Al Griffin reviews Purple Flare for SoundStage!Access

Review Banner-Purple Flare_wide

We love it when cable skeptics review our products. Al Griffin was wary to concentrate on cabling when first tasked by Soundstage! to review our Purple Flare Interconnects and Speaker Cables. However, after taking the time to study the impact that Nordost cables brought to his sound system, he admittedly “crossed a threshold”. The tonal separation between vocals and individual instruments, the increased clarity, and the three-dimensional quality that Purple Flare brought to the performance was undeniable.

“I heard differences almost from the get-go, and those differences were improvements: better resolution of low-level details, and better spatial definition.” 

Al’s Purple Flare review is now available to read on the Nordost website here:  Nordost’s Leif Purple Flare Speaker Cables and Interconnects

Nordost Playlist – December 2017

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). So we thought this would be a perfect opportunity to share our favorite songs of the moment. Some may be classics, some may be brand new, some may not even be to your taste, but one thing is for sure …it’s all great music.

Here are some of the songs that we will have on rotation this December.
