Despite Mytek producing DACs for the professional world - which are precisely the same DACs they produce for domestic music lovers, the Booklyn Bridge has been designed specifically for the hi-fi world, adding useful features to its wide ranging abilities, and adding to its already substantial value for money.

The Brooklyn Bridge is a high grade DAC, a high grade headphone amplifier, and a high grade pre-amplifier, which will decode standard and hi-res sound formats including DSD and MQA, and is also Roon compatible.

Mytek's Brooklyn Bridge is a flexible little box. It's main purpose is a high grade digital to analogue convertor. This uses the Sabre ESS 9028 PRO chipset, capable of decoding most digital formats including the DSD sound format as well as fully infolding MQA files to its original sampling rate - allowing you to enjoy hi-res music in its native form.

It is also a high grade headphone amplifier. Using a high current amplifier with 6 watts of power on tap, it is capable of driving literally any headphone you care to use. Dual headphone outputs allow two listeners so you can share the awesomeness!

Having analogue outputs (fixed or variable) means that not only can the Brooklyn Bridge act as a standalone DAC or headphone amp in an existing system, but it can also act as a pre-amplifier in a pre/power based hifi system, or for a pair of active loudspeakers.

Standard mains connection or facility to add the optional linear power supply.

WiFi streaming supports all formats up to 24/192kHz / DSD64 / MQA

Two coaxial digital inputs support formats up to 24/384kHz / DSD128

A Type A USB supports formats up to 32/384kHz / DSD256

A Type B USB input supports data streams up to 384kHz

An ethernet connection supports formats up to 24/192kHz / DSD64 / MQA

An optical input allows a digital source to be connected, supporting up to 24/176.4kHz / DSD64

Standard unbalanced inputs allow connection of an analogue source, such as a turntable.

Standard unbalanced outputs allow connection to any power amplifier or integrated amplifier.

Balanced XLR outputs provide a low noise connection to suitably equipped power amplifiers and integrated amplifiers, allowing longer runs of connecting cable without the loss of normal unbalanced interconnects - this allows your main system to be located anywhere in the room, while power amplification can be located close to the loudspeakers in order to use very short loudspeaker cable runs.

Whilst the Brooklyn Mytek is identical in performance to the Brooklyn + DAC, the addition of an ethernet connection allows music streaming, opening up its appeal to those whose music listening revolves around streaming services or digitally stored music. The USB port allows the direct connection of an external hard drive in order to stream music.

The Mytek Brooklyn Bridge is also Roon compatible with the addition of a Roon core product such as an Innuos music server. Innuos music servers can also store and send MQA files, which the Brooklyn Bridge can fully unpack and present in its native form - such an MQA combination really showcases MQA's capabilities.

A Mytek/Innuos Roon setup will bring together all of your stored music, as well as every single album and track available via streaming services such as TIDAL and present them to you as a single catalogue, making searching music easy, without having to switch between different apps.

The display has two different settings. It can either be set to show basic information such as volume level on one side - both in the form of a circular representation as well as decibel level - and information about the track being played - bit depth and sampling frequency.

The more informative display shows the input and sound format one one side, along with a real time numerical signal level, with peak levels - and the other side the level information in the form of a level meter, along with sampling rate and numerical volume setting
