Nordost achieved the near impossible by coming out with a newer version of the Valhalla that pushes the already excellent cable another level up. The Valhalla 2 is better in so many ways. Better design, better built with nicer Holo:Plug RCA plugs and more importantly, better sounding. With the Valhalla 2 you get a thicker silver plating on the conductors and improved conductor design where it increased the speed of its signal transmission. As a result resolution, detail and transparency was improved upon over the V1. This cable was previously used in a two component Ensemble setup where a CD player was connected to an integrated amp and driving a pair of Ensemble speakers (the powercords were Valhalla 2s also) . That setup was one of the cleanest and most transparent sounding system we have ever heard and among the best for a system that cost under $30,000. If you have a multi component system, Nordost recommends that you wire the entire system with the Valhalla 2 to reap its greatest benefit but using just one pair is good enough to bring about some really nice improvement.
Cables are in great condition. We don’t have the original packaging but will securely pack it for safe shipping.
