MyTek Brooklyn DAC+ Headphone Amp Preamplifier
In Stock & Ready to Ship!
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.
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.
Brooklyn DAC+ was launched at RMAF 2017 in October 2017 and is now shipping. It replaces Brooklyn DAC which has now been discontinued.
Brooklyn DAC+ features the following improvements as compared to Brooklyn DAC:
- Sabre 9028 Pro chipset ( 9018 in older model)
- 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
In other words, Brooklyn DAC+ has the same features as Brooklyn DAC but improved the sound. It’s not a huge improvement, but noticeable, as Brooklyn DAC is still excellent sounding and best value in the price category when compared to the competition.
