Without doubt this is the Star of the Nordost power cable range for all but the most Hi-end of systems. The Nordost Frey power cable offers real clarity, significant openness, detail and dynamics to all equipment. Once you have heard this cable in your system it's very hard to live without it. Our Go too cable in most High performance systems.
The first cable in your system is the most important, from the wall to component or to power distribution or conditioning components. This cable makes the biggest impact in sound quality.
From our listening tests, we have found between 2 and 4 metres to be the optimal lengths for sound quality.
Norse 2 Series power cords deliver a level of performance not previously possible at their price points. Nordost’s proprietary Micro Mono-Filament construction 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-impedance current and voltage transfer.
The complex topology of Micro Mono-Filament conductors is especially effective in dissipating mechanical energy present on the AC line, which otherwise enters your delicate electronics. Frey 2 adds additional conductors, further diminishing low-level storage and charging effects, creating wider, faster dynamic response and resulting in a more dramatic, involving and realistic musical response. Consistency of design and materials across the entire Norse 2 Series means that you can easily create a clearly prioritized, no compromise system-wide cable solution, from wall socket to loudspeaker terminals, with each link in the chain specifically optimized for a purpose, finally unleashing your equipment’s full performance potential.
