NORDOST ODIN GOLD CABLE RANGE IS THE BRAND’S NEW SUPREME REFERENCE

Nordost has launched their new flagship ‘supreme reference’ range of cables, Nordost Odin Gold.

Revealed at the Hong Kong High End Audio Visual Show last weekend,  Nordost Odin Gold advances the technology generated throughout the development of the Odin 2 range and improves upon its elemental composition. With this new cable range comes the introduction of a new material to Nordost’s design philosophy, gold.

NORDOST ODIN GOLD

Odin Gold cables harness all of Nordost’s technological advances, innovative manufacturing techniques, and revolutionary, proprietary materials.

NORDOST ODIN GOLD POWER CORD

The Odin Gold Power Cord is constructed using seven gold-plated, close tolerance, 14 AWG 99.999999% oxygen free copper conductors. Nordost’s patented Dual Mono-Filament technology creates a virtual air dielectric between the extruded FEP insulation and each individual conductor. Nordost’s gold-plated TSC technology is then carried throughout the cable and into its purpose-built, 100% shielded, gold-plated HOLO:PLUG® connector. Odin Gold Power Cords are available with gold-plated HOLO:PLUG® US (Nema), EU (Schuko), AUS or UK to HOLO:PLUG® IEC-C15 or IEC-C19 terminations.

The retail price is $34,999.99 for a 1.25 meter length; additional 1.25 meter increments are $9,500.00.

NORDOST ODIN GOLD ANALOGUE INTERCONNECTS

Odin Gold Analogue Interconnects consist of ten gold-plated, 23 AWG 99.999999% OFC conductors, each utilizing proprietary Dual Mono-Filament technology, precise FEP extrusion, and gold-plated TSC shielding. Nordost’s patented, gold-plated HOLO:PLUG® connectors, in both phono and balanced varieties, are added.

Notably, the low mass RCA HOLO:PLUG® features a dual ring design which creates an “asymmetrically balanced” cable. Gold-plated pins, also present in the XLR termination, reduce vibrations, and eddy currents. The retail

price is $34,999.99 for a 0.6 meter pair; additional half meter stereo increments are $5,000.00.

NORDOST ODIN GOLD TONEARM CABLE +

The Odin Gold Tonearm cable’s construction consists of four, gold-plated, solid core 23 AWG 99.999999% OFC conductors, wrapped in a patented Dual Mono-Filament suspension. The conductors are then individually shielded using Nordost’s  gold-plated TSC technology, allowing for 100% coverage and protection from external pollution (such as RFI and EFI) and crosstalk. Nordost’s Odin Gold Tonearm Cable + uses a two-prong grounding approach.

Firstly, Nordost say their flagship tonearm cable runs a fully isolated bond ground throughout the cable which can connect the chassis of the turntable and phono-stage, creating a secure, low noise connection between the two components.

The second approach ensures that the gold tonearm cable will be able to address any grounding need, regardless of the unique construction of the components in the sound system. Each Odin Gold Tonearm Cable + will include two detachable, gold-plated ground whips, complete with Dual Mono-Filament technology and gold-plated TSC shielding. When needed, these ground whips connect to the shielding of the tonearm cable, totally eliminating any noise that could be introduced during signal transfer. The Odin Gold Tonearm Cable + is terminated with customized, extremely low mass, gold-plated HOLO:PLUG® connectors which include straight or 90° Din, XLR and RCA terminations.

The retail price is $21,999.99 for a 1.25 meter length; additional meter increments are $6,000.00.

NORDOST ODIN GOLD LOUDSPEAKER CABLE

Odin Gold Loudspeaker Cables begin with a base constructed using 28 gold-plated, solid core 20 AWG 99.999999% OFC conductors. Each conductor takes advantage of Nordost’s Dual Mono-Filament technology and is encased in a high purity FEP extrusion. However, in contrast to Nordost’s previous loudspeaker cables, Odin Gold Loudspeaker Cables feature a tiered-termination process which eases the transition from cable to connector over several stages. This process minimizes the conversion points of conductors, using eight gold-plated, 14 AWG 99.999999% OFC conductors on either end of the cable. In decreasing the number of conductors without decreasing the overall gauge, Nordost aims to eliminate overcrowding and creates orderly and precise connection points, while decreasing the impedance introduced. Odin Gold Loudspeaker Cables are terminated using Nordost’s gold-plated HOLO:PLUG® spade and Z-plug banana connectors.

The retail price is $54,999.99 for a 1.5-meter length; additional half-meter stereo increments are $8,000

Odin Gold Bi-Wire Jumpers have an identical construction to the base of the Odin Gold Loudspeaker Cable.

The retail price for Odin Gold Bi-Wire Jumpers is $13,999.99 for a 0.33 meter set.
