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

Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2019 Recap

With a new and improved venue, Rocky Mountain Audio Fest was very exciting this year!  Throughout the weekend, the Nordost room was busy showing off the newest products in our QRT line, the QPOINT Resonance Synchronizer and the QSOURCE Linear Power Supply, to a packed room in Homestead 1. These demonstrations were supported by a dynamic and captivating system, put together by some of the most prominent US-based hifi manufactures in the industry: YG Acoustics, VTL, VPI, and of course, Nordost. Thank you to all of the companies who chose to use Nordost in their rooms this past weekend to make their systems sing, and thank you to our partners in Homestead 1 for making this show such a success. When you get all kinds of people who are passionate about great sound in one room, the results speak for themselves!

If you were not able to attend RMAF this year, here are some shots from the weekend:

As always, the Hong Kong High-End Audio Visual Show was an amazing success! We are always impressed with the number of audiophiles who come out to Hong Kong to see hifi’s latest innovations, and we couldn’t ask for a better team to represent us at this show. Radar Audio always puts their best foot forward at the HKAV Show, and ensures that Nordost looks and sounds great, supported with a world-class system. We can’t wait to work with them again next year to put on another amazing show!

Nordost at High End 2019 in Munich — Recap

High End in Munich was a resounding success for Nordost. This show was the perfect opportunity to impress a captivated audience of distributors, dealers, and end users with three new, innovative products: the QPOINT Resonance Synchronizer, the QSOURCE Linear Power Supply, and the Valhalla 2 Tonearm Cable +.

In addition to the excitement in the Nordost room, we were asked to be a part of eight other first-rate systems throughout the show by some of the most respected manufacturers in the industry. Here is a taste of those systems, each wired with Nordost Cables.


In the Nordost room, Bjorn Bengtsson and the rest of our team gave demonstrations of the new QPOINT and QSOURCE in a system wired with Valhalla 2 cables and featuring VPI’s new HW-40 Direct Drive turntable and YG Acoustics’ Hailey 2.2 loudspeakers.  


dCS, Wilson Audio, and Dan D’Agostino’s incredible system featured our Valhalla 2 cables:


KEF, Hegel, and Arcam’s system was wired with our Frey 2 and Tyr 2 cables: 


Constellation and Magico used our Supereme Reference Odin 2 cables to bring their sound to the highest level:


MOON and Dynaudio’s system was wired with Tyr 2 cables, (and Heimdall 2 Ethernet Cables):


CH Precision, TechDAS, and VIVID Audio wired their amazing system with Odin 2 cables, and grounded it with QKORE!


Audio Physic used our Norse 2 Power Cords and QRT Power Products to round out their system:


Gershman Acoustics, VTL, and The Wand’s system sounded tremendous with our Valhalla 2 cables:
