Nordost Valhalla 2 Bi-Wire Reference Jumpers
With their introduction in 2001, Valhalla cables became a benchmark for performance in the consumer electronics industry and a great success for Nordost — but by 2013 it was time for a new Reference range. Over the years we have been able to develop cutting edge production techniques and technological innovations that both improve the quality and precision of our manufacturing process and propel the capabilities of our products to previously unattainable levels. The Valhalla 2 range benefits from the gains of those years of research and development in every aspect of its construction.
While V2 cables remain true to the Nordost design philosophy, using silver-plated, OFC solid core conductors, extruded FEP insulation, a mechanically tuned construction, and asymmetrical grounding, the advances made from that jumping-point are astounding.
V2 cables use Dual Mono-Filament technology, along with an innovative, proprietary connector called the HOLO:PLUG®, designed to be the best possible interface between the cable and component. The combination of these two ground-breaking technologies allows Nordost products to perfectly match our philosophy of low mass design, optimal signal transfer and perfect impedance matching.
VALHALLA 2 BI-WIRE JUMPERS
For true hifi enthusiasts, a system isn’t something that simply gets slapped together without thought. Each component, treatment and cable is chosen specifically in order to reach the ultimate goal: produce the best sound possible. Why would the last few inches of cabling receive any less attention at the risk of ruining the result you have devoted so much time and expense on?
Valhalla 2 Bi-Wire Jumpers are the optimal solution for achieving exceptional sound by replacing the standard metal plates and generic wires supplied with most bi-wire loudspeakers. V2 Bi-Wire Jumpers are even a huge improvement from Nordost’s Norse 2 and Reference Jumpers. With V2 Bi-Wire Jumpers, not only are you maintaining the same technology and cable philosophy, as you do with Nordost’s other jumpers, but you are essentially purchasing an extension of your speaker cables, ensuring an identical sonic signature throughout your system.
