Nordost Tyr 2 Power Cable
Nordost’s new Power Cable consists of 7 silver-plated, solid-core 16 AWG OFC conductors. The Nordost Tyr 2 design eliminates 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. The Nordost Tyre 2 Power Cord achieves low signal loss and high thermal efficiency. The power is transferred more effectively, while the low resistance of the cable keeps power loss extremely low.
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.
