Last month, Radar Audio, our standout distributor in Hong Kong, held one such event in Macau. This exclusive audio event, featured top-tier brands including PS Audio, dCS, Magico, Constellation Audio, Hifi Stay, roon, and, of course, Nordost.

High End 2018 in Munich – Recap

IMG_4701


This year at the High End show in Munich, we decided to impress show-goers with a truly world class sound system. This remarkable system featured Raidho D4.1 loudspeakers, components by Simaudio, including an imposing pair of Moon 888 Power Amplifiers, a VPI Avenger reference turntable (made with Nordost’s internal tonearm wire), Nordost Sort System  resonance control devices, QRT power products, which highlighted our QKRORE Ground Units, and, of course, a full loom of Supreme Reference, Odin 2 cables. In addition to demonstrations, we had the opportunity to celebrate our recent collaboration with Newvelle Records by spinning a selection of LPs from their first two seasons of box sets! It’s always a joy to go to Munich to share the outstanding sound our products are capable of producing with our friends and partners from around the world. We also want to say a special “thank you” to our fellow manufacturers who chose to showcase their products using Nordost cables! If you weren’t able to make it to Germany this year, here are some pictures from High End 2018 to enjoy at home.

EastSide Sound recording studio installs Nordost cables! [WATCH]

Nordost cables make a difference. Thanks to the series of live product demonstrations and cable comparisons performed worldwide at trade shows and dealer events, many hifi enthusiasts have had the opportunity to hear this difference for themselves — not to mention the improvements that people experience when introducing Nordost products into their own homes! However, there is one aspect of the chain that people have not been able to hear Nordost’s impact on — the musical recordings themselves.

A few years ago, Nordost launched its first range of pro audio cables, Ax Angel. Ax Angel studio recording cables are constructed using the same design philosophy and technology as our hifi audio cables, allowing musicians and recording engineers to fully capture music in its original state. This is what the Chief Engineer at EastSide Sound, Marc Urselli discovered when we initially installed Nordost cables in his recording studio, in order to record Newvelle Records’ fourth season. Once the cables were in place, we thought it would be fun for Marc to conduct an A/B test to hear the difference for himself. As a five-time nominated and three-time Grammy Award winning recording and mixing engineer, we wanted to hear his expert opinion.

I was initially skeptical about the fact that an audio cable might be able to make more than just a subtle difference in sound. When I got to test these cables I was blown away by how big the difference actually was. It wasn’t just a subtle thing that only an audio engineer or an audiophile would hear, but a clear improvement in the overall frequency response of the signal that EVERYONE can hear! Sound comes through without restriction, in its full, bold, rich and wide original state! More low end, more high end and more of EVERYTHING!  – Marc Urselli

Nordost has captured the installation and A/B test on video, for you to enjoy:
