Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2018 Recap

Rocky Mountain Audio Fest was a resounding success. There was a lot going on with Nordost at RMAF this year, so hopefully you were able to enjoy all of it. Nordost installed a world-class system in the Humboldt Peak room, including gear from dCS, CH-Precision, and VPI, loudspeakers from YG Acoustics, and of course a full loom of Nordost’s Supreme Reference, Odin 2 Cables.

Humboldt Peak was also the site of our turntable master-classes— a real treat for RMAF attendees— hosted by editor of The Audio Beat, Roy Gregory.

Over at CANJAM, Nordost joined forces with Woo Audio to give show-goers the opportunity to perform headphone cable demonstrations for themselves!

Finally, Nordost arranged a special concert for Rocky Mountain Audio Fest— a debut performance of a jazz quintet, featuring acclaimed trumpeter, Dave Douglas. Nordost was elated to provide the cabling for, and sponsor, two amazing performances where attendees and industry friends could enjoy never-before heard compositions by Dave Douglas, as well as songs available in Newvelle Records’ LP “Piano Noir”.

Nordost truly had something for everyone this RMAF. If you missed it, here are some photos from these events and more!


The world-class system in Nordost’s room:

The YG Acoustics Sonja 2.2 speakers in the Nordost room were bi-amped with Odin 2 Speaker Cable!

The VPI Avenger (with Odin 2 cabling):

A lot of good looking cables at work!

The Audio Beat’s Roy Gregory preparing for a master-class:

Odin 2 won the Rocky Mountain International HiFi Press Award for best Signal Cable!

Dave Douglas and his quintet put on an incredible show!

The Nordost and Woo Audio table at CANJAM:

We demonstrated our new Frey 2 USB C Cable with Woo Audio’s prototype, solid-state headphone amplifier/DAC— the WA11 Passport!

Two identical rigs were set up to compare our Blue Heaven and Heimdall 2 cables:

More than just USB and headphone cables go into creating a top flight headphone rig!

In Raidho’s room, our Valhalla 2 cables were used to wire the system:

Gershman Acoustics’ room also used Valhalla 2 cables, along with some of our other offerings:

Nola’s system was equipped with Odin!

LA Audio Show 2017 – Recap

Coming off a successful launch at the Munich High End, the LA Audio Show was an amazing venue for Nordost to introduce our new ground unit, the QKORE, to the US market! The demonstrations that product trainer and Nordost sales rep, Mike Marko, performed left show attendees with a new appreciation of how proper grounding can transform a system. However, our room wasn’t the only place to see Nordost products featured! Thank you to our dealers and manufactures throughout the show, who chose to highlight their products with Nordost cables. If you weren’t able to make it to the LA Audio Show this year, here are some of our favorite photos from the show!
