Meet the Nordost range of cables
Nordost offers a diverse range of cable products, well suited for all audio and home theatre systems and budgets. Its cables are arranged into four product families - Leif, Norse 2, Reference and Supreme Reference. Each successive family builds upon the technology used in the previous, improving the performance as you move up the lines. • The family is comprised of the White Lightening, Purple Flare, LS Blue Heaven and LS Red Dawn products. This series utilizes a solid cable core, silverplated conductors, FEP insulation, mechanically tuned construction and proprietary connectors. • The family is comprised of the Heimdall 2, Frey 2 and Tyr 2 products. This series uses all of the above plus Nordost’s proprietary Micro Mono-Filament cable construction, mechanically tuned lengths and patented MoonGlo connectors. • The family consists of the Valhalla and Valhalla 2 products. This series uses all of the above but upgrades to Dual Mono-Filament construction, proprietary Holo:Plug connectors and uses asymmetrical grounding on interconnects. • The is Nordost’s flagship family of cables. This series uses all of the above (with the exception of the Holo:Plug) and adds TSC (Total Signal Control) technology and ART (Advanced Resonance Technology).
Odin Supreme Reference
power supplies in components, as well as drivers and crossovers in loudspeakers. To solve these problems Nordost has developed a range of resonance control devices. Both Nordost’s Sort Kones and Sort Füt units are mechanically tuned resonance control devices that act as mechanical diodes, creating a direct ground path that allows extraneous energy to escape from the electronics. Without these disruptive vibrations, your system will sound more natural and lifelike, your music more lively and engaging. You will be left exceedingly satisfied with the performance achieved by your audio system.
Nordost QRT power products - what sonic improvements can they bring to your system?
Nordost QRT power products are designed to alleviate the impact of poor quality AC power on your sensitive electronics. They accomplish this by limiting the RFI (radio frequency interference) and timing errors associated with the AC line, as well as preventing time delay and distortion of the AC signal. The result is AC power that is closer to the desired “distortion-less condition” all without limiting the peak current that’s required by your electronics. The QRT power product range consists of the QBase Power Distribution Bars, the QX power purifiers, the
In a very competitive market, with diverse technologies and designs, what differentiates Nordost’s products from other manufacturers? What advice would you give to consumers who are shopping for cables/accessories?
Nordost puts a premium on research, and thanks to this focus, the company has been able to separate itself from its competitors by introducing revolutionary technologies such as the Micro Mono-Filament construction, the Dual Mono-Filament construction and a variety of proprietary connectors, such as the HOLO:PLUG. Nordost also uses extruded FEP, the most effective insulation in the industry due to its low loss signal and high thermal efficiency, in its cable designs. The company is meticulous in the production of its cables and accessories, and the details that go into the construction of every finished product that leaves its facility.
When shopping for cables and accessories, Nordost advises consumers to “try before you buy”. Nordost is a huge proponent of demonstrating cables so that you can hear the differences that the cables make in your system before purchasing them. Every Nordost dealer is outfitted with the cables needed to provide their customers with a valuable demonstration
