darTZeel NHB-458 monoblock
Made in Geneva, Switzerland, the 450W (530W at actual clipping) NHB-458 measures 18″ H by 11″ W by 20″ D, weighs 154 lbs, and has a deep-gold, brushed front panel and retro-industrial, red-anodized case. Tinted glass side panels allow magnetic fields to escape the chassis and reveal the amp’s enormous cylindrical transformer. The large rear-panel heatsink has a cutout for connections that include RCA and XLR inputs, as well as a Zeel BNC 50 ohm input, for use with darTZeel’s NHB-18NS preamplifier and Playback Designs’ SACD player and DAC. It combined outstanding speed, precise high-frequency transients, and unlimited dynamic range with powerful bass and unsurpassed transparency, said MF. “The darTZeel NHB-458 is easily the finest power amplifier I have ever heard in my listening room,” he concluded. At a price!
