Mytek has now released the Manhattan DAC Headphone Preamplifier. This is the first product exclusively designed for home playback environments. Working closely with the world’s leading industrial designer, a modern beautiful component was created. The Manhattan DAC is Mytek’s finest achievement.
We listen, from the sound of our circuitry and parts all the way to our customer’s voices. Manhattan lets you hear the very same studio quality the mastering engineer has heard in their studio. We’re proud to have created a new reference level design
with a look and feel that’s only surpassed by it’s sound.
