Liberty DAC/Brooklyn AMP - English

Steve Guttenberg Audiophiliac

"This is not one of those hi-fi sources to snuggle up to, in front of an open fire and a bottle of Port. I'd liken it more to a strong lager with a twist of line - its crisp, dry, refreshing sort of listen with lots of things to tingle the taste buds."

"Mytek sent us their new Liberty, a DAC that that omits some of the Brooklyn's features for a substantial reduction in price. "

"Until very recently there were essentially three different D‑A converters (DACs) in Mytek’s range, spanning a very wide price bracket."

"If you have more than a passing acquaintance with digital products, you've probably heard of Mytek, who opened their doors in 1991."

"Now Mytek designer Michal Jurewicz presents a scaled-down version of it. Again named after an iconic part of his hometown of New York City, it is the Liberty DAC; yes, after that statue."

"Initial impressions using headphones!. The Mytek is very good imo. Slight tonal differences between the two. It doesn't fall flat trying to run HD600 headphones. Right there is a probably the most important thing I can say about it!"

"The Mytek Liberty DAC and Headphone Amplifier surprises by providing distinctly smooth sound while remaining clean and dynamic."

"The small label above the blue dot on the front panel of the new Liberty DAC by MyTek sums up a lot about the company’s direction in terms of compatibility."

"What price would you pay to be free from digital-file type constraint? $2,000? $5,000? $10,000? How about $995 USD?

"Take the Mytek Brooklyn (and not the Plus). Shrink the box volume by a factor of three to remove the colour LED display and dancing signal level meters but..."

"Mytek had their new $995 Liberty DAC, which is a Brooklyn DAC minus some parts including the front panel display, but retains the stuff that makes a Brooklyn sound like a Brooklyn."

"Liberty DAC using USB 2 in WASAPI push mode.
Comparing directly with the Basx A-100 and DC-1 RCA out combo with HD600 headphones run via BNC. A-100 has jumpers engaged bypassing the resistors to allow direct drive mode."
