"We have collaborated with Nordost on numerous occasions, and when we were looking to optimize our new speakers even more, it was only natural for us to look further into strengthening that relationship.
We have auditioned numerous cables from a lot of other great manufacturers of cables in the process, and it all came out to Nordost being the optimal choice in our design. We wanted a presentation that was as open and transparent as possible without any compromise on dynamics or musicality, and we were impressed with the results we achieved. "

"I was introduced to Nordost in 2017 through Newvelle Records, a high fidelity vinyl only record label for which I record and mix every album. 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! I am not impressed easily but I was impressed that I could be that impressed! I now use Nordost cables at EastSide Sound for all of my projects. "
" I love the clarity of sound I get with Nordost. As a singer songwriter, it’s so important to me that listeners can hear my song lyrics clearly. Capturing the best vocal possible is my highest priority in the studio. Hearing back vocals that I’ve recorded on Nordost cables I know I’m getting the highest possible sound quality.
My partner is a sound designer, so he’s particularly meticulous about sound quality. He’s constantly re-wiring the various systems in the house. It’s a good opportunity to try out different leads, amps, etc. Again and again we come back to Nordost on all the systems.
I’m heading back into the studio soon and intend to try out the new range of guitar leads. I have some beautiful instruments— my acoustic is a Taylor 814C (Auditorium model) and I use two electrics: a Fender Telecaster and the Yamaha AES1500. It’s important to me to get the best out of my instruments and I know Nordost can help me achieve that. "
" We started Newvelle Records in 2015 with the idea of building a series of records, of all new music, that cut no corners sonically or artistically. We strive to record and release the best sounding records anywhere. We built a model that treats musicians right and uses the full available canvas of vinyl to make something unique and beautiful. We record all of our records in Manhattan's famed EastSide Sound Studio.
AB testing Nordost's cables at EastSide Sound was a revelation for me. At Newvelle Records we are committed to bringing the best sound possible to our members. Nordost cables made an immediate impact on the quality of sound we were getting. Additionally, while previewing and testing our vinyl pressings we've found that upgrading to Nordost is not a subtle difference. There is an immediacy when you drop the needle that is astounding. "
" The goal of every Soundkeeper recording is to bring the listener to the performance, to create the feeling the listener is in the presence of the musicians, in the space where the performance occurred. Wonderful and magical as many studio recordings are, they are made to sound like records. Soundkeeper seeks to deliver recordings that sound like performances— two different approaches, each with its own rewards.
When I first built my own studio/listening room, I auditioned a wide variety of candidates for cabling and kept returning to Nordost cables. They always allowed me to feel like I was hearing past them, into the recording itself—which is exactly what I sought from the monitoring system in the studio.
With the system now outfitted with Nordost for all power, analog, digital, and computer connections (and a QBASE for power distribution), the listening experience is sublime. And the balanced interconnects, used as my microphone cables at recording sessions, have shown me that my microphones are even better than I previously thought they were. Thank you Nordost for bringing my work to a higher level! "
" The most vital thing I have come to appreciate over the years is how precious the microphone signal is. I cannot tell you how everything that we now record has been lifted by leaps and bounds by using Nordost’s Ax Angel microphone cables. We have carried out many A/B tests and have always voted for the musicality and sheer foot tapping fun that our recordings now have, when made using these great cables. I now never leave home without them! In fact, our most recent Direct Cut album (which we also recorded in Double DSD and PMC for download release), featuring audiophile icon Eleanor McEvoy, was recorded using Nordost cables, and the sound is fantastic!
