Norse TYR Series 2 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.
In any system wired with the Norse 2 family of cables, when quality really counts, look no further than Tyr 2. The quietest backgrounds, the highest resolution, and widest dynamic range of any Norse 2 cable leaves the new Tyr 2 second only to V2 and Odin.
“The Tyr 2 interconnects 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
"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"
