Valhalla 2 Digital Interconnect

 
Digital signals are subject to extremely precise transmission and termination standards. Ensuring that your digital cables meet those standards is vital to achieving the best possible performance from high-resolution digital systems. The Valhalla 2 Digital Interconnect employs our advanced Dual Mono-Filament construction to mechanically dampen its silver plated, solid copper conductors, while also reducing dielectric contact by over 85%. 

Two versions of the V2 digital are available: a 75 ohm and a 110 AES/EBU. In order to achieve exact impedance matching, the 75 Ohm version uses a single conductor, while in the 110 Ohm version two conductors are bonded together. A double layer of silver shielding is then applied around them. Like all our Valhalla cables, the Digital Interconnects are hand built in the USA. The 75 Ohm cable is terminated with BNC connectors for correct impedance matching and is supplied with gold plated RCA adaptors.  The 110 Ohm cable uses gold plated XLR connectors. Ensuring that they have the minimum effect on the digital signal, our connectors are selected for their sonic properties and their impedance matching characteristics.
