If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should take a moment to read Steve Dickinson’s review, Nordost Norse cables: Heimdall 2, which was published in the December 2013 edition of Hi-Fi + magazine. Reviews like this are a great way to stay informed and they give you a firsthand account of premium products, like our cables. In this piece, Steve takes a look at our Heimdall 2 range in comparison to the first generation of the Norse family, which is impressive in its own right. We are happy that Mr. Dickenson appreciates the improvements that we have made with our Norse 2 cables.
The Heimdall gives a strong sense of scale and authority, but without adding the sort of mass and inertia which drags a system down…The added sense of impetus brought by the Heimdall brings out the extra little kick from the in-between beats which separate a 2/2 from a 4/4 time signature. Tiny inflections are also better resolved, most obviously in vocals but also noticeable elsewhere. This means performances that are carefully weighed and nuanced can be more affectingly portrayed.
