AXPONA 2023 Recap
Nordost’s goal for Axpona 2023 was to put together a world-class, reference system with some of the best components known to hifi. We are happy to say that we achieved just that! And lest we be accused of being biased, we have the reviews to back it up!
The Nordost room in Schaumburg F, supported by our partners, VTL and Stenheim, and joined by our friends, dCS and VPI, has secured three coveted distinctions of “Best in Show” from Stereophile’s Jason Victor Serinus, The Absolute Sound’s Andre Jennings (as well as an additional “contender” for Best in Show by TAS’ Jonathan Valin), and Jay’s Audio Lab. As Jason put it in his show report, we “scored a bullseye” with our room with a system that “sounded like heaven”. When describing the impact of our system he wrote, “First, my attention was drawn to the natural and real sound of bass. On…Patricia Barber’s “This Town” from Clique, I heard the largest, most timbrally correct, believable, and luscious presentation of a double bass I may have ever heard from a sound system.”
While the most highly decorated, Schaumburg F wasn’t the only room where attendees could experience how Nordost cables impact a system. In the Nordost demo room with Holm Audio we wowed listeners with our live demonstrations and cable comparisons, and we were thrilled to be represented by several amazing companies who chose to showcase their products alongside our cables.
Here are some snapshots of Nordost at AXPONA!

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.
