For those wondering about the Dac vs. DAC+, the following is an excerpt from the Mytex website regarding how the DAC differs from the DAC+......
"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."
