Mytek Brooklyn DAC+


High-end DAC/Preamp/Headphone Amplifier with MQA Decoding

 

The Mytek Brooklyn DAC + is our favorite high-end DAC/preamp/headphone amplifier that features an impressive set of features and specifications. It also features MQA rendering and decoding making it one of the most affordable audiophile grade DAC/preamp/headphone amplifiers with this ability. In addition to providing some of the best digital capability on the market today it also has a phono analog preamp built in making it a virtual Swiss Army knife and the centerpiece of a great audio system. 

The sound is studio grade and that should come as no surprise given that Mytek also makes a line of recording studio converters and DACs used to make the very music we enjoy!  

 


 

Features

Brooklyn DAC+ features include:

  • Sabre 9028 Pro chipset
  • Higher grade, more transparent and less noisy analog attenuator circuit
  • Improved analog input performance
  • Improved Phono Stage transparency
  • Improved Headphone Amp sound (more detail, more definition)
  • Dual mono analog path

 

The Brooklyn DAC + has the same features as Brooklyn DAC but with an improved sound. It’s not a huge improvement, but noticeable, as the Brooklyn DAC is still considered excellent sounding and one of the best values in this price category when compared to the competition.
