  • Nordost Frey 2 Power Cable 1m IEC

    Norse 2 Series power cords deliver a level of performance not previously possible at their price points. Nordost’s proprietary Micro Mono-Filament construction creates a virtual air dielectric complete with an elegantly engineered suspension system. When combined with silver-plated OFC solid core conductors and FEP insulation throughout, the result is the ideal electrically and mechanically controlled construction for ultra-fast, low-impedance current and voltage transfer.

    The complex topology of Micro Mono-Filament conductors is especially effective in dissipating mechanical energy present on the AC line, which otherwise enters your delicate electronics. Frey 2 adds additional conductors, further diminishing low-level storage and charging effects, creating wider, faster dynamic response and resulting in a more dramatic, involving and realistic musical response.

    Consistency of design and materials across the entire Norse 2 Series means that you can easily create a clearly prioritized, no compromise system-wide cable solution, from wall socket to loudspeaker terminals, with each link in the chain specifically optimized for a purpose, finally unleashing your equipment’s full performance potential.

  • Nordost Sort FUT 4 Pack Kit

    The Sort Füt is a mechanically tuned resonance control device. It is purpose-built to enhance the performance of your hi-fi system and improve upon the standard spikes and stabilizers that are provided with loudspeakers and racks.

    Energy is an unavoidable byproduct whenever components are in use, creating vibrations which can greatly affect the sound produced. The Sort Füt’s proprietary four-part construction eliminates these unwanted vibrations by providing a direct ground path, allowing extraneous energy to escape from electronics. The result: a reduction in intermodulation distortion, a proliferation of musical information, and an increase of tonal and textural details that will allow your system to achieve the dynamic range it is capable of.

    • Aluminum and Bronze hybrid construction
    • Finial Dome to minimize effects of vibration 
    • 3 Ceramic balls (Zr02) to minimize contact surface area while providing physical stability to components
    • Each unit includes 8mm, 6mm, and 1/4-20 Threaded Adapters
    • Minimum Height: 69mm

    While individual units of the Sort Füt are available for purchase, the Premium Package includes all of the tools and instrument instructions necessary to get any system sorted with ease and, more importantly, precision.

  • Nordost Sort Kones AS Aluminium Construction with Steel Ballbearing

    The Sort Kone is a directly coupled and mechanically tuned resonance control device, using a sophisticated new approach to the problem of supporting sensitive electronics. 

    Whereas most equipment supports are referred to as Isolation Devices, this actually completely misunderstands the nature of the problem. The most harmful mechanical energy doesn’t enter the equipment from outside; it’s generated internally by the audio circuits and their power supplies. Transformers, power supply capacitors, even the active devices themselves, all vibrate as they operate – and those vibrations occur right where the fragile signal is, creating timing errors that smear and distort the music. The Sort Kone is designed specifically to deal with this threat to audio fidelity.

    Sort Kones provide a “blacker” background to your music. With it comes greater focus, instrumental color, depth, transparency and dynamic range. Your system will sound more natural and more lifelike, your music more lively and engaging, the musicians like better musicians – simply because you’ll finally be able to hear the notes they’re playing, the way they play them and precisely when. So, release the hidden performance that’s lurking in your equipment.

    • Three-part construction employs superior materials in a mechanically tuned configuration.
    • Bypasses soft feet fitted to equipment to provide a direct mechanical ground path for internal energy.
    • Can be used in triplets, quartets or even larger numbers.
    • Height: 56mm
    • Four levels of price and performance, depending on materials employed:

    AS – aluminum post and base combined with a hardened steel coupling ball.

  • Nordost QX2 Two Field Generator Line Conditioner (AUS Plug)

     

    QX2 and QX4 units are power purifiers that are affective without compromising the peak current capabilities of your power supply or the integrity of your grounding. Each QX unit contains QRT field generators (two in the QX2, four in the twice as powerful QX4) that alleviate the impact of poor quality AC power on your sensitive electronics, limiting RFI and timing errors. Place your QX unit(s) at the heart of your system and you’ll hear a lower noise floor, greater dynamic range, more fluid musical expression and greater space and ambience. QX units allow you to hear more of your music (and less of your system). Used in conjunction with each other as well as the QBASE-Mark IIs, Qv2s and Qk1s, both the QX2 and Qx4 provide a highly effective answer to the insidious influence of poor AC supplies on musical reproduction. And because of QRT’s modular approach to AC treatment, you can add additional units as you go along – they never become redundant. Once you’ve heard the sense of life and effortless musical flow that comes from having QRT technology in your system, you will want more – which is what makes the modular nature of the QRT products so appealing.

