Product Description

Nordost Qkore 1 High End Parallel Grounding Solution is a brilliant parallel grounding device that enables you to create an artificial yet 'clean' base for your hi-fi system. This grounding solution yields impressively dramatic results, as it works to reduce the noise floor and enhance harmonic accuracy and musicality.

The Qkore1 is furnished with one “QBASE Ground” binding post to ground your distribution block. This Offers an effective ground on the primary side of the power supply. The model comes provided with a 2M Banana to Banana QKORE Wire.

It is recommended to use one QKORE1 in conjunction with one QKORE3. However, if your system includes monoblocks, or you are searching for an all-in-one grounding solution, Nordost advises using the QKORE6.

How It Works

Using the included banana to banana QKORE Wire, the QKORE1 is designed to be connected to your QBASE unit. You should insert the QKORE Wire into QKORE’s QBASE Ground binding post and the QBASE grounding post.

Innovative Design

In order to draw errant high-frequency noise and voltage-generated magnetic fields to an artificial earth point, leaving a clean reference behind, this model is crafted with a metal alloy and a passive electronic circuit. This special product blends Nordost’s patented Mono-Filament technology with bespoke, Low-Voltage Attractor Plates (LVAPs).

The system is passive and is protected in housing that is mechanically tuned and embellished with gold-plating and WBT binding posts which quickly connect each component to an artificial ground. Waste caused by electrical balance imperfections between ground and voltage is no longer added to other pollutants, thanks to a balanced and immaculate ground point.

The Qkore Wire

The QKORE Wire is a mechanically tuned cable that uses Nordost’s patented Micro MonoFilament technology,  alongside extruded FEP insulation, and is made with a 16 AWG, silver-plated OFC, solid core conductor.

This specialised construction offers 'the path of least resistance' to ground, for the errant high-frequency, low-voltage aspects that can disrupt the performance of your sound system. The QKORE Wire can be terminated with banana, spade, RCA, male-XLR, female-XLR, and BNC connectors. 

Dramatically Improved Sound

The QKORE grounding system is, quite simply, the most comprehensive grounding solution available today. It's results are instant and significant— the noise floor is reduced and harmonic accuracy and clarity are undeniably increased. The overall musical performance is demonstrably improved.
