JaguarAudioDesign.com is an authorized retailer for all Mytek Digital products. Note: If you're in Seattle, come by Jaguar in Downtown Bellevue (we're located 2 blocks from I-405 at NE 4th St). We have both the Mytek DAC+ and the Mytek Manhattan II set up for clients in the Jaguar listening space, with Roon and Tidal MQA. Come have a listen and bring your headphones with you as well.
Michal Jurewicz, the designer of the Brooklyn DAC+ used to design converters in the studios of the major record companies; these units were used to make records for some of the most famous artists in the world.
No doubt you've heard about the Mytek Brooklyn, from all the awards it's won during the past few years for its performance. Since its release, the Brooklyn family of DACs has been one of our most popular DACs ever. It does everything...PCM 384 and DSD 256 playback, internal MQA Decoding, Preamplifier functionality, Balanced Headphone Amp and Phono Preamplifier. (Note: see the Brooklyn Bridge version on Jaguar for Network Streaming functionality)
The Brooklyn DAC+ was just released in late-2017 and features the following improvements from the original Brooklyn:
- 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
Note: Jaguar accepts Paypal, Credit/Debit Card payment in the Jaguar Online Store. We have Black and Silver units in stock. Any applicable sales tax is paid by Jaguar.

Check out the numerous original award-winning Brooklyn reviews:
"Even without MQA the Mytek Brooklyn offers exceptional value due to its versatility, flexibility, ergonomic elegance, and overall high level of sonic performance. Once you throw MQA into the equation, I have to say, “Game over” for any DAC or DAC manufacturer that can’t keep up."
"Anyone who doesn’t understand how digital recording functions may have problems comprehending why MQA works, but even if you don’t get the tech, if you critically listen you will hear the audible superiority of an MQA-encoded file when compared with the PCM or DSD original."
"...the Brooklyn ranks with the best DACs I’ve used regardless of price or internal DAC technology."
"Even if the new, "small" Mytek, due to the improved functionality, has become more expensive than its predecessor, the Brooklyn's price-sound relationship makes it almost irresistible. And if you are more into excitement, dynamics, and incredibly low bass than that last drop of spatial width, you will not be able to bypass the Mytek—neither in its price category nor also quite a bit beyond that."
"In a single, small device you get not only digital conversion of every relevant audio format, but also phono equalization and amplification, component switching, and remote volume control. Add a compact amp, speakers, and a turntable, and you’ll have a system worthy of any upscale Williamsburg studio apartment."
"It’s also voiced for the pro market: “Sonically, the Brooklyn DAC is designed for the most accurate representation of the recording, so the mastering engineer can hear what’s recorded with confidence and make appropriate mastering decisions,” Jurewicz wrote to me in an e-mail."
"While I've sharpened my critical keyboard waxing over the sonic attributes of the Mytek Brooklyn—much-more-than-a—DAC, its performance dictates as critical a listen as any other DAC. That's to say that while some DACs at this price point pale in comparison to more expensive offerings, Brooklyn is dangerous."
