Show attendees will be some of the first to see and hear some of Nordost’s latest innovations including Valhalla 2, Sort Füt, Qk1 and the Heimdall 2 USB 2.0 cable. Salon Son & Image is taking place at the Hilton Bonaventure Hotel in Montreal, March 28-30. Get ready for some great sound!


Why Use Anti-Static Treatment for Audio/Video Cables?

We all know what anti-static spray is: a spray used in order to dispel static charge on your audio/AV gear that will also hinder future build up. But why is this treatment so important?


The slow build-up of static charge is a subtle, yet dangerous problem that undermines the performance of all audio and AV systems, flattening perspectives, dulling colors and inhibiting dynamics. And it is a problem that is only getting worse. Today’s current technology allows for multiple source options and increasingly complex audio/AV systems which generate even more static. By using anti-static treatment on not only your cable jackets, but also on the shelves of your racks, plastic cones under drive units, TV and computer screens, CDs, SCDs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs, you will notice a marked improvement in both visual and audio performances.  Once static has been removed, your system will be able to achieve a striking sense of liveliness and clarity that had been missing before. Anti-static treatment is one of those simple yet effective tweaks that could produce that difference that you’re searching for.
