Nordost at High End 2024 in Munich – Recap

A month out from High End in Munich, and we are still beaming from the results of the show! This year Nordost surprised show-goers with the exciting introduction of our Leif 3 series – the next evolution of our entry-level product lines. Consumers were thrilled to see a refresh of our White Lightning, Purple Flare, Blue Heaven, and Red Dawn power cords, analog interconnects, and speaker cables, which have been a benchmark in the hifi industry for over 3 decades! 

Nordost was ever-present as always, this year at High End. Our cables were featured in over a dozen amazing systems, with partners such as Raidho, VTL, dCS, Hegel, Moon by Simaudio, Stenheim, and our incredible German distributor, Audio Reference. And, as always, we were included in some of the rooms deemed ‘best-of show’ by well-respected industry reviewers. It’s always an honor to be selected to exhibit alongside these giants of the hifi industry, who have their pick of cable brands, and we are thrilled to have made fantastic sound with them all, once again. 

For those of you who were unable to visit High End this year, we have put together some of our favorite pictures for you to enjoy, right here!

AXPONA 2024 Recap – Best Sound honors and photos from the show

After last year’s showing at Axpona 2023, we knew it would be nearly impossible to outdo ourselves in 2024. However, the results from the press and showgoers alike are in, and we are ecstatic with the results. With three Best in Show: Best Sound commendations from The Absolute Sound alone (Robert HarleyAndre Jennings, and Jonathan Valin), a Best of Axpona 2024 Blue Note Award from enjoythemusic.com, as well as fantastic write-ups from Stereophile, hifi+, and several more publications, we have made the impossible happen and surpassed even our own expectations!

The Nordost room in Schaumburg F boasted a world class, reference-level system featuring Stenheim loudspeakers, components from VTL, dCS, and VPI, and, of course, audio cables, power components, and audio enhancers by Nordost. As the editor of the hi-fi+, Alan Sircom put it, this system was nothing short of “beguiling”.

Beyond the dream-worthy system waiting for them in Schaumburg F, visitors of the Nordost room were met with unique auditory experiences. On Saturday night, we hosted an after-hours listening session of Pink Flyod’s The Dark Side Of The Moon and Wish You Were Here, in honor of ‘Dark Side’s 50th Anniversary. Then, on Sunday, we hosted three noteworthy events: a special listening of a test lacquer for an upcoming piano recording and talk-back with VDM Sound Group, a live saxophone performance with Jerome Sabbagh accompanied by his own recording, and a curated listening session with Qobuz!

And that’s only what happened in Schaumburg F! Nordost was also featured in over seven more, amazing systems, including our own demonstration room, Vinnie Rossi (with two more Best-of-Shows to its name!), Morel, Sonner Audio, Lumin, Holm Audio’s rooms, Antal Audio, and Music Direct!  

Here are some of our favorite snapshots from AXPONA 2024!

High End Munich 2023 Recap

This year’s High End Munich was an overwhelming success. With the release of three, new and exciting products in the QSINE, QWAVE, and QBASE Mark III, as well as a sneak peek at a groundbreaking new power solution, the QBASE Reference, there was a lot to see and hear in the Nordost room. It was great to experience the undeniable enthusiasm from attendees for the projects we have been working so hard on developing. 

Nordost was a ubiquitous presence at High End this year.  Our cables were featured in over a dozen rooms, including some of the best-sounding rooms of the show, like… CH Precision, VTL, Raidho, MOON, Grandinote, and dCS, as well as being extremely well-represented by our German distributor, Audio Reference. These highly respected companies have their pick of cable brands to highlight their products, and it is always an honor to be chosen by them. 

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

Nordost’s room featured our Valhalla 2 cables and QRT products, alongside products from Wilson, dCS, and Dan D’Agostino:

Audio Reference’s room used Nordost cables in several systems featuring Wilson, Krell, Dan D’Agostino and more:

Throughout the show, product trainers and specialists Bjorn Bengtsson, Alex Brady, and Dennis Bonotto will be performing live demonstrations and answering questions in (Halle 4) Atrium 4, Room E112. High End 2023 should be a fantastic show, and we hope to see you all there!

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 SerinusThe 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!  

Nordost’s main room featured our Odin 2 cables and QBASE Mark III, alongside products from Stenheim, VTL, dCS, VPI, and Lyra:
