BLUE HEAVEN DIGITAL INTERCONNECT

The safe transfer of digital data streams depends on achieving accurate impedance within the transmission chain. The S/PDIF transmission standard dictates a 75 Ohm co-axial lead, but it is surprising how few cables meet that specification.

The Blue Heaven Digital Interconnect is a true 75 Ohm conductor. Employing a Micro Mono-Filament, co-axial construction. This advanced topology allows us to achieve superior electrical performance and geometrical accuracy, irrespective of cable length. The Blue Heaven Digital Interconnect ensures high-speed, low-loss characteristics and, due to its BNC termination, the 75 Ohm standard is maintained, even across the connectors. Each BNC connector is supplied with a gold-plated RCA adaptor, keeping the cable consistent in performance across any combination of co-axial inputs or outputs. To accommodate even more applications, this cable is also available in a BNC to 3.5mm mono mini configuration.

VALHALLA 2 DIGITAL INTERCONNECT

Digital signals are subject to extremely precise transmission and termination standards. Ensuring that your digital cables meet those standards is vital to achieving the best possible performance from high-resolution digital systems. Valhalla 2 Digital Interconnects employs our advanced Dual Mono-Filament construction to mechanically dampen its silver-plated, solid copper conductors, while also reducing dielectric contact by over 85%.

In order to achieve exact impedance matching, Nordost’s Valhalla 2 Digital leads offer a double layer of silver shielding. The 75 Ohm cable is terminated with gold-plated HOLO:PLUG® BNC connectors for correct impedance matching and is supplied with gold-plated RCA adapters, while the 110 Ohm cable uses gold-plated HOLO:PLUG® XLR connectors. Ensuring that they have the minimum effect on the digital signal, our HOLO:PLUG® connectors are designed to enhance sonic properties and maintain constant impedance throughout each cable. Like all Nordost cables, Valhalla 2 Digital Interconnects are made in the USA.
