Thread: DarTZeel 108 Ver. B - Power Cord Suggestion

  1. #1

    Question DarTZeel 108 Ver. B - Power Cord Suggestion

    Hi all,

    My 108 Ver. B shall be arrived soon in next few days. I am considering matching a power cord for it. My primary choice is :

    1) Shunyata Research - Alpha Analog
    2) Shunyata Research - Alpha Analog HC <-- this is too much?
    3) Siltech - Explorer 270P
    4) Kubala Sosna - emotion
    5) Synergistic Research - Atmosphere

    First three can be found in my local market, the others have to be ordered online

    My current set up is
    {ROON Library with Tidal} Macmini & Synology NAS {Local Music Library} -*Network*-->
    {music streamer} SoTM - SMS 200 --[Siltech - Model USB] -->
    {DAC} Esoteric D-07X (Powered by Siltech Classic SPX800 PC)--[Siltech - Paris RCA] -->
    {Pre-Amp} Gryphon LE (Powered by Shunyata Venom) --[audience OHNO RCA] -->
    {Power-Amp} DarTZeel NHB-108 Ver. B (Powered by ??) --[Nordost RED DAWN speaker cable]-->
    {Speakers} Franco Serblin Accordo

    Listening: JAZZ, classic pop, easy listening, chamber music, vocal (female), blue and sometimes Kids songs for my twins who are 3 :LOL:

    Any suggestions and advice which one you prefer?

    I haven't tried the others, but the Kubala was a very, very good match for the darTZeels. You might want to look at replacing that Nordost, as it considerably thins the sound of the amp.

    The KS did not work in my Dart system so it will depend on your speakers - I preferred WyWires.

    I use Stealth Audio Dream V10 "Power", works the best for me.

    If you can afford the HC it will likely be worth the additional spend.

    Hi all. As per my personal preference. I finally pick a Siltech Explorer 270P for the Amp. All of my DAC and preamp are using the Siltech SPX-800 pcs.
