Hi! Was DX-5 connected to the system via the balanced output? If that's the case, what's the XLR input polarity of DartZeel? I could not find this information on DartZeel's website. Thanks.

The preamp's balanced input is non-inverting with pin 2 of the XLR wired hot: see http://www.stereophile.com/content/dartzeel-nhb-18ns-preamplifier-measurements .
