Nordost at the Sound and Vision Bristol Show – Recap

It was great to take part in another Bristol Show, the UKs longest running audio show!  This year, in the Nordost room, show goers were able to sit through several demonstrations, including Sort Kone, QRT, USB and Power Cord comparisons. Thank you to all of our friends in the industry who decided to wire their systems with Nordost cables, and to our wonderful distributor, Atacama, for representing us so well! If you weren’t able to make the show, here are a few images of Nordost cables in action throughout the weekend.

“Thank you. I must say I was never a ‘high end’ cable believer. I setup my new system (all tube) first with cheap cables. Then replaced them with the Nordost cables (power, all interconnects, speaker) and wow what a difference. I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t heard it for myself. Truly amazing. Even my wife was shocked at the difference. Keep up the great work!”  -  John Mayhew
