  1. Brooklyn Amplifier

    Hi - I wasn't sure where on CA to talk about amplifiers, so starting this thread here. With the recent announcement this weekend (or so) at the Munich High-End show that Mytek will make a matching Class D Amplifier for the Brooklyn (called the Brooklyn Amplifier), I thought I would capture the information and what I learn about it (as I have a Brooklyn DAC and want to go Class D for my next amp). Info is very limited other than the release text and images. (no back panel yet). The name is aptly chosen because the Brooklyn AMP fits in the same housing as the DAC, albeit with an inch of extra depth. It will be available in the same silver and black finishes as the Brooklyn DAC. Apart from its elegant looks, the Brooklyn AMP produces 2 x 300 Watts of output power at 8 ohms and drives even the most difficult of loudspeakers with ease. Mytek claims to have created a "triode Class A-sounding Class D" design which will make the Brooklyn AMP relevant for audiophiles worldwide. The expected retail price of the Brooklyn AMP is 1,995 Euro/$, and delivery will start mid-summer 2017.
  2. Mytek just released a firmware update (2.34) for the Brooklyn enabling it to support USB HID volume control. Mytek's release notes: https://mytekdigital.com/download_library/firmware/BrooklynDAC_firmware_readme.txt Plugging my Brooklyn directly into my mac via USB worked just as expected: I could use the volume slider in the Roon software to adjust the Brooklyn's hardware volume settings. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get this to work through microRendu. I set the Volume Control setting in the microRendu > Settings > RoonReady > Volume Control to Hardware: But in Roon when I try change the volume, it says "Volume control is Fixed" And the Roon > Device Setup > External Volume Control drop down is disabled and fixed at None: Interestingly, after updating the Brooklyn's firmware to 2.34 the microRendu > Apps > DAC Diagnostics > "Set DAC to MAX volume" button works now (it didn't before). Has anyone been able to get their microRendu to work with the latest Brooklyn firmware, or another DAC supporting USB HID Volume control?
  3. Hi! I have a Rendu with new PSU coming (Longdog Audio/MCRU). Have a Brooklyn with external PSU. I know there is a new REGEN in the works. I have read lots of threads about other conditioners like W4S, IFI, LanRover and also Singer. Review thread here - https://audiobacon.net/2016/12/01/ifi-nano-iusb3-0-review-vs-uptone-regen-wyred-4-sound-recovery-and-audioquest-jitterbug/ I am wondering whether you have solid experiences of boosting the performance of the Rendu into a Mytek Brooklyn with USB conditioning OR USB to AES/SPDIF conversion. Such as the Singer or even Audiophilla box? The LanRover BTW seems to be a sticker job on the original device from ICRON.. See (for the UK) here - https://www.icronshop.com/icron-brand/icron-ranger-2301ge-lan I have been thinking of going USB to AES because the Brooklyn sounds identical to me with USB Rendu vs SPDIF Sonos connect.
