The Valhalla 2 Reference Speaker Cable consists of twenty-eight conductors divided into four groups of seven. Each conductor is made from solid core 99.999999% oxygen free copper and plated with 85 microns of silver. A Dual Mono-Filament wrap is applied and helically wound around each conductor before a precision FEP jacket is extruded over the outside. The transmission speed of the cable is extremely fast, at 97% the speed of light.

Valhalla 2 exemplifies state of the art technology with very wide bandwidth signals and minimum phase shift. It delivers incredible transient response and dynamic resolution, preserving depth of musical detail and allowing listeners to follow complex recordings with ease. The Valhalla 2 Reference Speaker Cable is terminated with HOLO:PLUG ® gold-plated spade connectors or Nordost low-mass Z plugs.

Nordost’s most iconic products are our revolutionary, flat speaker cables. Due to the intricate extrusion process employed during fabrication, Nordost is the only audio cable manufacturer with the ability to achieve this unique cable design. The flat nature of Nordost’s speaker cables results in a far superior performance level than that of the commonly seen “round” variety. Nordost’s comprehensive range of loudspeaker cables take every factor into consideration: transfer speed, strand interaction, “skin effect”, and signal loss. The result is a line of fast, low-mass cables with low resistance and impedance that cannot be replicated or out-performed by any other brand in the industry.

Valhalla 2 - Reference Cables

Valhalla 2 is Nordost’s Reference range of high performance audio cables. These exemplary products benefit from three decades of research and development, resulting in cutting edge production techniques and technological innovations.

Like all Nordost cables, Valhalla 2 starts with a strong foundation: silver-plated, OFC solid core conductors, extruded FEP insulation, a mechanically tuned construction, and asymmetrical grounding. However, that is just the beginning. The advances made from that jumping-point are astounding.

V2 cables use Dual Mono-Filament technology, Nordost’s patented process of separating the conductor from its FEP insulation. During production, each conductor is intricately and uniformly wrapped in a twisted pair of FEP Mono-Filament, before being encased in an extruded layer of high quality FEP. This intricate process allows every conductor to be surrounded by its own air dielectric, which is directly responsible for the dramatic increase of signal speeds and excellent mechanical damping of the cable. This technology, along with innovative, proprietary HOLO:PLUG® connectors, designed to be the best possible interface between the cable and component, propels the capabilities of the reference range to previously unattainable levels.
