Today Nordost introduced its new Valhalla 2 Reference Cables line-up, which consist of analog, digital, and tonearm interconnects, as well as loudspeaker and power cables. The new Valhalla 2 range uses upgraded Dual Mono-Filament technology, along with an innovative proprietary connector called the HOLO:PLUG.

According to Joe Reynolds, President of Nordost, “The new Valhalla 2 cable series concept has been in the planning stages for two years. Since its introduction thirteen years ago, our original Valhalla cable has been extremely successful. It has become a benchmark for performance in our industry. However, time marches on and we have developed new production techniques that improve the quality and precision of our manufacturing process. The Valhalla 2 Cables use our Dual Mono-Filament technology, as well as our new line of proprietary HOLO:PLUG connectors.” Mr. Reynolds went on to say, “The combination of our Dual Mono-Filament technology, coupled with the ground-breaking HOLO:PLUG connectors, makes this new cable series unbeatable in terms of musical performance. The qualities of the HOLO:PLUG connector perfectly match Nordost’s philosophy of low mass design, optimal signal transfer, and perfect impedance matching. There’s always a solution.”

Nordost is the premier manufacturer of high-fi audio cables and accessories in the consumer electronics industry. Since making a name for themselves with their revolutionary flat audio cables in 1991, they have continually pushed “phonic-boundaries”, enhancing audio technologies and setting the standard to which other cable fabricators aspire. Nordost is proud to say that all of their products are built in the USA, including the first ever American made HDMI cable.
