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. It’s not a huge improvement, but noticeable, as Brooklyn DAC is still excellent sounding and best value in the price category when compared to competition.
Brooklyn DAC+ is now in stock and shipping. Brooklyn DAC remaining stock is being sold as well and available while supplies last.

Brooklyn AMP+ retains the same type of sound with dynamic and precise transients and even and extended frequency response, but with way less low level distortion and cleaner natural, analog like character with deeper, larger soundstage.
Brooklyn AMP + features new faster transistors, cutting the so called «switching dead time” to low nanoseconds and faster and higher, 650kHz carrier clock. They both contribute to greatly improved low level detail and lower distortion. In addition the output filter frequency has been increased two fold for lighter highs and to better accommodate difficult loads.
Brooklyn AMP+ is another brand new, amazing sounding product from Mytek, launched at 2017 Munich HiFi Show. Mytek golden ear expertise was used to design world’s most likely best sounding Class D amplifier. Mytek engineers with the lead designer, Michal Jurewicz, have demonstrated that a carefully executed Class D can sounds like triode, with beautiful midrange and depth while maintaining deep bass and fast transient and detail. Mytek extensive expertise with DSD, technology similar to digital amplifiers was used in this project. This architecture allows for packing a lot of power (300W/ch) into small 1/2 rack chassis, small and light enough to be carried around in a briefcase. Unlike other established products on this site, Brooklyn AMP is subject to 30 day money back guarantee which will end when the first AMP reviews are published this Fall.
