HIFI CRITIC Reviews Valhalla 2

Over the years, our Valhalla 2 range has captured the attention and praise of reviewers from the most highly respected publications in our field. Now, six years after its release, audiophiles are still shocked at the improvements V2 brings to their systems. In the most recent HIFI CRITIC issue, reviewer Andrew Harrison shares the transformation he experienced in upgrading his system from Valhalla to Valhalla 2 cabling:

“Valhalla 2 cables bring an extraordinary upgrade, addictively communicating the essence of music. The essential speed and transparency of Valhalla has been preserved, but with a more dynamic and tonally authentic sound in V2. It’s more colourful where required, and darker when not…”  – Andrew Harrison.

Andrew was so impressed with our Valhalla 2 cables that he honored the range with the HIFI CRITIC Audio Excellence Award!

Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2019 Recap

With a new and improved venue, Rocky Mountain Audio Fest was very exciting this year!  Throughout the weekend, the Nordost room was busy showing off the newest products in our QRT line, the QPOINT Resonance Synchronizer and the QSOURCE Linear Power Supply, to a packed room in Homestead 1. These demonstrations were supported by a dynamic and captivating system, put together by some of the most prominent US-based hifi manufactures in the industry: YG Acoustics, VTL, VPI, and of course, Nordost. Thank you to all of the companies who chose to use Nordost in their rooms this past weekend to make their systems sing, and thank you to our partners in Homestead 1 for making this show such a success. When you get all kinds of people who are passionate about great sound in one room, the results speak for themselves!

If you were not able to attend RMAF this year, here are some shots from the weekend:

Nordost Playlist – September 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 September.
