Mytek Digital MQA-Ready Brooklyn DAC

 

  Mytek Digital's affordable new hometown-namesake Digital-to-Analog converter, linestage, and headphone amplifier, the Brooklyn ($1,995), is now shipping. In terms of formats and functionality (as well as sound quality in its price tier), Mytek's Brooklyn leads the field. The Brooklyn Dodgers of old would be proud! "The Brooklyn DAC is one of the world's first stand-alone, high-performance DAC with MQA technology," says Michał Jurewicz, Founder and President of Mytek Digital. "It's a new design from the ground up, with a brand new 32bit/384k USB Class2, driverless on Mac and all Linux streamers, and offers superior sound thanks to the new generation Sabre chipset. It's ready for upcoming hi-res MQA streaming (up to 384kHz), and it plays all digital formats including DSD256, with a theoretical dynamic range of 130dB. The Brooklyn also offers high-quality analog input stages (both line-level and MM/MC phono), and balanced headphone outputs."

Prime among the Brooklyn's future-proof features is hardware-based decoding for MQA (Master Quality Authenticated). MQA's "killer appeal" is its ability to deliver studio quality, "Master Quality Assured" streaming with no need to increase bandwidth beyond what is needed for CD-Quality streaming. Says MQA creator Bob Stuart, "You can take an MQA-encoded file, play it anywhere, and it will sound better than CD." MQA files are backwards compatible; they can be played back without decoding, and the result is better than CD-Quality. However, when properly decoded, MQA files deliver the sound of the original master recording that the artist approved in the studio. The Brooklyn has sprinted to the head of the high-resolution DAC/HPA pack by being one of the first standalone DACs (along with Meridian's) with hardware-based MQA decoding.

Were MQA not enough, Mytek's Brooklyn also offers: 
Digital Inputs: AES/EBU, S/PDIF x 2, USB2 Class 2 (32 bit integer, no driver for Mac nor Linux Streamers) , and Toslink/ADAT; also SDIF3 DSD, up to DSD256, on 2x S/PDIF. 

Built-in audiophile-quality analog preamplifier with stereo analog RCA inputs selectable among Line Level, Moving Magnet, or Moving Coil phono. 

Stereo analog outputs on RCA and XLR jacks (simultaneous). 

Word Clock (In and Out) on BNC jacks. 

Mytek's proprietary Femtoclock Generator minimizes internal jitter, to below 1 picosecond. 

Dual-mono reference-quality headphone playback, with high-current amplifier (500mA, 6 Watts) designed for hard-to-drive headphones. Optional adapter (2 x 0.25-inch phone plugs to 4-pin XLR) enables balanced headphone operation.

Volume control is selectable, either by an analog attenuator with separate settings for headphone and main outputs, or by a 32-bit based digital attenuator with 1dB steps.

The Brooklyn's jewelry-quality, artistically sculpted casework is available in Matte Silver or Black. 
With headphone and line-level outs, MQA decoding and vinyl playback, the Brooklyn is ready to serve as the heart of a thoroughly modern hi-fi that embraces the future while celebrating the past. The Brooklyn comes with a worldwide power supply and infrared remote control. The Brooklyn is universal-remote-control capable, and can accept external 12V DC power or battery. The Brooklyn's warranty is two years.

Michal Jurewicz personally hand-picked J. B. Stanton Communications to be the company's Marketing Agency. Bryan Stanton, Founder and President of the 39-year-old Agency, said "It is exciting to be representing Mytek Digital to the consumer market, as they have a tremendous background in designing and building ADDA products for the Pro Recording industry since 1992. Michael has worked in The Hit Factory and Skyline Studios, and also worked on numerous recording projects with world famous artists, Chesky recording sessions, as well as many other recording studios. In addition, Mytek has done OEM and consulting work for high quality digital music formats, such as SACD, for many world famous consumer brand names such as Sony. In 2003 Sony also commissioned Mytek to develop a studio DSD mastering recorder. The Mytek Digital brand name may be relatively new to the consumer market, but very well-respected in the Pro side."

Mytek Digital will be at the CES 2016 Venetian Suite 30-335 with MQA.
