Nordost Corporate History

Founded in 1991, Nordost Corporation is a high-technology cable manufacturer specializing in the audio and medical fields, using precision conductor solutions first developed for the aerospace industry and in conjunction with NASA for the space shuttle program. This grounding in the mission critical fields of space flight and micro-surgery have afforded the company an enviable research budget and an unprecedented degree of manufacturing accuracy and consistency.The first audio product, launched in 1992, was Flatline Gold, a revolutionary flat profile speaker cable whose tough extruded FEP insulation made it ideal for under carpet or in-wall installation, but its astounding sonic performance soon established the flat array of solid-core conductors as something very special indeed

But the latest advance is possibly the biggest yet. In 2007 Nordost shocked the audio world by introducing a new flagship product, Odin. Using dual micro mono-filament technology throughout, but combined in the interconnects and power cords with a revolutionary new screen of unprecedented performance, never has the company produced a cable of such complexity or demanding such manufacturing precision. But then never has a cable delivered the performance of Odin! Breathtakingly expensive its musical majesty is more than equal to the challenge represented by the stellar asking price. Never before have we heard what our electronics can do if given the chance. Never before have we realized just how important cables are to audio and video performance. Never before has a company dedicated so much effort and research to unlocking the secrets of cable performance – and with a proven history of trickling down its unique technologies, that applies whatever price point you are looking at. Nordost Corporation is dedicated to the application of technology to the pursuit of audio excellence. Nordost really is making the connection
