We have known about darTZeel electronics for more than a decade, we often heard them in shows or at customers’ place and we always thought Hervé Deletraz’s electronics would be a very very fine addition to our lines of products. During this hot summer we had the opportunity to meet Hervé in our Parisian showroom – certainly the best way to understand better who we all were and how we could team up together. Our common focus on analog playback gave us a solid ground to start a serious relationship and it became obvious that we would have great pleasure ((c) darTZeel ;)) to play these instruments to all of you.
Our showroom is now equipped with the following darTZeel electronics :
- NHB-18NS preamplifier with two MC phono input
- NHB-108 Model Two stereo power amplifier
- LHC-208 integrated amp with DAC and streamer
- CTH-8550 mk2 integrated amp
Hervé Deletraz was also eager to meet his customers and agreed to join us for both a dinner on Thusday 17th of October and an open Saturday day on the 19th of October. Both events will be a perfect opportunity to listen and enjoy darTZeel electronics as well as their designer. Two listening spots will be available :
- NHB-18NS & NHB-108 Model Two combination on Thrax Basus and Lyra speakers
- LHC-208 or CTH-8550 mk2 integrated amps in near field listening experience with Thrax Lyra speakers
As usual we will be playing various analog sources including… darTZeel NHB-18NS phonostages tailored specially to match a very special cartridge : the Jan Allaerts MC2 Finish Gold, a 32 ohms cartridge with 0.2mV/5cm of output that needs a perfectly tuned phonostage due to high resistive loading combine with low output. As per recommendation of Jan Allaerts : the resistive loading of the NHB-18NS phonostage will respect the 845 ohms resistive loaded for optimal loading and this will be a very unique opportunity for all of you to listen to this very rare cartridge with the perfect phonostage match.
We will also be playing digital files with darTZeel LHC-208 DAC and streamer as well as the brand new Thrax Maximinus mk2 DAC and streamer.
Do not hesitate to come with your records !
As usual, our home chef, Frédéric, will cook us a meal and choose the matching Swiss white and red wines with it. The menu of the evening will be as follow :
- Swiss wines and Amuses Bouches (fun in the mouth ?)
- Penny Bun Pie
- Milanese Osso Bucco
- (Swiss) Cheese
- Seasonal Apple Pie
- Coffee, tea
