High End Munich 2022 Recap

It was wonderful to be back at High End in Munich after such a long pause! High End was the perfect venue to introduce attendees from all over the world to the new products we have launched since we last showed there in 2019! Visitors saw our QNET Network Switch, Valhalla 2 Ethernet Cable, Premium QSOURCE DC Cable, Premium QKORE Wire, and QRT Stand Mount, all prominently featured in our reference-level sound system, wired with Valhalla 2 Cables. We were also thrilled to see our products showcased by our new German distributor, Audio Reference,  in every system in their room. On top of all that, we were proud to support several more industry friends as they achieved the best sound from their fantastic products!  

We know that not everyone was able to make the trip to Munich this year, so we took a nice sampling of the many Nordost-wired systems for you to enjoy here! 


Nordost’s main room featured our Valhalla 2 cables, QNET Network Switch and more, alongside other products from Wilson Audio, Dan D’Agostino, VPI, and Roon:


Our German Distributor, Audio Reference, showcased a number of amazing systems using our Valhalla 2 and Odin 2 cables.


Raidho Acoustics used our Valhalla 2 cables in their phenomenal system.


CH Precision’s room used our Supreme Reference Odin 2 cables, and featured our new Tyr 2 X1 cable, designed specially for use with CH Precision components.


Moon’s room was sounding great with our Heimdall 2 range of cables.


The scansonic room featured primarily our Frey 2 range of cables alongside some others from the Norse 2 family.


Hegel’s room used an assortment of our Leif and Norse 2 cables to wire their systems.


TAD’s system was wired with Nordost’s reference Valhalla 2 cables.

AXPONA 2022 Recap

It was so good to finally be back at AXPONA for an amazing hifi show! This year, we were happy to treat attendees to a world class reference system featuring our Odin 2 cables. Feedback from the show has been overwhelmingly positive, and we couldn’t be happier with the sound we were able to create with our partners Stenhiem, VTL, Wadax, and VPI. As reviewer Jason Victor Serinus from Stereophile told his readers, “For huge sound in a huge room, you needed to look no further”.

Thank you to all of our friends in the industry who chose to showcase their products with the help of Nordost cables and power products. We’d like to give a special thank you to the show-goers who attended the Nordost demos in the Holm Audio room, who took the time to learn, first hand, how quality cables can make a difference in a home sound system.

Capital Audiofest 2019 Recap

We were thrilled to join our friends and business partners, VPI, in their reference rooms at the Capital Audiofest. This was an important show for VPI, thanks to the launch of their new flagship turntable, the Vanquish. A full loom of Odin 2 cables outfitted one of the “Vanquish” rooms, including components by Krell and an impressive pair of KEF Muon loudspeakers. The second vanquish room was supported by our V2 and O2 cables, Genesis loudspeakers, and Merrill Audio Components. Nordost could also be seen in the Gershman Acoustic room, where our Odin 2 Cables were sounding fantastic, as always.




Toronto Auidofest 2019 Recap

Nordost was proud to be represented by so many stellar systems at this year’s Toronto Audiofest. Our cabling, power products, and audio enhancers could be found in over eight rooms—all of them a sonic treat! We would like to say a special thank you to our partners in the Gershman Acoustic/Krell/VPI, Audio Eden, Woo Audio, Electronic Depot, Hegel, Goerner/Grandinote, Audio by Marc Jones, and Executive Audio rooms who all featured our cables in their set-ups. In the Nordost room, we had wonderful results demoing our new QPOINT Resonance Synchronizers and QSOURCE Linear Power Supplies in their Canadian debut. These award-winning new products were highlighted in an all Odin 2 system supported by the Gershman Acoustic POSH loudspeakers and Moon by SimAudio components. For those of you who couldn’t make it to Toronto this year, here are a few of our favorite images from the event.


NORDOST ROOM


GOERNER / GRANDINOTE ROOM

“Was I in a hotel room? Couldn’t tell, because the sound coming from a pair of Grandinote Mach 9 speakers with carbon fiber enclosures, a Grandinote 37Wpc Shinai integrated amp , and a Grandinote Volta music server, with cabling by Nordost, completely obliterated the walls around me. I was somewhere else… The sound was so spacious, with such luscious tone.” – Robert Schryer, Stereophile


AUDIO BY MARK JONES ROOM


GERSHMAN / KRELL / VPI ROOM

“This Gershman/Krell/VPI system hit all the right buttons for me: velvety flow, bloom, beauty, layered soundstage, natural sound, detail, and even ribcage-rattling bass. (I felt it!)” – Robert Schryer, Stereophile


HEGEL ROOM


AUDIO EDEN

“warm, rich, and highly engaging sound.” — Robert Schryer, Stereophile


AUDIO EXCELLENCE ROOM


ELECTRONIC DEPOT ROOM


EXECUTIVE AUDIO ROOM

“…the music that filled the room sounded rich and full, even at very low volume, with wonderful color and tactility.” — Robert Schryer, Stereophile


WOO AUDIO ROOM
