Nordost Tyr 2 – Power CordRRP $4, 095 for 1m unit Contact us for advice
Nordost’s new Tyr 2 Power Cord benefits from the extensive research made in creating Valhalla 2, therefore extending our celebrated Norse 2 cable range into the realm of our Reference line. By employing Nordost’s proprietary Dual Mono-Filament technology, which is also found in Valhalla 2, the Tyr 2 Power Cord is able to achieve the most effective insulation method in the industry, putting this cable a step above its Norse brothers and bounds ahead of the competition. This cable consists of 7 silver plated, solid core 16 AWG OFC conductors, which eliminate strand interaction, hot spots and carbonization to ensure optimum performance. The use of these conductors also allows complete material consistency with Norse 2 interconnects and speaker cables.
Like the Heimdall 2 and Frey 2 Power Cords, the Tyr 2 Power Cord uses extruded FEP insulation, which is superior to all other materials in terms of low signal loss and high thermal efficiency. The use of FEP in a Dual Mono-Filament construction guarantees that power is transferred more effectively, while the low resistance of the cable keeps power loss extremely low.
Finally, the Tyr 2 Power Cord implements mechanically tuned lengths. This technique, used in Nordost’s Norse 2, Reference, and Supreme Reference ranges, reduces internal microphony and high-frequency impedance resonance. The benefits can be heard at both ends of the scale– in the sheer impact that comes with real instrumental presence and explosive dynamics, and the color, texture and intimacy that brings a voice or solo instrument to life. The result is the most musically coherent and involving performance you’ll ever have heard from your system and recordings.
Nordost Tyr 2 – InterconnectRRP $2, 695 for 0.6m RCA or XLR Contact us for advice
Norse 2 Series interconnects deliver a level of performance not previously possible at their price points. Nordost’s proprietary Dual Mono-Filament construction, first introduced on the legendary Valhalla reference cables, creates a virtual air dielectric complete with an elegantly engineered suspension system. When combined with silver-plated OFC solid core conductors and FEP insulation throughout, the result is the ideal electrically and mechanically controlled construction for ultra-fast, low-loss signal transfer. Optimized conductor dimensions significantly extend the musical performance of the new Norse 2 Series, finally allowing your equipment to deliver its full performance potential, while the consistency of design and materials across the entire Norse 2 Series means that you can easily prioritize a system-wide solution without compromising the coherence of your cables.
Nordost Tyr 2 – Speaker CableRRP $7, 300 for 1m set Contact us for advice
Norse 2 Series loudspeaker cables deliver a level of performance not previously possible at their price points. Nordost’s proprietary Micro Mono-Filament construction creates a virtual air dielectric complete with an elegantly engineered suspension system. When combined with silver-plated OFC solid core conductors and extruded, flat ribbon FEP insulation, the result is the ideal electrically and mechanically controlled construction for ultra-fast, low-loss signal transfer between amplifier and loudspeakers.
Tyr 2 represents the top of the Norse 2 series. Combining natural dynamics with real world weight and scale, the results are spectacular without being hyped or exaggerated, allowing performances and recordings, as well as the electronics reproducing them, to deliver every last ounce of music that’s on the disc. With advanced mechanical tuning to aid the exceptional electrical performance of the Micro Mono-Filament construction, Tyr 2’s only competition comes from Nordost’s Reference ranges..
