Nord Acoustics Products
« on: August 15, 2019, 09:25 »
Hi all,

I guess no one is using Nord products yet. So I've decided to create this & we can share information on this.

I've purchased the 8ch amp with the configuration as shown. My current power amp I'm using is Emotiva Gen 2 XPA 5. So coming from an Class A/B to Class D amp.



I will do some snap shots once the amp has arrived. Internal & external of it. As of now this are from their website.











If you all heard about Apollon brand as much. It's has almost the same components on this. The difference the caught my eyes on physical are the Rev Board, cable management & upgraded components (speaker terminals). I believe its using their own Rev Board brand(Rev C & D on Nord)

I've listened to bros (NGSK & Ronildoq) with the Apollon products. It sounded very nice & acoustically musical or probably I could say Marantz power amp but with steroid.

Anw Ovation United is the official dealer for Nord Acoustics. We will be opening a one time MO for this products. For anyone who is keen to get this. I would highly suggest to wait & let us bring some good news to you. We will be doing this MO strictly for Xtremeplace. (So keep your eyes on the MO thread in late September )

Congrats win and dj for securing dealership on this Nord and providing local sales

One of the reasons I’m selling the emotiva xpa-1 monoblocks, is to upgrade to the Apollon hypex based monoblocks with sparkos or sonic imagery OP amps. Good stuff indeed. I’m sure NORD is solid stuff, they look identical although I haven’t had the chance to listen to it, but with the tech advancement, it’s very clear these units have an edge, impressive SNR numbers

We did a comparison few months ago, Apollon monoblocks hypex Ncore nc500 SLM800  vs emotiva monoblocks Class AB. The quality and class between the two was highly evident, almost instantaneously all 4 of us could tell the difference , clarity was very good, highs extended and very good bass, lotsa weight and authority coming from a class D amp. The stage felt wider, all of us loved it.

The good about this is the price! Again at that price point, it was a no brainer for the monoblocks.I’m still sitting with the emotiva as I haven’t sold it. I wouldn’t hesitate to get it Once the emo is sold

This NORD is definitely worth checking out , that’s my honest opinion

Enjoy the good sound !

Hi matty,

We are having talks with Nord boss (Colin). We are trying to come out with something. Nevertheless once my 8ch amp delivered to me. I will definitely do some demo for you guys in Xtremeplace before I start doing up the MO.

The Monoblock Amps are totally different level from the 8ch power amplifier.

I believe so. We tested against parasound and the ati525, clear winner by the Apollon amplifier using these hypex modules. The ati525 also uses hypex ncore502

I believe we should see instant discount , looking at how pound sterling is depreciating in value



It’s like 5% off it’s value ! Maybe not a bad idea. But as mentioned, We haven’t heard the NORD, so can’t comment on that one

I agree with this.

The hypex and ncores will be the same. The difference in Apollon vs Nord will be their revision boards. Of course the price difference as well.

There is an instant feel, depth, wideness in sound that's for sure. Listening to pure direct without the EQs is a totally different experience.
