Founded in 1991, Nordost Cables are specialist manufacturers of high technology conductor solutions for use in audio and medical fields. The high precision conductor technology was originally developed for the aerospace industry in conjuction with NASA experts and the Space Shuttle Program. This experience in the mission critical fields of space flight and surgery have put Nordost in good stead for continued research and development and offer an unbelievable degree of manufacturing accuracy and consistency.
Their first commercial audio product was launched in 1992 called Flatline Gold. This was a revolutionary flat profile speaker cable that had tough extruded FEP insulation making it an cable for use under carpets or for in-wall installation. Its astounding sonic performance soon established the flat array of solid-core conductors as something very special indeed. After Nordost further developed the technology and concept they quickly established a wide range of products across different price points, products whose performance challenged existing notions of the price/performance equation. Nordost also adopted a unique approach to sales, openly demonstrating the performance of their products against the competition. This confidence was well placed and the strategy proved a sure-fire winner, the legendary Nordost cable demos remaining high on the must-hear list for audiophiles attending hi-fi shows around the world.
