Thank you to John from Washington for sharing a little about his transformative experience with Nordost!


“I must say I was never a ‘high end’ cable believer. I set up my new system (all tube) first with cheap cables, then replaced them with the Nordost cables (power, all interconnects, speaker) and WOW, what a difference. I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t heard it for myself. Truly amazing. Even my wife was shocked at the difference. Keep up the great work!”

Thank you to Steve and Anne from Virginia for sharing a little about their transformative experience with Nordost!


“Upgrading our interconnects and speaker cables to Nordost Valhalla 2 was one of the most significant upgrades we have made to our system.  When we first inserted a demo pair of Valhalla 2 speaker cables that we borrowed from our dealer into our system, we immediately noticed the increase in clarity and temporal resolution.  These attributes have enhanced our listening experience. Imaging is more precise with improved separation between instruments. We have also noticed improved bass dynamics and tonality. We highly recommend these cables and Nordost’s break-in service.”

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.

Nordost Customer Testimonial

Thank you to Paul from North Carolina, who shared his journey with Nordost products, and what they have done for his stellar system!


Unknown-2“I have always considered an audio system as a collection of components – and that consideration includes cables. I see them as such an important part of an audio system that their use can either elevate, or denigrate a system’s sonic performance.

When I tried my first Nordost cable, a Tyr 2 speaker cable, I was astonished at how the sonic presentation was improved. Better definition and clarity, better dynamics and impact, lower more powerful bass— these improvements were most noticeable.

Eventually, I decided to populate the entire cable loom exclusively with Nordost products. Looking beyond cabling, I make extensive use of the QRT product line. I even replaced a $5,000.00 power conditioner with a QX4 power purifier and a QB8 power distribution block.

Today, my system is comprised of Nordost cables and power management products exclusively. On the digital side, all of the interconnects are Odin, from the music server to the amp. On analog, Valhalla 2 from the tonearm cable to the preamp and Odin to the amp. Power cords are about half Valhalla 2 and Odin.  I recently upgraded the speaker cables to Odin 2 and the improvements they yielded were startling.

What I see in Nordost cables is an exceptionally fast product that remains true to the musical signal. By the same token, they are incredibly revealing of transient detail. I think their best attribute is that they in no way hinder other upgrades, such as new speakers or a component. If one such upgrade is undertaken, the user can rest assured that the cable will not stand in the way.

I think that Nordost products come as close as any cable product I have tried in accomplishing what every cable should be trying to do – not change the signal in any way. Put differently, they do a great job of doing absolutely nothing.”
