultra High Definition cables are mechanically tuned for optimal visual and audio performance. To further these excellent results, proprietary electronics are implemented and individually programmed to ensure that 4K bandwidth requirements are surpassed on longer cable lengths, currently reaching up to 15 meters. The Valhalla 2 4K UHD cable is an American Made, future proof cable, held to the highest standards of 4K specification as defined by DPL Labs.
