Valhalla Reference Digital Interconnect

 
The surface of each conductor is highly polished before a precision dual micro mono-filament is wrapped around it. This technology uses two FEP mono-filament threads wound around one another. These dual Mono-Filaments are then drawn around the conductor in a very precise helix pattern. This introduces more air space around the conductors and insulation contact with the conductors is reduced by more than 85%. Each conductor has 78 microns of extruded silver over a solid 8N OFC core. In the 75 Ohm version a single conductor is used, while in the 110 Ohm version two conductors are bonded together. A double layer of silver shielding is then applied around them. The cable has an effective dielectric constant of 1.38, which is incredibly low, the reference point being air or a vacuum, which has a dielectric constant of 1. The reduction of insulation contact by more than 85% means that the current and digital signal traveling above the surface of the conductor are virtually unimpeded by the insulation material. This means that jitter and timing errors are virtually eliminated. The result is a cable that allows every transient detail of the musical signal to shine through without being filtered or rolled off. VALHALLA Digital interconnect cables are hand built in our factory in the USA, and are available with 75 Ohm RCA or BNC connectors, or gold plated 110 Ohm XLR connectors. These are selected for their sonic properties and their impedance matching characteristics, ensuring that they have the minimum effect on the digital signal.
