Nordost Tyr 2 Interconnect 

Transparency, precision, purity, depth, texture, openness, expansiveness… Nordost’s Tyr 2 loom brings all of this and more ... another word now pops to mind that perhaps best sums up my analogy between wine and audio: transformative. That is perhaps the ultimate thing I can say about any experience. It takes us to another place, another level of understanding—and, in this case, another level of long-term musical pleasure.
— WAYNE GARCIA, THE ABSOLUTE SOUND, APRIL 2020

 

The new, second generation Norse Series interconnects deliver a level of performance not previously possible at their price points. Nordost’s proprietary Micro Mono-Filament construction, first introduced on the legendary Valhalla reference cables, creates a virtual air dielectric complete with an elegantly engineered suspension system. Combined with silver-plated OFC solid-core conductors and FEP insulation throughout, the result is the ideal electrical and mechanically controlled construction for ultra-fast, low-loss signal transfer. Optimized conductor dimensions, and asymmetrical grounding topology significantly extend the musical performance of the new Norse series, finally allowing your equipment to deliver its full performance potential, while the consistency of design and materials across the entire Norse Series means that you can easily prioritize a system-wide solution without compromising the coherence of your cables.

In any system wired with the Norse 2 family of cables, when quality really counts, look no further than Tyr 2. The quietest backgrounds, the highest resolution and widest dynamic range of any Norse 2 cable leaves the new Tyr second only to Valhalla and Odin.
