    REVIEWED! Mytek’s Liberty II DAC

    I first looked at the original Mytek Liberty DAC in 2018 (review here). Six months later, I compared it to its bigger brother, the Brooklyn DAC. Both devices impressed. I bought the Liberty review unit and it’s still my go-to external DAC. Four years is a lifetime in digital audio. […]

    Mytek’s Empire-building plans laid bare

    In the absence of hi-fi shows, commentators like yours truly must turn to the virtual world to keep up with what’s coming down the pike. Three hours on Skype yesterday with CEO Michal Jurewicz pulled back the curtain on Mytek’s forthcoming statement piece: Empire — an über-high-end streaming DAC/pre platform […]

    Showdown! Mytek Brooklyn+ vs. Mytek Liberty

    Mytek’s Liberty DAC (£895, $995, €995) was reviewed by me (here) and put in a stellar performance, more than holding its own in the company of an Ayre AX-7e (£2,750) and Harbeth C7/2 speakers. The Liberty mates the ESS9018 chip of the original Brooklyn (review here) with the output stages […]

    Mytek teases Brooklyn Bridge streaming DAC

    On my office desk sits a most well-connected DAC — a book-sized slab of electronics with options for MQA, DSD, analogue or digital volume attenuation, Apple remote control hijack, single-ended or balanced outputs; on the rear panel for connection to an amplifier (like the Mytek Brooklyn Amp) and on the […]

    Mytek Liberty DAC review

    Half the size, half the functionality, half the price. Sort of – bear with me. Does the Mytek Liberty DAC (preview here) deliver half the sound quality of the Brooklyn DAC (review here) and Brooklyn+ DAC (review here) on which its design was based? Neither was on hand for comparison […]

Keep hold of its […]

    A plus from Poland: Mytek announce Brooklyn DAC+

    There are many reasons to dig Mytek’s Brooklyn DAC (US$1995): a full suite of digital inputs including USB support for 32bit/384kHz and DSD256; Apple remote-controllable volume (analogue and digital); a full colour display with dancing signal level meters; balanced and single-ended outputs; a single-ended input doubles as (a very decent) […]
