Mytek Brooklyn DAC+ / Preamp / Phonostage / Headphone Amp

 

I cannot think of another device as capable as this one, with a complete set of functions including a headphone amplifier, pre-amp and configurable phono stage on top of an already good DAC.
— PANAGIOTIS KARAVITIS, PART-TIME AUDIOPHILE, MARCH 2018

The new DAC+ is in stock today in both silver and black!

Designed in New York. The only reasonably priced high-end DAC with MQA hardware decoder needed to hear the full original resolution of Tidal Masters. Available in silver or black. And now, Stereophile Class A Rated!

Brooklyn DAC+ is primarily a reference USB2 DAC, but also line and phono analog preamplifier and a reference headphone amplifier. It integrates digital and vinyl hi-res playback for reference listening on headphones and speakers. All integrated functions are of the premium grade. Both 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 sound.
