Phono cartridges, with their incredibly low signal levels and clearly defined electrical requirements, demand dedicated cable designs. In order to deal with delicate signals, Nordost’s proprietary Dual Mono-Filament construction creates a virtual air dielectric around dimensionally optimized, silver-plated OFC solid core conductors. When combined with FEP insulation throughout, the result is the ideal electrically and mechanically controlled construction for ultra-fast, low-loss transfer of these extremely delicate signals.
Frey 2 offers enhanced grounding for even greater detail, resolution and dynamic range, while effective shielding and a full range of termination options in both single-ended and balanced configurations allow you to specify the exact topology required to liberate the musical performance locked in the grooves on your LP collection. This dedicated tonearm lead will finally allow your record player to deliver its full performance potential. Its position, right at the start of the signal chain, and the fragile nature of the signals it carries make it doubly critical, and deliver a double performance benefit when you get it right. The consistency of design and materials across the entire Norse 2 Series means that you can take full advantage of a system-wide solution without compromising the coherence of your cables, all the way from the base of your tonearm.
