Norse 2 Series interconnects deliver a level of performance not previously possible at their price points. Nordost’s proprietary Dual Mono-Filament construction, first introduced on the legendary Valhalla reference cables, creates a virtual air dielectric complete with an elegantly engineered suspension system. When combined with silver-plated OFC solid-core conductors and FEP insulation throughout, the result is the ideal electrically and mechanically controlled construction for ultra-fast, low-loss signal transfer. Optimized conductor dimensions significantly extend the musical performance of the new Norse 2 Series, finally allowing your equipment to deliver its full performance potential, while the consistency of design and materials across the entire Norse 2 Series means that you can easily prioritize a system-wide solution without compromising the coherence of your cables.
Due to an increased number of conductors, the Frey 2 Analog Interconnect allows for enhanced ground integrity, lower noise floor, greater detail, dynamic range, and musical impact. Increased weight and energy at bandwidth extremes means more scale and greater drama, while at the other end of the scale, the blacker backgrounds and greater resolution increase delicacy and intimacy, allowing you to hear further into the performance, making Frey 2 the perfect interconnect for critical signal paths.
“A vivacious suite of cables that will pick up your dozing hi-fi and inject life into it.” – Paul Rigby, Hi-Fi World
"When the subject of conversation turns to the best cable manufacturers in the world, Nordost is usually one of the names that comes up. Their Frey 2 line combines a goodly amount of knowledge and engineering harnessed from their vaunted Valhalla cables, at an attainable price point -- no mean feat, given that they were designed and are made entirely in the US. Their terrific resolving ability is married to a sound of prodigious size and scale, qualities that any listener will be able to appreciate. Norse god Freyr would no doubt agree -- suksess!"

"In my world—a little neck of the woods I call Reality—a cable of the class that the Nordost Frey 2 represents is a damned serious expenditure. However, its cost is commensurate with high-end systems in the $15k–$25k range, the sweet-spot for advanced audiophiles. In that context Frey 2 is an exceptional performer from a proven brand that through the decades has continued to evolve and improve. Audition with confidence. You will not be disappointed" read the review
"Nordost’s reputation, the very professional promotion of its products at dealers, shows, and on social media, is pretty well benchmark. Cables can be difficult to promote, and so important, but also much misunderstood by civilians and disparaged by cloth-eared audiophiles. I’m not sure even the wonderful Nordost Frey 2 cables could convince them, but for those of us who love hearing what fine cables add to our system, the Frey 2 line from Nordost will be a certain and happy upgrade. Very highly recommended"
