Founded in 1991, Nordost Corporation is a high-technology cable manufacturer specializing in the audio and medical fields, using precision conductor solutions first developed for the aerospace industry and in conjunction with NASA for the space shuttle program. The first audio product, launched in 1992, was Flatline Gold, a revolutionary flat profile speaker cable whose toughodin analog interconnect extruded FEP insulation made it ideal for under carpet or in-wall installation, but its astounding sonic performance soon established the flat array of solid-core conductors as something very special indeed. Further development of the technology and concept quickly established a range of products across different price points, products whose performance challenged existing notions of the price/performance equation. Nordost also adopted a unique approach to sales, openly demonstrating the performance of their products against the competition.
With Norse 2, Nordost brings the technologies and performance benefits of Valhalla and Odin to a range of real world products, developed to release the performance potential that exists in real world systems – systems owned by real world listeners. Refinements to conductor dimensions, spacing, arrangement, and quantity. Mechanical characteristics fully match the already superior electrical performance. Incorporates genuinely state of the art AC and signal transmission technology into any audio system. Combines high technology, precision conductors and precision construction with the best, low-mass and mechanically optimized terminations. Use with today’s high-quality integrated CD players and amplifiers – or HD sources, high-performance processors and multichannel amps and you’ll be astonished by the musical performances that result.
