Great DAC, with small weaknesses

DirkU, 20.03.2016
In the meantime, my impressions refer to the use in the home HiFi, and as comparison / reference here serve AudioQuest DragonFly 1.2, iFi iDSD micro, Oppo HA-1 in terms of DAC, belongs to the same and separately KHV SPL Phonitor mini Audeze LCD-3F, Sennheiser HD800s and Beyer T90, occasionally over the "large plant".
Before a DAC "big" ran on, is recorded over at least 1 week and exhausted over KH.

The new Mytek was long awaited, the DSD 192 I had already often heard, but offered to my previous setup to little more than that it would be useful for me, so I was glad, so shortly after the start of the new Mytek this here To be able to.

To the sound: very balanced and not quite as pointed as sometimes the DSD 192 of Mytek, good depth and width in the representation, the fine resolution superb.
Basically, the Quentchen drauf, what audibly I hoped for the previous here with me.

Operation, processing: Simply good, but whether the many features are not always easy by hand.
Basically, this is a device, in the proximity one should always be, if one would often switch inputs, settings etc., because the good and very informative display is not for "television", one recognizes with normal good light 3m nothing more secure, and although the super Apple remote control does their job, but the whole concept is intended for? S near field, it seems to me.

All's well that ends well...?

Unfortunately not quite, because at two important and a few rather smaller disturbing peace I have then but not to be able to and can not, at the price then not, so he went back with a heavy heart.

If this is not the case, then I will not be able to get a DAC, but I will not buy a DAC if it is actually the same A further and separate (best linearly regulated) power supply is necessary).
Second uninhibitive Aha effect: The USB section, so their input, seems to be mass-moderately not separated, all the rest. Is called, when playing via USB from the PC / Mac I had a lousy housing compound over ground (housing <-> Housing) over the USB signal mass, thus also partly violent interference. In the case of devices without a protective conductor (aka laptop, streamer, etc.) this can not happen, but humor does not matter, especially since my previous devices do not exhibit this behavior.
For not everyone of importance (and yes, I know you can jumps in the device, but I see it as an error), that the RCA sockets with me the same level as the XLR outputs, and Only a few devices like levels of well over 2V at the Chincheingängen.
Also no sunset, but for me modest, the two KH outputs, which although quite properly "steam" under the hood, but sound I find very far behind the quality of the analog outputs fall back. What do I use in this case even two separately buffered KH outputs (which even 180 ° phase-rotated signals supply and with appropriate wiring / cable a KH can be symmetrical drive), if they from the level the actually possible in / from the device so little?
Together with the remote controllability, which was not exactly suitable for me, there were too many smears.

The end ... even if I am after m Conclusion of the above mentioned larger hurdles and great drüberhinwegsehen with the smaller the good sound afterwards mourn, it should not be.

Anyone who runs a different set-up, or does not come into contact with the things I have observed, may well come to a completely different conclusion.

PS: latest firmware installed at the time, Spdif opt. And over RCA also austestet, with opt. Digital logically no mass problems, when playing via RCA the same "problem" as on / via USB, seems to me to be a little separated mass problem. And yes, I had everything phased out and over starvation. My "trick" in the feeding USB was 130 Ohm in the ground line, since housing masses were under 0.5 Ohm in the ground connection, not quite USB-compliant, but who knows the USB rain knows know ... ;-)

Incredible improvement of egne previous version 'Stereo192-DSD DAC

Resolution imaging, the soundstage's width and depth as well as its layout - in fact everything - has improved over the Mytek's previous version 'Stereo192-DSD DAC som legendary in its price range. The new Brooklyn DAC appearently now leads the DAC field in its own price range and kan også superior two other DACs nemlig up to mindst 800-1000 euros more expensive. So it shouldnt be a great bargain for what you pay for it.

I'm totally satisfied with the Brooklyn DAC SQ and will definitely keep it for a long time not only fordi of all I've allerede nämnde, men også fordi of all its features att acidic will keep it future proof.

Also, Thomann's service is excellent. By far one of the best erfaringer I've had with alanyl dealer.
