The Nordost Valhalla Digital Interconnect represents a significant technological advance, producing a reference digital cable of stunning performance and astonishing detail. This new cable utilizes an even more advanced dual micro mono-filament configuration, which further improves upon the mono-filament technology already employed in the rest of the Valhalla interconnects.
The Nordost Valhalla Digital Interconnect represents another advance by Nordost in producing a reference digital cable of stunning performance and astonishing detail. This new cable utilizes a more advanced 'Dual Micro Mono-Filament technology' which improves upon the Mono-Filament technology we have already developed.
The Nordost Valhalla Digital Interconnect uses our proprietary 'Dual Micro Mono-Filament' which greatly enhances audio / video performance. The surface of each conductor is highly polished before a precision Dual Micro Mono-Filament is wrapped around it. This technology uses two FEP Mono-Filament threads wound around one another. These dual Mono-Filaments are then drawn around the conductor in a very precise helix pattern, this introduces more air space around the conductors and insulation contact with the conductors is reduced by more than 85%. Each conductor has 78 microns of extruded silver over solid 8N OFC cores which have a FEP tube extruded over the Mono-Filament. In the 75 ohm version one conductor is used and in the 110 ohm version two conductors are bonded together. A double layer of served shielding is then applied around the cables.
The cable has an effective dielectric constant of 1.38, which is incredibly low, the reference point being air or a vacuum, which has a dielectric constant of 1. The reduction of insulation contact by more than 85% means that the current and digital signal travelling above the surface of the conductor are virtually unimpeded by the insulation material. This means that jitter and timing errors are virtually eliminated. The result is a cable that allows every transient detail of the musical signal to shine through without being filtered or rolled off.
The Nordost Valhalla Digital Interconnect has an extremely wide bandwidth which extends way beyond the upper limit of the audible range at 20 KHz into the Gigahertz range. When it comes to transmitting wide bandwidth at incredible speed this cable is state of the art. This speed and extremely wide bandwidth ensure that no errors are introduced into the digital signal.
This interconnect has a very high signal speed of over 87% the speed of light which reduces phase shifting and timing errors to very low levels. The incredible transient response of VALHALLA means that no musical detail is lost and that complex passages of music and difficult recordings can be followed The Nordost Valhalla Digital Interconnect are hand built in our factory in the USA and are available with 75 ohm RCA or BNC connectors, or gold plated 110 ohm XLR connectors. The connectors used are selected for their sonic properties and their impedance matching characteristics which have a minimal effect on the digital signal.
Roy Gregory from Hi Fi+ Issue 19 said "Improvements in dynamic range, discrimination and musical presence were just as dramatic.. Crisper, more direct, more immediate and far more communicative. And all this from a digital interconnect? The Valhalla Digital is just as impressive as the rest of the range, enjoying the same margin of superiority over both the competition and its own cheaper siblings."
The cable is terminated with the highest quality, precision crafted connector, which is made with a hard alloy that is gold plated. Valhalla can also be ordered as balanced interconnects with gold-plated XLR connectors. Additional lengths are also available for special order as also for BNC Connections; please telephone our customer help line on 0247 6631707 to enquire about our bespoke cable service.
