Thor Power Distribution System

We are not offering new Nordost products for purchase at this time, however as a service to our customers we continue to offer some Nordost cables for in-home audition through the Cable Library.
The Thor project has been a joint collaboration between Nordost and UK mains power specialist IsoTek. Thor is an elegant, full rack width, 6-way AC mains power distribution unit featuring sophisticated circuitry for dealing with mains noise and voltage spikes without limiting dynamic headroom. The unit is wired throughout with award winning Nordost Valhalla power cable to achieve optimum signal transfer and performance.
The unit also features IsoTek's Polaris-X circuit technology which eliminates product cross contamination, effectively offering any hardware plugged into the unit a clean power supply. This proprietary system shunts AC mains borne noise to Earth without compressing the dynamics of the music. This design also isolates each piece of equipment electrically, effectively giving each one a separate AC mains spur line. Other innovations such as sophisticated silver plated copper circuit paths and the use of silver solder throughout the system also improve overall performance. Thor also has full surge protection.
In addition Thor uses Quantum Resonance Technology (QRT) treated circuit boards. This technology aids the transfer function of conductive materials.
The Nordost Thor is an upgradeable solution to AC mains power distribution. By systematically improving the quality of the input and output power cords the performance of the unit increases dramatically. Upgrading through the range of Nordost cables, utilising Shiva, Vishnu and Valhalla, prioritizing the input cable first will offer major performance enhancements.
Thor also feature bushings on the base of the unit which will accept a 6mm threaded insert. Nordost Pulsar Points or Quasar Points with 6mm threaded inserts can be attached to the unit to control any unwanted resonances. The Thor offers an unparalleled solution to advanced power distribution.
Thor is available with three different socket versions, with US AC sockets with UK mains sockets and with European mains sockets.
