International Audio Open Week – MOON, Nordost, Audiovector

Here in the UK we are lucky to be spoilt for choice when it comes to excellent home-grown audio manufacturers; it’s easy to forget that there are many exceptional companies producing exceptional hi-fi outwith these shores. To remind ourselves (and you!), we are showcasing and celebrating three of those – MOON by Simaudio, Nordost and Audiovector – in our International Audio Open Week, Wednesday 24th – Saturday 27th August.

Every listening space at Loud & Clear will be set up to demonstrate different levels of systems from these three fantastic manufacturers, from one-box streaming through to this ultimate MOON-Nordost-Audiovector flagship system that will feature at this year’s UK Hi-Fi Show Live at Ascot Racecourse in September:

~ MOON 780D v2 reference streaming DAC
~ MOON 740P preamplifier
~ MOON 820S power supply
~ MOON 860A v2 dual-mono power amplifiers x 2
~ Audiovector R8 Arreté floorstanding loudspeaker
~ Full Nordost Valhalla V2 cabling loom


This is a rare opportunity to listen to multiple MOON/Nordost/Audiovector systems, carefully put together to extract the very best audio from each, so come on in and see how this international audio feast compares to your own system!

In addition, we will have a daily talk from John Carroll, MD of Renaissance, the UK distributor of these international brands, taking one brand a day to focus on:

~ Wednesday 24th – Nordost
~ Thursday 25th – Audiovector
~ Friday 26th – MOON by Simaudio

but of course John is willing to chat at length on any and all every day 😂.

You’ll have the chance to hear first-hand about the ethos and capabilities of all three companies from John, plus the opportunity of Q&A sessions with him, as well as of course lots of listening!
