To improve upon perfection, changes must be elemental. Odin Gold is that change. Nordost’s newest and most advanced product line is a vanguard within the industry. Odin Gold takes the revolutionary technological advances developed in the Odin 2 range, and improves upon the very composition, introducing a material whose stability, conductivity, and tolerance yield transformative enhancements in audio performance. Where Odin 2 pushed boundaries, Odin Gold erases them—producing a realism in playback that would seem impossible from any system, regardless of its components or source material. Nordost’s new gold option is a revelation to reference audio and clearly surpasses Odin 2 as its new flagship cable range. Odin Gold won’t leave you questioning how your system could ever sound so good… it will leave you questioning the presence of any system at all.
Odin Gold Analog Interconnects provide the quintessential interface, linking essential system elements to create a cohesive and inspiring sound system. This cable runs the gamut when it comes to Nordost’s technological offerings, each imparting its own unique benefit towards the cable’s resulting function and performance. The implementation of Nordost’s patented, gold-plated HOLO:PLUG® connectors, in both phono and balanced varieties, gives the Odin Gold Analog Interconnect an overwhelming advantage. Notably, the low mass RCA High purity class 1.003 extruded Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP) Mechanically tuned lay, length and Dual Mono-Filament, TSC design 10 x 23 AWG Gold-plated 99.999999% solid core OFC 18.5pF/ft 0.05μH/ft 100% Individually shielded, gold-plated, total coverage 90% HOLO:PLUG® gold-plated RCA, HOLO:PLUG® gold-plated XLR HOLO:PLUG® offers an ingeniously devised dual ring design which creates an “asymmetrically balanced” cable. Gold-plated, solid brass alloy pins, also present in the RCA termination, reduce vibrations, and eddy currents.
The duality of sweeping technological advances and intricate, precise manufacturing techniques produces an interconnect that promises record-breaking signal transfer speeds while embodying Nordost’s trademark neutral and realistic sonic signature.
