Purple Flare— The perfect upgrade for the Bluesound NODE 2i

By | November 12th, 2018|Categories: Nordost|Tags: , |

By James Davies of Absolute Audio

Any review of a product in context of the Bluesound NODE 2i will read like a love letter to the NODE itself! The NODE 2i is brilliantly engineered and executed; designed with audiophile sensibilities but with the features and form factor to appeal to a much larger consumer base, the NODE 2i perfectly bridges the gap between high performance audio and mass appeal.

For my review, I decided to use the NODE 2i “full monty”: I hooked the unit directly up to my power amplifier, using the NODE 2i’s streaming services through its built in DAC chips and digital volume control.… Read the full article

Nordost Playlist – November 2018

By | November 6th, 2018|Categories: Nordost|Tags: , |

Nordost is lucky to have a wonderful team of representatives and product trainers who travel around the world educating and demonstrating the effects of Nordost’s products. As part of these demonstrations, it is our job to find an interesting and diverse selection of music to showcase our cables, power devices, sort system and accessories. Whether at shows, visiting our dealers and distributors or even in our own listening room in our headquarters in Holliston, we are constantly getting asked what music we are playing (or if our audience is not so bold to ask, we can see their Shazams working overtime).Read the full article

ToneAudio Reviews the White Lightning Speaker Cable

By | October 29th, 2018|Categories: Nordost|Tags: |

Nordost is often pigeon-holed as a company that exclusively offers reference-level products, but that is not the case. Nordost offers a complete range of products that does include cables that are designed for the highest end systems conceivable, but we also offer cables that are perfectly paired with even the most modest of hifi systems. That is why we are especially excited when we get reviews of our introductory products, so that people can see how transformative our most elemental cables can be!… Read the full article

Dennis Davis Reviews Nordost Sponsored Jazz Quintet at RMAF

By | October 24th, 2018|Categories: Nordost|Tags: , , |

By Dennis Davis, The Audio Beat

Let’s face it—most people who attend hi-fi shows don’t make the trek there to attend live concerts.  Musical performances at shows are usually limited to solo performers who have recorded on niche audiophile labels where the biggest selling point is often the label and its recording process.  Performers who have contracts with Universal, Sony, Blue Note or ECM are not in the habit of performing for a bunch of tired audiophiles, who pay nothing at the door and show up for the concert if they feel like it.… Read the full article

Headphone.Guru reviews the SuperFlatline Loudspeaker Cable

By | October 2nd, 2018|Categories: Nordost|Tags: |

Nordost is happy to share a great review of our SuperFlatline Speaker Cable. SuperFlatline was one of the first cables to put Nordost on the map. This cable became known throughout the hifi industry as one of the most respected high end speaker cables, offering a performance that was virtually unmatched at its price point.  Today, more than 20 years later, its reputation remains the same. In his review for Headphone.guru, Gary Barker was very impressed by the SuperFlatline speaker cables:

“Nordost Leifstyle SuperFlatline cable hits all the check marks: Speed, Clarity, Musicality, Current Capacity, Dynamic Range, Depth and Width of Sound Stage, Image Focus and Neutral Tonal Balance, and therefore deserves a definite recommendation.”

You can now read Gary’s full review here:  Nordost Leifstyle SuperFlatline Loudspeaker Cable.Read the full article
