Digital data transfer demands precise impedance matching in both cable and connectors. Manufactured entirely in the USA, the Heimdall 2 S/PDIF cable is optimized for digital signal transfer and uses a silver-plated solid OFC conductor suspended in our proprietary, precision Micro Mono-Filament construction with a full coverage coaxial shield. Combined with combination BNC/RCA connectors it provides a true 75 Ohm signal path for digital data, resulting in clearly audible sonic and musical benefits. The result is an ultra high-speed, low loss cable specifically designed to deliver the best possible performance from today’s high-resolution digital audio sources. They may only be “ones” and “zeros” but poor impedance matching has a dramatic impact on the accuracy with which they are passed from one electronic device to another. No surprise then, that Nordost’s ultra-close tolerance digital transfer solutions deliver the goods, sonically and musically.
