Adirondack Audio, HiFi Loft with Luxman, Triangle Acoustics, Nordost | New York 2019

By | November 17th, 2019|Categories: Nordost, Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , |

This room was getting pretty crowded and when we entered the room, we were temporarily stuck in the narrow entryway hall.  We were hammered with bass, which was probably being amplified by the Helmholtz resonance of that space.

Fortunately, when I was able to take a seat in the listening area, the bass dropped to a more proper level.  What was cool about this room was that Luxman was attempting to show a similar line of components to what they showed at their debut at the New York Audio Show 43 years ago!

Nordost Customer Testimonial

By | November 12th, 2019|Categories: Nordost|Tags: |

Nordost is always thrilled to receive and share glowing reviews from journalists and experts in the industry. However, when we get testimonials from our devoted and satisfied customers, it means that much more!

Thank you to Rob from Alberta, Canada for sharing how he went from being a cable skeptic to a cable evangelist.

Originally, I was of the thought that cables would not make much of a difference in an audio system, most notably power cables. My spouse and I attended a demonstration at our local audio store (where we had purchased the rest of the pieces for our system), and we were absolutely astonished at the difference we were hearing.Read the full article

Capital Audiofest 2019 Recap

We were thrilled to join our friends and business partners, VPI, in their reference rooms at the Capital Audiofest. This was an important show for VPI, thanks to the launch of their new flagship turntable, the Vanquish. A full loom of Odin 2 cables outfitted one of the “Vanquish” rooms, including components by Krell and an impressive pair of KEF Muon loudspeakers. The second vanquish room was supported by our V2 and O2 cables, Genesis loudspeakers, and Merrill Audio Components. Nordost could also be seen in the Gershman Acoustic room, where our Odin 2 Cables were sounding fantastic, as always.… Read the full article

Nordost Playlist – November 2019

By | November 5th, 2019|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

I have seen the QSOURCE used with the new QPOINT Resonance Synchronizer in reviews, but can it be used with other components too?

Hi-Fi+ Reviews the QPOINT and QSOURCE

By | October 16th, 2019|Categories: Nordost|Tags: |

When the QPOINT Resonance Synchronizer and the QSOURCE Linear Power Supply were introduced to the public in Spring of this year, there was already a line of people waiting to get their hands on these innovative new products. The first in line was Alan Sircom. In his review, freshly published in Hi-Fi+, Alan describes his experience integrating both the QPOINT and the QSOURCE into his system. Sircom likens our new QRT products to the “cherry on top” of your system.

“The music sounds more ‘right’ and musicians sound more like they are playing together with QPoints in place…you tend to notice an increased sense of dynamic freedom to the sound.”  – Alan Sircom, Hi-Fi+

Alan’s QPOINT and QSOURCE review is now available to read here:  Nordost QPOINT harmonisers and QSOURCE power supply
