VuMetre Reviews Heimdall 2 and the QBASE Mark III

We are excited to share a great new review that focuses on our QBASE Mark III and Heimdall 2 cables, published in VuMetre and written in both English and French, by reviewer Vincent Guillemin.  In it, Guillemin talks about the direct benefits that both Nordost’s power supply and cabling have had on his set-up, calling it, in a word, “impressive”. 

Guillemin says it’s “as if the speakers had changed color, in addition to having modified their drivers to better color the timbres.”

Dealer Spotlight: Soundings

Denver, Colorado

By Mike Marko

Professional Service and Selection Meets the Front Range

With over 50 years in the audio business, Soundings founder, Mr. Rod Thompson, has dedicated his career to building music systems with care and dedication. He also provides proper video entertainment solutions as well. The wealth of experience Rod has enjoyed has served him and his clients well over the years.

Soundings was started nearly 40 years ago in the Denver area and recently opened their brand new location in Greenwood, Colorado, a suburb of Denver U.S.A. Most relationships with customers are decades old and the current staff of professionals led by store manager, Jess Engleking, are certainly leading the way for a new generation. Most store personnel have over 20 years experience each in high-end audio and video design. 

Top Brands

The selection of brands that the store carries is much more than just a “product of the month” club. Lines sold by Soundings undergo a stringent selection process that ensures longevity and true value in servicing their customers needs. Artisanal offerings are sought out that offer unique, reliable solutions for all clients. 

Soundings has carried Nordost’s Reference Odin 2 cables for many years, along with the likes of stellar brands such as Boulder amplifiers, Rockport Technologies speakers, Linn, Acora, Kef Reference, Dr Feichert and Primare. You are assured of a competent system including ‘white glove’ delivery and set up. 

The Master Set Process

Rod and crew have perfected the system of interfacing sound systems in real rooms with a scientific process that is implemented with passion and talent. This results in a widely sought after system integration that properly designs systems for the rooms they are in, while taking in to account the whole family’s needs and desires.
