NORDOST SORT ISOLATION SYSTEM — A TRIO OF OPTIONS
Why should we spend valuable time and money researching and acquiring aftermarket resonance-control devices? Because they can bring about substantial improvements in system performance. While I’m not wild about adding another complexity to my system or finding more ways to spend money, I am also results-oriented and have heard truly . . .

NORDOST SORT KONE BC RESONANCE CONTROL SYSTEM
While I've been a music lover for as long as I can remember, I've also been into audio equipment for many moons, from an over-zealous enthusiast in teenage years, to subsequently morphing into an ardent audiophile to, for over 15 years, the ever-passionate professional reviewer for a number of publications. In that time, I’ve come across all-manner of . . .

SORT KONES — A SCEPTICS BACKFLIP
Well-known American brand Nordost, has more than made a name for itself across an extensive range of affordable, right through to ultra-high end and accordingly priced cables. But it was at the Sydney HiFi Show last month where the brand genuinely attracted my attention. I’d been covering the event and was . . .

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 . . .

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 . . .

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 . . .

QRT QBASE QB8 AND NORDOST SORT KONES
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 . . .
