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 Giovanni from Calabria, Italy for introducing Nordost products into his top-of-the-line system.  We are happy to hear that, with our help, he has finally been able to say “goodbye” to listening fatigue and “hello” to goose-bump-inducing realism. 

“I have always been attracted to Nordost products. Whenever I have listened to them in my friend’s systems or in my hifi dealer’s listening room, I have always appreciated the refinement they bring.

I had set up my top-of-the-line Burmester system with great satisfaction, using Burmester’s own silver wiring. I knew that if I used Nordost cables, I would be able to achieve something much more…

The electronics sounded as if they had a turbo power supply, the black became much darker, and both the electrical and musical silences increased. The soundstage became both wider and deep, and the instrumentalists started to come to life, almost as though you could touch them and actually see them be played. The instruments are sculpted in their artistic position, the bass acquired a crazy elegance, full of body and control (never furious lines), and even the voices have an unbelievable realism that is truly thrilling and goosebump-inducing.

The Nordost products in my Burmester system have led me to such great satisfaction that I listen to music for entire days, and without getting fatigued. I can confirm with great satisfaction that Nordost and Burmester are a perfect match of the highest quality.”

Giovanni uses: Valhalla 1, Tyr 2Reference Bi-Wire Jumpers, and Sort Kones

Positive Feedback Reviews the QNET Network Switch

We are pleased to share yet another great QNET review, published last month by Positive Feedback. Marshall Nack, who has been working his way through the Nordost QRT product line, couldn’t wait to get his hands on our new ethernet switch. In his review, Marshall almost couldn’t believe the impact that the QNET had on his system, “…it was clearly a move forward with small improvements across the board, and one major shift. The transformation of soundstage depth was extraordinary, as flat space became deep. The impression of 3D was so great it caused me to question, could this could be an artifact?”. However, after listening to track after track, he was assured that it was not an artifact at all, just clear improvement.

“When Nordost released their QNET Ethernet Switch, I was immediately interested. I suspected it would impact the sound in similar ways as their QSOURCE Linear Power Supply, and heard it do exactly that. Both components are particularly good at resolving atmosphere, low-level detail, and timbral finesse. The QNET is amazing at reproducing space and dimension…using them in tandem brings you better sound. ” – Marshall Nack, Positive Feedback

Video: Sort Kones – Introduction and Placement Guide

Have you heard about Nordost Sort Kones, but want to get a better idea about how they will improve your home audio system? Or do you own a set of Kones already, but are unsure about where to place them for the best results? 

Our new video, “Nordost Sort Kones – Introduction and Placement Guide” serves as a perfect introduction to these anti-vibration, resonance control devices. In viewing this video, you will learn what Sort Kones are, what they do, and how they will impact your system’s performance. This video also serves as a helpful set-up guide so that current (and soon to be) owners of Sort Kones know that they are using our product properly and can ensure that they are maximizing the performance of their sound systems.

Introducing the QNET Stand

Nordost’s new QNET Stand is the perfect accessory for our QNET Network Switch. The QNET Stand allows you to maximize the performance of your QNET by supporting it with our award-winning Sort Kones. While the QNET has been designed to be the quietest Network Switch available on the market (a designation which is supported by the rave reviews it has received), it is still an electrical component. As such, improvements can be made!

Nordost’s Network Switch has a uniquely intricate and sensitive design, comprised of almost 200 components! Each of these components introduce their own micro vibrations which, when combined, have an impact on noise. As audiophiles, we strive for perfection. That’s where Nordost’s QNET Stand comes into play. In combining the QNET, QNET Stand, and Nordost Sort Kones, you will be able to achieve a virtually noiseless digital experience, separating the music from its background.