  • Nordost QB8 MK2

    QBASE AC DISTRIBUTION

    The essence of the QBASE-Mark II concept is a straight-line AC distribution path, combined with star-earthed topology for connection to a clean ground. By eliminating any form of in-line filtering or active circuitry we maintain the lowest possible AC supply impedance, while a tiny lift in the earth impedance of all but one of the output sockets routes the signal grounds directly to the center of the star and the clean earth terminal. Clearly identified on the casework, this Primary Earth socket is at the center of your system’s performance, literally and metaphorically. It defines both the order in which you connect your components and also, their listening priority in your musical enjoyment, allowing you to further optimize the performance of your primary sources.

    The sockets themselves are mounted on a customized frame plate and solidly constructed aluminum extrusion with machined end-caps that deliver a reassuring sense of substance. But the casework has far greater significance than that, the metal pieces and internal PCB (deliberately preferred to hard-wiring) constituting a single, mechanically tuned construction, designed specifically to enhance performance. Compare the musical performance of the QBASE-Mark II to the competition and you’ll hear just how effective this is. 

    QBASE-Mark II units are available in four different models. US, European and Australian versions are available in four and eight output configurations, while the dimensions of the UK 13A socket mean that it is only available as a six-way unit. Each unit now includes a dedicated fuse, providing overcurrent protection of the source circuit to prevent overheating and system damage. A QBASE-Mark II unit is the perfect starting point in the construction of a high-quality, modular AC supply for your system. Its compact dimensions mean that it can be easily combined with one or more Qx power purifiers and outfitted with Qv2 AC Line Harmonizers and Qk1 AC Enhancers as funds allow, while its slim profile makes it ideal for tucking away behind a rack or mounting on the wall.

    The QB8 Mark II is also available in a 20 Amp (US) / 16 Amp (EU, AUS) version that uses heavier gauge internal wiring in addition to being capable of handling more current.

  • Nordost QV2 SC Line Harmonizer

    Qv2 AC LINE HARMONIZER

    This Nordost gadget does amazing things to a sound system. 

    Plug it in to any free power point on the same circuit as your system and let it work its magic. 

    It seems to me to take a minute or two to take effect and so it can be a little hard to notice the improvement at first. Then unplug it and suddenly background noise enters your system. 

    An early adopter of this product and one of CAV's most respected customers tells me that he noticed quite an improvement on his TV too. More vivid colours and clarity of picture. 

    A great device and very well priced for what it does. 

    The QVIBE, Qv2 is an AC Line Harmonizer that is designed to enhance the musical performance and picture quality of any audio or video system, delivering readily demonstrable benefits at an incredibly affordable price. It can be used as a “stand alone” product or to complement a full QRT system including QBASE-Mark II, Qx4, Qx2 and Qk1 units. The Qv2 works directly on the AC line, introducing a carefully calculated range of pulsed frequencies, clocked from the original 50 or 60Hz waveform. The result is a drop in noise floor, with a commensurate increase in image depth, dimensionality and presence, significantly increasing the realism of both musical and visual performance.

    Like other QRT products, the benefits are cumulative and Qv2s are even more impressive when used en masse. The compact, “plug-top” construction of the Qv2’s mechanically tuned housing allows it to be inserted into any free socket on your system’s AC line – although adding directly to a QBASE-Mark II maximizes the benefits.

    Qv2 units are available in either US (NEMA) or EU (Schuko) configurations, and compatible with 50/60Hz 100 – 240V supplies. However, standard adaptors can be used to employ the Qv2 in other markets. The Qv2 is housed in a mechanically tuned carbon fiber and has high quality gold plated connection pins. It is built entirely in the USA and carries a two-year warranty.

    • Works directly on the AC line, actively introducing a precise range of pulsed frequencies
    • Increases the depth and realism of the musical performance.
    • Lower perceived background noise.
    • Deeper, more dimensional and more vibrant picture on AV systems.
    • Mechanically tuned carbon-fiber body
    • Gold-plated NEMA or Schuko connector
