ODIN/ODIN 2 SUPREME REFERENCE CABLES

Nordost’s Supreme Reference Cable Range is the culmination of more than two decades of research and development, achievements and even further advancements in the hifi audio industry. The original Odin Cables redefined sound reproduction by utilizing the most progressive scientific techniques of their time, truly recreating music as the art form it is intended to be. Odin 2 transcends the sonic boundaries set by its predecessor to realize a result that was never before thought possible. Nordost’s ultimate achievement and the apex of cable design allows sound systems to disappear, leaving listeners with every aspect of a live performance to appear in their place. Both families in our Supreme Reference Cable Range will bolster high end sound systems to new levels and allow listeners to finally enjoy the unattainable sound that they have been searching for.

ODIN 2 POWER CORD

The Odin 2 Power Cord is constructed with seven silver-plated, close tolerance, 14 AWG 99.999999% oxygen free copper conductors. Nordost’s patented Dual Mono-Filament technology is then used so that the twisted pair filaments create a virtual air dielectric between the extruded FEP insulation and each individual conductor. These intricately wound and separately insulated conductors are aligned with superb geometrical accuracy and consistency, offering perfect conditions for mechanical resonances. To allow for a faster rise time in the 50/60 Hz cycle and negate any EMI or RFI influences, each conductor is then protected by a layer of silver-plated lapped ribbon shielding. Nordost’s TSC technology continues in the construction of its purpose-built, 100% shielded, HOLO:PLUG® connector, which is provided on both the IEC and plug ends.

The exceptional electrical and mechanical characteristics of this cable produce an overwhelming effect. Incorporating Odin 2 Power Cords throughout your system will result in a seemingly non-existent noise floor, an infinitely black background and the true depth in range that music calls for.

ODIN 2 ANALOG INTERCONNECTS

Odin 2 Analog Interconnects achieve the ultimate interface available in the hifi industry. Nordost’s Supreme Reference interconnects consist of ten silver-plated, 23 AWG 99.999999% OFC conductors, each utilizing proprietary Dual Mono-Filament technology and precise FEP extrusion techniques. These exacting processes, combined with a unique geometrical layout deliver unfettered signal transmission at incredible speeds. 

Nordost’s design philosophy does not stop at the cable itself; its innovative technology extends to its connectors. Odin 2 phono and balanced interconnects benefit from their purpose built HOLO:PLUG® connectors. The low mass, dual ring design of the HOLO:PLUG® facilitates “asymmetrically balanced” cables, while the gold-plated, solid brass alloy pins reduce vibrations, eddy currents and harmful non-conductive elements when mated to other components. The combination of these aspects produces unprecedented resolution and seamless transfer of information, so that every nuance of musical detail is captured.

ODIN 2 TONEARM CABLE

Audiophiles who have an appreciation for classic, two-channel systems understand the importance of a high-end tonearm cable. Due to its location at the front of the signal chain, any compromises made in the construction and termination of a tonearm cable will lead to a dramatic degradation in the cable’s performance. Tonearm cables are responsible for the most delicate signals generated throughout a sound system. In fact, the output of a typical moving-coil cartridge is about 10,000 times smaller than that of a CD player. The Odin 2 Tonearm Cable is the perfect solution for such critical demands. 

The Odin 2 Tonearm Cable consists of four silver-plated, solid core conductors wrapped in a patented Dual Mono-Filament suspension and protected by Nordost’s Total Signal Control technology. These four TSC tubes are precisely arranged around a dedicated ground wire. As with all cables in our newest Supreme Reference Range, Odin 2 Tonearm Cables are terminated with customized, extremely low-mass HOLO:PLUG® connectors including Din, XLR and RCA. In fact, our new 5pin Din HOLO:PLUG® weighs a mere 7.2g, less than half the mass of conventional Din connectors. The intricate construction and groundbreaking innovations used in the production of this cable ensure the low levels of capacitance needed to maintain the integrity of such fragile signals.

ODIN 2 DIGITAL INTERCONNECT

The precision and intricacy needed to produce a truly superb digital cable are out of reach for most cable manufacturers. In order to obtain optimum results from the finest high-resolution systems, exacting transmission standards should not only be met — they should be exceeded. Through implementing the most advanced, proprietary technology and revolutionary techniques, Nordost has achieved just that. Odin 2 Digital Cables ensure the impedance matching necessary for S/PDIF and AES/EBU leads. 

The Odin 2 75 Ohm Cable consists of a single, co-axial, silver-plated, solid core conductor, while the Odin 2 balanced 110 Ohm digital cable is constructed with two silver-plated conductors placed in a twin-axial design. Both Odin 2 Digital Interconnects use Nordost’s patented Dual Mono-Filament technology, offering superior dielectric performance and mechanical damping. The delicate signals they carry are protected by TSC technology, providing a virtual solid shield against harmful EMI and RFI interference. All Odin 2 Digital Interconnects are terminated with Nordost’s purpose built HOLO:PLUG® connectors, elevating these cables to a level never before achieved by digital leads.

ODIN 2 SPEAKER CABLES

The Odin 2 Loudspeaker Cable is constructed using 26 silver-plated, solid core conductors, each taking advantage of Nordost’s proprietary Dual Mono-Filament technology and encased in a high purity class 1.003 FEP extrusion. The conductors are carefully arranged and precisely spaced on either side of a hollow inner core in order to provide a perfect mechanical interface along the length of the cable. The meticulous layout of this flat speaker cable minimizes skin effect and reduces damping, while the mechanically tuned lengths reduce internal microphony and decrease high frequency impedance. This cable is terminated with Nordost’s gold-plated HOLO:PLUG® spade and Z-plug banana connectors to ensure maximum surface contact and signal transfer.
