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, but it has improved sound quality. It’s not a huge improvement, but noticeable, as Brooklyn DAC+ is a "best value" in the price category when compared to dac competitors.
