Phono cartridges, with their incredibly low signal levels and clearly defined electrical requirements demand dedicated cable designs. Starting with dimensionally optimized silver-plated OFC solid-core conductors, Nordost’s proprietary Micro Mono-Filament construction creates a virtual air dielectric complete with an elegantly engineered suspension system. Combined with FEP insulation throughout, the result is the ideal electrical and mechanically controlled construction for ultra-fast, low-loss transfer of these extremely delicate signals.
With effective shielding, dual grounding and a full range of termination options in both single-ended and balanced configurations, allowing you to specify exactly the topology required to liberate the musical performance locked in the grooves on your LP collection, this dedicated tonearm lead will finally allow your record player to deliver its full performance potential. It's position, right at the start of the signal chain, and the fragile nature of the signals it carries make it doubly critical, but deliver a double performance benefit when you get it right, while the consistency of design and materials across the entire Norse Series means that you can take full advantage of a system-wide solution without compromising the coherence of your cables, all the way from the base of your tonearm.
Norse Series – the fast track to superior musical performance.
