Stereo solid state amplifier

NHB-18NS

Instead of offering a preamplifier based on the same approach as that of our competitors, we at darTZeel chose to think differently, offering for the first time in the world what previously seemed impossible:  No contact or switches or relay of any kind for the selection of the sources. This revolutionary feature brings a new level of transparency. Instead of routing the signal through a...[more]

Stereo solid state phono preamplifier

NHB-458

With the final darTZeel NHB-458, it sets a new standard: after nine years of constant research and continuous development, this amplifier, not only it owns all the qualities of the NHB-108, already acclaimed by the whole audiophile world, but it goes further in revealing a very special machine in every respect. Some key features -The output is still higher than that already showed off the proto...[more]

Mono solid state amplifier

Q1

 For Magico, it marks the starting point of an even greater pursuit. As in most products, addressing problems with more precision allows us to carefully consider a broader range of demands. In the Q1, compromises of form factor, mass, power requirments, and versatility were not necessary due to eliminating inefficiencies in common problem solving design principles. The outcome is a compact...[more]

15.2

The amplification uses the highly acclaimed Hitachi Lateral Mosfets 2SK1058 & 2SJ162 complementary power transistors, in a configuration of two pairs per channel. The input section uses a cascode differential stage for the best performance. Both the pre-driver and the driver stages are based on High-Voltage Power Bipolar Transistors used in HF designs. The driver operates in pure class A. The c...[more]

Integrated solid state amplifier

C2A

One box is dedicated to the converter, output electronic and digital inputs, the second box contain a separate power supply with 7 transformers. This configuration provide an heavy protection from EMI/RFI radiation from the outside world and reduce the negative influence of mechanical vibration from the transformers. Each digital input use it own DIR for a lower level of jitter. A selectable ups...[more]

Mini II

Thanks in part to an all-new "Elliptical Symmetry Crossover" (ESXO); they are also easier to drive than their first incarnation. At the heart of the MINI's enclosure are 16 horizontal layers of extremely stiff, 1", laminated, 17-ply Baltic Birch plywood. The result is an enclosure that is three times stiffer than enclosures fabricated with the vertical MDF construction techniques typically found i...[more]

Q5
Award Winning Product

From the outside, the Q5's form is indicative of its function—pure and simple, rigid and unbiased. Although not significantly larger than our own V3, its total weight is nearly 400 lbs. The enclosure, machined entirely from aluminum and brass at our new facility, achieves a balance of mass and stiffness which had, up until now, been prohibited by the cost associated with such an undertaki...[more]

V2

The V2 embodies the spirit of the award-winning Mini II in our acclaimed V-series floor-standing enclosure design. Utilizing a unique 2.5-way configuration, it combines the coherence of a 2-way with the exceptional dynamic expression associated with our multi-way offerings. Containing two 7” Nano-Tec® drivers operating on separate circuits and mounted at different depths on a “ze...[more]

Dynamic loudspeakers

V3

V3 drivers are mounted from the back of the aluminum faceplate so as not to obstruct the curvature of the front plate and cause diffractions. As with all MAGICO models, drivers are mounted directly to metal; no hardware is used to directly attach the drivers or metal parts to the wooden parts of the enclosures. This ensures perfect and reliable driver-coupling for years to come. Making use of...[more]
