    Dartzeel NHB-18NS & NHB 108 Model 2 review

    Thanks for the input Mike! Well we mostly play classical, jazz, 60-70 pop/rock more or less anything but mostly classical/jazz. We play classic preferable at concert level in an about 290 sq ft room. The amount watts may not be the most important due to the sensitive character of the Strads as l...

    Dartzeel NHB-18NS & NHB 108 Model 2 review

    I have my eyes on this set of pre and stereo power but I wonder if the power amp is up to the task to deal with the few sub 3 ohm swings and tricky phase behavior of my Stradivari? Any input appreciated! Mike

    Hi Evan, If you can find, start with 3 and test under a pre amp, DAC etc to see how it work before biting further bullets… Under my Strads the gave an effect you can't be without. I also used them under my GH org which really great effect (and yes GH can play base with a little help). Write to...

    Evan, I see I missed answering you full question and kept on rambling about my impressions. The spikeshoe is not from Ansuz but from Solidtech and my add on to focus the energy from the Strad's spikes in to the Darkz. When it comes where to buy Darkz I do not know but in the US my view is that...

    Hi Evan, Sorry for the confusion as the former top of the line was DTC out of 4 levels. The DTC has now been replaced by another top of the line T2S (I think they have labelled this one wrong in the headline on the homepage) a version that is about double price of DTC but not as good to my ears...

    Hi, I would never think that the GH could be hot in the top but everything is possible of course and that is the charm with this hobby. Mike

    Hi, Strange, as I thought GH org benefitted more from removing the grilles than Strads even if mandatory for both. Still have the GH org (last year production) and will never let them go. Mike

    Hi, Now you discovered the grill effect, great! My choice of the Ansuz Darkz was easy, they are so much better than Stillpoints but we all pray to different 'religions'. So try please with both brands or other of same type and see what works for you but for sure there are enhancements to be...

    Hi, There is a huge difference in SQ to the better without the speaker grilles! Never use mine, try if you not yet did. Another great optimization is to put Ansuz Darkz or Stillpoints under the spiked feet, makes a welcome difference with tighter base and more open mids. I run mine with Ansuz...
