TYR 2 POWER CORD
Nordost’s new Tyr 2 Power Cord benefits from the extensive research made in creating Valhalla 2, therefore extending our celebrated Norse 2 cable range into the realm of our Reference line. By employing Nordost’s proprietary Dual Mono-Filament technology, which is also found in Valhalla 2, the Tyr 2 Power Cord is able to achieve the most effective insulation method in the industry, putting this cable a step above its Norse brothers and bounds ahead of the competition. This cable consists of 7 silver plated, solid core 16 AWG OFC conductors, which eliminate strand interaction, hot spots and carbonization to ensure optimum performance. The use of these conductors also allows complete material consistency with Norse 2 interconnects and speaker cables.
Like the Heimdall 2 and Frey 2 Power Cords, the Tyr 2 Power Cord uses extruded FEP insulation, which is superior to all other materials in terms of low signal loss and high thermal efficiency. The use of FEP in a Dual Mono-Filament construction guarantees that power is transferred more effectively, while the low resistance of the cable keeps power loss extremely low.
Finally, the Tyr 2 Power Cord implements mechanically tuned lengths. This technique, used in Nordost’s Norse 2, Reference, and Supreme Reference ranges, reduces internal microphony and high-frequency impedance resonance. The benefits can be heard at both ends of the scale– in the sheer impact that comes with real instrumental presence and explosive dynamics, and the color, texture and intimacy that brings a voice or solo instrument to life. The result is the most musically coherent and involving performance you’ll ever have heard from your system and recordings.

Nordost’s Tyr 2 cables are the top tier of our mid-range, Norse 2 family. The Tyr 2 range yields a realistic yet refined performance from your high-end components thanks to the superior technology it is produced with. The years of research and development put into Nordost’s Reference and Supreme Reference Ranges, such as Dual Mono-Filament technology and mechanically tuned lengths, as well as specially designed, proprietary MoonGlo connectors, have trickled down into the Tyr 2 products, while still maintaining Nordost’s core cable design to unify the cable’s sonic signatures. Tyr 2 cables provide the resolution, acumen and effortless musicality found in only the highest echelons of cables at a more realistic price point.
NORSE 2 CABLES
As you advance through each of Nordost’s cable ranges, what you find is a progressive build upon the fundamental elements of great cabling. The Norse 2 family is the second tier in Nordost’s line, delivering the depth, precision and nuance previously only found in live performances.
Like Leif cables, the Norse 2 family uses silver-plated, OFC solid core conductors, extruded FEP insulation and a mechanically tuned construction. However, Norse 2 employs even further technological advances, unlocking the full potential a hifi audio system has to offer.
After years of extensive research and development, Nordost has perfected a proprietary technique called Mono-Filament technology that creates a virtual air dielectric by winding an FEP filament in a precise spiral around each individual conductor before extruding an outer FEP “sleeve” around it. By minimizing contact with the conductor, Mono-Filament technology lessens dielectric absorption while enhancing mechanical damping and geometrical precision.
In addition, Norse 2 family cables are the first to use asymmetrical grounding across the board, lowering the noise floor by increasing the ground quality. Nordost has also taken a step beyond its original mechanically tuned construction and introduced mechanically tuned lengths, reducing internal microphony and high-frequency impedance resonance.
