Mytek Liberty DAC
The Mytek Liberty DAC is the newest general purpose PCM, MQA, DSD, USB2 DAC designed for high-quality music playback and monitoring of all digital audio formats including all high-resolution formats.
Mytek Liberty DAC is equipped with external 12VDC power supply input. There is some sound quality improvement (particularly deeper base and better soundstage) when a large external power supply is used. To have an effect the power supply has to be substantially (5-10 times) larger than the 30W internal power supply.
The Liberty DAC features several digital inputs, digital volume control and unbalanced as well as balanced audio outputs and a high performance headphone amplifier. Designed as a little brother of Brooklyn DAC, Liberty DAC provides robust performance in small portable 1/3 rack package.
