Mytech Digital has been building mastering grade converters for the New York City Recording Industry since 1992, the early years of digital.
Mytek converters were used in many major releases of the last two decades such as David Bowie , Mariah Carey, Eric Clapton, B-52's. Modonna, and many others. From 2005 Mytek has worked with Sony's New York SACD launch Campain helping to develop DSD tools for SACD production.
-Conversion: 32 bit, PCM up to 192k, 64xDSD, 128xDSD.
-Dynamic Range: 128dB (ESS Sabre chipset in 8 mono to 2 stereo config.) THD DAC: -110dB.
-Digital Audio Inputs and Outputs: Firewire 400/800 (up to 192k/DSD async), USB2.0 (up to 192k/DSD async), USB1.1 (up to 96k, sync, driverless).
-Digital Audio Inputs: SPDIF, AES/EBU, Toslink all up to 192k single wire. (64x and 128XDSD SDIF DSD interface in Mastering Version.)
-Clock: Internal Clock Generator (10ps jitter) Wordclock In and Out, or sync to incoming digital audio input with JET (tm) PLL. Time Domain Jitter Eliminator in the DAC module.
-Internal Async Hardware Upsampling - 16bit 44.1k etc. can be optionally upsampled prior to conversion to 192k/24bit with clock jitter eliminated.
-Transparent, 1dB stepped programmable analog attenuator, separate for main out and headphones. Alternate digital attenuator.
-Relay bypass of the attenuator for direct purist DAC out.
-A pair of unbalanced RCA analog inputs for preamp functionality (assignable to volume control) (In Preamp Version.)
-High current, High Slew Rate ultra low distortion 500mA hi-fi headphone amp.
-Worldwide (user selectable) linear power supply.
-Online downloadable firmware updates.
-Ability of converting standard digital audio inputs into computer FW/USB input.
-Two user assignable function switches (MUTE, MONO etc.)
-DSD ASIO drivers for Win, DoP "DSD over USB" coding for all other playback software (Mac, Win, FW, USB2.0, AES, SPDIF)
-Built in universal remote receiver
"Direct Stream Digital or DSD...Most of the buzz at RMAF 2011, was the Mytek's ability to play back DSD natively...that's only...half the story.
The Mytek Stereo192-DSD DAC shows the company's Professional Audio roots in its half-rack size, AES/EBU input, and Wordclock in/out. The "Preamp Version" replaces those BNC's with a pair of unbalanced RCA's so you can connect a line-level source in addition to your digital audio.", Michael Lavorgna, Audiostream, August 7, 2012
