Odin Gold Tonearm Cable +
Nordost’s Odin Gold Tonearm Cable + takes every element under consideration, from design, to material, to technology, to construction — it even perfects aspects of grounding that remain an unsolved mystery for most audio cable manufacturers. Its 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 unique, 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’s 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.
