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.
Valhalla interconnect cable from Nordost makes the most neutral cable connection ever developed. If you want to hear transparency and musical detail with the most extreme accuracy that your system is capable of producing, Valhalla is the only choice. Valhalla has raised the standard of interconnect design to new heights. This is truly the extreme reference cable.
The Valhalla interconnect consists of 8 conductors made from solid, optimized diameter 99.999999% oxygen free copper that has 78 microns of extruded silver on the surface. The surface of each conductor is highly polished before a high precision Micro Mono-Filament wrap is applied. The Micro Mono-Filament is helically wound over the conductor. A precision FEP tube is then extruded over each conductor. The eight FEP tubes are then bonded with a proprietary technique. A dual layer of silver served shielding is then wound around the assembly. This design reduces dielectric contact by more than 80%. Extremely mechanically stable, the conductors are effectively suspended in inert air, preventing oxidation.
Valhalla interconnect is extremely fast at over 87% the speed of light. When it comes to transmitting wide bandwidth at incredible speed this cable is state of the art. This gives incredible transient response so that no musical detail is lost. This allows one to follow complex and difficult recordings with ease. Valhalla is ideal for use with SACD and other high resolution music formats. Each Valhalla interconnect cable is hand built with “Profi” RCA phono plugs or gold XLR connectors. The connectors used are selected for their sonic properties and minimal effect on signal speed and coherence.
