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 David from England, who started using Nordost cables more than 30 years ago and “never looked back”.
I first visited a hi fi show way back in the Eighties, when I was very much younger. I remember hearing some big speakers and was excited by the loudness. Music has always been a part of my soul, and just like my heart beat, music makes the soul happy, and this takes you on emotional journeys. The soul in symbiosis with music evokes feeling and satisfaction. What more could you ask for?
I formed a relationship with Nordost cables and have never looked back.
With my first upgrade from silver ocf wire to buying and installing the Nordost Frey 2 speaker cable, the results were unexpected. My partner who also loves playing hi-end Hifi, was struck by how clear the sound was, with deeper, tighter bass and everything in between being more refined.
Valhalla 2 Power Cords were introduced from wall outlet to the power distribution bar (new additions). The sound from the power cables transferred the signal sounds via the CD player through the pre amp and power amps. Frey 2 speaker cables completed the system, culminating in sounds that seemed like they weren’t emanating from the loudspeakers. The sound had been taken to a new level with the addition of the power cables— more space surrounding each instrument, extracting minuscule details from the Moon 750d CC Player. The thing with the 750d, is that it really digs deep, allowing the cables to lay out a road in front of you, clear of the fog from a frustrating noise floor, with road markings that once were lost, now clear to hear.
Note: Nordost Sort Kones, sitting under the 750d, resulted in an even lower noise floor and more tuning. Results will vary depending on which flavour of Sort Kones is used. Four variations exist: Aluminum-Steel, Aluminum-Ceramic, Bronze-Ceramic, and Titanium-Ceramic. When used in different configurations under certain parts of the CD transport, power inlets and transformers, these help to dissipate vibrations emanating from within components.
A project for the future is to get some Nordost Jumpers to help complete the loudspeakers (being tri wired, each loudspeaker).
I’m expected to hear more gain with XLR Cables, in the future when funds allow (may be some time).
If your desire is to feel like you are at a recording studio, listening to a new recording being put down, or back at that live concert, then let Nordost transport you there, once and for all, at lightning speed.
David from England.
Well done Nordost.
