WHAT TO EXPECT NORDOST QRT DEMONSTRATION

"If you’ve yet to explore Nordosts QRT products, now’s the time! QRT Power Products and Audio Enhancers are specifically designed to improve your audio system by alleviating the poor-quality AC and DC power on your sensitive electronics, providing everything form proper grounding to synchronizing the electromechanical resonances of your components. Like all Nordost products, QRT solutions are easy to demonstrate in any system and the performance improvements that they bring to your music are immediate and unmistakable. However, we recognize that for some people, sitting in on a demonstration can be intimidating. Often times, listeners appreciate knowing what to listen for when they sit down to audition a product." 

While it may be impossible to pinpoint the exact effect that each QRT product will have on your system, (due to the fact that each system is different based on the components that its comprised of, and how those components interact with each other) we still want you to have an idea of what to expect. To do that, we have listed some of the sonic effects that you can expect to hear when introducing each QRT product into your sound system! 

What to listen for when auditioning the … 


QBASE AC Distribution (QB8/QB6/QB4)

  • Develops the soundstage, imparting 3D quality to imaging
  • Tonal richness and depth in the music becomes more noticeable
  • A quieter background allows layers of resolution and details to come to the forefront of performance
  • Brings a sense of neutrality to the system, allowing the sonic signature of your components to shine

QKORE Ground Unit (QKORE1/QKORE3/QKORE6)

  • Strips noise from the system, imparting a blacker background, which allows you to appreciate details and nuances in the music
  • Improves pacing, timing coherence, and natural decays in the music
  • Extends the soundstage, presenting a livelier presentation with stronger image outlines
  • Improves the accuracies in both the timbral and bass region, opening up the entire dynamic range

QPOINT Resonance Synchronizer

  • Enhances the musical organization, focus, and coherence 
  • The two modes of operation emphasize slightly different aspects of the musical reproduction 
  • Introduces a controlled sense of dynamic freedom and force to the sound 
  • Allows the natural quality of the instruments to shine through, as well as vocal separation and three-dimensionality

QSOURCE Linear Power Supply 

  • Dramatically lowers the background noise 
  • Any device it powers will produce a much wider/deeper soundstage with more clarity, ambience and resolution
  • Music reproduction has more dynamic range and is more nuanced 

QVIBE AC Line Harmonizer (QV2) 

  • Increases aspects of depth, realism, and spacing in the music
  • Lowers the perceived background noise
  • Smooths sibilants in the playback

QKOIL AC Enhancer (QK1) 

  • Increases clarity of imaging, sharpness, depth, and focus 
  • Improves elements of speed and timing in the music 
  • Lowers the noise floor
