Are NBS cables are sound better than Nordost ?

I want to upgrade my MIT Oracle V2.1 for Nordost Val. But a friend rec. to me the NBS Omega cable. How are these cables compare to each other? My system is: Wadia,Tenors 75wi and Kharma 1D.
Hello Dkhanhxuanl,

I just wanted to say you should try to listen for yourself to decide. I do not find the Valhalla interconnect or speaker cable to be lean at all. IMO it is the most neutral cabling I've heard. Good luck, I hope you find what you are looking for.

There is one important part where NBS makes a big fault. I worked for a company who also sold NBS. I did a lot of testing with many NBS cables. It makes instruments and voices bigger than they sould be. Listen to live music in a small room with just a few instruments. And yo know actually what I mean. People have to learn how big an instrument is when you listen to it. The right proportion of an instrument or voice is a very important part of listening to music as it would sound in real. And yes there are brands who are capable to let you hear the right proportions.
Hello Leon,
You are right, the big sound is what so many audiophiles crave and that is what most cable companies supply. This phenom is so entrenched that some audiophiles think that the big sound is actually more neutral or correct.
Leon: NBS doesn't make the sound bigger than the real size at all. They just show what the components do. You only have to figure out which series of cable you have to apply, dependent on the quality of your components. Many manufacturers let their components sound too full, just to camouflage their faults, for such you need lean sounding cables. But this way of compensation is not the way I want.
My experience is that I get better sound by using neutral components (getting closer to the music). And with that a portray of life size instruments/voices/space will come automatically. And NBS helps me a lot with that.
I also sold many Nordost cables and I also know exactly how to use and what the properties are. I was the first one who bought the Valhall loudspeakercable in my country. I also did a lot of testing with the the rest of the Valhalla cables in mu system. Now I also use Valhalla powercables for a part in my system. But When you use only Valhalla cables you will miss important parts in you system. The most important part what is missing, is individual focus. There are cables who cab do this so much better. But Valhalla is the only cable who can let you hear the highest resolution. Use a live recording and you know what other cables miss. I use a Purist Audio PC on mu power amp. It gives me more information in the lowest freq, yes a lot more than a Valhalla van. Also it gives more depth information and has a richer mid. So when you want to have the sound you are looking for, the only way is to use different properties of different brands. I wanted to have a sound what has a lot of depth info, high resolution, involvement in the mid freq, a very good individual focus, control and speed in the low freq, the right proportion of a voice and instrument. A Purist is capable of getting lower in the low freq. than other cables can. I wanted a system who has all these things toghether, and yes it is possible. And now I have a sound to die for. I am sucked in the music and I can touch the people who are playing in front of me. It feels if they are standing in my room. And that gives me a feeling of live music. Just by using different properties of different brands.
