Thor is an elegant, full rack width, 6-way A/C mains power distribution unit featuring sophisticated circuitry for dealing with mains noise and voltage spikes without limiting dynamic headroom. The unit is wired throughout with award winning Nordost Valhalla Power Cable to achieve optimum signal transfer and performance.
“In turning to accessories, we have a wealth of choices to nominate for a Golden Ear. I chose the Nordost Thor, perhaps because it is one of the “new wave” components that reduce both the noise and grunge level of any audio system…let’s just call it a grunge eater!”
- Harry Pearson, The Absolute Sound, Golden Ear Award, February 2006
The unit also features a unique circuit technology which eliminates product cross contamination, effectively offering any hardware plugged into the unit a clean power supply. This proprietary system shunts A/C mains born noise to Earth without compressing the dynamics of the music. This design also isolates each piece of equipment electrically, effectively giving each one a separate A/C mains spur line. Other innovations such as sophisticated silver plated copper circuit paths and the use of silver solder throughout the system also improve overall performance. Thor also has complete surge/spike protection for your system. In addition, Thor uses Quantum Resonance Technology (QRT) treated circuit boards. This technology aids the transfer function of conductive materials.
The Nordost Thor is an upgradeable solution to A/C mains power distribution. By systematically improving the quality of the input and output power cords the performance of the unit increases dramatically. Upgrading through the range of Nordost's power cables, using your best cable on the input end of the Thor, will offer the most significant performance enhancements.
Thor also features bushings on the base of the unit which will accept a 6mm threaded insert. Nordost Pulsar Points or Quasar Points with 6mm threaded inserts can be attached to the unit to control any unwanted resonances. The Thor offers an unparalleled solution to advanced power distribution.
