Resonance Control—this is the defining element in Nordost’s Sort System. Resonance is an often overlooked, but defining factor in high quality sound reproduction. Nordost’s Sort System allows components to resonate at their natural frequency, without the burden of extraneous, damaging vibrations and the constraint of damping materials.
It is no industry secret that vibration degrades the performance of individual components and sound systems drastically. One way to try to minimize this negative effect is through the use of isolation devices (separating the component from outside forces that would harm sound integrity). However, Nordost takes a different approach to solving this problem. We believe that the most harmful mechanical energy doesn’t enter the equipment from the outside; it’s generated internally by the audio circuits and power supplies in components, as well as the drivers and crossovers in loudspeakers. Nordost’s Sort Kone and Sort Füt are the ideal solution for these vibration problems, offering an outlet for innate vibrations, while simultaneously protecting loudspeakers, audio racks and components from external factors.
The Sort Füt is a mechanically tuned resonance control device. It is purpose-built to enhance the performance of your hi-fi system and improve upon the standard spikes and stabilizers that are provided with loudspeakers and racks.
Energy is an unavoidable byproduct whenever components are in use, creating vibrations which can greatly affect the sound produced. The Sort Füt’s proprietary four-part construction eliminates these unwanted vibrations by providing a direct ground path, allowing extraneous energy to escape from electronics. The result: a reduction in intermodulation distortion, a proliferation of musical information, and an increase of tonal and textural details that will allow your system to achieve the dynamic range it is capable of.
