MyTek Brooklyn DAC+ Plus

In Stock

The Mytek Brooklyn DAC+ is primarily a reference USB DAC, but it is also a line and phono analog preamplifier with a reference Balanced headphone amplifier. It integrates digital and vinyl hi-res playback for reference listening on Headphones and via Preamp Outputs. Teamed up with the Brooklyn Amp will provide reference caliber sound for your speakers.

In other words, Brooklyn DAC+ has the same features as the original Brooklyn DAC with improved sound quality. It is not a huge improvement but it is noticeable as Brooklyn DAC+ is a "best value" in the price category when compared to DAC competitors.

All integrated functions are of premium grade. Both the phono preamplifier as well as a headphone amplifier are of the highest quality, they challenge dedicated units costing thousands of dollars.
