To many, Dartzeel is the only house that strikes the delicate balance between engineering precision and musical correctness. Usually, when the presentation of sound is overtly transparent, ear-fatigue develops (since listeners tend to lose focus). Such is not the case with Dartzeel in spite of the ultra high resolution nor its indefatigable transient capabilities. Instead, the listener starts tapping feet naturally to follow the tempo, which is uncommon with many brands, to be so easily drawn into the recording venue. This is not a brand that brings the musicians to your room. Rather it is a brand that, in a sense, teleports anyone to the recording venue. It is this correct rendition of melody and tempo that yields musicality under the baton of the Dartzeel marque. With Dartzeel, there is neither inflation of mid range warmth nor protrusion of upper bass attack to create a ‘sensational’ sound. The delineation of massed strings in any symphonic recording is riveting. The innocence of a child's voice is not only angelically rendered, but one is able to comprehend the different tonality of voices amongst the children in that choir. For electronic and rock music fans, the Dartzeel simply shocks. With all its finesse, it goes against the misnomer that Dartzeel is intended for western classical (such as most reviewers have commented over the decades). We can vouch that we have never experienced Queens’ “Bohemian Rhapsody” nor Pink Floyd’s “Money” in an “all-hell-breaking-loose” situation, such as when Dartzeel is partnered with the Cessaro brand of horn speakers!
