The Heimdall 2 AES/EBU Digital Cable is a 110 Ohm cable, optimised for digital signal transfer and uses silver-plated solid OFC conductors suspended in Nordost's proprietary, precision Micro Mono-Filament construction with a full coverage coaxial shield.
Digital data transfer demands precise impedance matching in both cable and connectors - a key design principle of the Heimdall 2 AES/EBU digital cable.
Manufactured entirely in the USA, the Heimdall 2 AES/EBU is combined with impedance matched XLR connectors, to provide a true 110 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.
