Meet the Nordost range of cables
Nordost offers a diverse range of cable products, well suited for all audio and home theatre systems and budgets.  Its cables are arranged into four product families – Leif, Norse 2, Reference and Supreme Reference.  Each successive family builds upon the technology used in the previous, improving the performance as you move up the lines.

•   The Leif family is comprised of the White Lightening, Purple Flare, LS Blue Heaven and LS Red Dawn products.  This series utilizes a solid cable core, silver-plated conductors, FEP insulation, mechanically tuned construction and proprietary connectors.
•   The Norse 2 family is comprised of the Heimdall 2, Frey 2 and Tyr 2 products.  This series uses all of the above plus Nordost’s proprietary Micro Mono-Filament cable construction, mechanically tuned lengths and patented MoonGlo connectors.
•   The Valhalla Reference family consists of the Valhalla and Valhalla 2 products.  This series uses all of the above but upgrades to Dual Mono-Filament construction, proprietary Holo:Plug connectors and uses asymmetrical grounding on interconnects.
•   The Odin Supreme Reference is Nordost’s flagship family of cables.  This series uses all of the above (with the exception of the Holo:Plug) and adds TSC (Total Signal Control) technology and ART (Advanced Resonance Technology).

Nordost resonance control devices – why is resonance control important in your system?
It’s no secret that mechanical vibration degrades the performance of individual components and whole sound systems drastically. One way to minimize this negative effect is through the use of isolation devices, separating the component from outside forces that would harm sound integrity.  Nordost, however, takes a different approach to solving this problem. The company believes that the most harmful mechanical energy doesn’t enter the equipment from the outside – it’s generated internally by audio circuits and power supplies in components, as well as drivers and crossovers in loudspeakers. To solve these problems Nordost has developed a range of resonance control devices. Both Nordost’s Sort Kones and Sort Füt units are mechanically tuned resonance control devices that act as mechanical diodes, creating a direct ground path that allows extraneous energy to escape from the electronics. Without these disruptive vibrations, your system will sound more natural and lifelike, your music more lively and engaging.  You will be left exceedingly satisfied with the performance achieved by your audio system.Nordost Qrt Qx2 (Custom)
