NORDOST SORT KONE, FUT AND LIFT SYSTEM COMPONENTS REVIEW
NORDOST SORT KONE, FÜT, AND LIFT SYSTEM COMPONENTS
We’ve often discussed Nordost in terms of a complete, systemic, and systematic approach to audio, but that message sometimes gets lost against the company’s complete, systemic, and systematic approach to cables and power. In fact, the operative word is ‘complete’; ideally, every aspect of the system is taken under . . .

NORDOST SORT KONES REVIEW
Most equipment supports, whether cones, small squares of wood, or pucks of visco-elastic material, are referred to as isolation devices; however, this represents a misunderstanding of the problem. While some mechanical energy may originate in the environment, the most harmful energy does not enter from the outside but is instead generated internally by the audio circuits and other power supplies of the piece of equipment. Transformers, . . .

SORT FÜT
Conclusion translated to English:  If you have expensive speakers or a top quality rack, then the Sort Füt percentage of the total cost does not seem that expensive for an upgrade that really makes a difference. For others it is rather a pricey investment. But there is no doubt that there are differences in how . . .

NEW METHODS FOR QUANTIFYING SONIC PERFORMANCE
The benefits of isolating equipment from external vibration have been known for several decades. One of the earliest specialty products introduced over 30 years ago were the ubiquitous Tiptoes (circa 1984) commercialized by Steve McCormick of the Mod Squad. These devices were machined from aluminum in both tall and short conical versions. Some audiophiles noted improved definition with the use of Tiptoes (usually three or . . .

SYSTEME DE DECOUPLAGE SORT FÜT DE NORDOST
Qui d’entre nous n’a pas tenté d’améliorer, voire d’opti- miser, le découplage au sol de ses enceintes acous- tiques, supports et meubles audio? Ces produits normalement fournis avec des pointes en acier contribuent tant à évacuer l’énergie stockée dans les appareils et ca- binets, les vibrations, qu’à les stabiliser. Pour . . .

NORDOST SORT FÜT
At the time of writing this review, I was listening to my favorite collection of CDs non-stop.  My KEF Reference 207/2 sounded as if it underwent a major upgrade.  The amount of details revealed by my loudspeakers, the spatial presentation of the musical images, their outlines and even the soundstage seem to be taken to the next level.  Don't get me wrong.  KEF hasn't . . .

NORDOST избавляет от вибраций и дает вашей системе новую жизнь
Попытки улучшить звучание уже имеющихся систем предпринимались многими производителями, но все они, как правило, были довольно однобокими, хотя определенный результат приносили. Однако зачастую люди воспринимали подобные устройства как нечто шарлатанское, поэтому широкого распространения они не получили. . . .

For years it was cables, but these days there is little that rattles the cage of the committed audio puritan like mains conditioners and equipment support cones. Reviews of either is almost bound to elicit a rise in blood pressure and a trip to the keyboard to fire off an indignant mail to some audio forum or other. As for tiny, resonating metal bowls that sit on the wall? Don’t even go there. Personally I think it is better to keep an open mind until . . .
