Nordost TYR 2 Speaker cable
Norse 2 Series loudspeaker cables deliver a level of performance not previously possible at their price points. Nordost’s proprietary Micro Mono-Filament construction creates a virtual air dielectric complete with an elegantly engineered suspension system. When combined with silver-plated OFC solid-core conductors and extruded flat ribbon FEP insulation, the result is the ideal electrically and mechanically controlled construction for ultra-fast, low-loss signal transfer between amplifier and loudspeakers.
Tyr 2 represents the top of the Norse 2 series. Combining natural dynamics with real-world weight and scale, the results are spectacular without being hyped or exaggerated, allowing performances and recordings, as well as the electronics reproducing them, to deliver every last ounce of music that’s on the disc. With advanced mechanical tuning to aid the exceptional electrical performance of the Micro Mono-Filament construction, Tyr 2’s only competition comes from Nordost’s Reference ranges.
“The Tyr offered an increased amount of breathing space between the vocals and the various instruments… the result was a further enhancement and increased definition of the already holographic soundstage. Sonically, the interconnects managed to get themselves completely out of the way and connect me with the music on a more engaging level.” – Suave Kajko, Novo
Outfitting an audio System with Nordost Norse 2 TYR 2
"It would take a big set of stones for me to try to convince you that you should run right out and wire up your entire system with Nordost’s Norse 2 Tyr 2 interconnects, speaker cables, and power cords. The Tyr 2s are about twice the prices of the Freys, and the Freys are already expensive. Saying that this stuff is not cheap is perhaps the ultimate understatement.
But the Tyr 2s are really no more expensive than other top-flight cables, and in a world of $100,000 amplifiers and $250,000/pair speakers, merely expensive is the new cheap. There’s no question in my mind that the Norse 2 Tyr 2s sound superb. Inserting them in an already great-sounding system previously lashed up with their little brother Freys, I clearly heard consistent gains in all categories of sound. How often does that happen? How much is it worth? With Nordost’s Norse 2 Tyr 2s, I’m extremely confident you’ll get your money’s worth, which in the world of cables, is far from a given"
