Nordost Sort Kones$69.99 – $369.99
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. 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.
Nordost QRT Qv2 AC Line Harmonizer$349.99
Qv2 AC LINE HARMONIZER
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
Raidho rack$800.00 – $4,000.00
The Raidho Rack is a dedicated stand and shelving system for your music components. It incorporates state of the art technology designed to remove the resonances generated within your components.
The Raidho Rack system combines the best Scandinavian tradition for furniture design with Raidho’s unique and long tradition for vibration and resonance control to form a beautiful and stylish shelving system for your music components.
While supporting your equipment the Rack system simultaneously work as an efficient mechanical grounding of your components, thus improving the performance and extracting the full potential of your audio/video devices.
The shelves can be used singularly as a dedicated amplifier stand, or be combined into a complete rack system.
The Raidho Rack is available in 2 shelf heights. Each level is height adjustable for fine levelling with 4 x 3 ceramic balls per support point at each level for rack de-coupling.
Raidho Rack Low Black $1,600
Raidho Rack High Black $1,900
Raidho Adjustable Feet Aluminum (set of 4 pieces) $800
Raidho Adjustable Feet Diamond (set of 4 pieces) $4,000
Raidho D1/C1 stands (pair)$2,800.00 – $3,300.00
Raidho stands (pair), the best match for C1.1, D1 and D1.1 models.
Special care was taken to provide maximally efficient speaker isolation. The box doesn’t sit directly on the top plate but decouples from the stand via small discs supported on metal ball bearings.
Available in Silver ($2,800) or Black ($3,300).
Nordost ECO 3 Cable Treatment$39.99
ECO 3 is a superb new product from Nordost that treats a problem long ignored in the hi-fi industry; the build up of static charges on the surface of the loudspeaker, signal and power cables. These surface charges can interfere with the signal and introduce background noise into a hi-fi or home theater system. After treating your cables with ECO 3 you will notice music sounds more defined with any harshness removed. ECO 3 is a proprietary formula developed by Nordost but will work with any brand of cable.
