Nordost Customer Testimonial

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 Richard from Yonkers, NY for sharing the sonic improvements he experienced when he wired his entire system with Nordost!

Since my introduction to computer audio, starting with the purchase of equipment, software players, cables, digital music downloads, and the addition of several thousands of CD disk conversions to AIFF 44.1/16 to create a digital music library, I reached this awareness early on: ‘The Music’s the thing; the equipment seduces.’

Just last year, I began replacing the cables in my system, which were each worth several thousands of dollars, with Nordost’s Heimdall 2. I knew almost instantaneously there was a difference. Different good? Different bad? Actually neither.  It was not only what I heard that validated my awareness, but it was also how I felt about what I heard. To use a video metaphor, with just two Heimdall 2 what was 3D before was now 3D in 5K. Consequently, I went about replacing all my cabling and reassembling my system with only Nordost. The sonic quality I discern is palpable. Another dimension of enjoyment touched with medicine, magic, and miracles. That translates into sub-modalities of auditory characteristics related to clarity, texture and density of the recorded sound, singularity of instrument voicing, accurate presence of the artist through stage location, technique, and musicality attended by a kinesthetic felt by the listener, resulting in a synesthesia such that the artist or group is in the room, or that one is in their room. An aliveness. I was seduced.”

Richard is a happy customer of Music Direct.  His system is wired with Heimdall 2 and Blue Heaven cables and QRT Power Products.

Nordost is heading to Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2019!

Come and join Nordost at the Rocky Mountain Audio Festival this September 6-8 in its new location at the at the Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center in Aurora, Colorado.  This year, Nordost will be located in Homestead 1, where we will be demonstrating some of the incredible new products that were released earlier this year at High End in Munich. One of the innovations we are excited to share with the attendees of RMAF is the QPOINT Resonance Synchronizer, a revolutionary device that emits a subtle field which impacts and manipulates all electromechanical resonances within its immediate proximity so that they resonate in unison. We will be demonstrating the QPOINT and several other impactful products on a first-rate hifi system, furnished with components from YG Acoustics and VTL. RMAF will be bigger and better than ever this year, and we can’t wait to be a part of it!

Nordost Playlist – July 2019

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 July.
