Mytek Digital Manhattan DAC
Sold Out & Discontinued
The Manhattan DAC Headphone Preamplifier is the first product designed exclusively for home playback environments.
Hear your music as clear as the mastering engineer heard in the studio. MyTek worked closely with the world's leading industrial designer to create a modern, work of sound art and its their finest achievement to date.
Included with purchase:
- power cord
- usb cable
- firewire cable
- set of spike legs
- set of rubber legs
Working with world-class industrial designers a unique form emerged. Beautiful yet practical for heat dissipation and electrical dampening
The inner steel chassis covered in our custom milled aluminum enclosure helps to reject external electrical interference and lowering noise.
Elevated & Isolated
The 18lbs (8kg) mass dampens vibrations while isolation spikes diminish mechanical vibration providing a stable, artifact-free listening experience.
Femto Clock Technology
Mytek's new Femto Clock that's incorporated into our CX797 Clocking architecture pushes jitter and the noise floor below measurable levels.
Highest Resolution Support
Modern high resolution audio formats support for PCM 32 bit 384 khz DXD to Quad DSD256 11.2 mhz.
Discrete Analog & Digital Power Supplies
Two separate isolated power supplies for the analog and digital stages that lower noise and crosstalk while increasing power and consistency.
