Nordost Valhalla appreciation thread  

post #1 of 272
Thread Starter 
Ever since I was born nothing was acceptable to me so I didn't want to buy anything. But then I found something to spend all of my life savings on: Nordost Valhalla cables.

Valhalla power cord is acceptable! It has an open window to the music that no other cable I tried has. It sounds like real life, and that isn't an overstatement!
It isn't perfect but it can be modded past the limit of human hearing, it's great. Anything better isn't needed!

I don't hear anything in front of music even when I try, I keep wondering should there be something there? But then I change cable and there it is! Horrible veil and haze in front . Then I put back Valhalla and window is open again, how can it sound better than this? I don't hear anything wrong! Should there be something wrong? I don't hear it even with the most critical state of mind!

With 128 kbps mp3 the window is open, with WAV it is open. All I hear is the source. Even crappy recordings sound good with Valhalla cable. I am very sensitive to muddiness, I can't hear it anymore! Where is muddiness?

Real life

I accidentally paused the music and it freaked me out. I was listening to my audio system the whole time, I didn't realize!
Any other Valhalla owners ever got that?

Sure Patrick, I hear it too...

Black as midnight
Black as pitch
Blacker than the fowlest witch.

SEE...Ok buddy... a couple deep breathes and a squeeze of the stress ball and things are going to be all right.



The troll is starved! C'mon people, for the love of humanity, don't you realize you have to feed it before it takes one of the village children.

Hmm, ok. I think we're the trolls here, guys. He's just in a small minority. Let's stay off this thread if we don't appreciate Valhalla.

Patrick is not a troll. People should stop calling him that. Being eccentric is not the same thing as being a troll. He really does own the Valhallas, he really did cut them up and rewire nearly everything with them, he really does own Brilliant Pebbles.

Perhaps this is a lead-in to his new Nordost Valhalla power cord loaner program

Or a plug for all the cables he has for sale....

I have to give patrick at least some credit:

I also have some nordost cables of the reference series and the cables did more for my system then any other cable did thus far!

If you can't afford these cables, it doesn't mean this cables aren't good or better then others!

A porche 911 carera is better then a mid class car, yet the differences in cables and especially prices for good cables are not accepted.

Nobody however questions the need for a carera 911 to go from a to b!

I heard cables trought the whole range and can concur that the reference series of cables sounds best. period.

A smart man would buy these wonderful cables second hand for 1/3 of the price.

One can easily make the argument that the benefits of a Porsche 911 Carrera over a "mid-class" car is easily quantifiable and measurable (eg. better acceleration times, shorter braking distances, better roadholding, etc.). With audio cables, the audible differences are extremely subjective. How can one measure "better soundstage," "darker background," etc?
