The MyTek Manhattan II is a reference USB / Network DAC / Preamplifier.

MQA Decoder with 384k PCM and DSD256, phono and line analog preamplifier and a reference headphone amplifier.

Integrates digital streaming and vinyl analog playback for reference listening on headphones and speakers.

The Manhattan DAC II design uses the same chassis, same power supply, and front panel circuits as the original Manhattan. It uses a completely new, redesigned mainboard. This offers a substantial sound quality upgrade, significantly better detail and resolution, and state of the art transparent analog preamplifier performance.

Features

Manhattan II uses the world's highest performance 130dB Sabre 9038 DAC chipset. With the optional Streamer network card and your iPad or tablet, full streaming off Tidal, Qobuz, or your favorite service is only a touch away. Manhattan II is also Roon Ready for full home audio integration.

Manhattan II Inputs

Audio Recording Function

All digital inputs can be routed into a computer via USB2. This allows connection of external digital sources such as CD Players and digitizing ADCs.

Inputs and Outputs

Headphone output: Reference High Current, High Transient Headphone Amp, 500mA, 6 Watts, 0 Ohm out impedance.

Analog inputs are routed through minimal path (no caps) state of the art analog attenuator directly to analog and headphone outputs.

Optional Cards

The optional Precision Phono Analog Preamp Card is a High End M/M, M/C Phono Preamplifier with custom nickel core step-up transformers, and a relay that is switchable and tunable. Input impedances, transformer ratios, RIAA curves and choice of gain can be changed within the menu or using the remote via relay switches. Optional card is sold separately and is user installable.

The optional Roon Ready Network Card turns the Manhattan into a network streamer with 24/192k and DSD64 maximum throughput. It is compatible with Roon, Airplay, DLNA/UPnP, Spotify Connect, iOS, and Android.

Have you compared the Manhattan II to the Berkeley Audio DAC Reference Series 2; if so what was your opinion?
Janet M on Aug 3, 2019
