New from Nordost is the QKOIL QK1. The new product is a load resonating coil (LRC) which Nordost QKOLIsay generates a passive electronic field that has a “beneficial sonic effect on the AC current”.

The QKOIL QK1 from Nordost uses LFR along with Nordost’s “patented Micro Mono-Filament technology” which they say in a loading application “prevents time delay and distortion of the transmitted signal, making the AC current that much closer to the desired distortionless condition”.

QKOIL QK1 is the entry level product and is housed in a “mechanically tuned carbon-fiber body”. It comes with either a US (NEMA) or Eu (Schuko) connector (though can be used with a AUS or UK adapter) and is said to be compatible with voltages from 110V to 240V.

Operation is a simple case of plugging into a spare socket.

  • Arguably the tonearm cable is one of the most critical and sensitive cables in any vinyl-sourced Hifi system. The delicate signals generated by pick-up cartridges in these systems demand purpose-built, low-capacitance cables, in order to protect from signal loss and image smearing. However, in order to get the most from a tonearm cable, proper attention must be paid not only to…
